Now here's a wedding that was all about having a dam good time and keeping it totally chilled out!! An awesome couple surrounded by amazing family and friends. Couples like this make my job a real pleasure and the reason why I love being a wedding photographer! Matt & Lou's big day had it all! Sunshine and rain! Fun and games! Vintage style details and cool quirky D.I.Y. retro-chic-ness!
The day started at Matt & Lou's home with all the hustle and bustle you'd expect from a wedding morning. Their ceremony took place at St Matthias & St George Church in Astwood Bank, Redditch. This was my first time at this church. A truly beautiful church. The weather was a little hit 'n' miss for late August. Sunny blue skies would, without warning, turn to unseasonal chilly downpours! They hired Bentley Village Hall in Upper Bentley for their reception. They'd organised lots to entertain their guests. A kids playground on-site was used to host an old fashioned Hook-a-Duck and Coconut Shy.
Lou's 5 bridesmaids were amazing! All making sure her day went perfectly to plan. Their matching outfits were absolutely gorgeous!
After their wedding breakfast we took a wander round the hall for some fun photos. I couldn't resist making use of the swings and fields nearby! A live band afterwards packed the dance-floor carrying on the unique cool vibe of their wedding day into the evening celebrations, everyone was having a great time!
Below are the messages I received following their wedding.
"Just got back from our "minimoon". Thank you so much for last week, you were amazing and we thoroughly enjoyed our day! Can't wait for the photos, bet they're amazing! You were like a ninja hehe."
"I'm literally looking through them now for the second time. It arrived yesterday and I can't begin to tell you how much we love them! You did an outstanding job!! So many natural and funny shots but also beautiful ones to treasure forever. Thank you so much! Not only are the photos better than we could imagine, you were also wonderful on the day & we loved having you there to capture it all for us."
"Thank you again - I can't stop looking at them and smiling :-) Love Lou and Matt xx"
