Today I am sharing a beautiful Autumn wedding, captured on film in a country village. I really love it when couples keep it elegant and pared back. Featuring pops of red and a cream tea reception, this is a classic and elegant fine art wedding. I shared this lovely couple’s engagement shoot a while back.
Finally we have the first snow in years here in the West Country! It’s a real winter wonderland out there, so before it melts away I want to share this late Autumn wedding. With lush greens and rich berry reds it features a beautiful wintry colour palette to the florals and cake, in addition to the fading hues of the Autumn leaves. There are lots of pretty details here – and the most darling flower girl and pageboy!
The country chapel ceremony for close friends and family was followed by a relaxed Cream Tea in the sweet old village schoolroom. The minimalist interior of the Somerset chapel – with light-washed walls and dark oak pews – gave a great backdrop for some crisp imagery. I shot the ceremony mainly on black and white film.
Afterwards in the old schoolroom mouthwatering profiteroles, meringues and scones were laid out on trestle tables, and washed down with local cider! All provided carefully and with exceptional service by local caterer Jean.
A change of venue and outfits saw the second part of this wedding in London, which I will share soon. But for now, enjoy the gorgeous Kodak film tones of this lovely Autumnal Somerset wedding!
