My third shoot of the Jubilee Weekend saw me providing the Wedding Photography at Ufton Court for Rosie & Phil. After being recommended by a good friend of mine, Rosie and Phil got in touch with me last year and I was delighted to be available for their day. We met up a few weeks back for their Engagement Photography in Bracknell Forest, which was a great chance to get to know each other (whilst hiding from the rain). As with most of my weddings this year, the weather wasn’t looking as though it was going to do us any favours but everyone was in high spirits, looking fabulous and getting ready for a fantastic day when I arrived to cover the bridal prep.
A short drive round the corner and we were at St Marys Church in Thatcham for the ceremony. It was a lovely, really personal service, complete with stuffed dinosaurs that like to shop. At the end of the ceremony the heavens really did open so we stayed inside to get the group shots done in the dry before Phil, being the gentleman (and new husband) he is, carried Rosie to their car so her dress didn’t get ruined!
The reception took place at the lovely Tithe Barn at Ufton Court. It’s a really beautiful barn and is set within its own walled garden in the picturesque grounds of Ufton Court. By now the weather had improved a reasonable amount which meant people could take advantage of the garden and mingle outside. There were lots of little details and everything tied in really nicely. I think one of the things I liked the most was that for dessert, the cakes were all made and supplied by guests (I initially turned down offers of cakes, but the cake balls just looked too good so I caved and had one and I am glad I did! They were delicious!!). I thought it was a really lovely idea and certainly added that extra touch of personalisation to the whole day by getting the guests involved in that way.
Here, as always, is a selection of some of my favourite images from the day. It was incredibly hard to narrow down the ones to show so there are quite a few. For guests of the day, you can find a full gallery on my Client Gallery pages, you can get the password from Rosie and Phil.
