There’s something special about December weddings. Excitement is in the air and everyone is in the festive spirit, so Ellie and Nick picked the perfect time to get married. As Ellie didn’t fancy documenting the bridal prep, (it’s not compulsory!) I headed straight to St Mary’s Church in Maddington, Shrewton. The church was built in the late 12th century and is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II listed building. The church has been redundant since December 1975, and has been in the care of the Churches Conservation Trust ever since. Situated next to her childhood home, Ellie had always dreamed of getting married there, so the couple went through a lot of trouble to get a licence to do so.

“Nicolas and I just wanted to say a massive thank you for doing our wedding photos. They are absolutely incredible! ”


It was a foggy winter’s morning and guests started to arrive which was a great opportunity to get some candid shots before the beautiful bride arrived in her amazing pure white dress. Ellie’s stepdad Nic walked her up to the church, and her father walked her down the aisle. The ceremony was super and enjoyed by every guest, including Nic’s grandad, who was one of the writers of sit-com On The Buses. After a confetti throw, a big red bus arrived to transport the guests to the reception, a touch thoroughly enjoyed by Nic’s grandad and the rest of the guests.

When Ellie and Nic arrived at Beechfield House, we managed a few romantic shots before the guests arrived on the red bus. We then headed into the warm for the group shots followed by the wedding breakfast. After everyone had eaten the delicious food, it was time for the speeches by Ellie’s dad, stepdad, the best man and Nic. There was even an appearance from Felicity Wishes, Ellie’s favourite book series as a child, in the form of some handmade knickers.
After the cheese wedding cake was cut, the newlyweds took to the dancefloor for their first dance and the party started. The night ended with sparklers and an amazing surprise firework show which was enjoyed by everyone.

“You managed to capture everything – you are Super Woman! From start to finish it’s been an absolute delight to work with you and we are over the moon that you were able to share our special day!”
