Cath & Ryan

A very belated post but at the end of July I was lucky enough to photograph the wedding of Catherine Smith and Ryan O’Leary. I’d been looking forward to this wedding for over a year (significantly less time than Catherine had) and it did not disappoint.

The weather had been teasing with rain clouds all week but on the day we were treated to a gorgeous English summer day.

The venue, Oaks Farm in Shirley, Surrey, was lovely and it came to life with all of the personal touches Catherine and Ryan had meticulously planned.

Following the service, we did a couple shoot in the grounds of Oaks Farm. There are some delightful locations, my favourite being an old barn door. I’m told the owner was going to replace the door for something newer but decided not too as so many couples want the old door in their photos.

After a delightful meal and some great speeches the guests were treated to a wedding cake, a pork pie cake and a layered cake of cheese! Just the energy they needed for an evening of dancing the night away.
