Ashton & Stephen's Bickley Mill wedding was a brilliant day, despite it being a wet summer’s day that didn't dampen any spirits and I had a great time documenting this a stunning wedding.
I started the day with Ashton, her sister and her mum at Bickley Mill, we got some great photos of them preparing in the morning and it was a relaxed atmosphere with just the three of them. Being at the venue already, I could easily head down into the ceremony room and capture some of the details of the day, as well as guests arriving and Stephen with his groomsmen.
The ceremony was beautiful and intimate, with lots of laughter and love in the room. After the ceremony, the guests joined Ashton & Stephen outside on the decking for a drink and to congratulate them. Fortunately, Bickley Mill has a covered decking area which was perfect for the guests to gather on.
When it came to the couples portraits the covered decking area gave the opportunity to capture some beautiful shots of the two of them together outside. It was great fun working with Ashton & Stephen we really bounced off each other and led to capturing some super relaxed shots.
The evening reception was elegant and relaxed, with the guests enjoying the beautifully decorated venue and the mild evening. There was a brilliant atmosphere with everyone relaxing and enjoying themselves; the kids especially loving the massive bowl of sweets Ashton & Stephen had out.
The evening was accompanied by Bespoke Disco who played from Ashton & Stephens first dance well into the night and got everyone up and dancing. The first dance was beautiful and so romantic, with Ashton & Stephen looking to be really immersed in each other and the moment.
