St Botolphs Church, Saxilby and Hodsock Priory - Rachel & David

Posted on 4th February 2015 by Mark Tierney

Want to know the perfect recipe for fantastic autumn wedding photography? Firstly, take the prettiest tree in the grounds of one of your favourite wedding venues - in this case it was Hodsock Priory. Then, add the brilliant and lovely couple, Rachel and David to the scene. Wait for the glorious sunlight to hit the heavy multicoloured needles of the tree, just moments before it reaches the newly-wed's happy faces. Some weddings write their own classic visual stories and this was one such wedding.

With beautiful attention to detail, Rachel and David were married in a ceremony room filled with lots of love before making a slightly awkward entrance into their camper van. The awkwardness was due to Rachel's dress, which consisted of a serious amount of tulle! However, David heroically wrestled it into submission!

At such a special and memorable wedding, it seems absolutely obvious that the red arrows should have organised a fly past overhead that day. I would have expected nothing less... although it was helpful that their base is located nearby. Thank you for allowing me to be part of your big day, guys. Wishing you a very happy future together.
