Love and marriage, Love and marriage, go together like a horse and carriage. Wise words. This song makes me smile so just imagine the smile on my face when I got to photograph all three for Pamela and Russ’ wedding day back in April.
We have actually known each other for about ten years as we were neighbours for a short while (and in fact we moved into their old house when they moved from Ledbury to pastures new) and although they have since moved several times and had their gorgeous daughter together in this time, we have stayed in touch. Imagine my excitement when I received the email telling me off for moving to Perthshire as they had now set a date and needed a photographer for their big day! I was more than happy to travel south again to be a part of their wedding.
They had chosen an intimate day with a small number of loved ones to join their celebration and it really was quite special. As wildlife and nature lovers with their hearts in the countryside this couple had opted for spring greens with a hint of blue thistle.
With the groom’s tweed jacket and the bride’s lace tea-dress beautifully complimenting each other there really was a sense of knowing this wedding would show Pamela and Russ’ sense of fun, style and totally owning their wedding
One of my aims during weddings is to capture natural moments and the image above was exactly that. Look how they are looking at each other, like there is no-one else around, totally consumed by their love for one another.
With it being April they did have the obligatory April shower (read: downpour) and of course it happened during the five mile horse and carriage ride across to their reception. But the beaming smiles on their faces as they were greeted by their guests you would never have known about the rain.
What I loved about this laid back wedding was how laid back it was – just like the couple. Throwing “the norm” out of the window. This was a day of celebration – love and marriage. I would like to wish Pamela & Russ all the very best for their future together. You are, of course very welcome at any time to visit us in beautiful Perthshire.
