Sandhole Oak Barn Wedding dancing

“Your photos make me teary. In the best possible sense.”

Sarah and Ravi definitely know the importance of family and friends and living life to the full. Both work as nurses, and have recently been providing aid to those in war-torn countries (the first time I met to chat with Sarah, Ravi was working at a hospital in South Sudan). Their wedding was a welcome chance to come together with family and friends in a day of fun and celebration. The pair actually got engaged and planned their entire wedding during a short holiday to Italy, that’s efficiency for you! Fast forward a few short months and the big day at Sandhole Oak Barn was upon us.

The wedding was definitely an international affair, Ravi and his family are from Canada, and guests had literally come from all corners of the globe to celebrate. As such the festivities started early, with a ‘quiet meal’ in a small Cheshire village the night before…escalating into a pre wedding party of the likes not seen by locals before!

To give you an idea of how welcoming and down-to-earth this couple are, I arrived at Sandhole Oak Barn on the morning of the wedding to be welcomed with a huge hug from Ravi. Nothing out of the ordinary you may think, I should add that Ravi was wearing only a towel and this was the first time we had met! 😉

Sarah and the girls were getting ready in one room, and Ravi and his brother in another. Giving me the opportunity to capture the preparation from both perspectives,  champagne and a chilled out atmosphere with the girls and shots/ pre-party drinks for Ravi and his family and friends.

After the wedding ceremony and breakfast, the amazing wedding band, Mulder & Co. made sure the party was absolutely rocking, this was one of the craziest dancefloors I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing….one of the hardest parts of my job is resisting the urge to down my camera, grab a beer and join in the party!

It was great to be part of such a day. Some of my favourite documentary wedding photography from the day below, starting with my pre hug greeting from Ravi…
