I’m super excited to share this lovely wedding from Old Down Estate with you. It’s the wedding of Louisa and Sam my lovely couple who won my competition to ‘win your wedding photography’ that I launched at the beginning of 2015. Louisa and Sam are an amazingly gorgeous couple with a super cute little boy called Archie who ran rings ran everyone most the day, that was when he wasn’t trying to set the fire extinguisher off during the ceremony. Even young Archie couldn’t fail to see the burning passion between his parents! Luckily he was not able to work out how to use it before an adult intervened and he was back in his seat.
Louisa looked beautiful in her ivory dress and matching ivory shoes from Silver Bridals, as she was escorted down the aisle by her Father Tony towards Sam who was waiting for her at the end accompanied by his bestmen Chaz and Lee and a rather large Christmas tree. The ceremony room was stylishly decorated with flowers and decorations by Lyn Mcgauley and Wedding Fairies in white, red and green keeping with the Christmas theme and colours.
After the ceremony the couple exited to a snow machine instead of confetti keeping with the Christmassy theme. And whilst their guests enjoyed drinks we snuck off for a few wedding portraits. Then it was into the wedding breakfast for a meal of Game terrine and Somerset Cider Brandy Chutney followed by Pork tenderloin, turnip puree, pomme confit and apple topped off by a tasty Blackcurrant, vanilla Cheesecake with Lemon Curd Ice Cream.
By the end of the meal and speeches, darkness engulfed outside and inside The Old Down Estate really started to look like Christmas as decorations sparkled under the warm glow of the Christmas lights that now lit the rooms, giving the place a warm and cosy atmosphere as evening guests started to arrive just in time for their first dance.
I so love Christmas but a Christmas wedding I love even more and this has been my absolute favourite. Take a look at the images to see why.
