I thee wed – Sarah & Matt

After following Sarah & Matt’s journey so far with their oh so chic pre-wedding shoot styled by the fabulous Michele Gledhill that we featured in issue 14 we are now thrilled to be able to hand you over to their photographer Rachael Connerton to tell you all about Sarah & Matt’s big day!

‘After a pre-wedding shoot combining a gorgeous old book shop with styled theming from the incredibly talented Michele Gledhill, we knew that Sarah and Matt’s big day was going to be something a little bit special. Michele and I met with Sarah to discuss ideas at an early stage – this was one incredibly creative bride and her ideas and inspiration were right up my street.

I entered Kilworth House on the morning of the wedding to be greeted by an absolutely exquisite dress hanging on the wardrobe (courtesy of ‘The Little White Dress’) and a serenely beautiful bride having the finishing touches applied. It was a picture of perfect wedding morning preparation.

Back at home Ian had met with ‘the boys’ and had an absolute whale of a time capturing Matt opening Sarah’s present (the brilliant idea of a different ‘date night’ for each month of the year!)

The frivolity definitely continued with Sarah on their journey to church – the pale green campervan conjured up a perfect ‘school trip’ feel and there was lots of giggling when they all arrived which even the bit of drizzle couldn’t dampen. The ceremony, completely heartfelt, also had the same lovely relaxed, happy feel to win with lots of laughter from guests and bride and groom.

As soon as we all reached Kilworth House, the happy party atmosphere really kicked in. We were over the moon to be able to spend a few minutes outside with Sarah and Matt, the fabulous campervan and THAT dress. What an absolute dream to shoot. Sarah and I both got very excited about seeing how Michele Gledhill had worked her magic in the Orangery and we were certainly not disappointed! Again, I couldn’t wait to start shooting while Ian was busy catching some lovely moments of guests enjoying themselves over a glass or two of bubbly.

The attention to detail with the styling and beautiful ideas were stunning and I had a complete field day with my camera.

To top off what was already an incredible day, Ian and I had so much fun downstairs in the Cellar Bar for the evening reception. After a beautiful first dance, everyone immediately piled onto the dance floor and the band then did a brilliant job of keeping them there!

We had so much fun with Sarah and Matt and there was more than a fair share of laughter all day – not only were they the perfect couple to work with, we now view them as good friends too!’
