When Georgie contacted me nearly 2 years ago, saying she wanted an Alternative Wedding Photographer, I knew we were match made in heaven. She saw my style before I was even sure what my style was! As the day came closer and we met up at the stunning Lyde Court in Herefordshire, I got ridiculously excited about shooting hers and Andy’s wedding.
Lyde Court have managed to clean the barn up JUST ENOUGH to smarten it for weddings but have very cleverly kept it rustic and un tampered enough to preserve all its charm. It is a delightful place and I can highly recommend it.
The day started in a flurry of activity in both camps. The girls twittered and frittered whilst the boys were cool, calm and collected! I could feel some nerves in the air. The second Georgie arrived at Andy’s side the nervous atmosphere broke and Georgie’s infectious bubbly personality took over!
Georgie and Andy were high school sweethearts and they are so easy to be around as a couple. Their friends are very very important to them and had just as much importance on this day as their family. They were definitely surrounded with love.
Have you ever seen a Rodeo Sheep? As Shepherd was a maiden name in Georgie’s mum’s family, a SHEEP was ordered. As you can imagine this caused hilarity and i got some corkers of pics of various guests, young and old trying to beat the clock and stay on the sheep.
In the evening, Wish Upon a Sparkle arrived sprinkling fairy dust and glitter and a festival atmosphere becoming apparent with the dance floor filling with House music and a rave began!
I would like to thank Georgie and Andy and all of their friends and family for making me feel so very welcome. I wish you all the best luck in the world!!
