Ali and Luke chose a sunny day end of August to get married at the beautiful Kingscote Barn near Tetbury. Kingscote Barn is one of those venues that has and offers it all: you can get ready close by, have both the ceremony and reception in the same place, the food is great, the service fast and the place is set in the most photogenic countryside.
I joined Ali early in the morning while she was getting ready in a cottage just a few minutes down the road. Ali is very organised so everything was in place and on time which is great! After she was done I went to see Luke and the boys. Poor Luke was so nervous but was soon distracted by his surprise back from the future car.
The ceremony was emotional – I love that moment when the bride steps into the room, the groom turns around and BAM that’s the moment they have both been waiting for for a very long time and nothing else counts but the moment.
Ali suggested to me to drive up to the field with the hay bales for some of the portraits which turned out to be an excellent idea as the sky was dark with rain clouds rolling in but the sun was still shining onto the two of them. The drinks reception as followed by a three course meal, speeches that were again very emotion (’emotional avalanches’), great dancing and some amazing outdoor shots in the dark.
Ali & Luke – thanks for making me feel so welcome and especially thanks for letting me be part of your journey! xxx
