Festival Wedding in Herefordshire

Festival Wedding Herefordshire


Grace & Sam had a fun Herefordshire wedding celebration back in September. They tied the knot in the local church, hidden away down a countryside lane. Then everyone celebrated back at the family house, festival style, where there was plenty of colourful bunting, garden games all afternoon, and a campfire to gather around as the sun went down, before heading into the marquee for the evening. Grace & Sam didn’t want a traditional wedding day – they wanted it to be relaxed, informal and fun, with plenty of personality, and that is exactly what they achieved! All their friends & family helped out to make this a really memorable and enjoyable wedding celebration – their day, their way.

Grace wore a tea-length wedding dress with a sequinned gold bolero, a flower crown, and her faithful boots. Her hair and makeup was by Le Glow Beautiful Brides, and the vibrant bouquets were by The Great British Florist.

Grace & Sam didn’t want the fuss of a traditional wedding photographer, so my natural documentary style of photography was perfect for them. I creatively documented their whole day without them being bothered by the camera, capturing the atmosphere and the fun of the day and everyone enjoying it all. When they saw their photographs they said: “Gemma thank you so much! These are fantastic – there are so many amazing pictures!”

So, here are a few favourites to tell the story of their fun Herefordshire wedding day! Thank you for having me there Grace & Sam – I really enjoyed it! x

Herefordshire Farm Marquee Wedding Photography



I have been looking forward to blogging Rachel & Alexander’s wedding since I photographed it in May! Their day was so perfect, held at the family’s Fruit Farm in the Herefordshire countryside, surrounded by apple blossom and sunshine. Rachel & Alexander put so much hard work into planning their wedding and making all their decorations, stationery, and so much more. I’m also really thrilled to say that Rachel & Alexander followed every word of advice in my various blog posts and publications, and their day ran absolutely like clockwork, with perfect timings for everything, plenty of time for couple photos and mingling, and no stress whatsoever! It just shows that taking guidance from someone who knows a lot about weddings is a really great idea! Thank you Rachel & Alexander for putting your trust in me.

Rachel’s hair was by Bridal Beauty and her make-up was by Anastasia. Stunning! The wedding ceremony was held at Little Marcle Church, with the boys travelling there in the ‘yellow peril’. It matched the yellow and grey colour scheme perfectly! Rachel & Alexander and their families did an amazing job decorating the Burgoynes marquee. There was miles of yellow & grey bunting, loads of flowers, and real grass table centre-pieces which Rachel & Alexander had grown themselves – amazing and unique! They had also made their own wooden rustic bar and were serving their own cider. The favours were chocolate Kiwis which had all (miraculously) been brought over by Rachel’s family from New Zealand. The meal was a special traditional pie (catering by AtoZest). After a sunset photo opportunity in the orchards, Rachel & Alexander did their first dance, and then the partying continued into the night!

Here’s what Rachel & Alexander wrote in their lovely thank you card that they made from one of their pictures:

“Dear Gemma, we cannot thank you enough for the amazing pictures you took during our perfect day. The service you have provided has been incredible from day one. All our family and friends also agree that you and the photos you took are amazing… we always knew they would be! We look forward to working with you again in the future. With love, Mr & Mrs S” xx

So, here are a few favourites from an amazing wedding day in the beautiful Herefordshire countryside…
