We were excited to capture Rob and Annie’s wedding because it was completely unique as it took place on a private farm. Along with their friends and family, they did an amazing job of clearing out a wooded area and transforming it into a special place to exchange vows. The trees were adorned with fairy lights and the seating area was constructed from logs and wooden beams.
When it comes to capturing a wedding, we try to tell a meaningful story and this was made all the more easier because Rob and Annie had decided to exchange cards in the morning with some special words for each other. In addition to this, one of Annie’s bridesmaid read a beautiful poem entitled ‘The Magic of Love’. Words are so powerful and we always try to use them to help tell the story.
It was also special for us to work alongside Katie from True Blue Ceremonies for the first time. Katie is an independent celebrant and really made the ceremony feel extra special. As friends and family gathered around Rob and Annie in the woodland, Katie told us the story of how the couple first met, how Rob had proposed to Annie, and the reasons why Rob and Annie Love each other before the exchanging of vows.
After the emotion of the ceremony Rob and Annie headed off into the sunshine in the adjacent field to celebrate with loved ones before moving to the Tipi for something to eat and speeches.
We were very fortunate to be working alongside Rebecca Douglas Photography. We took Rob and Annie for a little walk during the day to capture some magical moments of them together. With some photographers we have a very good dynamic and this enables us to capture fun, happy and relaxed moments. Rebecca always does a very good job at putting people at ease and bringing out the fun which is very helpful for us.
The evening celebrations were wild and everyone seemed to be having so much fun. As some guest relaxed outside on what was a warm summer evening, others danced the night away on the dance floor.
It was such a privilege to be able to tell Rob and Annie’s woodland wedding story. They are such warm, relaxed and fun people and made us feel welcome to be a part of their day. It is evident that they have a deep love for each other and we wish them all the best for the future.
