Russell & Charlotte's Notley Abbey Wedding

On Sunday August 7th Russell and Charlotte were married at Notley Abbey near Thame. It is a stunning venue with medieval architecture and modern interiors.

The morning of the wedding was a little fraught as once again the heavens opened and there was a lot of uncertainty about the ceremony being held outside - however you can see from one of the shots of the ceremony below that Charlotte made the right decision to go for it as half way through the sun came out and the sky was blue.

Things that I love and remember about this lovely wedding were firstly the bride and groom - Russell and Charlotte are such nice individuals and a great couple.

Charlotte's mum, Jayne, had put such a huge effort into so many details including the beautiful dress for Amelia the flowergirl, the flowers and the incredible cake.

I like this image of Charlotte getting ready in the bridal suite because she looks so calm and happy.

I had 10 mins or so with Russell and his best man Craig. This is my first wedding with kilts and I was asking them loads of questions about the jackets, socks, sporrans etc.

Here Craig was telling Russell that Charlotte had appeared.

This is such a lovely moment - the two of them looking at each other properly for the first time.

That blue sky was a total shock to all of us - minutes earlier the ceremony was nearly going to take place inside the Abbey.

Charlotte is a school teacher and her class attended the ceremony and joined in the confetti throw.
Notley Abbey is very well known for the tree lined avenue and they wanted to use it for the main location of their photos alone. I love these next few images - I think they both look absolutely gorgeous.

And I loved Russell's kilt - which looked so fab next to the bouquet.

The boys. The car. The kilts. Great.

The first dance was followed by a ceilidh band - again a first for me. Probably stupidly I threw myself into the centre of the action and narrowly missed flying limbs. It looked exhausting but huge fun.

And here are a last couple of images of the two of them alone.

We finished off outside Notley which looked very dramatic all lit at night - I love the orange of the lights against that deep blue sky.

I'm looking forward to seeing them both soon to share the rest of their story with them.
