Anna and Mark got married at St Peters Church in Kinver before heading to their wedding reception at Deer Park Hall on the Worcestershire/Gloucestershire border.
The day was fantastic, and the weather could not be better, a warm summer's day, bright and overcast - the perfect conditions for wedding photography.
The drive between the church and Deer Park took the best part of an hour, and on the drive, a couple of guests got lost and some decided to check in to their hotels on the way to the wedding reception, meaning we had to postpone the taking of the formal wedding photos until everyone arrived.
This left an unusually large amount of time for the bride and groom to relax and enjoy themselves at their reception venue.
We had taken some casual photos of the couple enjoy themselves, in some of my favourite locations around Deer Park, but one of the best images came from a purely natural moment. Anna and Mark were walking joyfully across Lambs Leap Lawn, making their way towards the edge of the venue's ground where you have an unspoiled view across the county towards the Malvern Hills in the distance. One of the things I love the most about this photo is just how relaxed the bride and groom both appear, with Anna holding her bridal bouquet right by the end of the stem, swinging them as she walks without a care in the world.
