Caroline and Tom were made for each other. They have infectious smiles. Tom has an infectious laugh too. This was a very memorable wedding. From the glorious blue skies. The fantastic 1931 Lagonda. The historic 11th century Norman church. The amazing Wiltshire countryside. Wellington Barn in Calstone. And the most perfect sunset.
Throw in an unexpected visitor to the ceremony. Then a combine harvester or two. What you have are all the ingredients for a day not to be forgotten quickly.
Although Caroline and Tom have been together for 11 years, we only knew about 6 weeks ago that we were going to shoot their wedding day.
We’d met them back in August in Bath for their pre-wedding shoot and instantly knew we were going to enjoy their wedding.
We weren’t disappointed.
Caroline arrived at her mums house, just a mile or two from the church with her hair and makeup completed, but still to change into her dress – a stunning and understated creation which she duly modified whilst coming down the stairs.
Once at the church, Caroline, Tom, the Vicar and all the guests were treated to something extraordinary. A bat flew into the ceremony. Now, bats aren’t normally interested in weddings. At least in my experience. This one was the exception to the rule. Although he must have had another appointment, since he left just before the first kiss…
From the church, A 1931 Lagonda driven by Tim took the couple to Wellington Barn and the rolling open countryside of Wiltshire.
Towards the end of the wedding breakfast, we managed to get Caroline and Tom away from the guests. It was the last 20 minutes before sunset.
How we wish we had shots like that from our wedding day…
