Wedding of Clare & Sean, The Olde Bell, Hurley

Just as the pre-Xmas snow fell in earnest, onto my calendar came three of my December weddings on 19th, 20th and 23rd December. All were shot in deep snow, which is a real rarity for me with my stupidly good luck (most of the time) with the weddings I shoot. The wedding of Clare & Sean was set in the old beautiful village of Hurley just past Henley on Thames at a lovely venue I had driven past many times but never photographed The Olde Belle. The Olde Bell is a wonderful setting for an English country wedding. In the grounds of the Olde Bell are the historic Tithe Barn & The Malt House. It was nearly “the preparations that were almost not photographed” as my trusty Volvo snaked it’s way up the steep hill to the house that Clare was getting ready in. Many cars were abandoned in the streets and it turned out the wedding cars that had been booked could not make it up the hill so the 4WD’s were called in to get Clare safely to the Tithe Barn on time. Despite the cold Clare & Sean were fantastic and happy to pose in the grounds for some lovely images in the snow. Their children played a starring role with their youngest daughter even doing a reading on her own in the ceremony. A perfect winter wedding complete with fresh snow!
