Catthorpe Manor is a beautiful country house in Leicestershire but literally less than 10 minutes from our studio in Rugby so we get the opportunity to photograph weddings there quite often. Laura and Ben were the latest of our couples to choose the venue and their wedding was beautiful as you will see from the images below.
The day started for the both of us at the hotel where Laura and Ben were getting ready. It was great to see Bryony Dalton who was doing the make up. We have worked together many times now and it is always such a pleasure to bump into her. Hair Styling was by Emma of Hair by ELB.
Now let’s talk dresses! Laura’s first dress (yes she had two) was a stunning gown by Ian Stuart (Le Jardin) from Fairytale Weddings of Towcester. She had a beautiful veil to match and even the shoes from Rachel Simpson matched!
Throughout the morning wonderful floral arrangements of Hiden Flowers came together. Flowers were definitely a main feature of the wedding.
Kev spent the morning with Ben and his groomsmen capturing a few photos of them together before they greeted the guests.
The weather was a little unsettled with the threat of rain so the ceremony took place in the beautiful Garden Room. Xenia Horne, harpist, provided the music.
It was then outside for drinks, canapes and photos in the gorgeous gardens of Catthorpe before the guests were welcomed in for the wedding breakfast. The decor was provided by Emporium Decor.
After the meal we had an opportunity for some more photos and some fun with the bridal party before the evening got under way. The cake was amazing and was by Cotton and Crumbs and after the newly weds had cut this it was onto the dancefloor with music and lighting by Crazy Horses Entertainment.
Then it was time for the dress change! Another stunning gown this time it was a White Rose from Sammie Lou Bridal Couture. So before we left we captured a few photos as the sun was getting low along with a few on the impressive staircase.
Great day. Massive thanks to Catthorpe Manor for making sure the wedding ran smoothly. Check out a few photos from the day below. If you want to see more contact Laura or Ben for the password and discount code for prints.
