Chinnor Church then a rustic barn in Buckinghamshire
Nicole and Matt's wedding in August 2016 was everything an English country wedding should be. A lovely Oxfordshire church, a rustic Buckinghamshire Barn, a gorgeous bride and handsome groom, lots of family and of course, lots of partying. It was a pleasure to photograph.
Our day began as usual, with us working together as a husband and wife wedding photography team. I met up with Matt and his family, whilst Sam headed off to capture the bride and bridesmade preparation.
I got to the church in plenty of time to photograph Matt, his "guys" and the guests arriving. Sam arrived soon later to be in plenty of time for the all important bride arrival photos. Due to some vintage car trouble, Nicole was a little late in arriving, which of course, as a beautiful bride, was her prerogative!
Due to the requirements of the vicar, both Sam and I photographed at the back of the church, rather than with me at the front of the ceremony, and Sam at the back. Whilst disappointing, we always remember that a church wedding is a religious ceremony, and that the vicar/minister/priest is ultimately in charge, so of course we abided by her wishes. It a good idea for any bride and grooms to be reading this, to check with their minister as to their policy on photography, in plenty of time before the wedding day, just in case of any unexpected disappointment.
Once the service was over, we headed off to Notley Tythe Barn, a new venue for us at this time, but one we were extremely impressed by. It's a lovely rural rustic barn, with efficient and friendly staff. Highly recommended!
After some both funny and moving speeches, and some time for some natural, unposed photos of Nicole and Matt, the partying soon got into full swing! As always, we loved this part of the day, which we always ensure we capture lots of photos of.
A sparkler run outside the barn concluded our day.
Our thanks to Nicole and Matt, we loved capturing your day. All the best possible for your future together!
