Louise & Dave

Shooting at a new venue is always very exciting and when you have a beautiful bride like Louise getting ready in an idyllic countryside setting like Farbridge, the whole day becomes a pleasure to photograph. After Louise & Dave’s pre-wedding photoshoot in nearby Arundel, I knew there would be lots of laughs between them and you’ll see from the photos below that the laughter didn’t stop – this was a hugely enjoyable wedding for everyone involved!

When I arrived, Dave and his groomsmen were decorating the barn with the lovely individually crafted, handmade touches – Dave (like any proper music lover should) loves vinyl and this was reflected in Louise and Dave’s record-themed table decorations, alongside local meadow flowers and a super cute wedding day patchwork quilt. Over in the bridal suite, I got a chance to sneak a peek at Louise’s gorgeous dress while Louise, her mum, sisters and best friend Kathryn were getting ready. You’ll see from Louise’s dad’s reaction to Louise in the dress how incredible she looked in it.
After the ceremony and the formal group portraits, I could follow my brief of photographing the rest of the day unobtrusively and this was no trouble at all with so many happy people and beautiful backdrops. The rest of the day was a riot of fun and it’d make for a long post to cover everything that happened – so here’s a short version: the bridesmaids and I moved onto the serous business of chasing some sheep, Louise established who was boss with a riding crop during the speeches and Dave danced the Macarena; there was so much dancing, singing and fun, I didn’t leave until the end…

Congratulations Louise & Dave!
