Tom & Amy’s Gorgeous Summer Wedding in Ockley, Surrey

The 22nd August 2014 was a scorcher from the start, a beautiful day for a summer wedding in Ockley, Surrey. Unfortunately Nick had to ‘work’ until the early evening so I welcomed another second shooter for Tom & Amy’s big day, Stephen Duncan. I went to meet Amy and her bridal party at Gatton Manor (where the later reception would also be held) and Stephen went to hang out with the guys and capture them getting ready and doing their manly thang!

Amy organises events as part of her role at Virgin Atlantic and it was clear that she had been super organised ahead of the day. The girls had a lovely selection of nibbles, soft drinks and champagne to enjoy whilst getting ready and a special playlist gave us great background music, they had a real party atmosphere going on!

The girls helped each other with hair and make-up and before we knew it, the time had come for Amy to put her beautiful wedding dress on and get over to the church.

At the church, Tom waited nervously with his best man for Amy to arrive and the look on his face as she walked down the aisle was worth every minute of pre-wedding nerve!

The ceremony took place at St John the Baptist Church in Okewood Hill and perfectly represents a quintessential English countryside church, it’s so quaint and pretty!

After some pictures outside the church we headed back to Gatton Manor where the wedding party were treated to a drinks reception and canapes before sitting down to an intimate lunch. Amy and Tom had really thought out every detail and all the little extras really added a personal touch to proceedings.

With food consumed, speeches made and Nick now in situ, we said goodbye to Stephen and grabbed the new Mr & Mrs for some sunset pictures. We had scouted out a nice location on the way into the Manor, so we stuck Amy & Tom on a golf buggy and met them there.

We got some lovely photos of the newlyweds and made our way over to the secret garden for a few more. We finished up at the lake after having mislaid Tom briefly…

Back into the reception and evening guests were now arriving. They cut their cake and danced their first dance before drinks flowed and moves were busted. They had a brilliant DJ that played tune after tune and kept the dance-floor busy all night.
