Classic Country Wedding ~ Emily & Tom

In March of this year, I myself got married. It was at my parents’ place in Gloucester. There was a marquee, a live band, a bunch of handmade details…I couldn’t help but think how much I would enjoy photographing it. I’ve wanted to shoot a wedding in Gloucester (my hometown) ever since I started. It was just a few weeks afterwards that Emily emailed me, and started telling me about her wedding.

At her parents’ farm in Gloucester.
With a marquee.
And a live band.
And a squillion homemade details.
And would I like to photograph it?

It’s funny how things work out sometimes.

I usually try to keep my blog posts as concise as possible, but with this wedding there was no chance of that. There was not an inch of the farm that had been left undecorated, not a blade of grass not perfectly cut by Emily’s Dad Murray. From the moment I took the first photograph at their mini-rehearsal on Friday to wandering down the paddock on Saturday night, I could feel that incredible sense of community and hospitality that comes from being in the country.

Suffice to say that it was a very special experience to photograph this wedding, to share with such genuine company, in the place that I grew up.

Emily & Tom.
