Well, where do I start?!

Carrie and Amanda’s festival wedding was probably one of my favourites from this year.

When I first met the girls earlier this year, I knew the wedding was going to be a lot of fun. The thing I loved immediately about these two was how UNCONVENTIONAL they were. The whole wedding was going to be about what they wanted it to be: no tradition, no messing about. I loved everything about it.

I travelled up from Harrogate to Durham the day before the wedding for the pre shoot. Unlike any wedding I’ve done before, the girls were getting married at home. The transformation was just unbelievable! The wedding was festival themed, and everything was covered in hay bales, fairy lights, wheelbarrows, flowers and vegetables! There was a giant tipi in the garden looking out on the incredible views across the fields, and more lawn games and bunting than you could shake a stick at!

The wedding day.

Once Carrie & Amanda were both ready, we all went into the conservatory for the first look. This was the first time I had ever done a first look! There were a lot of tears and a lot of laughs, but overall a lovely moment to be a part of.

The ceremony was absolutely hilarious. Everyone had a drink in their hand, and Kate, the celebrant, did a fantastic job of keeping everyone entertained. Donna & her incredible team from NEWP had done a fantastic job of planning the entire day. I’d also like to thank the catering geniuses at Pimp my Pig for one of the best wedding meals I’ve had to date!

The whole day from start to finish was just a laugh a minute. Particularly when a certain smoke bomb nearly set the whole house on fire, but let’s not mention any more about that!
