Wedding at St Mary's Worplesdon and Gorse Hill

Continuing our big catch up on 2017 weddings,  we return to a warm and sunny October for the marriage of James and Katie at St Mary's Church Worplesdon, Guildford followed by a reception at the relaxed and welcoming Gorse Hill in Woking, Surrey.

The last time we had met the lovely James and Katie had been in April when we made a trip to the Bluebells of Banstead Wood. 

The weather on the big day was just right and after capturing Katie getting ready with her Bridesmaids and mum and day at Gorse Hill it was off in their Beauford wedding car for the short journey to St Mary's for a personal and intimate marriage ceremony.

The happy couple emerged from St Mary's looking radiant and then forwards and onwards through the line of confetti throwers and back into the safety of the bridal car.

The rest of the day ran as smoothly as a craftsmen's plane on a seasoned oak beam...and as the weather was so fine everyone just relaxed and enjoyed themselves on the terrace and lawn areas.

After a lovely romantic walk through the trees it was time for dinner and for some very entertaining wedding speeches. Needless to say the venue took o a party atmosphere as everyone headed to the bar and dance floor.

A lovely couple, a wonderful day and two fine wedding venues....we look forward to our next Gorse Hill wedding in June.

Before that there is James's and Katie's wedding album to design, a sumptuous luxury coffee table one that will look stunning.

Bye for now

Tithe Barn Burford Bridge Hotel wedding 

It's a wet Saturday in November and we are back at the lovely Burford Bridge Hotel, situated at the foot of Box Hill next to the River Mole, for the marriage of Tom and Tasmin.

The bad weather didn't dampen the spirits of our lovely young couple on this, their big day. Tom had a welcoming smile on his face as he stood by the main entrance with his Best Man whilst the radiant Tasmin looked stunning in her beautiful wedding dress.

After a lovely intimate wedding ceremony in the atmospheric Tithe Barn, everyone moved into The River Room for drinks and canapes whilst we watched out for a break in the weather.

With the wet conditions remaining defiant and the wedding breakfast getting ever closer we proceeded with the group wedding photographs indoors but shortly after we finished we were rewarded with a break in the weather. The rain stopped and we were able to get all the guests out for the everyone wedding picture in the garden followed by a romantic walk and photo session for our excited newlywed couple.

After Tasmin's father's entertaining wedding speech and the cutting of the impressive wedding cake which Tasmin had made herself, it was time for us to leave.

We really enjoyed being with Tasmin and Tom, a truly lovely couple who we wish all the happiness for the future.

Thanks also to the Burford Bridge Hotel staff for making the Tithe Barn look so welcoming and for making everything run so smoothly.

St. Mary's and Ramster Hall Chiddingfold wedding

Now that Christmas is past and we are in the cold and sometimes gloomy month of  January what better time to take a look at some of last year's weddings and so to warm us up in an instant we are going back to the lovely summer month of August and to the wedding of Matt and Georgie.

We last saw Matt and Georgie for their pre wed photo shoot back in March when we took them for a romantic stroll amongst the daffodils in Richmond Park.

Now the Big Day had arrived and what a glorious day, bright, warm and sunny....we found Matt sitting outside The Crown Inn, a popular local in the village of Chiddingfold, with a pint whilst the lovely Georgie was getting ready a few minutes walk down Petworth Road at The Swan Inn.

The intimate marriage service took place at St. Mary's Church, conveniently situated between both pubs again on the Petworth Road...and after leaving as husband and wife the celebrations began in the church grounds with a spectacularly long line of confetti throwing from on high.

Then onwards for a short trip to the charmingly rustic Ramster Hall, a delightful Surrey wedding venue we have had the pleasure of working at on a number of occasions over the years.

With all the guests enjoying the fine weather out in the pretty Courtyard Garden one couldn't have asked for better conditions.

After completing the group wedding photographs we whisked Matt and Georgie off for a lovely romantic walk in the countryside that surrounds Ramster.

The rest of the afternoon and night time celebrations took place in the atmospheric Long Hall and Great Drawing Room and we left as the band was whipping everyone into a joyful frenzy on the packed dance floor.

It was a pleasure working with Matt and Georgie, a lovely happy and relaxed couple who we wish all the happiness for the future.
