It was during the recent spell of very warm weather that I photographed Lucy & Will’s gorgeous wedding. Lucy was getting ready at her Mum’s house in Greens Norton, and by mid morning the temperatures were approaching 28 degrees, so I knew we were in for a hot one.
I spent the first hour of so with Lucy and her family, as she and her bridesmaids got ready. I wanted to make sure that I had enough time to get to the local pub for some shots of Will and his groomsmen, but leaving enough time to get back for when the dress on. The boys were all in good spirits and there was lots of great banter. They were clearly excited about the day ahead.
Back at the house the wedding car had arrived as Lucy was making her final preparations, and she looked amazing. It was then a very short drive to St Bartholomew’s church which was just a stones throw away for the ceremony. The church was packed to capacity and the service was just lovely. One of the readings was especially beautiful and Lucy struggled to hold back her emotions.
Lucy & Will are local Northamptonshire farmers and Will does admit to being rather fond of a good tractor. So on leaving the church Lucy was greeted with her surprise mode of transport to the reception. You can see her reaction when she saw it in one of the photographs below. (It was also quite amusing watching her climb up into the cab in her wedding dress)!
The reception was being held nearby on land adjoining the equestrian yard owned by Lucy’s father. You see Lucy loves her horses, Will loves his tractors.
With such nice weather, it was perfect for their guests to be able to enjoy drinks outside of the huge marquee that was to be the venue for the wedding breakfast and evening celebrations.
The speeches were very amusing and the day was fantastic from start to finish. It was a real privilege to have been able to document the day for Lucy & Will, and I wish them every happiness in the future.
Below are some of my favourites from the day:
