It was great to be back at the wonderful Dodmoor House in Northamptonshire for the wedding of Becci and Stuart. This popular exclusive use venue has wonderful opportunities for photos so it’s always a pleasure when we get chosen to be a couple’s wedding photographer.
But before the trip to Dodmoor there was preparations and a Church ceremony to complete first.
Becci was with her sisters and parents in the morning. She had Michelle and Jordan from Mack Hair Salon in Rugby doing hair and make up for her. It was great to be part of the morning seeing Becci open presents and a card from Stuart before she got into her gorgeous Maggie Sottero gown from Serendipity in Weedon.
Stuart was getting ready with his parents and his groomsmen. Suits were from Slaters. He then travelled to the Church in Braunston in style in a rather nice Mustang. Becci on the other hand had four legged friends to take her in the form of horses and a carriage.
Vicar, Natalie, was waiting at the Church to meet Becci when she arrived holding flowers by Orange Blossom, who also did the other floral arrangements around the venue. They exchanged rings from M&M Jewellers in Rugby, somewhere we had recommended they go to when we had met before the wedding.
Then it was outside for confetti and a decision was made to do the family photos at this point as the weather looked like it could change. The newlyweds went for a trip around the village before getting into the Mustang to travel to Dodmoor. At this point we knew we had definitely made the right decision re photos as it poured but not for too long so we were still able to get a group shot with the drone and some beautiful couple portraits before they headed into the wedding breakfast. Our friends from Mango Acoustic entertained throughout the drinks reception and wedding breakfast. Always so nice to see them.
After the meal we had time to pop down by the canal for some more photos before more guests arrived. Our Photo Booth began which went down a storm and the Original Pizza Box arrived to feed the guests their evening food!
The evening got under way with the cutting of the cake by Melody Cakes and then the dancing commenced with music from 1 Entertainment.
It was brilliant to be working with Ben of BRS Videography again. He has produced a beautiful wedding film for them.
Big thanks to the team from Dodmoor and also Lemon Zest for looking after us all. To see more photos contact Becci and Stuart for the password and discount code for their gallery.
