Last Friday I was back at Shustoke Farm Barns in Warwickshire for Steph and Rik’s wedding. After rain in the morning, the weather improved so the guests were able to enjoy the lovely courtyard for most of the day, although we did have to dodge the showers at times!
The venue was beautifully styled with a travel theme, reflecting Steph and Rik’s love of globetrotting. Shustoke is such a gorgeous venue and the flowers from Appleblossomwhite fitted perfectly – the sunflowers looked amazing!
Steph looked amazing in her Benjamin Roberts dress - the sparkly belt set it off perfectly. Her hair was beautifully styled by Jessica Jordan of Mode Bridal Hair and her make up was expertly done by Rachael Claire Bridal.
One of the best parts of my job is capturing the range of emotions during the day and there was certainly no shortage of laughter or tears. The tissues came out several times as Steph got ready and they were needed again during the ceremony and the speeches!
The day was rounded off with a brilliant set from Apollo Soul, which really got everyone up and dancing.
Thanks to Steph and Rik for trusting me to capture their day and thanks also to my lovely friend and awesome second shooter Amy for covering the guys in the morning.
