Waking up to a beautiful sunny day was a perfect start as todays wedding was to be held outdoors. The venue was The Thatched Barn in Dover and our bride and groom had planned a relaxed, bohemian styled wedding. Although the venue doesn't have a marriage license, a little thing like this wasn't going to stop Salome, who decided her dad would hold a blessing ceremony with their legal vows taking place in a registry office. That was just the paperwork, today was all about the wedding! And what a beautiful wedding is was!
We did cover some bridal hair and make-up shots at Salome's parent house, before we headed off to the venue. We knew about a surprise that she has planned for fireman Craig, by arranging to arrive in an old Green Goddess Fire Truck. During the ceremony, Salome's dad and sister Beth played music and sang whilst her dad then took the reins for the rest of the ceremony by acting as the registrar. It was heartfelt, meaningful and very different to a usual ceremony.
The barn was decorated to a music theme and looked amazing! Fresh flowers everywhere, including Salome's hair which was something she always said she would do and Craig wore a bow-tie and braces, the best kind of groom wedding attire for sure! The naked cake was hand-made by Craig, there was a band instead of the usual DJ and their wedding portraits shots were taken in a long grass field with Salome wearing no shoes. Completely sums up the day, naturally beautiful!
