Sarah and Ed had the most gorgeous Spring wedding at the beautiful Iscoyd Park in Whitchurch. They tied the knot in St Mary’s Whitewell Church just down the road from Iscoyd and spent the rest of the day celebrating with all their friends and family.
I first met Sarah and Ed when I did their engagement shoot in Apley Woods. As soon as I met them I knew that they were going to be a dream to shoot on their wedding day. They were so easy going on their engagement shoot and even had a few ideas of their own for some shots which I loved! Their engagement shoot gave me a good idea of what their wedding would be like and I was absolutely not disappointed!
Getting Ready at Iscoyd Park
Sarah and Ed had booked my Peony package, which includes two photographers (one of which is of course always me!). This meant that they could both have their wedding prep covered. This is the one part of the day that couples don’t usually see each other for so it’s really nice to have two photographers to capture both sides of the story. For their wedding I had my friend Hannah with me from Rocksalt Photography, I love working with Hannah because our styles are so similar you can’t tell who took which photograph. Sarah got ready in the bridal suite at Iscoyd which always has the most beautiful light streaming in through the big windows. Ed got ready with his groomsmen in the library which always looks wonderful!
Tying the Knot at St Mary’s Church
They had their religious ceremony at St Mary’s Church which is a short car ride away from Iscoyd. I’ve shot quite a few weddings here before but I’m always blown away by how beautiful and unusual this church is. It really looks like something out of a film! After their ceremony they made their way outside church to be greeted with lots of confetti being thrown their way by all of their guests. The confetti moment is always one of my favourite parts of a wedding day, it’s always really fun and usually ends up with me being covered with just as much confetti as the couple!
When they made their way back to Iscoyd they started off the afternoon celebrations with a champagne tower. I’ve done A LOT of weddings but this is the first champagne tower I’ve ever seen and I absolutely loved it! It added something extra special to their drinks reception and was really very Sarah and Ed!
I knew that the couple portraits were really important to Sarah and Ed which I really loved because this is my favourite part of every wedding day. It also meant that they were willing to set aside the time needed to create some really stunning images. Sarah wore the most gorgeous Pronovias dress and Ed was looking really dapper in his Reiss suit. We were even lucky enough to have light left over after their speeches and wedding breakfast so we had time to take some more couple portraits after they’d eaten. Sarah and Ed finished off the evening in style with a sparkler exit. Sparkler exits are always a bit like organised chaos but the photographs are always worth it!
Thank you so much Sarah and Ed for having me there to photograph your day!
