Rural and Yurt Weddings
Jenny and Alex’s rural and yurt wedding in Herefordshire
I first met Jenny and Alex at a Burgoyne’s wedding show. They were planning to have a very rural theme to their wedding. They wanted their day to be relaxed and above all fun! After viewing my albums they could see I was the photographer for them.
One year on, I turned up at Jenny’s parent’s house, in Hay on Wye. It was a beautiful warm July morning with bright blue skies. Jenny was busy having her hair and makeup done. The girls were rushing around upstairs getting ready. Mum and family were sat on a bench in the garden enjoying the sunshine and sipping cups of tea. Once ready they all set off on foot to the Church just around the corner. From the way everyone was dressed, not only did this wedding have a rural theme but a vintage one too.
Rowing down the river! / Rural and yurt weddings
Once the ceremony was over, it was off to the river, the very beautiful river Wye. On a cracking summers day like this, it looked all the more glorious. Jenny and Alex had arranged a rowing boat trip to the reception. Once aboard they set off to the bridge at Hay. Guests waited patiently and cheered wildly as the newlywed couple arrived. Champagne was corked and glasses filled all around.
Fully refreshed we leapt into the best man’s very classy vintage Mercedes and headed up to the reception in a Yurt on top of the hill. Castle yurts had done a magnificent job. The location was perfect and everything had been decorated accordingly.
Speeches were held with lots of joking around, laughter and free-flowing booze. Everything about this wedding was colourful, fun, and quirky. There were no shrinking violets here!
Come the evening the band arrived in their ageing blue tour van with graffiti down the side. ‘Duncan disorderly and the scallywags’ What a great name! Somehow I knew we were in for a great night.
