So how can you follow a surprise engagement on the top of the Empire States Building in New York? Answer – with a beautiful vintage wedding at Folly Farm near Bristol! We joined them in the morning getting ready. Sarah with a little help from her Bridesmaids; Laura, Jo, Sophie & Mindy – who incidentally were superb fun throughout the day. And of course a little background music by Florence and the Machine. Sarah looked stunning and was walked down the aisle on her Mum’s arm ..and yes, even I had a tear in my eye (along with one or two others). And the speeches – what can I say? The Best Man, Tom, delivered an epic and brilliantly planned speech which will stay with me for a long time! “…Tidal wave!” absolutely priceless. I can honestly say I’ve never seen the groom tied up in cling film on a sac truck on his wedding day! What a fantastic sport and great sense of humour Wayne. You’ll notice the colour purple featured throughout, with some fantastic design work by Gary Milton at Harvest Design. Music during the service included tracks by Elbow (One Day Like This), Emeli Sande (River) and Florence (You’ve got the love) Waynes passion for cycling shone through with a beautifully restored tandem bike, with their names and wedding date stencilled on to the frame. The guests enjoyed the mighty ‘Cider Pig’ – an old French Fire Engine which has been converted in to a vintage cider bar. Despite the weather, we really enjoyed our creative shoot alone with Sarah & Wayne, so we’ve kicked off with those photos – then it’s back to the start of the day. Please enjoy and feel free to leave comments at the end x
