Oh my golly gosh ~ Olivia and Josh what a sunset and what a day!

I feel so blessed to have got to capture these two’s special day with so many incredible vendors – we had so many good laughs in the morning.

Josh and Olivia have not only been so kind to us, but also my daughter Audrey and I couldn’t wish for nicer clients. I think we fell in love with their whole family!

A few special moments for me were that both Olivia and Josh had their siblings as their bridal party. Olivia, her two brothers, and Josh, his brother, and sister. It was pretty neat to have bro-maids as Olivia calls them and mix it up a little for photos!

During the ceremony all the mum’s cried, we cried, it was stunning and the light and reflection hit the Corbridge pond so beautifully. All the barley had been cut and I had spied some neat hay bales all lined up for some bridal party photos, then we went along to a secret spot that Josh and I found for couples photos – we seriously spent hours looking for a perfect spot the week before and we were so glad we managed to find such a neat spot!

Catering was by Quentin at Wild Earth with the delicious smoked barrels (the salmon is to die for). Just as dinner was being served I spied the most beautiful sunset, I quickly grabbed Olivia who agreed that we had to grab Josh to take some pics and I’m so glad they agreed – this is why it’s so important to spend a bit of time when the light is right for photos.. because you will get magic at the right time of day.

We were also filming this wedding, so can’t wait to share it when it’s all done!
