We first met Amy and Ryan in Greece when we photographed one of their friend’s weddings in 2016. They must have loved our style because they booked us as soon as they had their plans in place.

They chose the Ellingham Hall as their venue and with the sun shining, they were lucky enough to have their ceremony outside on such a beautiful day.

We’d had a pre wedding shoot together a month earlier, so these guys were already pros in front of the camera and we couldn’t wait to photograph them both again…

We started off the day capturing Ryan getting ready. Wearing his military uniform, we spend a bit of extra time capturing all the details.
It was nice and relaxed with the girls when we headed over. They were busy having their hair and makeup finished.
Once everyone was into their dresses, we headed downstairs to take a few photographs of Ryan.
Ryan looked very dashing in his uniform and the backdrop of the field just made for such a great shot.
The outdoor ceremony is every couple's dream and Ellingham is just the perfect setting for such an occasion.
It was an emotional ceremony, with both Amy and Ryan tearful throughout.
After the ceremony, we took a few family photographs before leaving guests to mingle and enjoy the music and the weather.
As you can see it was a very chilled day and we took the opportunity to capture some couple portraits before heading inside for speeches.
There were some fantastic speeches, including an incredible effort by Ryan who prepared a speech in Swedish for his best man and family.
The early evening saw the characturist arrive to create some amazing artwork of our guests.
The day wasn't done though as the bride and groom took to the dancefloor for the first dance before guests joined them to celebrate the occasion in style.
