The past week has been pretty miserable weather-wise, grey and cold, so we thought it was time to spread some sunshine and look back at Jess and Chris’ gloriously sunny South Farm wedding photography from last summer. This was also the first opportunity we had to visit the South Farm reservoir during a wedding, and we took our lovely couple off to the water in the setting sun. We also love the splash of coral in this wedding! Here’s a selection of images from the day and you’ll find the credits at the end…

The bags had a photo of each person and Jess on it and their name – such a thoughtful idea!

Jess & Chris had wanted their lovely dog Teddy to come to the wedding but it was decided it wasn’t a good idea,  so they used a picture of him on their Save the Date cards. He was able to star in their pre wedding shoot though which you can see here!
