Last weekends wedding at Kingscote Barn had a rather unpredictable start to the day. It wasn’t weather related either, in fact we’d had a rather nice run of weather in Gloucestershire the past week. On this occasion it was the groom who took centre stage, with a potential no show on his wedding day. Cold feet, a change of heart? Nahhh, Dax was in fact in hospital having taken a turn for the worst. So was the wedding going to go ahead, that was the talk of the day!
Read on to find out, with the usual few photos from Dax & Sarah’s emotional wedding at Kingscote Barn to accompany my chit chat!
Bridal preps usually involve peeping out the window at some stage to see your wedding guests arriving.
…and when your guests do arrive, some have clearly pulled out all the stops with fashionable head wear!
Possibly the best way to greet wedding guests – with a quick dance at the door, after sending them on their way to photograph the seating plan ;-)
Back at bridal preps the mornings events were far more choreographed than I’d typically expect.
At this point we heard the news that Dax wasn’t well, and the ceremony was going to be pushed back half an hour? So, what does one do when they’re almost ready……kick back, switch on MV and dance around the room obviously!
Nervous, anxious, concerned, apprehensive? All and more I’d say.
So Dax arrived and due to feeling very unwell had to sit. Love this photos with both mums looking on with concern.
When the moment finally came for Sarah to see Dax it was definitely special. He even stood up…..but held on tightly to the chair it would appear!
It’s quite unusual for a wedding ceremony to take place with both the bride and groom sat down. Sarah made the point “this dress isn’t meant for sitting in” and I’d quite agree!
When the moment came for the ring exchange Dax was back up on his feet and had a sparkle back in his eye.
Being March (and somewhat chilly & damp), meet & greets outside were short lived, guests soon headed back inside to the warmth of the barn.
It was a wee bit drab & damp outside Kingscote Barn, but that’s March for you I guess. Needless to say, we made the best of a few minutes away from guests (albeit a few cling’d on to sneak photo opportunities) and produced some intimate couple portraits, whilst Dax was still standing!
I can’t decide which I prefer….in fact there were several other photos beyond these as well. So, which is your favourite a) above, or b) below?
After a swift 5 mins of photos, it was back inside for the wedding reception, whilst Dax took a well earned rest to recharge for later.
It didn’t take long before impromptu dancing started during the drinks reception.
If you are having a wedding at Kingscote Barn definitely consider someone like this acoustic guitarist during the drinks reception. He also played at the wedding ceremony, and was a great entertainment throughout.
Mother of the groom was soon invited onto the dance floor, whilst one of Sarah’s bridesmaids sang – how cool is that?
Despite such fun, the festivities had to be cut slightly short due to the wedding breakfast being served, but by this point Dax was back in the rom and recharged ready for dinner!
