Our next wedding was Alice and Tristan’s day which took place entirely at Woodhall Manor in Suffolk. Woodhall Manor is a stunning venue with the opportunity for the ceremony to be held in the gorgeous walled garden in the dovecote if the weather’s looking good. Well, the forecast for Alice and Tristan’s day was not looking good (rain all day) right up until the morning of the wedding when it all changed so, we could have the ceremony outside … yippeee!
I was really looking forward to the outside ceremony and it didn’t disappoint. The only thing I’d say that I was a little sad about is that due to the current laws and legislation (according to the registrar conducting) I was not allowed to stand at the front during the ceremony so please note this if you’re planning an outdoor ceremony! Still we got some lovely photos from the back and it was nice to be allowed to take the shots from here whilst basking in the glorious sunshine.
After the ceremony we went through to the main gardens for drinks and a few group photos followed by going off for a little wander with Alice and Tristan to do their photos. Alice and Tristan looked amazing on their day. Alice’s dress was beautiful and she looked radiant in it whilst Tristan looked dashing in his suit. Both are a shy but really sweet couple who dislike having their photo being taken so I was honoured that they’d let me take them away for some photos on their own.
I love this set of photos, they’re natural and relaxed which is exactly the days we like photographing best. The flowers were beautiful although I’m not at all surprised as Rachel at The English Rose Florist is one of our favourite florists to work with.
In the evening I got to have another little wander with Alice and Tristan as we didn’t get the chance to cover all the beautiful grounds at Woodhall earlier in the afternoon. This is the first time ever that I’ve had my bride change into a pair of white fluffy slippers before going for a wander … brilliant idea and made me smile the rest of the evening knowing they were hiding under her dress!
Wonderful day and lovely people, here’s a small peep at their day
Alice and Tristan have seen their images and they kindly sent me the following e-mail which I’m sure she won’t mind me sharing:
The photos are wonderful, you’ve really captured the day well. We wanted to say a big thank you for how brilliant you were on the day, everyone commented on how friendly you both were and you definitely made us feel a lot more comfortable than we thought we would be!
We’re looking forward to showing the photos to all our friends and family :-)
