What can I say apart from its so good to be back doing what I love so much. Weddings are a huge part of my life and photographing them means so much in so many ways. I do my best to feel not only the connection between my couples but also their energy and I try and tap into their likes and personalities throughout the whole process.
Charlotte and Tom's day was indeed no different. Having only spoken on the phone previously (due to covid restrictions) I knew I would have to work extra hard.
As soon as I arrived on the Friday morning I was greeted with such reassuring warmth. Any feelings of anxiety quashed immediately by friendly faces and the familiar sight of fellow wedding suppliers.
The beautiful farmhouse which has been in the family for eight generations was full to the brim of unique trinkets and family heirlooms along with trophies and photographs from charlotte's equine past. The house had so much soul and the most encapsulating antique light that slid across all its interior walls.
There was no air of panic or stress about the place as the morning progressed. Charlotte was incredibly collected and even had time to cook some lunch for everyone along with creating the final seating plan for the wedding breakfast! Pure dedication.
The whole day fully reminded me of why I do this and most importantly of why I LOVE doing this.
The people, the places and the emotions surrounding this wedding were exactly what a true British wedding should be. A celebration of two people surrounded by their most important loved ones. Literally the best return to weddings I could have hoped for and for that I am extremely grateful to everyone involved.
