Simon and Shellie’s Spring Wedding (Part 2 – the details)

It takes nerves of steel to plan a mostly outdoor spring wedding in the English countryside but Simon and Shellie did just that when they chose a beautiful rural location in Gloucestershire for their ceremony and celebrations. The weather had not been behaving itself in the week preceding the wedding so Shellie had her (crystal embellished) wellies ready well in advance as did so many of the guests!  From wedding wear accessorised with wellies, to sitting on straw bales sipping tea from vintage china, the day was full of many special touches.  For Simon and Shellie, exchanging their vows (almost in the open air) with a stunning backdrop of huge trees that had just come into leaf, was a truly unique start to their marriage.  As the sun went down, the glow of candles and 10,000 fairy lights looked truly magical.

Shellie and Simon’s Spring Wedding (Part 1)

It was a treat to find myself photographing in the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside recently at Shellie and Simon’s spring wedding. Their wedding took place in a barn and hay bales served as both seating, tables and moveable walls as the day unfolded. Shellie had clearly worked her magic and had transformed the working barn into a beautiful and quirky and uniquely English venue to celebrate the start of married life. The guests both local and international had come suitably prepared for the very changeable weather and wellies and warm jackets were the order of the day. The ceremony was performed in front of family and friends by the couple’s good friend Diana who had flown in from Madrid to be with them. The speeches produced much laughter and a few tears. As the evening continued, guests kept warm quite suitably with barn dancing or by the by the bonfire overlooking the beautiful Gloucestershire countryside. Wonderful music and so many personal touches (including the ice-cream van that got stuck in the mud needing rescuing by the wedding parties finest muscle!) made this very personal wedding a day to remember.  These are some of my favourites from the day – I hope you enjoy...
