Kate & Matt chose their family church at Purton for their intimate wedding.

The Baptist church at Purton was a perfect setting for Kate & Matt’s intimate wedding and their thirty guests. Kate arrived by horse and carriage so I was able to get lots of fabulous shots as she was driven through the village to the church.

The vicar was great too. I loved the relaxed way she conducted the Ceremony, making everyone feel so welcome. The little church is perfect for a small wedding;  there was a real feeling of warmth and love in there.

My brief was to take lots of Kate’s family sitting on the seat in the churchyard dedicated to her Gran who had died a year earlier with Matt’s family having group shots by the front of the church. I took lots of candid shots too but I knew how important the family shots were to the couple.

Afterwards tea & home-made cakes were served in the church hall which was decorated with lots of bunting then most of the guests walked across the road to the Sharpness canal which runs along Purton. The bridge opposite the church is a local landmark with wonderful views along the canal. I took some fun shots of the boys and the couples’ friends and the bridesmaids too who perched for me on the bridge.

Matt & Kate’s favourite shots are the ones of the two of them by the canal. You should have seen the face of the two walkers when they saw a bride & groom standing there on the tow path! They had to take a couple of pictures too.

I’m so glad the weather was perfect for this intimate wedding. Congratulations to you both and thank you for choosing me to photograph your special day.
