We have been looking forward to photographing Louise and Gary’s Summer Crabbs Barn Wedding for some time, having known Gary for quite a few years. It was nice to play an important part on his Wedding Day. It was a beautiful day and Crabbs Barn provided a lovely setting for their Wedding. After double checking timings etc, we made our way around to the Bridal Suite to see Louise. Louise had partially got ready at her Parents’ home, leaving the final preparations to do at Crabbs Barn.  Everything was running smoothly, so we got on with taking pictures of Louise’s Wedding Dress and accessories whilst Louise’s hair and make-up was completed. Meanwhile, Gary had arrived with his Best Men and Ushers and before they got on with their jobs, they had a few pictures taken before too many of the Guests arrived. Once Louise’s Bridesmaids and Mother were ready, they assisted Louise with getting dressed. Louise looked amazing in her dress. When Louise’s Dad came into the room to see her it was a lovely moment. There was time for all of them to exchange cards and presents before it was time to move on.
