Catherine and Trey’s day had arrived and we had the pleasure of visiting Deene Park for their special wedding reception. This is a beautiful wedding venue, nestled in the countryside with an array of views, gardens and lakes.
This lovely couple now live in America, but it was always Catherine’s dream to host her wedding at Deene park- and we can see why!
We began our adventure today at the bride’s parents’ house in Uppingham. The girls were having their hair done as we explored this wonderful house and found great spots to use for photographing their dresses, shoes and other details.
After leaving the girls to their final preparations, we popped into the guest house around the corner to see how the boys were doing. They were great and ready to go! The groom, Trey, looked very smart and the boys were packing a cheeky tin of gin and tonic in case it was needed to settle his nerves! For their ceremony, they had chosen the beautiful church in Lyddington Village, just a few miles from Uppingham. We made our way to the church to wait for the VIP limos and bus to arrive full of guests!
Everyone started to arrive and we were just waiting on the all-important bride. She arrived- and looked stunning as she bravely walked to the church in the random rain shower that had arrived alongside her! A beautiful ceremony filled with hymns and reading led to these guys being officially married! Guest congregated out of the church with confetti to congratulate this happy couple. It was like a different day to earlier on with the weather- it was blue skies and glorious sunshine- wow!
Today, the bride and groom wanted to arrive at Deene Park in time to greet guests, with this in mind, the bus waited whilst we all got a head start!
We couldn’t resist stopping the bride and groom on the long drive with the quaint bridge, lake and house in the background- the views were stunning!
After lots of drinks and a few group photographs, it was time for everyone to head into the marquee for dinner and speeches. Whilst guests took their seats we spent a little time with this lovely couple exploring the amazing gardens at Deene Park- the options were endless- we could have carried on for hours…..
The band set up and welcomed the bride and groom onto the floor for their first dance- we knew that they would continue to have a wonderful evening as we left them all dancing the night away!
Congratulations Catherine and Trey!
