Aly and Chris’ amazing vineyard wedding
‘What can we say, your photos are simply incredible better than we could have imagined. But more importantly, it was a pleasure to share our day with you. Thank you so much!’
Aly and Chris got married last summer at the beautiful Three Choirs Vineyard, which is a stunning venue in Wickham. They had their ceremony and reception on the grounds of the venue, which was great having everything all in one place. They chose Three Choirs Vineyard because it’s near their home, being small and intimate it’s exactly what they wanted. There are endless opportunities for wedding photography at Three Choirs Vineyard it’s a fantastic wedding venue.
Aly and her mum got ready at her father in laws house with all of her bridesmaids, and the atmosphere was full of excitement with Chester, Adrian’s dog stealing the show. The wedding party then took the short trip to the ceremony. Chris got ready at his house with his groomsmen.
The serious part
The wedding itself was an outside affair with a gazebo right in the middle of the vineyard. During the ceremony, a few wasps tried to interrupt the proceedings which raised a few nervous smiles! I loved the handwritten notes by Aly’s school pupils on the back of the chairs, it was a really nice personal touch.
After the ceremony
The reception was in the beautiful Old Winery and drinks reception in the afternoon, plus a DJ in the evening. I really liked all of the little extras including the custom-made cork table plan for the guests which suited the location. They decorated the venue with flowers and so much colour because they love the outdoors. with bunting hung around the venue and lots of photographs draped around the courtyard. For dinner, Wild Gastro served up a slap up meal, which was loved by all the guests. including me!
Aly wore a Proposals dress and Chris was kitted out in a suit from Astares and they both looked incredible. Chris’ suit complimented the green vineyard perfectly and Aly’s’s flowers were from a local Fruit and Veg shop!
Aly and Chris met way back when and have been together for quite a while now. When they got in touch with me I immediately knew we’d be a good fit their enquiry was really touching. They said they wanted a relaxed photographer, and I loved that – they just really wanted me there.
The couple says that if you’re planning your wedding, the biggest piece of advice they could give you is to make decisions based on what YOU want and not others. It’s your day, not anyone else’s. That way you won’t have any regrets. Try not to take too long when making decisions. Go with your first instinct and don’t vacillate on them.
