I felt very privileged to shoot the wedding day of some lovely friends of mine, Matt & Laura. I was so excited to photograph this wedding because I knew it was going to be just beautiful…I wasn’t wrong! Our boy Matthew has been guest to, I believe, HUNDREDS of weddings so we were really proud that it was his turn this time. What a wonderful couple they make too!
On the 9th of June, my day started with Gloucester Girl Laura, and Gloucester is where we lay our scene. I met with the bridal party at Brockworth Court, where they were getting ready and also holding the reception. This was not actually an official wedding venue. Laura was very cunning when it came to choosing the location. She has passed by this gorgeous place many a time to visit her grandparents nearby and always loved the look of it. So, she went to the house, knocked on the door and hey-presto! <– A good tip for brides who want a unique wedding venue where you can possibly strike a great deal!
The gardens were bounteous in locations for the couples shots. I had so many photos to choose between that I love of Matt & Laura. They were so easy to photograph and I couldn’t pick out of the selection, so I’ve put them all up! I wanted to give a big thank you to all the groomsmen and the bridal party as well. You were great fun and the photos are a success because you were up for a laugh and had some fab ideas. Well done to you all!
The evening party took flight with a beautiful rendition of Bon Iver’s ‘Skinny Love’ sung by Pete Boddington and it soared higher into the night with an amazing band that Matt himself performed in. Buzzing with high energy, some awesome covers were delivered with the gorgeous lead singer, Maddie Holland, having to contend with some over enthusiastic guests dancing and singing/possibly screaming along (One of them being my husband…Oh Dan)!
This was a rather perfect day, all the way through to the very end. Laura, you looked so stunning and I am so happy for you both, that you have found your missing pieces in one another. I really believe you two make a fantastic fit together and of course, I wish you all the greatest happiness in your future together.
