Sean & Angela had such a beautiful wedding at Upwaltham Barns last July and it was a total pleasure to be a part of their day and photograph it all for them. As florists they made a fantastic job of making sure the blooms were abundant and beautiful too and Angela’s Jenny Packham Great Gatsby inspired wedding dress “Esme” was just out of this world and she looked absolutely stunning in it. Judging by the look on Sean’s face as she walked up the aisle I’d say he agreed with me on that one!
We started the day at the Avisford hotel whilst Angela and her bridesmaids and bridesman all got ready and we had a right giggle – then it was onto the lovely little cottage at Upwaltham to put on THE dress! Sean surprised Angela with a giant cookie too – perhaps reminding her of the ceremony time!?! I was able to flit between the bridal suite and the courtyard downstairs to snap the guests arriving and Sean & his best man meeting and greeting everyone, capturing moments that Angela was missing.
The ceremony itself was lovely, there were some very special readings and it was very emotional… then after some confetti throwing everyone grabbed an ice cream from Gelato Gemelli and we did a few group shots and then I whisked the happy couple off for 10 minutes on their own for some romantic portraits around the barns.
Everyone enjoyed a sit down meal in the main barn which looked gorgeous with lots more flowers and cute paper pom poms hanging from the ceiling. Then the evening guests arrived, the DJ cranked up the volume and the party got into full swing! I of course stayed on for a bit to capture some boogie woogie shots then just as I was leaving we managed to grab a quick sunset (ish!) shot in the kissing gate in front of the barn.
Such a wonderful day… hopefully you’ll all agree from the photos… enjoy!
