Larmer Tree Gardens Wedding Photographer
Levi and Trevor’s Larmer Tree Gardens wedding was spectacular. I was a little worried about their plans for an outdoor humanist ceremony. Lets face it, June has been a poor month for weather so far! With drizzle in the morning the skies only cleared when Levi arrived for the wedding ceremony. I don’t describe many wedding venues as being enigmatic but Larmer Tree Gardens really has something special about it. I can’t quite put my finger on it. Maybe it’s the amazing architecture, the beautiful surrounding country or maybe the peacocks. It’s really a peaceful, carefree and a happy place to be. Being a Larmer Tree Gardens wedding photographer is a dream job.
I was so happy to be able to capture the story of their wedding day. There was so much emotion and their friends from London were a really fun crowd. Levi wore the most beautiful custom made dress from Jo Irvine Designs. And, if you’re curious, Trevor’s suit was from Primani! They collected wild flowers from a market in London and arranged them themselves on the day. As well as baking ginger bread people and decorating them for the favours.
The Wedding Day
Levi was so fun to be around, she literally didn’t stop smiling all day. Even during the rain in the morning she wore a smile and didn’t let the gloomy looking clouds spoil her mood. Trevor offered to carry my heavy camera bag on several occasions and even offered me a celebratory whiskey in the morning (which I declined!) It was quite the international turnout for the wedding with friends and family coming from all over the world and Trevor’s family from South Africa. Lots of their friends and family baked and bought wedding cakes for a competition which was a nice personal touch. As well as tasting pretty amazing with an afternoon tea.
One of my favourite anecdotes from Trevor was that he showed all of his friends the wedding photos. A lot of them asked ‘dude, why are you holding umbrellas before the ceremony, it’s sunny?’ Ah… the magic of photography! Truth was that it was raining a little and it was pretty touch and go as to whether they could have an outdoor wedding ceremony at Larmer Tree. Larmer Tree has it’s own little micro climate and it’s tricky to predict what will happen for the beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony.
A huge thank you for having me along and making me feel so welcome – I wish you as much fun and happiness for the future as I saw on your wedding day.
