A bride in red | A vintage winter castle wedding | Elly & John

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!
