The Dairy, Waddesdon wedding photography – Sash & Russ

I love photographing a wedding that is very different, (tick!) with vibrant colours, (tick!) amazing attention to detail everywhere, (tick!) a wow setting, (tick!) delicious food, (tick!) a wine-themed big day (big tick!) and a fun-loving couple (big tick again!)  I can’t fault the incredible wedding of Sash and Russ at The Dairy on the Waddesdon Estate.  They certainly threw every ounce of energy into making their day as magical as possible.

I knew from the moment I met them at The Dairy’s Wedding Inspiration Event that this couple knew how to throw an amazing party. They broke a few rules along the way, and why not! Like the two-hour drinks reception they hosted before the civil ceremony, and turning the reception venue into a fabulous rustic vineyard setting.  This was certainly going to be a wedding their guests would never forget.

I’ve been looking forward to photographing this wedding all year – sometimes you just get a vibe that this one is going to be special!  The wedding was a wonderful celebration of love and the couple’s passion for fine wines and a sensory delight for the eyes and taste buds.  Their family and friends certainly had a great time, and it was full on smiles, laughter and merriment from start to finish.

There were too many memorable moments on the day to even begin to list them, so I’ll let my pictures do the talking.

I must compliment Sash and Russ for their vineyard theme in the winter garden and the wine-themed table centres; these creations were something else.  Again I do hope my pictures do your florist’s and wedding planners’ masterpieces justice.

Enjoy your week,

Below are the kind words I received from Russ and Sash:

Dear Mark,

Thank you so much for doing such an amazing job of photographing our wedding!  It was such a pleasure for us.  We completely relaxed on the day, knowing that you had everything under control.  You were so professional every step of the way and were amazingly inconspicuous despite seemingly being everywhere throughout the day!

Looking through your photos, we are now reliving the day, but in so much more detail!  You have captured every beautiful element, including things that we missed seeing ourselves on the day.  You have also nailed our brief of capturing the emotion owith your amazing reportage style photos of all our friends and family.  Your lighting is just something else by the way!

Thanks again for enabling us to relive our amazing day for years to come.

Russ and Sash
