Final Gildings Barn Wedding of the Year!

This weekend saw me visiting the wonderful Gildings Barn for the last time this year for a wedding ceremony.

I have seen some amazing celebrations here over the past few seasons and this one was another corker of a day.  My couple were just the loveliest people, and they had an army of supporters with them to witness them joining together in a very personal ceremony.

We had spent many months honing the wording, and after meeting a few times at the barn for open days, and running through things, they chose the wonderful Oak tree in the grounds of the barn as the focal point for the start of their special day.

With guests seated in gentle arcs, facing the tree, we had a truly wonderful ceremony, with three readings, and a whole section dedicated to their friends and family, and lots of wonderful details were shared.

There were emotional tears, lots of laughter and two very happy people that walked back up the aisle at the end of their ceremony. 

It was an incredible day and I wish the new Mr & Mrs Sparkes all the love and luck for their future together!
