Last Saturday I headed down to the picturesque village of Steeple Ashton, for Gemma and Richard’s wedding. I arrived at Gemma’s parents’ house to find Gemma’s Dad hard at work in the garden and field after the wet weather the day before had left the field a bit of a mud bath! Some quick thinking to organise metal matting for the vehicles had saved the day!

Gemma and her bridesmaids were having a great time getting ready upstairs and had some beautiful fresh flowers for their hair. After spending some time with them, I went to meet Rich and his best man and ushers at the pub at the road for a few shots.

Steeple Ashton is a traditional little village with lovely timbered buildings and a proper village green, so we took some shots en route to the church using the gorgeous backgrounds.

The church was decked out in white lillies and orange jerberas which looked fantastic and we were lucky that the heavy rain didn’t start until after we had managed to take a few shots outside the church after the ceremony.

Gemma and Richard headed off in their horse and carriage and we took a few shots on the village green, but by this time the rain had got very heavy, so we retreated inside the marquee, where guests got stuck into their champagne and canapes.

Here are a few of my favourite shots:
