I have hardly been able to wait to share the images of Chris and Rachel's stunningly intimate vintage wedding in the Cotswolds last month. Rachel initially contacted me a few months ago, explaining that they were having a very small wedding with just 28 guests, and there was to be no evening reception. They booked me for a 4 hour period, to cover the end of them both getting ready, through to the speeches after the ceremony.
I'm always a little anxious about shooting "by-the-hour" weddings as it's often a struggle to fit it all in, but everything about this day just slotted together absolutely perfectly. It helped that the bride and groom were both insanely relaxed - Rachel didn't start getting ready until around an hour before the ceremony!
Hyde Barn, in Stow-on-the-Wold, was the perfect setting for their beautiful day. We comfortably had time after the ceremony to get a few family shots, before I took Chris and Rachel off around the gardens of the barn for their bride and groom session.
I have so much love for this wedding! Hopefully you'll share this when you browse through the images...Happy Viewing!
