The other Saturday I found myself heading to Wick Bottom Barn near Marlborough for a wedding. It’s a little way out of my ‘normal’ area but as Mrs Lord is from the area its my home from home. We met there 11 years ago now when I was working at a photographic studio in Savernake Forest & Becky was a picture framer. I worked with a great team there & one of the team I trained was Nicola. We stayed in touch over the years, mainly thanks to Facebook & Instagram & have seen her family grow with her boyfriend Jono & their gorgeous girls Willow & Lottie. I was really thrilled when Nic & Jono got in touch & asked me to photograph their wedding.
They did the legal part of getting married on the Thursday in Marlborough & the day on Saturday included a humanist ceremony in front of their friends & family.
Kiti & I both started at the barn & we captured some images of Jono finishing off getting ready & with his Best Man & Ushers before welcoming the guests.
As their friends & families waited with an expectant groom, Nicola arrived in convoy with Willow, Lottie & the rest of the Bridal party.
They gathered themselves together & made their way into the barn, with Nicola being given away by her very proud brother.
It was a lovely service conducted by Jono’s step-brother John & Nicola & Jono made their way out to the congratulations of their loved ones.
They had a really relaxed day & they mingled with their guests whilst drinking fabulous cocktails mixed by The Rovin’ Bar.
Their younger guests (& some of the older guests!) had great fun on the bouncy castle & huge slide.
We took Nic & Jono off into the countryside to do some shots of the two of them before coming back to get the girls to do some shots of the four of them.
I love the shots of the girls looking back over Mum & Dad’s shoulders.
Before too long we brought Nicola & Jono back to their guests for the informal wedding breakfast in the barn.
The guests were sat banquet-style at long trestle tables as they enjoyed delicious hog roast & slow roast brisket.
After the gorgeous meal it was time for some great speeches with lots of laughter & tears.
Nicola & Jono were surrounded by their friends & families as they enjoyed their first dance before everyone joined them for a dance or two!
