I first met Emily and Kieren when I photographed Kieren's cousins wedding John to his wife Amy. My first thoughts when Emily and Kieren came for a chat about their own wedding at Wasing Park including an outdoor ceremony was this is going to make the BEST photos! Getting ready in the morning Emily wanted to have a really natural look with minimal makeup and relaxed hair down.
Emily chose a simple figure hugging dress, I love this photo of her fathers reaction to seeing her as the finishing touches are completed.
Kieren's dad shares a joke just before the ceremony begins.
I love this little flower girls reaction as bride and groom are pronounced man and wife.

And they are still laughing together, I would much rather take a photo like this than getting serious posed look at the camera and grin pictures! I prefer to capture people as they are.
Group photos look so much better when people are really smiling rather than forcing it for photos, I love to capture the group pictures in a more natural way.
The Wasing Park cat had to be in the photos, this cat is winning at life, he is now surrounded by an entire group of cat lovers and being the most cuddly cat in the world this is his lifes ambition. I have lost count of how many photos this cat has photobombed!
Simple flowers in vases on tree stumps looked so gorgeous and fitted perfectly with the natural feel of the day, Wasing Park doesn't need too much as the barn building is so beautiful in its own right.
Tears and a lot of laughter during the speeches. Kieren's; speech was brilliant, he is so funny anyway., it was always going to be good.
The most adorable flower girls ever and their little outfits were just so perfect.
Guests relaxing outside before the evening reception begins.
Some dreamy light in these photos taken when the sun was a little lower in the sky. Wasing Park has the most amazing grounds for photos and as everything is so close together it makes the photos so much quicker to do, so more time for Kieren and Emily to relax with guests and enjoy the day.
Giggling through the first dance a very happy ending to a perfect day, congratulations to Emily and Kieren
