Having already tied the knot in Canada, surrounded by Krista’s family, Krista & Duncan came over to England to do the whole thing again so that Duncan’s family could also share their special day with them. I actually went to primary school with Duncan so it was a lovely surprise when he contacted me to tell me about the plans for their day.
‘Intimate’ is the word I would use to describe their ceremony because it really was one of the smallest wedding parties I have ever photographed and this made it all the more beautiful.
The Pear Tree at Purton couldn’t have been a more perfect venue for them and their 19 guests. This Hotel offers the choice of getting married outside surrounded by a beautiful garden which includes a wild flower meadow and it’s very own vineyard.
The Pear Tree is a small, elegant venue with only 17 en-suite guest rooms so if you are looking to do things on a smaller scale, this could be a great venue choice for you. You can find out more about booking their John Veysey Suite, which seats up to 30 people, HERE.
What Duncan didn’t know was that he was to arrive at the ceremony in a vintage fire engine, (he is a fire fighter back in Canada) which kinda stole the show, until of course, Krista stepped out in her gorgeous pale blue wedding dress!
Due to the weather that day, Krista & Duncan made the choice last minute to hold the ceremony outside as opposed to having it in the conservatory, which made me a very happy wedding photographer indeed! Although the sun wasn’t shining, it stayed dry long enough for everyone to be seated at the end of the garden where they could watch Krista make her way up the (very) long path to her groom Duncan and say they vows to each other.
The day was just beautiful and I’m so happy I was there to capture it all!
