A Stunning Military Wedding with a relaxed country vibe. – Images by Hayley Ruth Photography

Today I am thrilled to share the beautiful Military Wedding of  Richard and Amy at the stunning Bolton Abbey, followed by their reception at Ilkley Golf Course.

Images of the day were captured by Hayley Ruth Photography.

Hayley Ruth Photography is a  forward thinking and contemporary wedding photography business established as a full time business in 2008 and based in Saffron Walden.

Combining her love of photography and the magic of weddings her aim with every click of the shutter is to give clients utterly gorgeous images to treasure.

From a young age Hayley loved photographs, and is a  keeper of 6 generations of family photographs.

She never tires of looking at them, marveling at that single moment captured in time.

Whilst she is totally comfortable behind the camera, she is not so fond of  having her own picture taken which means she knows how nervous most people are.

This insight helps her put clients at ease and make any session fun.

Hayley says of the day, “The Couple are both serving Army Officers and their wedding was planned whilst they both served overseas in Afghanistan.”

“Family and friends played a huge part in helping them pull their Special Day together.”

“A relaxed country vibe was the theme of the day with some little vintage details and styling along the way.”

The Bride’s sister made all the bunting in the marquee, all 70m’s of it.

Amy’s Dress was Jenny Packham as was her head dress,  and Richard wore his number one dress uniform and his Mess dress for the reception.

“For the wedding portraits it was decided to keep it relaxed despite the formality of the uniform but it was important to capture the grandeur of the wedding setting including the ruins of the Abbey.”
