Back in July of this year, which now the dark nights and cold are back seems an age away, I was at the wedding of Neil and Jennifer at Dodford Manor. Neil & Jen are a great couple and I have been really looking forward to their wedding since they had booked me 6 months earlier. Jen is an artist and Neil a musician and the fun and laid back attitude they both share was quite infectious.
This was my first time doing Dodford Manor wedding photography and it is a really beautiful old Georgian barn which has been pristinely restored to provide a great wedding venue. It is set in lovely and private Northamptonshire countryside. I would encourage anyone looking for a summer venue to check it out. Here is a link to the site.
I quite often only get to spend the morning with the Bride, but on this occasion both Neil and Jen were at the venue. While Jen was having her hair and make up done, Neil was doing sound checks in the second barn ready for the evening. So in between make up and hair I was popping back and forth to act as an impromptu sound engineer for Neil check levels on the microphones.
Jen looked amazing in a dress made completely by herself and it was a lovely service broken up half way through to a group sing along to “Bring me Sunshine”
I have recorded the speeches which I will be working on to create a photofilm of the day which I will post another day. I think it is the first time a have been at a wedding where most of the evening entertainment was provided by the Grooms and his band. It was great fun and created a great party atmosphere.
I’ve out a few of the images together in a gallery below. I hope you like them.
