An Autumn Garden Wedding near Stamford

It was a particularly hot summer’s day when I first met Rosie and Thanasis in Southorpe. We spent about an hour chatting through wedding ideas in the garden, sunglasses on, drinking cups of tea in the sunshine. I remember thinking that we’d be very lucky to be spend this much time outside at the end of October, so was totally thrilled when we were blessed with such mild weather on their wedding day.

Rosie and Thanasis got married at Barnack church and celebrated with a huge party at Rosie’s parents’ home in nearby Southorpe in late October last year. The villages surround Stamford are totally gorgeous, I feel so lucky to be a wedding photographer in this part of England. When Autumn comes there’s lots of colour to be found and Rosie and Thanasis used this warm and rustic palette to inspire their day. They wanted their wedding photography to be as unobtrusive and relaxed as possible which is absolutely the best way to enjoy your day I believe. We decided to take no formal photos at all until the drinks reception began, and even then we only spent around 30 minutes on their group and couple photos combined. Rosie’s parents’ garden led out onto a public footpath which gave us a nice quiet location to hide away in as guests arrived. It was all very peaceful until we were totally swamped by an enormous swarm of ladybirds! They were absolutely everywhere and eventually we had to give in and take shelter! With lots of Greek food and dancing the evening was super fun, the Greek band kept everyone entertained and on the dance floor all night. I love photographing energetic dancing, even though I got a bit too close at one point and nearly landed a foot in my camera!  I really hope you enjoy browsing through some of their photos on today’s blog, congratulations again Rosie and Thanasis and thank you for having me along to capture it all!
