Another older wedding I am catching up on posting to my website. This one is from Lois and Dan’s wedding St Luke Church in Kislingbury, Northamptonshire and then for the wedding reception at the Village Institute in Upper Harlestone, Northamptonshire back in 2014.
What was lovely about being the wedding photographer for Lois and Dan, is that I lived next door to Lois’ mum Fiona and auntie Ginny for a few years when I was about 5 or 6 years old. I then reconnected with Ginny about 40 years later via Facebook who then recommended me to Lois and Dan. A year after their wedding, I also went on to shoot Lois’ brother Phil’s wedding to Emily in 2015. It was so lovely to carry on such a connection with the family after all this time.
Whilst I documented Lois getting ready at home in Kislingbury, my second photographer was with Dan whilst he got ready at a hotel in the nearby village of Harpole, also in Northamptonshire.
It was a beautiful September day and the church of St Luke in Kislingbury is an absolutely stunning location for a traditional English village church wedding. The reception was held at the equally gorgeous Village Institute in nearby Harlestone – itself a listed art deco building which had so much charm and character. There were traditional garden games for the children, a bar in a retro VW camper van and some great evening entertainment by a young fold band in the evening.
So it was a lovely wedding all round and quite special for me personally given the connections. I hope you like the small number of selected photos from their St Luke and Village Institute wedding in Harlestone, Northamptonshire.
