Love My Dress, A Juliet Cap Veil and Raimon Bundo Gown For An Elegant English Country Barn Wedding

Hello there! We’ve another little Saturday treat for you today, because it’s the weekend – and who needs a better excuse than that?  Wedding Photographer Sam and husband Phil’s wedding took place on 12th August, 2013 at Arlington Baptist Chapel in Bibury, followed by a reception at the Stone Barn near Upper Windrush – both venues located in the stunning Cotswolds.

“As a wedding photographer I have been to many, many weddings, and this definitely helped me realise more what I didn’t want rather than what I did want my wedding day to be.

I also had a real yearning for a Juliet cap veil (ever since watching the film Ballet Shoes when the character played by Emilia Fox wore one).  I researched extensively to get the ‘right’ one. I had come across Rebekah at Visionary Veils, and, unbeknown to me, Emma at Love Bridal had found her too and got samples.

“Phil and I met on a Christian dating agency website. We got engaged at the end of April this year and married just over three months later.  We had been talking about getting married for a while, there wasn’t an actual proposal – I had seen a ring I liked in a jewellers in York and Phil suggested I try it on. I knew he had ordered it, but he surprised me with it when I arrived at his house one weekend with flowers, champagne and down on one knee.

We didn’t actually live together before we were married, I was in Lancashire and Phil in Yorkshire. Neither of us were particularly sentimental about where we were married as long as it was in church and as the church I belong to meets in a university lecture theatre we would have had to find a church to be married in anyway.”
