What an absolute pleasure to be asked to be part of Emma and Tom’s wedding day at Shustoke Farm Barns in Warwickshire. We were entrusted with capturing this gorgeous day by friends of our’s who happen to be Emma’s sister and her partner. I think the main theme of this wedding was fun. I am pretty sure you will pick up on that quite early on in the photos! Oh and there were tears…lots of tears 🙂
Emma was getting ready at home with bridesmaids and her Mum. Lisa Little was doing the make up and Emma did her own hair, being a very successful hairdresser herself. Check out her hair piece from Miss Clemmie Bridal. Her dress came from Wed2B and she looked stunning in it. The bridesmaids had dresses from Victoria Lou Bridal. During the morning we had a trip down the garden path for a few photos in the bar. What a place! I was so jealous.
Tom was getting ready with his groomsmen at a local hotel. There were presents to open and a letter to read. There begins the tears!
We arrived at the venue where guests were being greeted by the groomsmen and made our way into the barn which looked incredible with flowers by Willow and Wild and some gorgeous decor additions by Little Wedding Treasures including the arch at the end of the aisle and the postbox. They had also supplied the dressing gowns and glasses.
The ceremony was conducted by Warwickshire Registrars and as always was lovely. They always make the couple feel relaxed. I have to mention the music at this point. Letitia George sang during the ceremony…AMAZING…and then also throughout the evening.
Once married the fun began. Drinks, canapes and photos. Emma and Tom were so natural in front of the camera too.
The guests were welcomed into the wedding breakfast once the barn had been turned around under the watchful eye of Megan who was looking after everyone on the day. The speeches were fab! So funny and so emotional too. Yes…there were more tears!
Afterwards we had some time for some more photos including an out of control champagne shot which will forever live in my memory. We were ready with the lighting and camera though and got it all. Brilliant moment!
The evening got under way well before the first dance. These guests know how to party. Even Kev got collared at one point!
A brilliant day. Thanks for trusting us to capture it all Emma and Tom. We loved it. If family and friends want to see more then contact Emma or Tom for their password and discount code for prints.
