Gemma and Mike’s Spring Wedding at The William Cecil, Stamford

June 10, 2016 |


Oooh, we LOVE visiting The William Cecil, not only is it nestled in the beautiful, Georgian town of Stamford, but it is a gorgeous venue inside and out!

A usual bank holiday would consist of lots of wet weather…. Not today! We had a dry day and sunshine wahoo!

The bride and bridesmaids were in the bridal suite excitingly getting ready for the day ahead! They all looked fab already :-)

Gemma and Mike had chosen to hold their ceremony and wedding reception all at The William Cecil; this meant that we could pop back and see the girls a little later on when they were all about ready.

In the meantime, we went to have a look at the ceremony room and marquee. Both rooms looked amazing and Louise from Lily King was just finishing her magic touches before we took some photographs.

The marquee had personalised train tickets as place names, a map style seating plan and bunting- it looked FAB!

The groom arrived all suited and booted and perhaps a little nervous. He was surrounded by his 3 brothers and his best man, who were all on hand to help in any way they could. We took them around to the front of the hotel for some photographs.

The bride and her girls were all ready and after a few photos in the private bridal suite garden, it was time for them to get married!

Gemma looked amazing as she walked down the aisle with her proud dad, and guests enjoyed a lovely ceremony led by the Stamford Registrars.

Pimms and Champagne in the garden with a few group photographs is how they celebrated and guest congratulated the happy couple throughout the afternoon.

The bride and groom had planned a BBQ for their reception and the chefs were on hand and cooking to order as guests arrived with their plates.

After some great speeches, we stole the bride and groom away for a few moments to get some wedding photographs of the two of them at The William Cecil in Stamford.

For their evening reception, they had decided to do something a little different….. A dessert evening buffet with lots of delicious cakes and….. A juke box for everyone to choose their own songs!

We left them all dancing and eating cake- how FAB! Congratulations guys!
