Oh my days. Lost for words, although I know that for many of you that’ll be hard to believe. Behold the wedding of Meg and Neil, a day that included a handfasting, a Firebolt, a pudding table, face painting, a fire pit AND a fly past. They married in Holy Trinity Charwelton, Northamptonshire before throwing the party of their lives in the form of a relaxed festival marquee wedding reception in a field belonging to their friends.
If there were ever a bride to embrace her day, it was Meg. Despite a bright start to the day, we saw two extremes in the weather; torrential rain which left Meg abandoning her plans to travel to church in an open top war-time jeep to blisteringly hot and glorious sunshine… A real lover of the outdoors, she just kicked off her shoes and spent the day barefoot or in her brother’s far-too-large wellies, and stopped worrying about her dress (which incidentally came out of the washing machine gleaming!). She climbed on hay bails, over fences and onto the arms of tractors and didn’t stop beaming all day long.
Meg and Neil’s wedding was all about everything they loved and it was so awesome that they were surrounded by friends and family who were able to make their vision come true; Neil’s mum made their cake, a family friend dressed the marquee inside and out, they pressed their own cider with the help of their friends who own the Eydon Cider Company, Meg’s brother sang for their first dance and their guests signed a snowboard they had painted in blackboard paint.
Their love for each other and their family and friends just flows plentifully throughout these photographs and I loved every second of their day… Their smiles are infectious and my face aches from editing it. This is how you do a wedding… Meg and Neil… What a total privilege.. Please keep in touch!
