Kate is a horsey girl who rides a gorgeous chestnut at the Umdloti stables. Any wedding involving people who understand my love of horses gets me excited, but when the said wedding happens to happen at Hartford House you will find me even more eager. I absolutely love shooting at this venue and the farm was looking particularly magnificent on Kate and Mark’s big day with all the orange leaves infused with autumn light. It’s not often that a bride in heels is keen as nails to jump a farm gate and walk through the mud but Kate is an equestrian and I think she had as much fun with the horses as I did!
There was only one little lady who stole a wee bit of Kate’s thunder on her wedding day and that was Riley the flower girl! I don’t think Kate minded a bit though and it was plain to see that Mark was so proud of his new wife and three kids.
Thanks so much for choosing me to photograph your special day. Wishing you so much love and luck on your new journey together as husband and wife.
