What a fun and relaxed day Hannah & Mike’s wedding was! It was an absolute pleasure from start to finish, capturing their incredibly happy faces throughout the day and the joy and happiness that their friends and family were sharing with them. As an extra bonus, Hannah’s sister had made it all the way over from Australia to be part of the day so we made sure we got plenty of photos of them together – precious family memories.
With both the bride and the groom arriving at the venue early, there was no time pressure and the whole prep was very chilled and well organised. Hannah looked beautiful in her gorgeous wedding dress and Mike looked very happy to see her walking down the aisle with her father. The ceremony was very personalised and full of romance and then the happy couple headed back down the aisle as Mr & Mrs Crotty. As ever, the team at the barn wedding venue put on a fantastic spread of canapes with the drinks reception and the couple enjoyed greeting their guests outside in the courtyard in the lovely spring sunshine.
There were group shots, a confetti tunnel and plenty of garden games to entertain guests old and young alike and we were also able to grab a few couple shots around the venue before it was time for the receiving line into the wedding breakfast room. The room was alive with laughter and enjoyment as the whole wedding party had the yummy food, and then the speeches were made.
Following on from the meal there was time for some beautiful couple shots and the newlyweds greeted their evening guests, in time for the cake cutting and first dance. The party started and continued well into the night, with Hannah & Mike just having the biggest smiles on their faces.
Hannah & Mike, I really enjoyed your wedding, your friends and family all made me feel so welcome and I had a wonderful time capturing your images. I wish you a very happy marriage together, you are clearly made for each other!
