Sam and Steve tied the knot at the beautiful Tudor Barn this July. It was a truly great day and I feel so honored to have been a part of it. Sam and her fabulous bride tribe started the day by getting ready at Sam and Steve’s home. They were all so relaxed (and super organised) we got some really lovely shots using the beautiful natural light.
We then headed over to the barn around midday where Sam spent some time sipping prosecco with the bridesmaids and her mum. Sam waited until the last minute to put her gown on – such a great way to ensure that you don’t get any of those unwanted creases appearing. Steve and the groomsmen looked super dapper and did a great job of making sure every one was in the right places in time for Sam to make her way down the isle.
We did a reveal shot of Sam in her dress to the wedding party (minus the groom of course) I don’t think there was a dry eye in the room, me included!
Sam and Steve’s wedding party went down the isle in pairs, ahead of Sam and her dad Phil. The ceremony was beautiful and the sense of love and happiness from both Sam and Steve was overwhelming. I think the shots really capture this.
During the drinks reception we managed a mini couples shoot after the more formal family photos and some really great confetti shots. For any couples contemplating whether to have confetti or not – Do! It’s so much fun and it creates opportunities for some great natural shots of your guests.
The reception started with the speeches, which I have to say were fantastic and very heart felt. Following the speeches everyone tucked into a very yummy BBQ and a selection of homemade desserts.
We were so very lucky to have a fantastic sunset and we really made the most of it with another twenty minute couple shoot. These are some of my favourite shots.
We even got published in the AW18 edition of A Suffolk Ceremony which is just fantastic! Thank you again, Sam and Steve. You guys really rocked it and I had a really wonderful day too!
