Charlie & Nat - St John's Churt, nr Farnham

I met Charlie while at University in Exeter and we quickly came to realise that we’d pretty much spent life up until that point narrowly avoiding one another. We’d gone to school’s that played sport against one another, had a number of mutual friends and generally been much closer than the average six degrees of separation, yet we’d never met. Charlie’s also a photographer and has shot a variety of great work including The Ride Across Britain, some fantastic equine photography and being an adventurous sort, all manner of expeditions and escapades.

I first met Nat when we all sat down together over dinner to discuss wedding photography. As a soon to be qualified doctor, Nat is clearly the brains of the outfit. That said, she also has a ridiculous appetite for adventure, Charlie and her met on a Raleigh International expedition to Borneo and then together they spent time in New Zealand climbing mountains and surfing waves. Basically, they’re a perfect pair.

I covered the full day for this one, from Nat’s getting ready at the lovely Collier’s Farm in Fernhurst, through the ceremony at St John’s Church in Churt and then back to Charlie’s parent’s house in Hindhead for a particularly memorable reception. I always like to make note of fantastic people I’ve run into in the course of my work and particular thanks must go to two people I met during this wedding. First off Tania Stephenson-Oliver of TSO Bridal Beauty who was wonderfully professional and lovely to work with. Tania’s one of those make-up artists who is not only great at the core elements of her job but also great at all the ancillary stuff like being a calming and reassuring presence throughout the morning. Basically she looked after Nat like a true pro.

Next up, my thanks to Rev. Tony Whitaker at St John’s. Tony was brilliantly inclusive from beginning to end, allowing Charlie & Nat to have their ceremony their way, all the while retaining the solemnity and reverence that’s appropriate for church weddings. From a photographer’s point of view Tony was fantastic, he trusted me to work in my own discrete manner and was helpful throughout.

Nat & Charlie really went to town with their wedding reception. The setting was perfect and everything looked so well considered and appropriate. When I saw Charlie a few days prior to the wedding he was calmly building the bar and assured me (despite the seeming evidence to the contrary) that everything would come together in good time. He was right of course. From welly wanging to bunting to fire pits and the evening noodle bar the whole wedding was a testament to Charlie & Nat’s can-do attitude. Basically it was awesome! It really could have been a multi-day event because there was almost too much good stuff to fit into a single day!

I’m going to shut up in a moment and let the pictures do the talking. Here’s a selection of my favourites including a few informal groups I shot on my new Polaroid 195 Land Camera. My thanks to Charlie & Nat for having me, it was a genuine pleasure to shoot for you and share your day. Cheers guys!
