Continuing my run of sharing weddings from last year, this one takes us back to mid-October. Wedding weather is never predictable and as a photographer, I normally plan for the worse and then anything better is a bonus. I don't think that many people at Alex and Paul's wedding would have expected the weather to be quite as good as it was on this gorgeous Sunday in Autumn: warm sun, blue skies - perfect. And given how cold it is outside as I write this, anything that offers a bit of warmth is a good thing. Caswell House and Barn is a beautifully renovated farm with the typical warm Cotswold stone construction for which the area is known. I joined Alex, her bridesmaids, mum and lovely son in the attached guest house which is a great place to prepare for the day ahead. Alex was the picture of calm as the flurry of activity built around her for the day ahead.
The late autumn sun was especially stunning this day and the light during the afternoon was exceptional. It was simply perfect and the ideal time for a walk around the grounds and gardens of Caswell House. Bathed with a warm, golden glow Alex and Paul's portraits are beautiful.
Everyone was suitably impressed by the photographs of Paul that his two Best Men circulated. I've purposely kept the images below at a fairly small size to save any further embarrassment. If any model agencies would like to get in touch with Paul, please contact me and I'll pass your details on.
I've been really looking forward to sharing this wedding. Beautiful people, venue and weather combined to celebrate love, with many incredibly emotional moments which I was honoured to record. Alex & Paul, congratulations again to you both.
