I was so thrilled to photograph this Cadhay wedding. A hidden gem on the outskirts of Ottery St. Mary. Cadhay is a striking Tudor building, built around a central courtyard surrounded by beautiful lawns, ponds and gardens. It really is a dream venue.
Details With A Personal Touch
The lovely couple wanted a wedding that was going to be elegant, personal and full of fun. To achieve this they had a little help from friends and family. The Groom used his artistic talents and illustrated the wedding stationery. The bride’s mother grew all the flowers used in the bouquets and floral arrangements. And the Bride wore a bespoke dress made by a family friend.
A Cadhay Wedding With Personality
An Intimate Church Ceremony
The couple chose to have an traditional church ceremony at a local village church. The personal touch followed through to the service with readings from friends. As well as a friend who played the guitar during the signing of the register.
After the service the couple exited the church to a showering of confetti. The confetti was dried flower petals in the colours of the wedding. Then it was on to their Cadhay wedding. Best Day Ever supplied the vintage grey Morris Minor they rode in.
In keeping with the couple’s fun personalities, the Groomsmen had their formal group shot in the morris minor.
A Cadhay Wedding with Rain And Romance
Rain or shine this couple were determined to enjoy the beautiful gardens of Cadhay. The moment the showers broke we were outside laughing and joking. Perfectly illustrating that the best shots come when you relax and just be yourselves.
Wedding Breakfast Humour
The wedding breakfast took place in The Old Apple Store. It looked beautiful decorated with fairy lights. On the tables were vases of fresh garden flowers. Jars of miniature honey were wedding favours. And there were stick-on moustaches to have fun with. In keeping with the couple’s sense of fun, a Lego bride and groom sat atop the cake.
After some yummy vegetarian food and some fun speeches it was time to hit the dance floor. The happy couple were up first wit their first dance. Then it was time for all the guests to join the dance floor with a fun an upbeat ceilidh.
