A Sunny Summer Suffolk Wedding in Wenhaston
A wonderful early Summer sunny Suffolk Wedding in Wenhaston (try saying that more than a few times coherently!) was the order of the day for Lucy and Tom! And what a day it was!
I started off with Lucy and her closest friends and family for the bridal preparations. Everyone was in high spirits and there was a real buzz of energy. A short walk down the road, I was able to capture some photos of the guys as well before they took the very short walk to church. The rain threatened but it passed as quickly as it came and by the time the ceremony came around, it was baking sunshine! But the church provided some respite from the sun just as the bell ringers got going – the light in the church was unbelievable and Lucy looked stunning as she made her way, beaming smiles at her soon to be husband, Tom.
The service was fantastic, the vicar was great fun and there were some really lovely readings too! Both beaming smiles as they walked back down the aisle Lucy and Tom hopped aboard a tractor and made their way to the farm and gardens where their celebrations really got going! It was not long before Tom and Lucy had their first dance – not in keeping with tradition perhaps but it really got the whole party started, taking the fun and energy up to 11 and it stayed that way throughout the whole day. I don’t think I stopped for breath, there was so much going on but it didn’t feel anywhere near like hard work, I was having so much fun photographing and documenting it all.
Rob was THE BEST photographer we could have wished for. On the day he put us at ease, made us laugh and fitted into our wedding party like he was a friend we would have invited. The photos he gave us were perfect. We adore each and every one of them. He really captured the love and laughter from the day and we’ll treasure them forever.
The little details and the effort the whole family had put in to decorating the venue was amazing and although the sun was harsh we worked with the light and made the most of the colourful surroundings!
After some outdoor speeches, it was time for the wedding breakfast, where more speeches, fun and games ensued, with an absolutely hilarious game of Mr and Mrs!
Later, there was line dancing and then Lucy’s dad got on the decks to play some Northern Soul classics, taking the party through into the early morning. But in spite of all the dancing, the heat and the drinking, some people still found time to go a little mad on the bouncy castle. I hopped in there and tried to take a few pics too. I think I fractured my nose as the flash gun hit me in the face but whatever – I was having too much of a good time to care. If I hadn’t had another wedding the next day – I would probably have downed cameras and stayed on that bouncy castle for the night!
Thanks Lucy and Tom, you are a truly wonderful, wonderful couple and your day was absolutely the most amazing day in the best of company, I would not have wanted to be anywhere else – I hope you enjoy your images for many years to come!
