Farm Marquee Wedding Photos of Bridal Preparations
We began this day of farm marquee wedding photos day at Georgie’s parents’ house with her six bridesmaids. We love shooting rural farming wedding photographs. They are always so very warm and friendly affairs in stunning countryside locations. Today was no different.
The weather was a little different to our last countryside wedding photographs. All the ladies were in good spirits despite the wet weather outside. While they had hair and make up styled the mother of the bride was busy making the bouquets. The bridesmaids wore deep red dresses with white and green bouquets.
Georgie was helped into her classic wedding dress with veil. Her deep red rose bouquet had hints of green and white. She looked absolutely stunning. Tears welled as she saw her father for the first time on this morning.
With everyone ready they headed outside and armed with translucent umbrellas. They made their way to the unusual wedding transport of shooting trailer and tractor.
