Laura and Nathan’s Wedding ceremony
I’m taking you back to a mostly rainy day a Kingscote Barn Wedding back in mid-September.
Laura and Nathan decided to get married at this beautiful barn wedding venue set in the wonderful Cotswold Countryside. The Staff at Kingscote Barn are really helpful and passionate about their work, so it was great to work alongside them.
Documentary Wedding Photography
They first found me online over a year ago. After looking at quite a good number of Wedding websites and becoming rather disillusioned, they finally stumbled upon mine and loved what they saw. They were looking for an authentic style of Documentary Wedding photography. They wanted images that told the story of the wedding day in a natural unforced way. After looking at my website gallery they loved the way I conveyed humour, fun, and love in my images. They certainly didn’t want anything over posed or staged.
Rainy Wedding day
I hadn’t had a rainy Wedding all year. However, that’s OK Weddings are all about people and not the weather. There is always great opportunity’s to capture great moments come sunshine, rain or snow!
In the morning Laura and the girls got ready at Doughton Cottages just down the road. I arrived to find the usual buzz of activity at bridal preparations, what with all the makeup and hair getting done. Mum spinning around making cups of tea and Dad pacing around trying to find a quiet corner! Mum kindly offered me a cuppa while I set to work capturing all the activity on my trusty camera.
Families at Weddings
Laura eventually arrived at the venue all made up in a friends restored classic yellow VW. Laura’s side of the family was mostly from up North while Nathan’s bunch were from Swansea in Wales. Both families were full of personalities and characters. I love to see two families get together at Weddings. It’s wonderful to observe and to photograph all the family interactions.
Despite the weather, everybody was having a really great time and come the evening the party really kicked off!
Instead of going for the traditional DJ or lie band, Laura and Nathan opted for a night of silent clubbing with headphones. I must confess this was the first time I had witnessed such an event at any wedding. I immediately grabbed myself a pair of headphones and joined in with the party phone as I went about capturing the moments. It was particularly good to see Grandma and Grandpa having a go!
