It was great to be back at The Barn recently to photograph Kelly & Aston's beautiful day. The barn is a 16th century grade ii listed building in Great Tey, and is so full of charm & warmth. Aston treated Kelly to a stay at Milsom's, a quaint hotel in Dedham. Kelly & her bridesmaid's spent the morning relaxing, drinking champagne, exchanging gifts & getting ready. Kelly's dad was overcome with emotion when he first saw her in her dress, and it was a really beautiful moment to capture. One of the best parts of my job is capturing those moments you wouldn't usually get to see.
The bridal party made their way to The Barn, where Aston was patiently waiting with his best men. It was one of the hottest days of the year, they were blessed with beautiful weather, despite the weather forecast! They made their vowels in front of all their guests at the top of the barn, on the balcony. Kelly & Aston then enjoyed a great wedding breakfast, with some brilliant heart-felt speeches from their family & friends, filling the room with laughter. They were very well looked after by the Barn's wedding planner Claire, ensuring they were well hydrated & coordinating everything perfectly. They had a professional caricaturist working his way around the party too, which brought lots of giggles from their guests (Steve Hearn - highly recommend!). The night went on seamlessly, and the dance floor was full of everyone dancing & having the greatest time.
Big congratulations to Kelly & Aston, a beautiful, sincere & lovely couple, perfectly matched for each other in every way xX
