Mark & Hannah’s Wedding at Malmesbury Abbey & Great Tythe Barn
Mark & Hannah had their Wedding at Malmesbury Abbey & Great Tythe Barn In Wiltshire & Gloucestershire. I remembered Hannah as the “Smiley Bridesmaid” from Matt & Lydia’s Wedding that I covered last Summer. When she got in touch about her wedding I had to do it! On the day I spent some time with Hannah and her family in the morning. There was such a relaxed feel to them all getting ready and these are some of my favourite prep photos I’ve taken. I loved it when Hannah was being helped into her dress by her Sisters, her Mum was looking on proud as a Mum can be. Jen was with the boys as they were getting ready at Great Tythe Barn and then we made our way to the magnificent setting of Malmesbury Abbey for the ceremony. This Abbey is breath-taking with it’s incredibly tall ceilings and huge pillars. It was one of the grandest ceremony venues I’ve worked in but the atmosphere was far from stuffy and formal. There was tea and cake, lots of hugs, tons of laughter and during the ceremony there was a contemporary band with brilliant 4 part harmonies and Hannah’s Dad doing the address. In the afternoon back at the barn there was so much colour in the decorations, there were garden games and opportunities to feed the pigs and donkeys. Jen and I stayed until after the speeches in the evening. Mark’s Groom’s speech was really touching, talking about how much he cherished Hannah. He made me well-up and a lot of others around the room! I had such a good day with these two, a delightful wedding to document. I hope you enjoy some of my favourite pictures.
Mark & Hannah messaged to say “It was a true pleasure to have you and Jen come and photograph and join us in celebrating our wedding. We loved having you both there, so did our guests, it was just like having old friends celebrating with us. We’ve spent hours looking through all of the photos (multiple times!) and we LOVE them all SO MUCH! We kept laughing and “aww”ing and reminiscing at them as you and Jen perfectly captured all of our golden moments from the day. So so many smiles!! Thank you so much for everything xxxx”
