At the end of May we photographed Rachel and Phil’s stunning day at The Tudor Barn in Belstead. This is a relatively new venue for us but one that we’re very much enjoying photographing at.
I started this day with Rachel getting ready with her bridesmaids at her parents house. It was a real treat that the Rhododendron (pink flowered bush) in their garden was in full flower and looked incredible for some pre-wedding pics!
David started with the boys arriving at Belstead Church which was extra special as Phil’s parents had got married there many years earlier so there was a real family connection. Rachel and Phil have a little boy called Matthew who was a little young to understand what was going on but he was a little gem. Even the vicar couldn’t finish the service without laughing as he wiggled his bottom at her in the aisle much to the laughter of the guests!
So many special touches and well thought out details that all came together to make the barn look extra fabulous. Lots of Rose Gold finishes and even the cake had a rose gold layer. I also liked the adult games in the garden and the ‘beer pong’ went down very well. So much to love about these two, their little boy and this day. Also, a quick shout out to the bestman who did one of the best ‘bestman’ speeches we’ve ever heard – it was funny, sentimental and perfect!
Rachel looked radiantly beautiful in her elegant dress and Phil looked every bit her dashing prince charming. As for Matthew … well what can I say, he just looked adorably cute in his little suit and bow tie! They are such a lovely little family and we wish them lots of happiness in their future ahead of them.
Here’s a small selection of their day for you to have a peep at
