Last summer I had the absolute honour of being Daniella & Edward’s wedding photographer for their very intimate marquee wedding at Edward’s family home in Somerset.
It was a later start for me than normal, with the ceremony starting at 5pm in the village church. The bridal prep was a lot of fun, with a palpable energy moving its way around Daniella’s bedroom. Everyone was in great spirits and that set the tone for the rest of the day.
The boys had already made their way to the pub so I followed suit to capture those pre wedding nerves being settled by a couple of swift halves. Then off to the church.
Having already tied the knot officially in London, this allowed Daniella and Edward’s church ceremony to be very personal and unique to them with a good friend conducting the service and another playing the organ! Walking out of church they were showered in confetti before jumping in a vintage 220 SE, in possibly the best colour and trim combo I’ve seen. Pretty damn cool. I managed to grab the guys for a quick portrait session in the garden at the house before the heavens opened. Somehow we managed to miss the rain all day, thankfully.
Some very moving speeches followed a delicious wedding breakfast put together by the amazing team at full flavour events. Particularly from Dnaiella’s father who had the room in the palm of his hand. I feel so privileged to witness these outpourings of emotion and I will never take that for granted.
Edward’s mother wrapped up the speeches with some beautiful words which seemed entirely off the cuff, which again had everyone in awe. Now it was time to move outside and get the party started! Bonfires, fireworks and with the scrumpy flowing, the band quickly got the wheels turning and the dance floor pumping. At this point it’s time for me to get the flash on and get stuck into the middle of it.
