The Pointer pub – Gabrielle & Steven

Pointer pub in Brill

Reportage wedding photography at The Pointer

Gabrielle and Steven’s September wedding begins and ends at The Pointer pub in Brill. In the morning in the gloom but by the afternoon – to coincide with the drinks reception, sunshine and blue skies. Actually to be more accurate, the wedding coverage begins across the street from The Pointer , in the guest rooms that the pub owns, in a tastefully refurbished red brick cottage. Here Gabrielle got ready with family and bridesmaids.

A short drive away, in the village of Quainton – another village with a windmill, Steven was already at the church. The village where he grew up. The Holy Cross and St Mary church (note to other wedding photographers, this is a church with a friendly vicar and church warden, who aren’t anti-photography!! But actually looked to help – pretty rare). The vicar had even driven up from Sussex that morning too.

Gabrielle was escorted down the aisle by her father and stepfather. Steven needed the handkerchief. Their marriage pronounced – out and around the church, as family and friends prepared for the confetti.

Wedding reception in The Pointer pub garden

A drive back to Brill and drinks/canapes in the pub garden – as the sun made an appearance. The weather meant that speeches could take place outside (always the best option if the weather lets you!). As the party would be split between two rooms for the meal, it was the best option for everyone to listen to the speeches. The pub is pretty but not that big. In fact the dance area is one of the smallest you’ll see. It was even warm enough for people to head back into the garden, after the meal, for drinks at sundown.

Gabrielle and Steven jumped in my car, for the short trip across the village to Brill windmill. Not quite the sunset it could have been, by now the clouds were building back up. But a quick portrait and then back to the pub for the dancing…

Here are few images from the day…
