I love the variety that weddings bring! There always different people, different venues, different themes and concepts! Charlie and Alex’s wedding was very much a village affair! Everything was within walking distance. It was a couple of minutes from the bride’s parents home to the church and then the same distance back to the Village Hall. The reception actually took place in the field behind the Village hall. A massive and beautiful Teepee (or Tipi) had been erected. It was beautifully decorated. The weather was a bit temperamental on the day! Some nice sunshine as the bride walked to the church and lots of rain on the way back! Nevertheless, the spirits were high and nobody seemed to mind it!
I started the day at the church documenting the arrival of guests before heading to catch the bride and her family as they walked to the church. It was a really jovial atmosphere. Everyone was friendly, the bridesmaids were fun and full of energy and there was a great vibe. The ceremony was in beautiful rural church with a lovely vicar. He was friendly and amenable to photography which is always a bonus. A splendid choir sang and especially a beautiful song (cannot remember the name) as the bride walked down the aisle. After the I Do’s, the first kiss and the signing of the register it was time to talk to the reception. By this time, it was raining quite consistently. However everyone enjoyed the short walk and arriving to the Teepee!
At the Teepee were waiting drinks, canapés and a Mariachi band! The Teepee was great fun and guests were having fun with everything that was going on! Luckily the rain eased off for a bit and guests were able to go outside for a bit. We also used this break in the weather to capture a few family photos and portraits before the wedding breakfast. The meal was lovely and it was followed by speeches. They were heartfelt and funny. The first dance followed shortly after.
I really enjoy it when I stay to capture the evening shenanigans. There was lots of dancing, marshmallow eating and generally people having fun! I was incredibly well looked after by Charlie and Alex and all their guests. It was true pleasure to be there and document their wedding day. Below are some of my favourite images from their wedding, I really hope that you look through them and enjoy them. The slideshow to music is a bit more dynamic and the best way to view them. If you are getting married and looking for a Teepee wedding photographer in Buckinghamshire (or any other region for that matter), I would love to hear from you.
