Karoliina & Dan’s Wedding at Curradine Barns July 2016
What a beautiful location for a wedding at Curradine Barns. The wedding ceremony took place at St Marys Church Shrawley and it was then a short walk to the Barns. It’s not often you see a wedding party on mass walking along a country road after the ceremony but it was a lovely sight to be seen with the odd car having to wait until the road was clear again! I was fortunate to be able to meet Karoliina and Dan before the day for a pre wedding shoot in Worcester, and I think it really helped on the day in that we were all familiar and comfortable with each others company.
Karoliina was happy for me to take some getting ready shots and I always make sure I don’t get in the way and take natural photos. I do enjoy doing photos at this stage of the day but do appreciate some brides would rather not have a photographer there, but they do make lovely photos!
Dan and his bestman / usher turned up in good time and it was off for my first walk to the church. I’d checked out the venue before the day and timed the walk to be 5 minutes! I needed to make sure there was enough time to get back to the Barns to see Karoliina walk down too… this job certainly keeps me fit!
And back up to the Curradine Barns and time for the ladies to walk down to the church with a spring in their step and full of smiles.
It was a lovely church service with a balcony to get some great shots from above.
And a procession of people back upto the Curradine Barns!
And so we moved on the the Wedding Breakfast with speeches in both English and Finnish , and Karoliina and Dan dancing the night away with some very skilful moves! One of the traditions it seems for weddings in Finland is to give the groom certain challenges to do and literally hats off to Dan for amongst other things performing a brilliant Michael Jackson Moon Walk!
A thoroughly enjoyable wedding to photograph and I was made very welcome on the day. Very best wishes to Dan and Karoliina!
