This gorgeous Real Wedding has been shared by the highly talented Kevin Belson Photography, a Wiltshire based husband and wife team of documentary wedding photographers who love to tell the story of your wedding day in a truthful, un-posed and authentic way.
Read on to hear what Kevin had to share of this lovely Autumnal rustic barn wedding in Lower Lawn Barns in Tisbury.
It was a beautiful day for a Wiltshire wedding. We started in the morning when I dropped Carol off at Olie's parent's house to photograph the boys and family getting ready. I went on to Salisbury where Bee was getting ready with the girls.
Olie and Tom, the best man, left for the venue in Olie's Austin-Healy 3000 a gorgeous vintage car that everyone was jealous of. Later in the day there was a queue of guests lined up to have a selfie with the car.
Bee's bridesmaids presented her with a keepsake album documenting their friendship over the years. Every bride has a moment, usually when they get the dress on, but Bee couldn't hold the emotion back as she poured over the images and messages from her best friends.
At the church we met up with our friend James Fisher who was the videographer for the day. It's fantastic to meet up with people that you know and have worked with previously - It makes the day a bit more fun! The church was full when Bee arrived in the wedding car with her Dad.
Olie was ex-military so after the ceremony there was an honour guard with a difference. Among the officers and swords there were friends with umbrellas. It's the little things that make every wedding unique.
After the family portraits outside the church it was off to Tisbury for the reception. We hadn't been to Lower Lawn Barn before but it is a beautiful place. A courtyard surrounded by old outbuildings. It reminded me of Provence in France. Delightful.
The car got plenty of attention with many of the guests jumping in for a selfie and making "Vrooom vroom" noises as they pretended to drive the local lanes.
The cake was made by a friend. It looked absolutely gorgeous. The newlyweds cut it in military fashion with a ceremonial sword. Once complete it was time for speeches. We were well looked after with some delicious food unfortunately James was caught out shooting some B-roll and arrived to eat just as the first dance was announced.
Fire pits were lit and the band played to get the party started. We like to get in the thick of it and with a small dancefloor it was very thick bvut that makes the images more energetic which I love.
Once the party was in full swing we slipped away into the night.
