Mama mia! What a scorcher for Andy and Suzy’s wedding at St Peter’s Church, Barmburgh followed by a reception at Nostell Priory. It was just such a perfect day for their wedding which began with the preps at Suzy’s family home in the picturesque South Yorkshire village where their country cottage garden provided us with a gorgeous backdrop for the bridal shoot – I love the image of Suzy in the gateway. The small parish church was packed but even the medieval church interior offered little respite from the heat with guests making the most of the order of service which doubled as a makeshift fan :¬) After the service, the couple headed to Nostell in a fabulous old Rolls Royce which we parked in front of the grand house for a few car shots. Then it was onto the rose garden at the back of the riding school for drinks and canapés and the wedding shoot. My goodness, that south facing garden really does catch the sun! At least I was just in a flimsy shirt while Andy and the rest of the guys were in heavy morning suits complete with waistcoats! Still, the gardens were looking great and they were ideal for the shots of Andy and Suzy while the guests tried to hide under the shade of an oak tree and listen to the string quartet that were playing there. This really was a hot summer wedding but I think we got some really super images. I have to do it all over again tomorrow at Nostell when I meet up with Nicola and Ben for their wedding in what looks like the same hot conditions!
