Today I am delighted to be sharing with you a gorgeous Grittenham Barn laid back country wedding, that of Sheralyn & Shane’s from last May. It was such a beautiful day; the couple, the guests, the details and of course the atmosphere was amazing too. A day full of love and laughter and I really did enjoy every minute and every frame snapped!
I joined Sheralyn & the girls at her parent’s house in the morning, the lovely Charlotte from Polka dot Hair and Make-up was there to tame everyone’s locks and create some fabulous up dos & Debbie from Daisy Sussex was on hand to beautify everyone too. Sheralyn took everyone’s breath away including her dad’s as she walked down the stairs and revealed her stunning Maggie Sottero dress for the first time. Wow!
I left them all for a little alone time to join the boys at Boxgrove Priory where they were busy greeting guests and handing out orders of service. I could feel the nervous excitement in the air there as everyone anticipated the arrival of the bride… especially Shane. Sheralyn took a lot more people’s breath away that day as she walked down the aisle and their ceremony was just magical. After some confetti and a few group shots we did some romantic portraits round the back of the church in the old ruins. What a backdrop!!
Later at the barns we did a few more couple’s portraits and fun group shots but as always I concentrated mainly on capturing the atmosphere – mixing and mingling in to snap those all important natural shots that really tell the story of the day. I had fun with all the beautiful details too, Sheralyn & Shane had really gone to town with the flowers (by her auntie!) & bunting (all home made) & the large LOVE letters from Doris Loves – we couldn’t resist carefully taking them into one of the sheds for a “cool” shot! The fun didn’t stop either as everyone boogied the night away to the fabulous band Frankie & Louie.
It really was the perfect wedding day and all came together so beautifully…. I know Sheralyn & Shane had the best day ever too and I’m so grateful to them for booking me. Their wedding has already been featured over on The Vintage Wedding Society blog but here are some of my favourites from the day too… enjoy!!
