Anna & Kieran
Anna and Kieran were a dream couple to photograph.From the outset they were there to have a laugh with their friends and family and just let the day unfold before them. In a little village called Gastard, nestled in the Wiltshire countryside, a brilliant day was had by all.
Anna and Kieran weren't used to having their photographs taken and didn't want anything too staged or showy, so that's why they got us on board for their wedding photography. However, they soon got into it and we ended up having a great time capturing a stream of fun shots throughout the day.
The wedding itself took place in the grand Georgian Wessex Room in Chippenham Registry Office, which overlooked a quaint little courtyard outside; perfect for the group shots. Everyone had such a great time and this was before the bar had even opened!
After the ceremony and group shots, we had a quick drive around the corner to an old churchyard to take some photographs of the happy couple together. They loved this spot and chose it because Anna's sister had also had her wedding photos taken there.
In the summer sun, the dappled light gently shone through the trees, creating the perfect soft lighting environment for some wedding portraits. We had a great time there capturing a range of shots but were soon keen to get the couple back to the party.
Anna and Kieran loved the traditional wedding portraits but were having far too much fun to pose for long - after about half an hour we were done and ready to get back to their friends and family to continue the party.
The reception was held in a huge marquee in Anna's dad's garden overlooking the Wiltshire countryside and it was a fantastic setting. Hay bails and local barrels of beer set the scene for what would be a brilliant afternoon.
There was something so personal about this wedding. Every detail meant something special to Anna and Kieran, from the homemade cake to the decorations, to the heartwarming speeches, every element had been planned to perfection.
It was a real pleasure photographing this wedding from beginning to end and we wish Anna and Kieran a very happy future together
