We were in for a treat today, two beautiful venues for Stacy and Ben’s Summer Wedding. The magnificent Fort Henry nestled in the beautiful Exton Estate. Along with Rockingham Village Hall, one of the most beautiful village hall’s we have ever seen!
We met Stacy at her parents’ house just outside of Rockingham Village. She was excitingly getting ready for the day ahead with her parents and bridesmaids. After some photographs of the excitement, dress and details, we made our way to Exton village to find the boys!
Ben, the groom, was relaxing the beer garden at The Fox and Hounds in Exton. Complete with his best man and a few beers- they were very chillaxed! The groom looked great and we shortly made our way onto the picturesque Exton Estate. Around 2miles into the estate, you are met with Fort Henry, a new ceremony venue for Rutland set on the lake at Exton Estate. It really is beautiful inside and out! Today, the bride and groom had planned for an outdoor ceremony, and the weather was perfect for it! As guests arrived, they were wowed by the venue and we were all wowed by the bride when she arrived….a little later than planned!
After a beautiful outdoor ceremony and a few group photographs, friends and family made their way to the reception whilst we stayed at Fort Henry for some wedding photographs with the bride and groom…… and their special guest…. Dexter their dog!
We arrived at Rockingham and looked at the decorations that filled this amazing hall. The bride and groom had certainly pulled out all of the stops to add so much to, what was already, a wonderful hall. Flowers, pompoms, candles and much more filled the hall and it looked gorgeous. Outside they had gazebos, hay bales, Kilner jars filled with drinks and outdoor games!
Two of the bride and groom’s oldest friends said a few lovely words before it was time for guests to tuck into the BBQ, drinks and listen to the FAB speeches! After this, we explored the surroundings of the hall and fields for some photographs with the bride and groom as the sun was low in the sky. It was a beautiful evening and even a few drops of rain didn’t worry anyone playing games outside!
The bride and groom took to the dancefloor as newlyweds for their first dance, they were shortly followed by all of their guests and proceeded to dance the night away!
Congratulations to a super couple and thanks for an awesome day!
