At the end of March we were in for a treat photographing the gorgeous Keri & Chris’ wedding at Easton Grange. Firstly we love photographing at Easton Grange as it’s a local venue for us and just stunning at all times of year with ample opportunities for photographs both indoors and outside. We hadn’t worked with Corinne and Alice at Easton before (since the staff changed last year) but they were both brilliant and we’ll look forward to working with them again at our other weddings at Easton Grange later this year.
So, back to the wedding, Keri got ready in the bridal room at Easton Grange with her bridesmaids and parents. The fabulous Amelia Garwood did their hair and make up and all was very chilled and relaxed. Whilst I was with the girls, David joined Chris and all the guests arriving.
For the ceremony Keri and Chris had hired a brilliant set of musicians (Scintillo Quartet) who were amazing, we’ve heard them a few times before but I loved listening to their Game of Thrones Music which was mesmerizing. Keri and her dad walked up the aisle so speedily (I think she was super ready for the celebrations and to say ‘I do’) and both her and Chris looked delighted to see each other. The ceremony was wonderful and filled with laughter when Chris tried to put the ring on the wrong hand!
We were lucky with the weather and although it was a little breezy it was warm enough for guests to spend some time on the patio and for us to have huge amounts of confetti there as well as drinks and canapes. We had a few groups to do followed by a little bit of time to wander with the two of them on their own before we were in for speeches and the meal. Keri looked radiantly beautiful in her fitted dress and her flowers by Helen Newman were marvelous whilst Chris looked dashing and handsome and neither stopped smiling all day.
After the wedding breakfast there was a little more time for some extra mingling and a handful more photos (as we couldn’t miss out on the pretty sunset) as well as a cake cutting. For the evening Keri and Chris had organised floating candles in the main barn and had planned a Ceilidh with no first dance. The Ceilidh (Stumpy Oak) were superb and got all the guests up and joining in. A few dances in Keri even went and got changed into a different floaty evening dress!
This wedding was always going to be a wonderful one as Keri and Chris are two of the nicest, most relaxed people you could hope to meet and we’re delighted that we got to be a part of their day and wish we could do it all over again. We’re certain they’ll have a very long and happy marriage ahead of them.
Here’s a peep at their day which they have kindly agreed I can share with you
