As a Stamford wedding photographer I’m really lucky to work in the most gorgeous part of the country. Being based right on the edge of Rutland means a lot of the weddings I shoot take place at private homes and gardens which is great, because each setting is totally unique and pretty unlikely to be repeated. Kelly and Ferg chose to get married at All Saints Church in Stamford and hold the rest of their day at a family farm in Rutland, which gave them tonnes of space to plan one of the most epic of weddings I’ve ever seen.
From the moment I met Kelly and Ferg I knew their wedding was going to be pretty special, and the promise of a summer wedding with festival food, fairground rides and a grand entrance on horseback meant I really couldn’t wait to be part of it. With so much going on having a Second Shooter was absolutely essential for this wedding and I’m so pleased Liv was available to shoot with me. We make a great team and can pretty much read each other’s minds nowadays, meaning Kelly and Ferg ended up with the most pictures we’ve ever taken in the space of 11 hours!
This wedding was packed with so much fun and so many surprises I have to say it’s really hard to do it justice in words. Suffice to say we certainly weren’t short of things to photograph, from running the confetti gauntlet with Midred the dog, Kelly’s THREE surprise dress changes, the grand entrance on Kelly’s stunning horse Darbs and surprising 200 guests with a full on fairground…. Seriously, it was *all* happening at this wedding and I’m sure it’ll be one of my all time favourites for the rest of my career.
I hope you enjoy this stunning wedding and can feel all the excitement of the day through the pictures.
