Emma & Matt

My last wedding of the year was back at Shilstone House for Emma & Matt!

I arrived at the quiet and secluded Meadow Barn, where Emma and her bridesmaids were having their hair and make up prepped.

Matt and his groomsmen arrived at Shilstone later in the day, awaiting the arrival of the guests and seating them in the ceremony barn.

After an intimate ceremony in front of close family and friends the couple were swiftly ushered to the confetti tunnel. (And with strong winds it went everywhere!)

A few formal photos and we moved into the couple portraits around the house and grounds.

This time with the wind working in our favour! (veil shot!)

Reception drinks and canapes before heading up to the marquee for their two course wedding breakfast.

The speeches: I have to say the best men’s speech were the best i’ve heard all year. Rapping about the couple’s relationship to the tune of ‘The Fresh Prince of Bel Air’. Amazing.

I ended my night after capturing some dancing from the couple and their guests to the incredible band they had!
