On Friday I shot Natalie and Ryan’s wedding at the Tythe Barn in Launton and what a fantastic day it was.
Natalie got ready in the Bridal Suite at the barn which is the perfect place for bridal prep with loads of space and natural light and the excitement was definitely growing as the bridesmaids got into their dresses. Natalie was next and she looked amazing in her vintage style lace dress which photographed beautifully.
The sun was blazing, not a cloud in the sky and that was great news as it meant they could have an outdoor ceremony.
The boys arrived early and all seemed very chilled as the guests shortly followed and began to take their seats. One of their friends played Natalie’s entrance song on guitar as she walked down the aisle with her very proud father.
It was a very short ceremony, relaxed and filled with lots of laughter! which is exactly what Natalie and Ryan wanted as it meant more time to party!
The garden was used to its full advantage as everyone enjoyed the sunshine and a few drinks before dinner which was a table side picnic prepared by Jamie Oliver’s company “Fabulous Feasts” and as per usual it went down very well.
Next up was the speeches which were hilarious! Loads of funny stories and banter from the guests as Ryan, Natalie, FOB and the Best Man all played their part in entertaining the crowd.
A few sun downers in the garden as the sun was starting to set and before we knew it it was time for Natalie and Ryan’s first dance as husband and wife and they did a great job before everyone joined them to get the party truly started!
Huge congratulations to Natalie and Ryan on a great wedding! I hope you have a great time in Brazil, Costa Rica and Peru…how can you not! I really look forward to showing you the full collection when you get back but for now heres your sneak peek!
(Big thanks also to Tony Bayliss for assisting and 2nd shooting on the day, great to have you along).
