A beautiful Autumn wedding at rivervale Barn to feature as my first ever blog post! Daniela and James were married at Rivervale on 26th October 2016. The weather was wonderful, we had blue skies and Rivervale looked Stunning with all of the Autumn colours. I had previously taken their pre wedding photos and James was worried before as he doesn't like having photos taken, but they all enjoyed it and we got some lovely photos. Daniela got ready at her parents house as it was very close to Rivervale. She wore a beautiful dress with Cinderella inspired sleeves and had her hair in a very loose fishtail type plait. The morning was really fun, I knew one of Daniela's bridesmaids Lynsey really well as we both used to have horses at the same yard and we all got on so well, I even got invited on the hen do, but I couldn't go as I had a wedding. Lynsey is in the first photo, I don't know what she was showing Daniela's sister, knowing Lynsey it is probably best we just focus on it being a lovely natural photo :D
Once Daniela arrived at Rivervale I took a couple of photos as they waited in the car and then went into the barn to say hi to James, who was looking quite nervous!
I think Daniela's parents were pretty elated to finally see their daughter married! Daniela and James have been together a long time :)
After the ceremony a serious amount of confetti was thrown and Daniela and James left Rivervale for a quick trip in the car to enjoy a bit of time with just the two of them. I love the guests faces in the background of the confetti photos!
We always do traditional group shots as well, but it is nice to include some that are a bit more fun/natural. I love the one above with their parents. Everyone looks so happy and it is so sweet how mum is giving Daniela a kiss, I didn't ask her to it was just how it happened.
I love how good the reflection is here! Daniela and James chose this one for the canvas and we turned it upside down and you could see them perfectly! The grounds at Rivervale are stunning in Autumn, the next photos with the red tree behind goes so well with the colours in the bouquet.
The speeches were absoloutely brilliant with a lot of crying and laughter. The best men did a brilliant job and both James and Daniella's dad gave emotional speeches which made fantastic photos. After the speeches it was time for the evening reception. Daniella first chose to dance with her father, I love this photo, you can see the pride in her fathers eyes.
Then it was James' turn and I don't think they could look much happier!
The photo studio was a big hit in the evening, we had so many hilarious photos!
