Cassie and Matt got married on the 10th August 2014, perfect timing to catch the tail end of weather warnings in place for the end of Hurricane Bertha! No getting away from it the morning started wet . . . very wet; but to their credit Cassie and Matt never let their spirits drop.

I arrived at Cassie’s family home in Whetstone with Simone Cattell making up Cassie to look even more gorgeous than she already is. The house had a lovely vibe as dad patiently waited for mother of the bride, bridesmaids and Cassie to make their entrance. In contrast Marco, my second shooter had arrived at Matt’s place to find him and his Best Man playing play station, priorities, hey?!? After a penalty shoot out the men smartened themselves up into some very neat contemporary outfits.

The service was held at St Peters Church Whetstone, just a few yards from Cassie’s family home. Luckily a campervan had been hired to take the radiant bride to the church. The rain continued to hammer down throughout the service and as a change to our working practice we took the opportunity at the end of the ceremony to spend a bit of time shooting newly wed portraits in the church.

The location for the reception was The Griffin Inn in Swithland; a beautiful barn conversion on the back of the village pub. Just like magic the campervan with Matt and Cassie arrived and along with it so did the sunshine. Phew! I’ve never been so pleased for a couple. They looked gorgeous, had not let the earlier weather bother them, and totally deserved the brilliant sunshine and blue skies that played out for the rest of the day. We made the most of it by shooting the couple using the backdrop of a disused farm. Lovely contrast here with rust and scratched paint against elegant menswear and a beautiful bride in her off the shoulder sophisticated lace dress. Happiness and class oozed from them both; even with Cassie in her wellies! With lovely family and friends around them a relaxed chilled out vibe was the flavour of the day. The speeches after the meal had the reception roller coasting from full on laughter to tears in a matter of seconds; very emotional.

We loved all the details and the consistent styling of your day. You were both great to work with and as a result have created some stunning photographs at every opportunity. It was a pleasure to be part of your day and capture it for you. Big congratulations Mr and Mrs Collins!! xx
