Wedding Photography: The Plough, Eaton – Stephanie and Daniel

We were back at The Plough Inn in Eaton to photograph the beautiful rustic wedding of Stephanie and Daniel. As usual, Tina was with Stephanie, the Bride, ahead of the ceremony while Simon was at The Plough Inn with Daniel, the Bridegroom along with his Groomsmen. The historic barn with it’s oak beams was beautifully laid out ahead of the ceremony with a stunning sunflower theme.

The lovely wedding ceremony was complimented by the ‘handfasting’ or ribbon ceremony where the happy couple “tied the knot” in yellow ribbon during the service.

After the confetti and group shots was the wedding breakfast back in the barn. Once this was completed we headed out to do the couple photos around the Plough and also at the nearby park. It was then back to the Plough for the cutting of the cake and the first dance.
