“Thank you so much! These photos are excellent – you were amazing on the day so thank you for making it fun and enjoyable despite the weather. What a fantastic selection, it will be hard to whittle down for the album!” Maddie and Mark
Matara Wedding Photography – Mark & Maddie were married at Matara. A beautiful, flexible, relaxed wedding venue near Tetbury. First let’s talk about the elephant in the room…the rain. It came early and stayed most of the day but, most importantly, it added to the day, rather than take away from it. The ceremony was in the rain, the groups, portraits, tree planting and even the fireworks…all in some sort of drizzle. Maddie & Mark were truly amazing. The embraced it. Wellies appeared, as did a sea of brollies and smiles.
The girls’ morning was spent in the bridal suite at Matara while the chaps prepared for the celebrations across the road at Hunter’s Hall. It was a really fun morning. Lots of excited faces…especially when Jules of Wild & Co arrived with the flowers! After Mark was given a proper hug by his best man, Maddie (and her bridesmaids) made her way across the cobbles, brollies away for the moment…under the cloisters to meet Mark who was waiting in the ‘mostly’ dry! The outdoor wedding ceremony was beautiful. Raindrops falling on the pond, fairy lights and happiness and laughter throughout.
Mark & Maddie left their ceremony, straight into an umbrella confetti aisle with all their guests, after which everyone headed to help the couple plant and dedicate their tree in the Matara grounds. In the rain. With wellies…perfect! The groups were fun, also drizzly! Of course there was plenty of time for portraits with Mark & Maddie in the ground of Matara whilst the guests headed in for dinner. It really is the most beautiful space. Speeches followed before dinner and dancing. Mark & Maddie managed to persuade most of their guests to head back out once more for some unforgettable fireworks. It was a truly lovely day filled with happiness.
