Matt & Claire’s Quirky, Unique and Fun Wedding with Handfasting

Matt & Claire had a wonderfully quirky, unique and fun wedding.  I had the pleasure of capturing their amazing two part wedding in England in both July and September.  The July gig was the legal ceremony in Nottingham and then the ‘hand-fasting’ ceremony was in the superb Puzzlewood (Forest of Dean).

July’s legal ceremony was celebrated by Matt & Claire’s close family in The Walton Hotel followed by a superb meal in Harts Hotel.

Then in September, Matt & Claire’s friends celebrated with them in a ‘handfasting’ ceremony in the middle of Puzzlewood followed by an amazing reception in a barn which they completely revamped for the ‘big day’! Their guests (of which I was happy to become one) were treated to paella, salad, wine and locally brewed beer and somerset cider 🙂 !

Both of Matt & Claire’s ceremonies were a pleasure to capture.  They are so relaxed with each other that so many moments were created and captured.

Thank you so much for letting me part of this!
