A small private autumn wedding in October with this lovely couple and about 20 guests. We had mainly sunshine and one big downpour! Luckily the rain came as we had just finished the outdoor photos!



With the groom and guests arriving, the couple had really hoped for an outdoor ceremony, which was possible as the sun came out for them!


Proud dad walked our lovely bride down the aisle, and we headed into the ceremony, watched closely by the family dog! At times, the dog quietly wiggled himself free of his collar and became more involved! An emotional service, and the couple wrote their own vows to each other. 


Some natural candid photos after the ceremony. For me, this is a great time for the family and friends to congratulate the couple on getting married! 


The confetti car bomb! The guests had no idea that a confetti bomb was about to go off. I grouped the guests together for a photo around their wedding car, with the couple inside. (the dog was kept a distance away due to the bang noise that was coming) I counted to 3 for everyone to smile, and on the '3' the driver set of the confetti! 


Into the 'quiet time' for the couple only photos, then we added the children. 


A fabulous afternoon tea, with the speeches and dinosaur wedding cake cutting. After this, everyone had a break and then later a 3 course dinner to end the day....The couple had about 350 finished photos.
