They later celebrated their reception just a few miles away at Wellington Barn in Calstone, near Calne. Wellington Barn is one of our favourite venues, as it is completely in the middle of nowhere - just an ideal place for couples to relax with their guests, surrounded by beautiful hills and the rolling Wiltshire countryside.
It was an absolute pleasure to photograph their wedding day, Lauren and Chris are such a lovely couple and their families and friends made it even more special for us to enjoy the day just as if we were old friends.
We haven't featured any of the weddings we have photographed in detail before, but thought it would be a good idea to show you a little more of the way we photograph a wedding day. For us beautiful wedding photography means that when you look back at your pictures they bring a smile to your face as it brings back memories of the day and really tells the story of your wedding day, rather than being a series of uncomfortable and stiff poses that your parents did 30 years ago!
Of course everyone wants a selection of formal group photos, but the real emphasis is on relaxed and natural photos that allow the bride and groom to enjoy their wedding day with each other and with their guests... not to just be on a constant photoshoot!
After the big day we email the bride and groom a photo within 48 hours and then the rest are edited and sent in the highest quality on a disc within 2-3 weeks, together with the full printing rights, to print as many photos as often and as big as they like!
Lauren and Chris had around 1200 photos on their discs to help treasure their special day, as well as a folder of around 100 edited favourites - these are the shots that we pick out as being the best poses, details or moments from the day and put them into a black and white, vintage, or suitable style to match the couples personalities.
Here are a selection of the favourites. We hope you enjoy them!
