Natural Wedding Photography

Natural wedding photographs of a rustic and bohemian relaxed wedding

The rustic, bohemian and elegant wedding of Emma and Nathan was so fun, relaxed laid back and was a perfect fit for my style of wedding photography: natural wedding photography.

All of the guests had a wonderful afternoon together in the sun – they played lawn games with each other and had a laugh, before they headed into the most beautifully styled room for the wedding reception.

The wedding reception room was stunning, with amazing attention to detail. I would describe it as incorporating elements of a rustic, elegant and bohemian wedding styling. These two went to incredible effort to decorate their wedding reception room with such style and it really paid off!

Emma’s dress was so elegant and the flowers were simply gorgeous, with unique feather elements.

This is, in my opinion, the best way to spend your wedding – simply enjoying the day and spending it with your guests. I was able to take natural images of exactly what happened on the day, without intervening for most of it. We did however get some quick portraits around sunset as we had some glorious light to work with.

This wedding is proof that you don’t need to spend hours doing wedding portraits; we actually got many photos of the two of them together even though we didn’t spend much time at all doing bride and groom portraits. It’s the key approach to natural wedding photography – mostly documentary style photos with only a handful of portraits. It’s nice to have a small breather away from your guests (just for a bit of alone time), but it’s also nice to be with your guests for the majority of the day!

Here is a selection of images from their day. They wanted shorter, bespoke coverage, so I was with them from the start of the ceremony until just after the speeches ended. This gave them natural photos of the most important parts of their day!
