Georgie & Gary – Outdoor Wedding
Georgie & Gary carefully crafted a home and Outdoor Wedding at Georgie’s parents newly built home in the Cotswolds. I met the couple and we talked around the amazing plans and landscaping that would be undertaken to make this new property special and a unique wedding day experience. The house itself was modern contemporary style with large open south facing windows letting in lots of natural daylight to make light and airy photos. All of Georgie’s getting ready/ pre-ceremony photographs were captured inside the newly decorated home. The boys were dressed in tweeds with shooting accessories. The best girls dresses were powder blue. And Georgie worn a gorgeous boho vintage heavily embroidered bodice dress.
The grounds were a gorgeous open space with a huge marquee and outdoor seating, just perfect for an Outdoor Wedding. It really did feel like a wedding at home with ‘Coco’ the cocker spaniel and ‘Charlie’ the German Shepherd podding around, in and out and amongst the guests. The weather was hot, just amazing sunny and balmy with guests chilling outside in this tiny Cotswold village with the sun slowly setting in the early evening. And a June wedding day meaning the light did not fall until after 10pm.
Coco the spaniel was a special part of the day. Coco lives with Georgie and Gary. He carried the rings for their wedding vows and ran down the aisle perfectly and at the right moment. The rings were safely secured around his collar. He also featured in the couples personal together photographs, accompanied them on the bouncy castle and also their first dance together. The wedding photography style was easily documentary photography- centric with so many guests and many events through the day, with just a handful of family informal group photos.
We walked down to a small forest gathering at the bottom of the garden to capture some tender moments together, including Coco of course. Later in the day after the wedding breakfast we walked out into the next door crop fields for some lovely falling sun and open spaced photographs. The ceremony itself was held outside alongside the house and over looking crop fields under a flower arch. Guests then could take celebration drinks from the ‘Bar bucks’ van or bar inside the marquee and just mingle.
