Grittleton House is such an amazing venue and I was excited to be back there to shoot a wedding in February.
The initial plan had been for the ceremony to take place in the Orangery but with Storm Dennis in full force, it was sensibly moved to the Yellow Gallery which looked beautiful.
There were so many personal touches - Sam herself had designed all of the signs and table names, and the cake and all of the flowers (which were grown and hand-dried) were provided by the parents. The cake (or I should say cakes!) were beautiful with lots of little personal touches and the flowers (of which there were soooo many - bouquets, buttonholes, table centres and the ceremony decor) made the entire place smell amazing!
Unfortunately the storm meant that we were unable to go outside (in fact, the wind was so ferocious that all of the guests were advised to park in front of the house just in case one of the tall trees fell into the driveway!) but, that's the beauty of Grittleton House - there are so many amazing backdrops indoors that it is easy to find locations for photos.
It was an amazing day full of smiling and laughter - in fact, I've rarely seen a wedding with so much laughter. Thanks must go to Matt Fox who second shot for me ensuring we were able to capture both Sam and Kyle's preparations as well as being a second pair of eyes during the ceremony.
The evening was rounded off with a Ceilidh with music provided by the Dun Reels. All of the guests threw themselves into each and every dance which made it a lot of fun to watch!
