At the end of July we had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Fran and Andy, set in the beautiful Bramley countryside.
They were married at the very spacious St. Bede's Church in Basingstoke. Highlights of the ceremony included readings from their fathers, a choir and a very moving solo piece from Fran's cousin whilst they signed the register. Before guests left they were treated to ice cream in the grounds of the church. Yummy!
Back at Fran's family home in Bramley, a champagne reception awaited. As guests began to trickle in we walked around, taking in and capturing the vast details and efforts that had gone in to making one of the most beautiful receptions we have ever seen. So much had been beautifully handcrafted by them for the day from the stunning bridal bouquets and church flowers, to the signage that adorned the gardens and guided guests around the little nooks and crannies. Around every corner there was something to discover - a skittles alley, a photo booth with props, and a little hideaway whiskey den! To the edge of the garden was a large wheat field which made for gorgeous shots of the bride and groom as the sun was setting.
After an afternoon tea and hog roast we left as everyone danced the night away, reeling from a truly magical day which will be talked about for years to come!
