Upwaltham Barns is such a beautiful venue to shoot at any time of year. But for me, Autumn has to be the most colour-rich season and such a delight to photograph. All those delicious deep reds and warm sumptuous oranges and of course pumpkins galore! Laurie & Katie really did not scrimp on the details of their big day which as well as being Autumn themed was based on their love of birds. Their ring bearer was even a stuffed bird called Grahame!
I loved being a part of their big day at Upwaltham. Katie looked so stunning and took everyone’s breath away with her beautiful flower crown. In fact all the flowers were so pretty – lovingly put together and arranged by Rose Cottage Flowers. I’ve photographed a few weddings now where Kerry has been the florist and she never fails to impress with her creations.
Katie’s hair & make up was fabulously applied and styled by Charlotte from Polka Dot Hair & Make-up. I love working with Charlotte she really is so lovely and laid back and a delight to have by your side on your wedding morning.
Laurie & Katie’s friends and family welcomed me and I had a great time with them all and capturing all the fun, love and laughter of the day. In the evening they chose to not really have a first dance but just get everyone up on the dance floor with them – they all threw some great shapes! Oh and I loved Laurie’s dad’s spectacular home-made doughnut wall! Wow…! I just found out co-op’s doughnuts are vegan so I think I might have to indulge in a couple myself over the coming weekend … well I can’t eat most Easter eggs so doughnuts it’ll have to be!
I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I did taking them. If you know anyone getting married this Autumn please share this with them and let them know I’m currently offering some pretty good deals on late September, October and November 2018 weddings! Contact me for more information.
