I met Henry and Amy quite a little while back now, I was delighted when they booked us for their Leicestershire wedding, their wedding date was set for the same date as our wedding anniversary and I warmed to them both immediately, so I was so happy to capturing their wedding day for them on a special day for us too.
The morning started with me arriving at Amy’s parents house, it was full of activity around the dining table with hair styling, make up, tearful mum and Amy and her bridesmaids. Amy’s brother had been put to work that morning knocking signs into the ground to guide guests from the church through the village and along the long lane to Henry’s parents farm. The state of his wet splattered muddy clothing was an indication of what the weather was doing, but ‘hey, there’s time for it to change’ which it did.
Once everyone was ready and we’d capture some family photographs at home I headed off to church. It felt like the village was full with onlookers and spilling with excited guests all for the Hornbuckle wedding. After a beautiful ceremony and happy congratulations, Henry drove his wife in style back to the farm for the celebrations, OK so it took a little while for the engine to warm as we all cheered on!
Amy, Henry and their families had been hard at work, the garden looked beautifully cared for with ample cover from the wind an occasional rain drops, the huge marquee presented itself magnificently and was just simply amazing inside. We captured the group shots and had a little walk around the farm grounds with Amy and Henry, then they headed inside for the wedding breakfast and speeches. Henry’s brother provided a brilliant speech, and I don’t think it had too much of a helping hand from Google.
Whilst the wedding guests relaxed over dinner we were treated to homemade lasagna around the farmhouse kitchen table, a touching and welcome gesture. I then enjoyed watching and capturing shots of the video diary, ha ha these made me chuckle, a mix of heart warming and fun takes.
To end my evening I captured the first dance, which was like and probably will be like no other. As Amy and Henry took their places, the partition of the marquee between the dance floor and the reception room lifted, the smoke machine engulfed the dance floor and the music started, guests cheered and the first dance started. It was a wonderful moment and to my amazement their first dance song was the same that was played them twelve years to that day for our wedding dance. (Thank you Ronan!). After I’d captured the first dance with an emotional tear filling my viewfinder, Amy and her dad danced for what was another wonderful moment. Ahhh and after that I left them to really party whilst I left with a big smile. It had been another amazing wedding on 2nd June.
Amy and Henry, I’m so glad we met and happy that we shall now share this day as our wedding anniversaries. We wish you and your families great happiness and I just know you’re going to have so many laughs together. Becky & Neil xx
