Tammy and Brendan are a down to earth couple, full of love for each other, their son Callum and their beloved Derby County Football Club. Back in September last year, they got married. My day began with bridal preps at Tammy’s parent’s house in Ravenstone, Leicestershire. All the bridesmaids were getting ready here so it was quite a giggle and very relaxed. Tammy wanted her wedding day captured in a more documentary way with a few formal portraits but most of all, she wanted to have fun and laugh a lot and she did!
My second shooter, Steve met with the groom at the church, Brendan isn’t one for being photographed so groom preps were not needed on this occasion.
The ceremony was being held at the Parish church of St Peter’s in Swepstone, Leicestershire. It’s a beautiful village church and somewhere that meant a lot to both Tammy & Brendan. Emotional, funny, a fit of the giggles it all happened during the ‘I do’s’. After the ceremony we off to Tivey’s Farm in Shackerstone for the reception – which was very fitting for the couple as they both love the great outdoors and a country setting so where better than a barn. It was brilliant. It rained pretty much all day (until late afternoon) and Tammy’s wedding dress unfortunately did get covered in mud but it was fine – we were on a muddy farm with rain! Such a great wedding with a lot of love and laughter. The best man’s speech was a corker. We even got to enjoy a singing waiters and an added bonus of a singing groom which got guests dancing off their afternoon tea! We had fun in the grain barn (high heels and grain as well as fits of giggles, don’t mix too well) – and utilised the farm in the best we could without trampling through too much mud for a few couple shots and yes we had to get one with a tractor in it! All in all it was a super day and a fun wedding to be part of!
