Here are a few Kingscote Barn winter wedding photos from Benedict and Emma’s wedding in December 2011. The day started a little further from home than is often the case in Wiltshire, in a quaint village called Kingsotn St Michael. Emma’s home is there and they decided to use the local church for their wedding ceremony, before they would later head off to Kingscote Barn.
Bridal preps were well underway when I arrived, and there was a hive of activity from eth bridesmaids, mum, dad, and the hotly tiped SW hairdresser of the year 9okay I’m not quite sure of his title) but Chris Fordham (www.fhdmobile.co.uk). With Clare Bryce close by for bridal make-up (www.purepampering.co.uk). I often stumble across these two at weddings so I’m certain they must be doing something right. If you’re after a wedding up do, or some great make-up for your wedding photos then look no further than the dream team (as they have been aptly named!).
Emma and Ben are a really relaxed couple, both with a military background, with Emma now working as a dentist. The wedding therefore had a military theme which was a good call in the winter months, as warm woolen suits certainly keep out the chill. The weather was really kind for a winter wedding, making the photos a breeze and the whole day logistically enjoyable (it’s nice not to have snow sometimes!).
Take a look at the winter wedding photos below, but if this selection isn’t enough hop on over to my FB page (mattdavisphoto) and view more online there.
Kington St Michael Church.
Wedding make up by Clare of Pure Pampering
Wedding hair styling by Fordham Hair Design (Chris Fordham – a very nice chap and someone I’d definitely recommend for your wedding day).
Yep, those are instructions for putting on the wedding dress. First, cut straps off….carefull, one wrong move and it could all go sooooo wrong.
It got too hot in the house with all these bodies, so this lady stood in the porch to cool off. Great view through the door though.
What is that you may ask? Well I too thought the same. Apparently wedding dress shop fitter, use this and mark off the correct width to pull up your wedding dress to. Umm clever…..or you could just do it up until it feels tight/comfortable?!
The calm before the storm.
No photography was allowed from the front of the church so it’s all taken from the back on this occasion.
A guard of honour was made for the married couple to depart the church.
Kingscote Barn….hopefully with some warm drinks awaiting inside.
I love this scene setting photo, with all the guests and also the Christmas trees lit up.
If you are thinking of having a Kingscote Barn winter wedding let me know, I’d love to hear from you.
