Leez Priory, a stunning venue for Ellen and Barney’s Winter wedding.
Having already photographed Ellen and Barney at Leez Priory for their pre wedding shoot at the end of Summer. We were even more excited about capturing their wedding day. We had met the couple on three occasions prior to the wedding, at a wedding show, pre shoot and viewing session. As a result of this, we all felt relaxed and comfortable in each others company, which allowed Ellen and Barney to enjoy their day without worrying about having their photographs taken. For us, it not only adds to the enjoyment of our job, but allows us to capture more natural shots of a couple who feel at ease in front of the camera and being captured unaware.
A misty winters morning the week before Christmas and all the elements of their day were coming together perfectly. Yes, it was pretty chilly but the guests soon warmed up the ceremony room in the tower and hot chocolate was served after the marriage – the perfect winter warmer!
As it was a dry day we were able to photograph the couple and family group photos outside in the remaining daylight which was ideal. A few photographs of the couple with the venue as the backdrop made a fitting round off to the daylight before the candle lit wedding breakfast.
A truly adorable couple, elegant venue, fine food and fabulous family and friends made this a day to remember.
