There are so many moments from this incredible surprise wedding day that brought all the emotions flooding in – from the excitement of getting ready, to the misty eyes as they had their first look, to the surprise on their guests faces as they watched Tessa and her dad walk down that aisle, and into party mode as they enjoyed the reception with family and friends.

Having only been together for a short time, the love and laughter between these 2 was so deep and amazing to witness! What a journey this dynamic duo have shared already. We first met via Skype during the Covid lockdown and I knew instantly that this pair would be a blast to work with! We finally got to meet in person just a month out from their wedding date to discuss all of the special details they had planned for their secret wedding. Only their parents were aware of what they had in store – everyone else had been invited to their “Engagement Party” – haha so sneeky!

The big day was such a whirlwind and it felt so special to document their happiness and affection for eachother. Their day ran a little different to the expected “norm” which was refreshing. We stared with a first look as Tyson got to see his bride for the first time, we then did their bridal portraits before the ceremony, then guests arrived for their night time barn wedding complete with gorgeous sparkler exit, and then their guests could conveniently go straight onto the reception and enjoy the festivities.

Congratulations to Tyson and Tessa! Thank you both so much for inviting me to capture so many wonderful moments for you on your wedding day!
