I shot the most images I have ever shot in one day at this Wedding….
A stunning late June day & my first time shooting at Keythorpe Manor in Leicestershire. What a beautiful venue, with so many great backdrops for photographs, manicured gardens & stunning views over open countryside. Thanks to the attentive Nayha & the rest of team Keythorpe, the day ran like clockwork.
Also covering the day was the lovely Dan of Digital Dream Productions, who was a real pleasure to work alongside (thanks Dan for all your help on the day – particularly getting that dress into that tree)…!
It was an absolute corker, everything a Wedding should be. Full of FUN, laughter, family & friends, everyone was so looked after, there were loads of lovely little touches & SOOOO many details, Gareth wrote an individual poem for each guest (90)!! Watch out for the Bears theme & Chris’ hand chopped logs…!!
Topped off with beaut weather, gorgeous food, (a very posh bear-b-que & chip van) The LONGEST & most revealing speeches! (yup – we all know Gareth a little to well now…) A naked cake dripping with berries. A live band & an epic first dance routine where friends with all the MOOOOVES joined in. A Batman Wedding ring, oh yes & THAT DRESS!! (oh wow Claire)!!!
The ceremony was held in the marquee, simply dressed with beautiful flowers. Claire & Gareth chose to use the stunning barn with its exposed brickwork & beams for their Wedding Breakfast, speeches & DANCING!!
Keythorpe also has a chic little cottage (with very big mirrors) on site where Claire, her Mum, Aunty & Bridesmaids got ready. Claire & Gareth also stopped here their first night as a married couple.
Thank you so much Bears for trusting me to capture your day, your family & friends made me feel so welcome – I don’t think we stopped laughing all day! I loved it!
