Hannah and Charlie hosted their wedding day at the Euridge Orangery on Saturday 20th July 2019. Euridge sits on the edge of the village of Colerne, on the borders of Somerset and Wiltshire, in the heart of the Cotswolds, The estate is built within the grounds of famous explorer Sir Walter Raleigh’s old hunting lodge. My photographic coverage began with the bridal party, who had set up in one of the 17th century stone cottages located on the estate. As it was a short distance to the main house where the boys were getting ready, I split my time between the two parties. The marriage ceremony took place in the nearby village of Colerne at the St John the Baptist Church, a building which in part date backs to the 12th century. After the ceremony and confetti had been thrown, Charlie drove his new bride away in a classic open top sports cars. Meanwhile their guests made their way to Euridge where they served drinks on the roof top terrace in the gardens of Euridge Orangery. The newlyweds used this time to walk their two little dogs, which provided me an opportunity for a couple of shots as they did so. These were taken in the normal flow of their stroll, as with most of my clients, they did want overly posed portraits. Though we did a few family groups shots, as this pleases parents tremendously. And with a little analytical thinking they do not need to take up too much time. As the day progressed the wedding breakfast was served, and some comical and emotive speeches followed. The evening bought about the cutting of the cake and Hannah and Charlies’ first dance as a married couple. The wedding band then increased the tempo, and the collected family and friends were invited onto the dance floor.
“The pics have made our week!”
“Beautifully captured the mood. (They) most definitely brought back to life the funny, happy, crazy (Charlie’s groomsman!) and for us poignant moments.”
“Just beautiful shots.”
