Hannah and Jack’s wedding was my first taste of Shipston-on-Stour wedding photography. It was also my first full day of wedding coverage for quite some time thanks to the crazy year of COVID! With a few restrictions still being in place, numbers of guests were limited but happiness and sunshine certainly wasn’t! Their wedding ceremony was held at St Edmund’s church in Shiptson-on-Stour before the headed off to Longborough in the Cotswolds for their marquee reception.
Shipston-on-Stour Wedding Ceremony
The parish church of St Edmund’s Church in the market town of Shipton-on-Stour was the location for Hannah and Jack’s wedding ceremony. The church ceremony was lovely and full of emotions. Hannah was greeted outside the church by friends and family on her arrival. These were people not able to attend the ceremony due to the restricted numbers. It was so lovely of them to turn up to pass on their congratulations on her wedding day though.
Countryside Wedding Photography
Jack’s parents hosted the wedding reception on their farm. They had a row of lanterns leading up to a marquee, with bunting and handmade signs. There was a bar made from a converted horse box and then plenty of sunshine. In fact it was one of the hottest days of the year with barley a cloud in the sky all day! Although the bright sun does make wedding photography harder on the day it also provides the bluest of skies for some lovely photos.
Summer in the Countryside
The countryside is the perfect place for a summer wedding. After getting married at St Edmund’s church church in the Warwickshire town of Shipston-on-Stour what could be better than escaping to the peace and quite of the countryside to celebrate with friends and family!
