Gina & Danny’s Glaston Rutland wedding was a big event for the village of Glaston this summer. On the day of the wedding the neighbours had lined the lanes and streets with bunting and even put up posters around the village. It helped create a wonderful celebratory atmosphere like a Royal street party, and showcased the community spirit of Glaston. The morning began with Gina getting ready at her family home in the village, just a stones throw from St Andrews church where the ceremony would be held. When Gina was ready, she walked with her father through the village, enjoying the sight of all the colourful bunting and neighbours sending well wishes over fences and hedges. The church was packed to standing room only and a joyful ceremony was held with uplifting hymns and readings. After the ceremony the congregation exited to the sunshine and village well-wishers, and we then made time for a few family group photos in the church yard. Before leaving the church, guests were lined up to shower the newlyweds in confetti as they made their way from St Andrews and back to the parents house as the wedding reception would be in their wonderful garden. Back at the house everyone enjoyed drinks and canapés and before guests took their seats for the wedding breakfast we gathered everyone together for a big group photo. While guests were taking their seats we took a stroll with Gina & Danny along the bunting lined lane by the house for a few quick portraits. We had planned to do the main photos of the two of them later on, when the light would hopefully be better. Everyone then enjoyed the wedding breakfast, which was then followed by a set of fantastic speeches. Afterwards I drove Gina and Danny to a spot a couple of miles away we had previously scouted which had brilliant views over the Welland valley and the Harringworth Viaduct. We had to jump the fence, and what had been a yellow stubble field on our recce the week previous, had been harrowed by the farmer to reveal the bare earth. We took in some portraits here and made the most of the landscape, before driving further on to under the Viaduct for a few more photos. We were treated to some dramatic light and it was a great location to shoot in. We then headed back to the party, and the garden was buzzing with guests enjoying the warm summer evening, before the DJ enticed people to the dance floor for the remainder of the evening.
