ROSI + SHELLEY’S RELAXED GARDEN WEDDING

 

It was my great pleasure to capture Rosi and Shelley’s relaxed LGBT wedding photography at Rosi’s Surrey family home.  This wedding was destined to fall by the dreaded COVID guidelines, until it was not. For which I am so grateful. When Shelley and Rosi contacted me to let me know their wedding was back on it was thrilling! They were now planning a small wedding and found that it suited them much more than their first grand plan.  With far too many postponed COVID weddings in 2020 …

 

… 2021 was a chance to celebrate, and party they did! 

 

Being an LGBTQ friendly wedding photographer is very important to me. Shelley and Rosi’s love is so wonderful and pure. They are so joyous and I knew they were going to have a wonderful wedding day. I knew this from our meetings and on their Winkworth Arboretum couples shoot. Providing relaxed LGBT wedding photography to their day was integral to my ethics and photographic style.

There is something to be said about planning a small wedding which has been born out of this pandemic. I am absolutely in love with the micro wedding format. Don’t get me wrong big weddings are great but smaller weddings have a different vibe completely. Everyone knows everyone and there is an unspoken closeness to the atmosphere of the day. Shelley and Rosi arrived at their wedding reception in style, met by their closest family and friends. Shelley wore the most amazing suit from Marks and Spencer and Rosi was like a Disney princess in her Elia by Aire Barcelona gown.

With a laid back drinks reception and formal dinner adjacent to the family home, this back garden wedding was bliss. Rosi’s mum had the most wonderful garden for couples portraits – including a pool! Which I had to have them dancing in front of. Later in the night there were the most moving speeches and then lots of fun dancing. All in all it was the most wonderful laid back garden wedding reception.
