The Photographer: lucky me!
Some might say Jess and Doug had the ‘A Team’…we might say that we did too!
This day was a day of proper ‘hurty cheeks’ from smiling so much!
This was a day of real, genuine celebration of the love between two soul mates.
This was a day that I felt so honoured to be a part of…
This was the day that Jess married her best friend, Doug.
This was a wedding full of special touches. A wedding that illustrates that you don’t have to spend a fortune to make it beautiful. As a pair of young sheep farmers, Jess and Doug’s inspiration came right out of the countryside they love so much. Jess’ bouquet was simple, yet stunning and had a ‘just gathered from a summer field’ feel to it – appropriately tied with wool instead of ribbon.
This day was just so full of fun! Yes, there were plenty of emotional moments but most of all laughter.
Even Rev Becky was in with the sheep theme with her special stole!
Jess was quite possibly one of the happiest brides I have ever had the pleasure of photographing and just about managed to stop skipping long enough to eat something!
And then there were a few quiet moments, long enough to say, ‘We’ve just got married!’…
And after all of the celebrating, delicious food, laughter and dancing were done…the cows were there to say goodbye. A perfect end to a country wedding!
All that’s left for me to say is a HUGE ‘thank you’ to Mr and Mrs Faulkner for the privilege of telling your story with my photographs. What a very special story it is!
