Having been to Orton Hall before, a number of years ago, we couldn’t wait to go again! Natasha and Stuart fell in love with Orton and we know why. The main house is full of character, the gardens are endless and surrounding Orton Hall is a beautiful woodland.
We met Natasha in the morning getting ready at Orton, with her daughter and mum. She was very excited and nervous all at the same time! We left the girls for a little while and went to find the boys… who were in the pub next door!
As we walked to meet them we cast our eyes upon the wonderful orangery that had been beautifully dressed for their ceremony- WOW!
The groom was cool and calm greeting guests and trusting his best men with the rings….argghh! A few photographs followed and then it was time for everyone to take their seats. We made our way back upstairs to meet the bride- she looked incredible and took a walk down the traditional staircase at Orton Hall- which made for some wonderful photographs.
After their ceremony, signing the register and drinks, we popped out for some photographs. The weather was totally hit and miss today, so we jumped in and out of the weather for their group photographs. It was lovely to use the inside of the orangery for some photographs too- so it worked really well!
The bride and groom had found embarrassing photographs of all of their guests to make a fantastic table plan…. Find your photo…find your seat! What an awesome idea and everyone loved it. As they sat down in the stunningly dressed room, the mahoosive thunder storm started…. Phew- that was what you call ‘perfect timing!’.
After dinner and speeches, the rain had dried up and we popped out with the bride and groom for some photographs of just the two of them around Orton Hall. These guys looked awesome together as we explored the grounds and woods.
The disco was set up, dancing flip flops were ready and evening guests were arriving- for, what we knew was going to be, a fab evening reception.
Congratulations guys and thank you!
