As the weather starts to turn, and the evenings really draw in it seemed time to take a trip back to the warmer month of July and some Bonhams Barn wedding photography with the most excellent Ellen and Adam. This is how you do a chilled wedding and it was another top-drawer one working alongside Blank Canvas (and a huge thank you to Lynne for being so good to work with once again).
Adam and I chatted a few months earlier and clicked straight away. This was a local wedding for me, and it wasn’t until the actual wedding day that we realised we had a few shared connections and that several of the guests are from the same village as me. It’s always lovely to work locally amongst areas I know well. And so it was as I began the day at the gorgeous village of Long Sutton just a few miles north of me. Ellen was at her folks’ house with her bridemaids and as soon as we met I knew we were in for the best day. I wasn’t wrong. When a bride and groom pick tacos from Hermanos Taco Truck as their wedding food alongside a brilliant mobile bar from The Dawdling Duck it sets the scene in a very good way.
After a beautifully emotional service we were then off to the wonderful Bonhams Barn – the very opposite of a ‘wedding factory’ – and the rest of the day amongst the best of the Hampshire countryside. Relaxed, chilled, laid-back. Choose any of those. They all fit and they all describe both today and Ellen and Adam. I am incredibly lucky with the couples who book me. Ellen and Adam were no exception to this. It’s another day where what I call a job felt like anything but one.
Thank you both, so so much. You made the day everything you wanted, and it was a genuine honour to be there with you.
