With a groom making a break for it out of the window and an absent bride with the wedding ceremony due to begin it might have been every wedding photographer’s worst nightmare come true. However, there were perfect explanations to the events that took place on the morning of Claire and Tony’s home marquee wedding 🙂 Tony had managed to get locked-in at his brother James’ house and Claire…well, isn’t it every bride’s prerogative to keep her husband-to-be waiting in anticipation for a short while!
Not many couples are in the position of being able to take full control of their wedding venue, however Claire and Tony were in the fortunate position of being able to utilise the large garden of Claire’s parents house to host their celebrations. With a large marquee set out on the back lawn and the garage transformed into a pub, the family home was a spectacular setting. Claire’s homemade branch and pom pom centrepiece within the marquee provided a show-stopping focal point that rivalled professional decorations and the Wainwrights ale certainly went down a treat with guests. Kind neighbours had even offered their gardens for any formal shots of the happy couple and their families 🙂
The stoking of the pizza oven marked the beginning of the evening celebrations and the band got the party in full swing, along with the array of gins stocked on the ‘gin table’! The perfect end to the day.
A happy text I received from Tony, followed by some storytelling images of this awesome home marquee wedding…
” Thanks so much for sending through the links. I would send you an email but I can’t get the laptop off Claire! We absolutely love the photos. So many fantastic shots and so many other things we either missed or forgot about”
