Gemma & Matt have been completely involved with how they wanted their wedding day photos to look right from our very first meeting so I have been looking forward to photographing their big day for ages and when I awoke to a foggy start on Saturday I had everything crossed that the fog would burn off to leave us with a dry autumnal day and that’s exactly what we got!
Gemma was predictably cool as a cucumber whilst getting ready, really enjoying the time with her bridesmaids at the lovely Hotel Du Vin in Winchester – a boutique hotel crammed full of amazing locations in which to take photos and none more so than her amazing bedroom which included a roll top bath in it! Matt on the other hand was reportedly a different story but we wont go there will we Matt?
I met up with Matt, his Best Man and ushers at Clock Barn before their ceremony started and was so excited to see everything, including their flowers and cake, was exactly as Gemma had explained she had dreamed of, a HUGE testament to both Aunties who had helped! After a lovely ceremony Gemma, Matt, their bridal party and I popped off to the countryside surrounding the amazing Clock Barn to take their portraits and despite a few less hay bales than we were expecting I hope I’ve managed to get the images we’d all planned!
After a fantastic wedding breakfast I opened the vintage style photo booth to Gemma & Matt’s guests and spent the next couple of hours taking silly & fun photos of them, oh how I laughed! A quick mention of an apology here to the 3 fellas I made cry (with laughter I hope!) – you’ll be relieved to know I decided to protect your privacy and not publish “that” photo here! However if anyone would like to see “that” photo, mail me 😉
So whilst Gemma & Matt jet off on honeymoon here are a few of my favourite photos for you to see before their gallery goes live on the 5th November. Please feel free to leave your comments….
