If you’ve seen Beth and Simon’s couple shoot in Richmond Park on the blog then you will know how in love these two are ❤️ Russell and I love to document amazing fun weddings but ultimately what matters most is the love and I have never seen two people look at each other the way these two do. Their wedding day was all about their family and friends but it was like the two of them were literally walking on air and they couldn’t take their eyes off each other. Ladies and gents, that’s true love that is.
I feel like I can’t rave enough about these two. They are just the kindest and most gentle people you could ever meet. It was such a joy to see them get married and be there to capture it all! ✨
Beth started the day getting ready with her bridesmaids and family. I love this part of a wedding day - it can be a bit chaotic and this was no exception. There were so many people bustling in and out of the house but there was so much happiness. Everyone was so excited to get to the wedding.
Beth and Simon were wed at United Reformed Church by their friend and it was such a moving ceremony. Just look at the photographs below, everyone was so happy :)
The couple and their guests headed to Captains Wood Barn for the wedding reception and wow - what a venue. Ever since I first saw this place on instagram I’ve been dreaming about photographing a wedding here, you’ll see why! The barn is just so beautiful and the woodlands that surround the barn are just 👌
The drinks reception was held in the woodland and the bridal party travelled there by tractor which was awesome!
Like us, Beth and Simon love coloured smoke grenades. They just make the most epic portraits and once I saw that the bridesmaids all had matching jackets I insisted we go out for some bridesmaid portraits with them. You can see the results below, how badass do those babes look!
After a delicious meal, hilarious speeches and cake cutting (with an epic sword 😏) there was an awesome ceilidh. A ceilidh is my absolute favourite wedding tradition. Everyone should have them! Simon’s family are Scottish and it isn’t a proper ceilidh without all the men wearing kilts 😉
Such an awesome wedding. Guys, shall we do it again? 😎
