The Crows Nest | Charlotte + Michael

The Crows Nest at Barton Marina was the setting for a truly fabulous day as Charlotte + Michael brought their friends and family together for their wedding. Blessed with wonderful weather, the perfect relaxed day unfolded into the most idyllic of weddings. Thank you for inviting me to share your day Charlie + Mike - I had a blast with you all!

Beautiful Summer Wedding at The Crows Nest | Wedding Photographs at The Waterfront Barton Marina

When Charlotte first got in touch back in March last year, she said, “we have been looking around for a photographer and many people have mentioned your name as one of the best around”. I do love couples coming to me from a personal recommendation!

At the time it didn’t click, and little did I realise at that point, I’d photographed her brother as best man the previous year!! 

When I sat down with Charlie and Mike to talk about the plans for their day, I couldn’t wait to photograph their day at The Crows Nest, Barton Marina. I’ve enjoyed using the fabulous setting of Barton Marina many times over the years, but Charlie and Mike’s wedding was to be the first wedding I’d captured there…and what a fabulous day it was!

My day started capturing the preparations of Charlie and the girls at the Edge family home, being well and truly looked after by Charlie’s dad Martin on both coffee and bacon sandwich duty! How to get the photographer on side ;-) 

Here’s a look at their day…

From time relaxing, it was soon time for the big moment…the dress! And what a dress it was! 
Charlie visited The White Rose and The Perfect Fit for her stunning gown and her bridesmaids gowns.
