This was a great wedding in a great location! I didnt even know Hidden River had a wedding license until I got this request and I just jumped at the chance to work there. The views down the river are gorgeous and coupled with the afternoon, autumnal sun made it lovely and amber across the fields. I had to get the shot down the river after the ceremony too. It had been in my head ever since the recce a few weeks before and I was blown away by how well it turned out. Other favourites are the first dance images, the mango’s and no mango’s outside the loos, the cute dog waiting for the remains of a bacon buttie and not a photo but a nod to the awesome diffused light you get at the cabins with them being in a valley.
Carol and Shaun chose a village fete theme for the party with catering by the incredible Hidden River Cafe and Teepee by Fjell event teepees. Just like at my own wedding thew bar was free and set up so everyone could take a turn at serving the drinks. The coconut shy was popular as well as the hula hooping where everyone managed at least one go. The food too! The food was amazing and the layout was perfect for the amount of people attending.
So summer had one last trick. A wedding full of great laughs and proper indian Summer weather, supplemented by fire pits once the heat dipped below the horizon. I don’t know if I have been to many weddings with an atmosphere like this one. Filled with giggling children and hilarious four legged friends, It’s one that will stay in the memory box for a long time. Congraulations both on what was an amazing wedding day that was a ton of fun to photograph.
