I can’t thank Chloe and Byron enough for choosing me to document their Old Greens Barn wedding. From the first minute Chloe and I Facetimed 12 months previous, I knew her wedding day with Byron would be a relaxed, chilled out day. What we didn’t know 12 months ago would be that Chloe would have just had another baby to join her beautiful daughter Nancy! Chloe, I am still in awe of how just days after your sons arrival, you absolutely rocked your wedding day.
The sun shone brightly from the start of the day with bridal prep at Box Hill Hotel in Dorking. Nancy stole the show just by being her, her eyes, that look, her curls, just gorgeous.
The ceremony took place in the Surrey village of Newdigate at the local church, St Peters. Byron and his groomsmen were enjoying the sunshine and looked great in their blue suits and the red ties really added a pop to the suits.
A family friend had provided his restored Hillman Imp to take Chloe from the hotel to the church, how cute is this car!
One of my favourite moments from the day, I love the emotion of father and daughter. Nancy looked so bashful, Byron, the loving father with arms open wide. Just perfect ♥
Little cheeky smiles during the ceremony before the wedding vows begin.
Is there anything more “wedding” than a confetti shot, no, I don’t think so! Look at the smiles, the love, the laughter – real emotions which you just can’t fake.
The wedding reception took place at Old Greens Barn, which has retained all it’s rustic charm and a blank canvas allowing you to dress to suit your wedding colours. Chloe chose whites and greens to accent her day. The table place settings were leaves and the wedding favours were small packets of sunflower seeds.
The white and green theme continued through to the wedding cake which was displayed on a chopped log, complimenting both the natural wedding flowers and the rustic feel of the barn.
Scrumptious canapaes were enjoyed by all, and if you scroll down you will see they also made for a great photo prop!
With the sun high in the sky and the little Hillman Imp having to leave us, we took 10 minutes for a few relaxed couples pictures.
I try to keep family and group pictures as relaxed as possible and a few fun ones with the bridal party.
Speeches took place before the ceremony allowing all the speakers to enjoy the wedding breakfast!
Chloe and Byron cut the cake after the speeches as this was being served with tea and coffees post meal. You can see where Nancy gets her cheeky nature from 🙂
Amazing wedding food served with mixed salads and mini roast potatoes – yum yum.
There were a lot of emotional moments throughout the day, so much love. The guests enjoyed the evening sun and made the most of the mini golf course which Chloe and Byron arranged at the barn.
And just happened to have a family friend who is an incredible magician.
5 minutes of evening pictures with Chloe wearing her hand painted personalised leather jacket – how cool is this?!
First dance love and fun finishing off Mr + Mrs Dewsburys perfect Old Greens Barn wedding day. Wishing you both much love and happiness for the future ♥
