Welcome to Sunday Morning Folks,

Recently I photographed a beautiful wedding at Gate Street Barn Bramley Surrey. Gate Street Barn is where the BT advert was filmed! Today’s blog will be featuring fun, frolics aka Yan’s pants, a little detail and finishing with the moon, definitely not Yan’s pants!!

The day started at Keeper’s cottage; it was a short walk from the barn and I must say it really was a home from home and perfect for the bridal preparations. Kate and Jack spent their first night as a married couple there too. We then wandered back to the barn and the guests were starting to arrive in readiness for the big event. I just loved the kilts and a very fitting homage to Burns night.

We were extremely lucky with the weather, it did not rain and the light was exceptional for this time of year; the only sadness was the snow had disappeared, but hey ho! Kate and Jack had organised hearty pies as part of their wedding breakfast and we had lots of fun when the piemasters performed their duties. At this juncture I must say a big thank you to Carole and Tandem Catering; her team produced the most wonderful meal; Kate and Jack had very kindly arranged for us to enjoy the food too and wow it was delicious. Carole, your chocolate brownies are to die for 🙂

So today’s imagery is focusing on the fun and frolics! So the first image is dedicated to Yan’s pants; it speaks for itself! Image two is a documentary shot captured as we were setting up for a formal and Kate looks so relaxed here in her warm boots. The third image is something I always love to capture and for me summed up the love and support they had for each other; but the image widens further in that the essences of the kilt, the dress and the flowers are all captured here. Lastly and by no means least the moon; just prior the the wedding breakfast the moon was out and shining brightly so we created our own little bit of snow, et voila. I loved this sequence of shots as they oozed romance and to choose an image was incredibly hard. I finally decided on this one because Jack is so proud to be holding his new wife in his arms.

So that’s it for today and really looking forward to catching up with you all next week.

Claire 🙂
