Sarah and Laurence had been carefully planning their wedding day and had a very good idea of what they were looking for right from the start. Their planning paid off too as their day ran without a hitch :)
Sarah and her best friend, Delphine got ready together at the beautiful Widbrook Barns in Bradford on Avon. They had a lovely relaxed morning with their hair and make-up lady Evie, preparing for the day. Sarah was very calm and the girls were ready with lots of time to spare. I loved her fishtail wedding dress and their flowers were stunning, mixing some pinks in with the red and white. The barns were the perfect location too for all of Sarah's preparation shots and I enjoyed being able to take her dress outdoors, photographing it in natural light.
Their beautiful wedding ceremony took place at West Barn in Bradford on Avon. The room was packed with their friends and family, many of whom had traveled quite a long way to be there. The barn looked amazing and after they were able to use the barn and the surrounding historic buildings for their wedding reception as well as their photographs - lovely :)
We then headed to The Bishopstrow Hotel and Spa in Warminster for their wedding reception. The hotel staff were amazing and really took care of Sarah and Laurence. They had an impressive afternoon tea in the Somerset Room and took it in turns to share the cakes and tea around. During the early evening, we took a walk around the hotel grounds to take their special photographs. Sarah and Laurence are such a lovely couple and relaxed very nicely into having their photograph taken. We even spotted a deer in the neighbouring field which was quite special.
In the evening they treated their guests to a Swing/Lindy-hop lesson, which was such good fun. Everyone joined in and everyone had massive grins on their faces. An amazing way to get the evening party started!
