Happy couple smile on their wedding day in the Midlands

An autumn wedding at Gaynes park with Owls!

Gaynes Park is one of the few wedding venues that we used to have on our doorstep. Which came in handy last year as from October – December, every single wedding we shot was at Gaynes Park! The first of these weddings was Laurence and Andie’s. And that a day that was to set the benchmark high. The weather may not have been perfect, but you’d never have known. It didn’t dampen spirits or limit the fun at all.

In part, this was thanks to a host of fantastic suppliers. From the gorgeous flowers by Lily & May, to the beautiful hair and Make up from Team Glam. Guests were also treated to a surprise in the form of a visit from Lee Valley farms, who provided birds of prey! It was wonderful to see these magnificent birds and see something a bit different at a wedding. Guests really embraced this part of the day, even though it was an outdoor activity and it was raining. Just.

The first look

One of my favourite moments from the day was being able to capture the moment that Laurence saw Andie for the first time. When Andie entered the room it lit up and Laurences reaction was lovely. You could tell how important that moment was and it totally showed.

There were also some amazing tunes in the evening courtesy of  Terry Lewis. It’s not often that you hear System of a down blasting at a wedding, but I loved it!

We finished up the evening with Andie, Laurence and couple of cigars. No one rocks a cigar in a wedding dress quite like Andie did! We had a brilliant day with these two, so here are just a few teaser photos from the day before they head off on honeymoon tomorrow. We’re looking forward to returning to Gaynes park in a couple of weeks!
