Weddings with an orange theme. And yes, I am referring to the colour, not the fruit. If that’s what you’re after, then look no further as Matt & Becky enjoyed a summer wedding at Kingscote Barn, packed with an orange punch strong enough to knock you off your feet. Okay, maybe it wasn’t quite that severe, in fact having just scrolled down the photos again it’s really nicely done. I’m sure orange is a theme I’ll see cropping up again too, I did read somewhere it’s this seasons colour (although that may have been only in the cycling world!).
Matt & Becky’s wedding threw up an unordinary twist for me to photograph on this occasion, a Polynesian wedding ceremony (I think that was right…please correct me if not), mixed into the typical British civil ceremony. It’s great to see these customs making an appearance, and refreshing from my perspective with some added variation to the photography. Matt’s sister Amy, who presented the Polynesian ceremony has an ebullient charm, making it light hearted yet meaningful, and certainly enjoyable for the wedding guests. One of my favourite photos from the day was in fact capturing her cheer at the end.
With the sun high in the sky, and not a spot of rain on the horizon it was a trouble free wedding to photograph, with a relaxed friendly atmosphere….what more could I ask for?
A summer wedding at Kingscote Barn, with detail (the giant glowing balloons) taken from Matt’s time in Ibiza.
Great bridesmaid hair.
Flowers from Sorori Design were kept on theme with splashes of orange…..or does one refer to that as coral?
Orange bridesmaid dresses, short and summery – I like!
Becky chose orange wedding shoes to finish her look.
What amuses me about this photo is the bridesmaid looking in the mirror, who’s name one week on I’ve now forgotten :-( She spent ages posing in different ways, very entertaining.
Any bride appreciates a wedding day gift that comes in a Gucci bag.
Some glitz for the wedding couple.
Serious attention to detail here with Matt having an orange handkerchief too.
Here we have Matt’s sister taking the additional part of the ceremony.
Firstly the parents light a candle, the couple then exchange gifts from their chosen helpers (kids in this case) followed by the couple having a shawl placed over their shoulders, then a rope over their heads.
To finish the ceremony the wedding couple light a candle to gather themselves.
…..then Amy says something like (yippee) in Polynesian, and cheers! :-)
…after all that we go back to a good old British ‘I Do’ and some kissing!
It’s a great spot on a summers day to have a drinks reception.
A fresh way of presenting the table plan.
How good does this look?
No ordinary knife for Matt :-)
