A week before Christmas 2017 I received an email seeing if I was available to photography a very small intimate wedding in just 5 weeks! What better was to start the year than a few hours, with happy people, with warm cosy fires.
I met with Elaine and Matthew at their venue Cowley Manor near Cheltenham just after Christmas and I immediately warmed to Elaine’s infectious laugh, expressions and Northern Irish accent! I could see how Matthew looked at her when she spoke and it was endearing. Whilst chatting to them both I found out they they had been together for 15 years but planning a wedding in 5 weeks.
Old fashioned family values was the ‘theme’ to their wedding, if you can even call it a theme. Two people declaring their love together in front of their nearest and dearest followed by a dinner in a private room around one big table.
I thoroughly enjoyed chatting to both of their families during the relaxed few hours I spent with them and left for home with a cosy feeling.
I wish you both the very best congratulations and love in the world.
