The wedding at last…
Millie & Alex booked me pre-pandemic for their wedding photography at Thorpe Garden. They had to postpone a couple of times over the following years as they wanted to invite all their friends and family without the Covid restrictions that were in place whenever they tried to book their special day. In fact it had been so long since they booked me that they had already been married officially and so the wedding I photographed was a blessing that their friends and family could witness.
And it really was worth the wait. It was a gorgeous sunny day for their outdoor ceremony and I loved the blessing, which was so personal and beautifully done. My favourite part of the ceremony was a bible reading from the book of Ruth. It is not one I have heard read at a wedding before and I thought it captured the absolute feeling of love so perfectly.
Reading from Ruth
But Ruth said, “Do not urge me to leave you or return from following you. For where you go I will go, and where you lodge I will lodge. Your people shall be my people, and your God my God. Where you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord do so to me and more also if anything but death parts me from you.” And when Naomi saw that she was determined to go with her, she said no more.
Wedding Photography at Thorpe Garden
My first wedding at Thorpe Garden, and what a great venue it is to photograph. Filled with gorgeous flowers, the lovely grounds were romantic and picturesque; just loads of little spots for great pictures. I was spoilt for choice. Millie and Alex had a ceilidh in the evening, which was such a great end to a wonderful wedding. I shall let me photos do the rest of the talking!
