Looking back to last month's weddings I wanted to share this one with you. It started off very wet and windy - why were most Saturdays this summer wet?! But the family were all very excited about the wedding and the bride had a relaxed time preparing with family and bridesmaids at home, regardless of the rain outside. Rosie was radiant.
I love taking candid pictures during the preparations - I think they are much more evocative than most posed pictures.

We all managed to get into the church with a lot of fiddling with umbrellas. The service was very moving, with a few tear being shed.
After the ceremony it was still raining so we stayed inside to take some more formal pictures of the wedding party.
I usually take pictures of everyone looking at me but then like to mix it up with more informal pictures where some natural smiles develop.
I made the most of the lovely light in the church to get some close up bridal couple shots.
Luckily it stopped raining once we arrived at Winkworth Farm so the rest of the pictures could be taken outside. This lovely old car was a surprise for Rosie and Ollie from Rosie's parents.
There are lots of lovely places to take pictures at Winkworth Farm.
One of many confetti shots which I love to do as expressions are never fixed!
Whilst the wedding guests were all going in to be seated ready for the wedding breakfast I took Rosie and Ollie away for 10 minutes of bride and groom photography. It's so important to make sure that I get good pictures of the bride and groom together with good lighting and a little posing.
The barn in Winkworth Farm is a great place for photography with some lovely light. I could easily have stayed there for an extra hour just taking pictures!
As I was busy taking different pictures of the couple the wind blew Rosie's veil over both their heads. I sometimes take pictures like this but it can look a little cheesy, but this was completely unplanned and gave some great expressions after this shot!
Thanks for inviting Simon and me to be your wedding photographers. We really enjoyed the day and wish you both the best for your future lives together.
