“Gorgeous Andrew, Thank you for photographing for us! It was an awesome and magical day and I am so delighted with the photos.. ” – Nancy
I knew that Andrew and Nancy’s wedding was going to be completely unique, amazing and different from the first moment that they got in touch to enquire as to whether I was available for the day. Nancy emailed me over their wedding invitation describing how she was going to arrive for her ceremony on horse back, how it was all going to take place in the orchard on her parent’s farm, how guests would be encouraged to camp overnight, there would be a music festival theme, open mic speeches an that Andrew and Nancy would be making their own cakes and having a decorating competition judged by their guests……..not to mention the family dog being the ring bearer and the 29 bridesmaids!
However, there was one defining moment in the day that really summed it up for me….during the outdoor ceremony it absolutely and completely poured with rain, so much so that you could hardly hear what was being said, everyone got soaked through and I remember photographing away literally soaked to the skin. In the height of the storm, just after they had said their vows, Nancy’s Mum who was conducting the ceremony asked the sodden and dripping crowd if they would like to forget singing the next song cut things short and head inside. There was a massive and resounding “No” and everyone resolutely and in amazingly good spirits sang away and sat out the rain right to the bitter end.
Clearly Nancy and Andrew’s friends absolutely adore them! The atmosphere on the day was incredible, there was such an atmosphere of celebration and fun and it really was one of the most memorable days I have photographed for a long time.
I’ve included some of my favourites below.
If you’re planning a wedding, no matter how different, individual or even much more traditional then
– I’d love to hear from you!
