Working in weddings means I get to meet so many amazing people, and often I will see familiar faces which I just adore. Liz is an incredible wedding hair stylist, and when she asked me if I was free to do her wedding 18 months ago I was just honestly blown away. I felt so humbled as I know she has worked and met numerous wedding photographers, so to choose me just meant everything.
As the day drew closer, the weather was not looking peachy. After a night of relentless rain which continued in the morning, I set off to Crockwell Farm for my last wedding of 2019. Roads were closed due to the flooding, on my cross country journey I had to turn around several times with roads impassable from the rain- I even had to stop horse riders to ask for help on the best way to the venue! My relief when I arrived was immense! And even more so when I saw Liz and her sisters getting ready and just in the best spirits! I went upstairs, and Liz had beautifully set everything out for me to photograph- my eyes went wide and my mouth dropped open. You could tell Liz had been to a lot of weddings!
Liz just made me smile the entire day. This was so her day, and she lived and loved every moment of it. She looked just amazing, and with Oli by her side I don't think there could possibly have been any more happiness to have. Their darling girl Mollie was close to stealing the day with her enormous blue eyes and gorgeous little face, twirling her dress and loving how she looked and felt. Their little boy walked the entire way down the aisle which nearly had me in tears, him and Mollie holding hands and teetering their way to the end!
The rain eased right off after the ceremony, so Liz and Oli were ready to embrace everything their day had to offer so we all went outside for some photos. It was COLD, but everyone was brilliant and kept on smiling. Liz's sisters had their biggest smiles on, and we all went squelching off in the mud and drizzle to get some amazing shots, I cant thank them enough for all of their brilliance! Sam was also doing some filming of the day, and she was wonderful to work alongside with.
Liz and Oli were so patient and willing to walk all around the farm in the little daylight we had left, and then the party started. The dancing, the music, the food, it was just such an incredible energy to be a part of.
There's a lot of colour and light in these photos, which I think is a true reflection of Oli and Liz. They are just ❤︎
Liz, Oli, thank you for asking me to be there with you, and thank you for being such an amazing pair of souls, you have made my final wedding one to remember!!
