We were soooo excited for today- the sweetest couple had invited us to photograph their intimate and special wedding in Rutland.
Julia and Shaun had planned for smaller, more intimate wedding, filled with their closest friends and family at Oakham Registry Office and Barnsdale Hall Hotel.
The bride was excitingly getting ready in the magnificent Windsor Suite at Barnsdale Hall Hotel. This is a self-catering suite which is perfect for families to all stay together! The bridesmaids were all having their hair done and the bride was cool, calm and relaxed! We took some photographs in the fantastic suite of dresses, shoes and much more before leaving them to their final preparations.
Living in Oakham we are really lucky to have such a beautiful registry office right in the centre of the market town. It is a building full of character and smiley registrars. We waited outside for Shaun, the groom to arrive, and he did- completely with his best man-They looked awesome!
Guest started to arrive and take their seats and then….. The bride arrived in an amazing Rolls Royce- she looked fabulous!
After a wonderful ceremony, we made our way outside with guests to congratulate the bride and groom in the garden. Oakham Registry is lucky to have its very own, well-kept garden. This is beautiful and perfect for your group photographs. After a few of these, guests made their way back to Barnsdale to grab a drink, whilst we stayed with the bride and groom for some photographs.
Barnsdale greeted the newlyweds with smiles and pimm’s before their wedding breakfast began. As it was a slightly smaller gathering the bride and groom had chosen The Osprey Suite for their afternoon reception. This conservatory-style room looks out onto some stunning views of Rutland Water. It was perfect and decorated beautifully!
Their evening reception was to consist of Cheese, Cake, Wine, Sweets and a Buffet- sounds perfect! Before leaving them to enjoy the rest of this wonderful day, we took a short walk around the grounds of Barnsdale Hall with the bride and groom for some photographs with just the two of them.
These guys are such an awesome couple- full of giggles, smiles and they look gorgeous together!
Congratulations guys and thank you for inviting us to be a part of your very special day.
