A Rainy Day Summer Wedding didn’t dampen the atmosphere one bit!
On a Rainy day in Summer Declan and Gabi had a wicked party in the middle of the countryside at Almonry Barn in Somerset. It was so awesome to see them again having shot their Engagement Session only a few months earlier! In the morning the girls got ready together and Gabi’s sister Dani did her make up. The girls had beautiful gold detailed dresses and looked absolutely gorgeous. Gabi’s dress was simply stunning, in fact I don’t think I’ve seen one similar to it and she looks absolutely breathtaking. The lace sleeves details and skin coloured mesh just looked flawless and obviously seeing her in it for the first time made her dad cry.
Meanwhile the boys were getting ready, and celebrating with hip flasks full of spirits and I just loved how the rain didn’t dampen the atmosphere one bit.
There wasn’t a dry eye in the entire ceremony room as Gabi walked down the aisle on her dad’s arm. Dec at the end of the isle trying so hard to hold back the floods of tears. The whole ceremony was beautiful, really moving and so meaningful. After the ceremony the drinking began, starting inside because of the rain. I just love capturing this part of a wedding day when everyone is waiting their turn to congratulate the happy couple. These guys hugged everyone so tightly it was gorgeous to capture.
As soon as the rain stopped Gabi and Dec headed outside for a bit of time, just for them. The ground at Almonry Barn are really beautiful, so we wandering around the garden and got some beautiful portraits of the two of them before taking the very important family photos followed by heading in for their Wedding Breakfast.
The Barn Wedding Reception
The Barn looked so beautiful decorated in a beautiful array of white flowers. The White flower fitted Gabi’s elegant style so very perfectly. I always say, it’s so important to be true to yourself when planning your wedding day, and they honestly couldn’t have got it more right if they tried. The whole places just looked simply stunning.
If things don’t go to plan on the day, don’t be scared to move things around.
After their food and their wonderful heartfelt speeches the sun was shining so everyone headed outside. We had a regig of their plans on their day and decided to save the confetti from after the ceremony until the sun came out, so we did this after dinner too. They had drink and cigars on the lawn before heading in for an awesome party lead by the amazing Foreign Affairs band.
“We couldn’t be any happier with our photos, we absolutely love them! I must have gone through all 955 about 10 times already and every time different ones stand out. Everyone else that has seen them is so in love with them as well!! You are so crazy talented 😊 We couldn’t have asked for better photos from someone any more lovely to be at our wedding xxxx”
