‘The photos you have sent across left me speechless, they are absolutely stunning, I can’t stop looking at them all. You went above and beyond for our wedding and I can’t recommend you enough Claire. Thank you again for capturing our wonderful memories in such a beautiful way’

What a wedding!  I knew it was going to be a great one after capturing Chloe & Charles on their pre-wedding shoot.  Relaxed and up for some fun, we had a laugh, and chatted about their wedding day plans. Marquee weddings, held at home- or in this case on a home farm, are always so much fun. Relaxed but with a real party vibe, they can have less structure and formalities and are always really personal to the couple. The boys on the stag do had committed the ultimate crime and Charles turned up to his pre-wedding shoot with only one eyebrow!  Luckily, the wedding day was a good few weeks after and the eyebrow had made a full recovery!

Wedding Day

It was a beautiful sunny day for this fabulous marquee wedding. I had a lovely morning with the girls and a very chilled bride to be! After the wedding ceremony at Meriden church, in the West Midlands, the party headed off in the sunshine to Charles’ home farm in Berkswell.

Marquee Wedding

The Marquee looked stunning, standing magnificent in a huge field on the farm. Light and airy, with loads of space to party, the couple had decorated the marquee with personal details and hanging paper lanterns.  Chloe has a love for horses and this was reflected in the marquee with the details which was a lovely touch, unique to them. There is something brilliant about home weddings in the great outdoors.  The sun shone down all day and there was a real relaxed, party atmosphere which comes from an informal setting such as this.  Hay bales made great seating outside the marquee and some guests had fun kicking a football around. Most of the photographs were candid and natural. Charles had arranged for a tractor with a forklift to raise me up for a fun group shot.  A first for me!

Chloe & Charles make a gorgeous couple and didn’t stop smiling and laughing all day.  Surrounded by family and friends (who were a great crowd, lots of fun!) they had the best day.  It was amazing to be part of it.
