Vic & Dan’s Elmore Court Wedding
On an unexpectedly cold and windy (but thankfully sunny!) day in September, Vic & Dan’s Elmore Court wedding was a very spectacular occasion. Firstly, Elmore Court has to be one of my favourite wedding venues in the South West. I just love the history of it! Secondly, these two were so lovely and so amazing to photograph.
It’s great having the bride getting ready, the ceremony and the wedding reception all in one place as it makes the whole wedding day much more relaxed. In the morning, I flitted between Vic & Dan getting ready and Vic’s sister who is also a florist, setting up the ceremony room. It’s great to see the wedding decorations and everything coming together!
The ceremony was really emotional and set to the beautiful music of a string quartet. Lots of the guests were bought to tears, as well as the lovely bride and groom! However, after the formalities, everyone headed out on to the lawns to relax and have fun. Vic and Dan weren’t keen to have too many formal photos, so I concentrated on the documentary, candid style photography to capture all the wonderful natural and fun moments throughout the day!
I did take the bride and groom off for a few minutes for their wedding photos though. Again, nothing too formal but I just focussed on documenting their relationship in a really genuine way. Not that it was hard, these two stunners absolutely rocked it! The wonderful grounds at Elmore Court are amazing to photograph as well.
One of my favourite moments was Vic seeing the wedding breakfast room set up for the first time. Her family had kept it as a secret, so all the table decorations were a complete surprise. It looked amazing! Once everyone had sat down for the wedding breakfast, the rest of the day was wonderfully fun and informal. There were even marshmallows to makes s’mores around the fire pit in the evening! I couldn’t help but ask the bride and groom if they’d be happy to head back outside again for some more wedding photos in that gorgeous evening light. Every photographer loves golden hour! I then headed off just as everyone started pulling some shapes on the dance floor to the lively band – not before grabbing the last few photos of all the fun.
What a wonderful, wonderful day, and it was such a pleasure to be there.
