During the summer of last year (as I’m writing this on New Years Day 2016), the Northamptonshire Wedding Photography of Nicola & Alex took me to the historic village of Helmdon, which is where Nicola’s parents live and where their special day was going to take place.
Nicola was getting ready with her bridesmaids and the setting could not have been better. For literally at the end of their garden, the large marquee had been erected which would be the setting for their wedding breakfast and evening reception. Nicola’s parents live in a beautiful converted barn, which is just a two minute walk across the road to the historic parish church of St Mary Magdalene. So everything was very close together, which made a lovely change from the usual fraught journeys that are often made between ceremony and venue.
With the invited guests all seated in the church, Nicola, who looked absolutely stunning, was escorted by her very proud father on the short walk to the church. The ceremony was beautiful and following the legal proceeding of signing the register, Nicola & Alex led the way to the marquee for their drinks reception and nibbles.
Following the wedding breakfast and with the speeches all done, guests were free to sit outside enjoying the lovely summer evening weather. There were even a few games of cricket being played.
Following the cutting of the cake, Nicola & Alex took to the dance floor for their first dance. There was a lovely surprise for her, as one of her brothers was playing in the band and it was a lovely moment when she spotted him getting ready. Incidentally, her other brother Rob, is an award winning photojournalist (no pressure on me then) and I urge you to check out his fabulous work.
This wedding has to be one of my favourites of my 2015 season! Nicola and Alex were an absolute joy to work with and the day was just perfect.
Below are some of the images from the day and I hope you enjoy looking through them:
