Welcome back to our little wedding blog and a type of blog we haven't done for a while - a real wedding blog! We say that like we ever post about fake weddings, which we don't. Here's Maddie and Chris and their wedding photography at Mythe Barn.
Oh! You want to know a bit more about the day and who on earth Maddie and Chris are? Well let's try to support your unwavering need for content content content.
We first met Maddie and Chris on an evening Zoom call and we managed to somehow convince them that we are the wedding photographers of their dreams (or words to that effect). The deal included a pre-wedding shoot, which was our next opportunity to get to know them. A pre-wedding shoot is an ideal way for us all to find out how we work best together and to ensure that they are more comfortable on their wedding day.
The pre-wedding shoot was at Market Bosworth Country Park, a stone’s throw away from their wedding venues. We haven’t included any pre-wedding shoot photos in here, but that’s because you want to see the big day! Right?
The Big Day
The joy of two photographers allows us to split up in the morning and capture preparation shenanigans with both Maddie and Chris. Maddie was getting ready at her family home in Sheepy Magna and Chris opted for a rather nice Air B&B in the same village (what an excellent idea!).
After Chris had hidden the rings from his best man (insert panic here) he walked to All Saints Church carrying a big cardboard box – obviously. Maddie arrived half an hour later looking utterly stunning and without a cardboard box.
They tied the knot in front of a packed out audience of family and friends. After a few photos outside of the church, guests headed off to Mythe Barn just two minutes down the road. We stuck around with Maddie and Chris to grab some lovely couple shots around the church (see below). This included a photo or two with Chris’s pride and joy – the Mini (see below – you know the score…).
Fun, fine food and excellent speeches took centre stage at Mythe Barn. But the evening will live long in the memory for us. Firstly, because we had a dance or two with the bride and groom (not a regular occurrence). And secondly, because of the outstanding dance moves of the groom and his best man. Was it an air guitar? We’re not sure, but it looked like they were tearing up the dancefloor like nobody was watching. Legends.
Nice, different ideas from the day:
Vinyl records for the guests to sign with white markers
Air B&B house for pre-wedding preparations
Have a private dance (not that kind...) before the wedding breakfast.
