Gemma and Paul are getting married in August this year. I’m excited for their wedding for a number of reasons, one of which is that they’re getting married in the village I live in, the church my parents got married in and the church I was Christened in. Wrockwardine village in Shropshire is such a lovely place and we’re all incredibly lucky to be able to call it home. We decided that as it is literally on our doorstep and it is so beautiful that it would be the perfect place to have their Engagement shoot. So one evening we took a walk round, having a chat about their wedding and what they’re specifically looking forward to about it, stopping every now and then to get some lovely shots of them together.
We walked to meet each other as we only live a few moments walk away, and Gemma turned up in THAT DRESS! and Paul was looking super sharp in his suit! We did their Engagement shoot in May so the Rapeseed fields were in full bloom, we absolutely had to make the most of them. Gemma battled through the hayfever for us to get some beautiful shots of them amongst the yellow. Rapeseed fields are so beautiful, I always feel the need to use them, at least once every year.
I was absolutely thrilled when Gemma and Paul decided to book me as their photographer for their day. One of my aims since I began doing wedding photography was to get a wedding in Wrockwardine village church, as I see it nearly every day, it’s such a gorgeous village church and it holds a special meaning to me for a number of reasons. I’d also love to do more weddings in Shropshire as a whole, we are so lucky in Shropshire to be surrounded by gorgeous countryside whichever way we look, you’re never too far away from a field.
Gemma and Paul, I cannot wait to share your wedding day with you in August!
