So…remember a few months ago when I ran this competition for someone to win their wedding photography free? And then I decided to give the prize both to the winner and the couple who came in second place? Well, that lovely couple who came second was Sarah and Carl, and all I can say is: Best. Decision. Ever. to shoot their wedding, because it was so exactly the kind of wedding I love! Huge tent on the village green? Check. Family and friends helping to put everything together, from the bunting to the table decor? Check. A house full of people who were just excited to be there and share the day with Sarah and Carl? Check. Bride and Groom totally in love, going from tears to smiles in a split second the whole day long? Check. Couple willing to climb over fences to get into the field I wanted to shoot in? Double check.
Add to this a turquoise wedding dress, a fantastic humanist ceremony, peacock feathers everywhere, amazing food, desserts that everyone pitched in to bring, heartfelt speeches and a BARNDANCE, and you might begin to get an idea of how awesome this wedding was.
The four groomspeople (three men and one lady) were the Fantastic Four!
And the Ushers were…well, you see. I laughed SO hard when I saw this!
Another Fantastic Groomsman:
Sometimes you just have to check if your Dad is hiding something in his mouth.
Prettiest rings ever, possibly. Sarah’s engagement ring’s stone is tormaline!
