At the beginning of July we photographed the gorgeous Rebecca and Richard at their local wedding at Brundish in Suffolk. They had their ceremony at Brundish Church followed by their marquee reception on Rebecca’s parents’ farm also in Brundish. I started with Rebecca getting ready at her parents and the effort her mum and dad had put into doing the garden for this day was incredible, it looked so stunning I could have spent many hours just admiring the plants! David started at the church with Richard and the guests arriving.
The weather forecast for this day wasn’t great with thunderstorms, heavy rain and sunshine all thrown into the mix. We were very lucky that it didn’t rain on us when we were at the church and when we did have a heavy thundery shower back at the farm thankfully there was plenty of room in the marquee for guests to shelter. Although I would never hope for rain I sometimes think that it really helps everyone to socialise as rather than dividing off into lots of little groups everyone is in smaller space and mingle more. When it’s just a shower it also means you get some great dramatic skies for photos with a warm sunshine glowing around people … just beautiful.
This was a relaxed day and it’s clear to see that Rebecca and Richard are both adored by their friends and family (it’s not hard to see why as they are a lovely couple). It was a joy to photograph them all. Rebecca looked radiant in her stunning dress and Richard looked every bit as handsome in his suit
Rebecca and Richard kindly sent us the following thank you card after seeing their images which we really appreciate and I hope they won’t mind me sharing with you:
‘Dear Hayley and David,
Richard and I cannot thank you enough for everything you did on our wedding day. Looking back over the photos and reliving the day has been fantastic and so emotional.
The photo’s you both took are stunning and capture the day beautifully. Dad keeps commenting on the photos and whenever he looks at them a tear comes to the eye.
You both were so lovely to work with and made Richard and I so relaxed, we were thrilled you could be a part of our special day.
Wishing you a very good summer filled with weddings.
Richard and Rebecca’
Rebecca’s dad also wrote to me separately to thank us but I’m going to save that one for another post so I can talk about this day some more.
We’re certain Rebecca and Richard will have a long and happy marriage ahead of them and we really hope our paths will cross with both them and their friends and family in the future
Here’s a small selection of photos from their day to have a look at
