Everdon Northamptonshire Weddings - Alexandra and Merrik

Northamptonshire Weddings
Well Hello Folks,

I don’t photograph too many Northamptonshire Weddings!  Today’s blog is all about our Niece.  As a family we were all chuffed to bits when Alexandra got engaged to Merrik so there was much excitement when the wedding planning started in earnest.

I had the absolute honour to be asked to photograph their wedding and this was special.  Alexandra was our Niece but she was also my bridesmaid at our wedding (ahem a few years before!!) and to play a role in her day was something that really touched my heart.

Alexandra’s family home is in a beautiful little village in Northamptonshire so the day was going to take place in the family church, which is a stone’s throw from the house.  The wedding reception was in a beautiful marquee which was a few minutes’ walk from the church. Alexandra’a parents had arranged a surprise donkey and cart to take her to the church and it was so lovely to see the neighbours line the street to watch her make her way to be married as most of them have watched Alexandra grow up and blossom.

As with all things typically British the weather played its part; rain, sun, rain but then sunny and dry. It was a shame as the field was a little wet but this did not mar anyone having a great time on the day. It was a little weird trying to be a guest and a photographer and to be honest I was more photographer than guest but the lovely thing was I saw everything, which is such an honour at any wedding but especially at this one 🙂  The food was amazing and I loved sitting down and having a relaxing time chatting to the family.  I also loved photographing Northamptonshire Weddings and would do more like a shot 🙂

Have a great week folks and enjoy the sun; it’s so lovely to be having a summer at last.

Claire 🙂
