In Part 1 you saw how Paula & Richard got married at the Taunton Registry Office on a Friday beginning of May. This blog post is about their Saturday celebrations at beautiful Huntstile Organic Farm. I went over in the late morning to see Paula and her family getting ready. Huntstile has quite a few rooms so everyone can get ready in a different corner. Of course it took the boys less than ten minutes to be suited and booted.
I joined Richard and the guests on the tractor pulled hanger on their way up to the stone circle. Paula followed in the owner’s four by four. The outdoor ceremony was emotional, witnessed by lots of friends & family, and most importantly it was officiated by two of their closest friends. While most of the guests chose to take the tractor back down the hill, a few guests walked with Richard, Paula and I.
Back at the farm, the drinks reception was soon followed by the wedding breakfast and three of the funniest, most eloquent and touching speeches I have ever heard. Actually the best man’s speech was a video recorded speech as he had been travelling the world at the time of the wedding. A video camera pointed at the wedding guests recorded their response to the speech which was sent back to the best man.
I finished the day with documenting the first dance, some pretty amazing live Argentine Tango (the bride’s aunt!) and some romantic outdoor shots of Paula & Richard.
