Charlotte & Nigel Wedding Day – Lyde Court Barn, Hereford

Lyde Court Barn WeddingLyde Court Barn was the enchanting setting for the wedding of Charlotte & Nigel in late May.

The day started as usual at the home of the brides parents and Charlotte was amazingly ready when we arrived ages before the ceremony time. Her friends must have known something about her as they had generously thought to buy her a Tommee Tippee beaker so that she wouldn’t spill anything on her dress.

And a beautiful dress it was. It was a sort of early 60’s style with a belled short skirt and it suited her right down to the ground. And she sported the reddest shoes in creation too.

The Ceremony took place in the gorgeous town hall in Hereford on the first floor in a large, grand room with enormous windows.

The drive to Lyde Court Barn was just 10 minutes or so and the weather was sunny all day, with a few fluffy high clouds. and the setting of Lyde Court was stunning, with rolling open fields full of sheep and distant vistas of the Malverns. The Malverns hills were where Charlotte & Nigel had their pre-shoot a month or two earlier.

The barn, which is part of the estate of the Duchy of Cornwall, is a sympathetically restored venue where the owners had carefully maintained the true qualities of a large traditional barn. They haven’t ‘sanitised’ it to the point of it being just a caricature of what a true barn should be. It has retained its rustic appeal. Well done Gary et al!

And we must just mention the pianist. What a lovely gentleman. He played some timeless songs wonderfully. The sort of music that has you humming along and wishing you, too, were as gifted on the ivory keys.

Engagement Shoot – Charlotte & Nigel

Charlotte & Nigel asked for their wedding pre-shoot to be on the hills overlooking the town of Malvern, in Worcestershire, on a beautiful spring evening.

Dutifully, the sun shone brilliantly – and the wind blew like it was heading straight back to the arctic after a spot of sightseeing.

The Malvern Hills are a lovely location and it seemed that much of the surrounding population had decided on an evening stroll.  This is not the easiest of situations, since most couples, indeed most people, have never booked any professional form of photography.  So to be asked to walk or sit or stand in a certain way with strangers milling all around can be very disconcerting.

That said, we had a great time and Charlotte & Nigel quickly relaxed.

Engagement – Charlotte & Dale

Charlotte & Dale live near the Worcestershire and Shropshire border and asked to have a pre-shoot at their favourite Sunday morning walking location. Being mid-week it was almost deserted except for the occassional dog walker and accompanying canine.

It was another glorious sunny day, and we walked across a river and along a wooded path. And we walked. And we walked…

But it was most certainly worth it. Their wedding is mid – August.

More images are available in the Gallery – login details are available from Charlotte and Dale

(Did I mention we walked a long, long way?)
