Giffords Circus wedding photography – ‘We’re getting married in Bisley Church then the entire wedding party are heading to Giffords Circus for dinner in their travelling restaurant followed by a circus performance. Oh and then we’re having an after party back at our house..’ This was the moment that I knew Charlie and Ben’s wedding would be incredible…within about three seconds of meeting them.
I met Charlie on the morning of the big day in Bisley where preparations for the day were underway. Everyone was very excited and there were lots of people coming and going to help out. I mucked in whilst still shooting by opening the Prosecco for Charlie and giving Grandma a hand with the ribbon on her car. Essential jobs those. I had time before the ceremony to pop down the road to catch up with Ben who was looking his usual stylish self.
Charlie walked with her bridesmaids to the church before her mum and grandma walked her down the aisle to meet Ben. I am wondering if anyone will read past here? You’ve seen the flowers right? Charlie’s hair? Those shoes? Her handmade dress that Charlie designed herself?
I’ll write a little more, just in case anyone is still with me. The ceremony was lovely. Afterwards Charlie and Ben walked through a ribbon arch before they headed to the circus. Dinner was served in Circus Sauce – the travelling restaurant that accompanies Giffords Circus on their tour, run by the talented chef Ollie. There are lots of images below but in short it’s super cosy and beautifully styled. Charlie and Ben added their own touches and it looked amazing. There was plenty of time throughout the day for guests to relax and enjoy the surroundings before everyone received their tickets and we were led into the big top.
Now for a spoiler alert – if you haven’t seen the performance and want to keep it a surprise, don’t go any further. Charlie and Ben were brought into the ring twice, once when Tweedy ran off with my camera and once for a dance off! The day culminated in a sparkler aisle as Charlie and Ben arrived at the after party in Bisley and everyone was handed red noses before the dancing begun. A big thanks to Charlie and Ben for choosing me to photograph their big day and also to Giffords Circus who were so accommodating.
