Most people agree, there is nothing more beautiful than the English countryside in spring – this was certainly the case for Melissa and Sam’s romantic rustic wedding in the Southend Barns.
Taking place on the 28th April, it was a warm sunny day as Melissa walked down the aisle, wearing an elegant lace detail gown. Accompanied by her four bridesmaids and flower girl, in pretty peppermint dresses, there was a touch of nature throughout the day.
After a lovely ceremony, filled with smiles and laughter, we captured a mix of family and intimate couple shots in the grounds of the venue before everyone joined together in the courtyard for the wedding breakfast.
Here the wedding party enjoyed Sam and his groomsmen’s entertaining speeches and watched as he and Melissa cut their delicious bare-naked cake.
The day was completed with newlyweds first dance as man and wife and some special sunset shots.
