After the Christmas dinner, Family gatherings and New Year Celebrations- we had something awesome to look forward to… Dawn and Martin’s Wedding Day! Treats followed by more treats with a new church, a new wedding venue and an awesome couple! We just knew it was going to be a brill day!
Dawn was being pampered at her parents’ home, the house was full of music and giggles as the girls got ready for the day ahead. When we met Martin at the church he was full smiles, a few nerves but mostly excitement!
The church was set in the small village of Enderby; this was a mission church and full of community spirit and really lovely people. Dawn arrived looking AMAZING- complete with her Jenny Packham feather shrug she definitely arrived in style!
After wedding photographs throughout a songful ceremony, the guests enjoyed some homemade shortbread whilst congratulating the happy couple!
We then had a short drive for their wedding reception at Catthorpe Manor and we were welcomed with an amazing surprise…..
Catthorpe manor are undertaking a massive refurbishment project which means the main country house is now out of bounds for future weddings this year. With this in mind Dawn and Martin had mentioned to us to keep towards the banqueting suite for group wedding photography. However when we arrived… the house was builder and scaffolding free…. which meant we could use every part of it! Wow! We were all over the moon! Catthorpe Manor is such a super setting and backdrop for your wedding day photographs.
Dawn and Martin had planned a Mulled Wine reception to greet their guests in from the cold and then an afternoon tea lunch complete with macaroons, scones and cake made of cheese….YUMMY! Before it was time to say goodnight we snuck out with Dawn and Martin for some romantic evening photographs- which we LOVE!
A perfect start to the year and SO excited to share these wedding photographs from Catthorpe Manor with you all….Enjoy!
