Elly & John are such a fun, warm couple. This was our last wedding of the year and it ended on a high! Elly and John's Christmas wedding was held at Sherborne Castle.
We met Elly and the Bridesmaids in the morning at her parents house in the middle of the Dorset countryside. Elly wore a beautiful berry red dress, which had a huge black bow at the back. Her shoes were black peep toe heels and to compliment her 1950's vintage look she work a white bird cage veil.
Elly looked stunning and radiant and had a huge grin on her face all day! The Bridesmaids looked really stylish in black with their red rose bouquets. Each of the Bridesmaids wore a fur shrug to keep them warm on the way to the ceremony. A work colleague of Elly had leant her a beautiful vintage fur coat for the day.
During Elly & John's wedding ceremony they sang Christmas carols including 'Winter Wonderland'. Everyone also sang 'When i'm sixy four' by the Beatles. The songs were such a lovely part of their ceremony and put everyone in a festive mood!
Elly and John decided to have an intimate wedding inviting just their nearest and dearest friends and family. Following their ceremony canapes were served which included trout caught by both the Bride and Groom's fathers. The guests then made their way to Elly's family's local pub, which is known for it's delicious food. Everyone involved with Elly and John's wedding had a connection with the couple. Even the mini bus driver who took the bridesmaids to the Castle used to drive Elly to school when she was younger!
Elly and John are such a fun, warm and natural couple! They had a Winter wedding at Sherborne Castle complete with carol singing and vintage fur coats!
I love these two photographs. The first of the couple giggling during their wedding ceremony and the second of the couple with the lake behind them and the winter sun.
I don't think there is a shot of these two without a huge grin on their faces. More to follow shortly!
Following Rebecca & Giles' wedding ceremony in Part I at St Magdalene Church in Castleton we headed to Sherborne Castle for their reception. Sherborne Castle is an impressive building and is set in the most beautiful countryside.
Drinks reception was held in the Orangery, which is set in the formal gardens. We went off with the couple around the grounds, where we really were spoilt for choice with so many beautiful backdrops to choose from.
The couples evening celebrations were held in a marquee beside the lake. The Marquee was beautifully decorated by Giles' mum, who put flowers from her garden into vintage teacups on each table.
After the wedding breakfast and as the sun was setting we headed down to the boathouse beside the lake with Rebecca & Giles to make the most of the late summer light.
We wish Rebecca & Giles all the best and it was a pleasure to be your photographers for the day!
Rebecca and Giles were wed in Sherborne. Their reception was held at the beautiful Sherborne Castle. Here are a couple of our favourite photographs from their day to tide you over until the full blog post is up!
