Todays wedding is a rather lovely one from last June (yes I am that far behind on my blogging!) and it was a new venue to me – but wow what a gorgeous one it was. This blog is a bepsoke by nature wedding from the gorgeous venue near Hereford. Yes! the venue is called Bespoke by Nature and it really is worth checking out if you are looking for a wedding venue. The wedding was of Chris and Beth and they booked me after I did Beth’s brothers wedding the previous year. That wedding can be found here. When they explained the set up of the day at our initial meeting I was really excited and it did not disappoint.
You can see from the photos below that the venue is gorgeous and in the early part of the day the sun shone so that you really saw how magnificent it is and the lovely views of the Black Mountains are a real treat. It was quite out of the way and if you want somewhere with phone / 4G signal you will be out of luck but it was worth it for the peace and quiet and stunning outlook. The guests mainly camped and to watch people put up tents and then do their make up outside in the field was fantastic. Sadly it got wet later and perhaps camping might not have seemed so much fun.
I was asked to be at the venue for a set number of hours so I did not do the bridal prep and left before first dance. I usually photograph both these elements but it was a nice change not to this time and despite not being there for these moments I still really love these photos. We also had rain and I still love the photos …but you could not fail to get good photos inside the barn (although quite dark) during the ceremony and speeches. The interior just photographed so well and with loads of emotion on display as well it was easy really. We did manage some outside photos of the couple after the main rain had passed but we could not do group shots until after food after an earlier aborted attempt where we only managed one shot before the heavens opened. The final shots of the evening were again with the couple and I so love the photo of them in front of the broken carriage/building. We also managed some with lights and then the final shots against the darkening sky which I had not done before but really loved. Its worth checking out those at the bottom of the page.
Anyway, that’s enough of my rambling for now and I hope you love the photos as much as Beth and Chris were delighted with them.
