I met Abbey and Joe through Sammi, Joe's sister who's wedding I photographed a couple of years before, it was great to see so many familiar faces on the day and I felt like one of the girls in the morning. We started the day with all of the girls getting ready in the cottage on the grounds of Oakley Hall.
Abbey's dress was just dreamy with a tulle skirt and high neck, very bohemian and relaxed.
One of Abbeys bridesmaids was an mua and did Abbeys make up in the morning, she looked perfect. Hair was by Nicky Weller, a beautiful relaxed style that perfectly matched with Abbey's dress.
Amazing details dream shoes for any girl! Being given her flowers by Buds Floristry, Abbey's face says it all :)
Doing up the dress, the girls reaction the first time they see Abbey in her dress is priceless.
Tears and happy faces
Time for a couple of photos of this gorgeous bunch before the ceremony.
The boys waiting in the ceremony room at Oakley Hall, Joe is such a joker he is always laughing, this photo perfectly sums up his personality. That is dad laughing in the background with Joe's niece, I wander where he gets it from!
A very happy bride and groom
Possibly even happier wedding guests as Joe and Abbey are pronounced man and wife!
The boys giving Joe the bumps.
Stunning panoramic views at Oakley Hall over neighbouring farmland made for some beautiful photos of the two of them together.
Laughing together, that is all these two did all day, it made my job easy!
Joe laughing with Abbey during the speeches. Abbey and Joe had their wedding breakfast in the marquee at Oakley Hall. Joe's mum wiping away the tears in a more tender moment.
Wedding guests giggling together over photos.
After the room turnaround Abbey and Joe did their first dance, I got this photo just after the guests came and joined the two of them when they thought nobody was watching. The natural photos are always the best :)
