Guests look on as a bride and groom kiss outside an English country church

Wiltshire country church wedding for Emma and James

Emma and James wanted a professional wedding photographer for just their marriage service. Their wedding took place in All Saints, Whiteparish,on the day after the Feast of All Saints. Quite a coincidence!

Autumn colours were still very much in evidence as guests gathered outside the ancient flint church in the heart of this pretty village near Salisbury. Emma arrived in a vintage Bentley and assembled with her father and bridesmaids outside the west door, where I took some photos full of excited anticipation.

The nave was full for the service, conducted by Vicar of Whiteparish, Revd Jane Dunlop, Members of the congregation sang the hymns with gusto  – JerusalemShine, Jesus, shine and Sing Hosanna. Emma and James exchanged several loving glances during the readings before exchanging their vows.

Group photos took place in the churchyard following the service. Guests gradually peeled away to make their way to the reception, leaving Emma and James for some beautiful shots framed by the church with its distinctive wooden steeple.

Their limousine journey was about the shortest ever: around the corner and into the church hall car park next door. Even so, they got the traditional classic car photos. At this point, I left them to enjoy their meal with family and friends at the start of their new life together.
