Kerry & Steve decided to get hitched at the rather lovely Hyde Barn in Stow-on-the-Wold. Nestled in a tranquil Cotswold landscape, this venue is the perfect place to host a wedding and subsequent celebrations at a single location.
Fortunately the sun most definitely had his hat on so Kerry & Steve tied the knot alfresco style, opting for an outdoor ceremony under a beautiful arbour. This ultimately turned the elegant ceremony hall into a photogenic backdrop.
I originally met these guys at an event in Bristol, and after a brief chat we hit off straight away. They loved my photos, so after a second casual meeting at their home they decided to book my services, yay!
Kerry and Steve have both been married in the past and also have children from past relationships, two of which are called Finley (this was not confusing, not even in the slightest!)
Aside from the obvious downside of a marriage not working out, doing it second time round meant that they really knew what they wanted from their day: a super chilled affair with natural and relaxed photos. They also made a great effort with the decorations, personalising the venue with pretty little details, perfect for my style of photography.
Later in the day Britain’s Got Talent celebrity Josh Curnow treated us to a couple of tasteful accoutic sets and really got everybody boogieing on the dance floor.
To put the icing on the cake (if you’ll pardon the expression!) there was an amazingly romantic sunset, which we obviously took full advantage of!
