Mel & Dave’s Winter Wedding at Bassmead Manor BarnsLauraEl
I first met these two when they took a day trip down to Brighton to meet me. I knew from the off that Dave was the one I needed to win over as he simply hated having his photo taken, but still wanted beautiful photos. After a good ol’ cuppa and a natter, Dave said, ‘You’re alright, you are!’…*cue massive grin from me*. I know it sounds daft, but this was a massive compliment for me and I knew how nervous Mel was about Dave being comfortable with the photos side of their day and just by being me, I’d won this pair over. So, whilst it’s easy to focus on the bride for the day, I’m a massive believer that its a day for the both of you. After all, I need you both to help create what I do.
Surrounded by open countryside, Bassmead Manor Barns in Cambridgeshire played host to the prettiest winter wedding of Mel and Dave which had hints of red and purples throughout…oh and a little nod to a Stormtrooper for Dave’s love of Star Wars, of course! With bridal preparation in full swing in the Bridal Boudoir and Dave settled in nicely with the family in Appletree Cottage , I was soon nipping between the two to capture the goings on.
Before long the couple married in the rustic Rickety Barn a 300-year old barn full of twinkly light and romance. Guests nattered and nibbled in the Moat Barn an area full of gorgeous light with views across the pretty gardens and surrounding moat. The day flew by and pretty literally too as the November came in all manners from calm crisp air to gale force winds to horizontal rain and at last a pocket of early evening crisp sunlight.
Congratulations you two and thank you for trusting me! This was an awesome day!
