Amy & Karl
Welcome to Amy and Karl’s wedding at Winkworth Farm in Malmesbury.
I love this part of the country. Often I’m caught up in home counties but I do have a soft spot for heading further west and like to do so whenever I can.
Amy got ready at the family home just a few minutes away from All Saints Church in Garsdon. It’s in the middle of the countryside with fields all around and Amy’s father and Karl renewed the driveway leading up to the church especially for the wedding. It really made it stand out, like a new church!
Special mention also has to go to the vicars who held the ceremony who were quite frankly, amazing.
Ordinarily churches have rules regarding photography and I’m limited in what I can do, where I can be and what I can shoot. In some cases I’m not even allowed to shoot the ceremony itself and if I can it’s often only from the back of the church making it difficult to get a decent aspect.
In this case though, you know you’re on good ground when the vicar is walking around with a selfie stick taking their own photos. That’s material for me. both myself and for Ben from Foster Films. We didn’t expect to see something like that in our lifetime based on our past wedding experiences!
Amy and Karl’s wedding was at the end of May and looking at the weather outside right now (I’m typing this in June) anyone getting married in late April and May made a smart move! The weather was a bit hit and miss but…… changeable is good for photos most of the time!
It was good to be back at Winkworth Farm again, it’s a feature rich venue with lots of opportunity for photos, the sunken gardens are good to use and around this time of year their flower beds have a wall of Tulips to take advantage of.
The rest of the day took place here with speeches, some night photos and an epic bouquet throw to finish it off.
Here are a few more photos from their day and directly below is Ben’s highlight video, you can see more of his work here: http://www.fosterfilming.com/
