Boho wedding photography.
This wedding really marked the beginning of the hot, hazy summer of 2018 - looking back on it to write this blog post feels like I’m looking through a golden lens. It was in the magical moment while everything was still green, before the fields all turned brown with the heat, and the atmosphere was so light and fun - all of which were perfect ingredients for a beautiful boho wedding.
Harry and Rosie had chosen a Welshpool Registry Office wedding for their ceremony, where the day got off to a sunny start that just kept getting better. After the ceremony, the party continued at Rosie’s parents rural property near Churchstoke, where team wedding had done an incredible job of creating a magical clearing for the marquee in a field overlooking the Shropshire hills.
Emotional, natural wedding photography in Shropshire.
The weddings of long term couples are some of my absolute favourite to shoot, and Harry and Rosie’s beautiful Shropshire festival wedding (actually right on the border with Wales, if we’re getting technical) had all the hallmarks of a long awaited celebration: tenderness, emotion, gratitude for the friends that have been on the journey with them, and all in all a totally amazing atmosphere!
Rosie and Harry wanted their wedding photography to be lighthearted, fun and natural. They were keen for the focus to be on their friends, but were also really happy to devote plenty of time to getting some lovely photos of themselves too, with a portrait session after the wedding at nearby Montgomery Castle as well as nipping off later for a quick golden hour shoot as the sun went down.
Shropshire wedding suppliers.
Rosie and Harry had chosen to keep things simple when it came to suppliers, using local Shropshire wedding suppliers where possible, most of whom they know personally. In addition to this they opted for a high street wedding dress, high street groom and groomsmen outfits and high street bridesmaids dresses.
