A Matara wedding …
I first heard from Jenny many months before her wedding as she was looking for a Cotswold wedding photographer and had secured the most gorgeous wedding venue, the Matara Centre, just outside of Tetbury. As some of you may know, from reading my blogs and watching my posts, I have not photographed many weddings (AHEM, only 2 weddings to be precise) so the thought of photographing a wedding at Matara filled me with both excitement and a huge amount of nerves. I had many many sleepless nights with visions of falling in their koi pond with both my cameras!
My wedding package includes a complimentary pre-wedding shoot, which is when i met Jenny and Daniel for the first time. I thoroughly enjoyed the pre-wedding shoot and I so enjoy working with a couple that lets me follow my own creative path with them. They put no pressure on me and had no expectations and I honestly feel that is when a photographer is able to produce their best work. When we have the freedom of expression. I just loved their pre-wedding photos and I knew, after that shoot, that their wedding was going to be both magical and memorable.
Getting married under the Wisteria
Matara is a photographer’s dream venue. Really. It is. Do you know that the beautiful wild flower meadow actually has a pathway (yes, tis true!) cut into it to allow for easy access for the bride and groom to walk through? Uh, amazing and just the thought of every photographing another wedding there makes me giddy with excitement. Jenny arrived on the arm of her father, and looked breathtakingly beautiful. Daniel , looking exceptionally handsome in his blue suit, waited patiently under the Wisteria for her. The ceremony was just perfect and I managed to shoot the entire thing without falling in the koi pond :) So, really it was a great wedding at a truly special venue.
