Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

2016 Christmas Card 

Here's this year's nativity themed Christmas Card which we hope you enjoy... 

 

Lots of great weddings in 2016

It's been a busy and a tumultuous year so we haven't had time to keep up our blog.

There have been many truly memorable moments: 

- A Bride and Groom climbing a tree in Richmond Park

- A spectacular 'Strictly' style first dance (the couple were ex dance students)

- A couple wearing pheasant feather button holes and dream catchers & sporting a shot gun

- A Groom and his groomsmen wearing Lego accessories 

- All the wedding guests spontaneously singing  'Love is all around' during the wedding ceremony

 

Finally on Monday 19th December we had our final wedding for the year...

and one that will be difficult to forget... 

Zombie horde invades wedding

What with the Police being called to sort out a serious situation...

Involving a swarming horde of Zombies headed by our now gruesome looking Bride and Groom...and requiring the wedding guests to be escorted to a Quarantine Zone...and many more gruesome things.

Tony and Bev, you look fabulous, before and after, have a wonderful Christmas honeymoon.

A blustery February wedding at Russets Country House

Turning briefly away from our extensive catch up of 2015 weddings here's a quick look at a delightful and intimate little wedding from the first week in February this year. We were back down in the quaint little village of Chiddingfold covering Matt and Charlotte's marriage at the very comfortable and welcoming Surrey wedding venue Russets Country House.

In our pre wedding 'Words of Advice' email we had warned Matt and Charlotte of the strong likelihood of rain and indeed the closer the day came the more ominous the signs looked.

But on the day, apart from a blustery wind, which we were able to get around by getting the wedding photos done in the relative calm of the front of Russets, everything was fine.

Everyone had smiles on their faces and when we left the reception at the start of the wedding breakfast we were able to say that everything had worked out perfectly for our wedding couple.

Charlotte looked beautiful and Matt enjoyed being with his brothers and his dad's fabulously well kept Triumph Stag.

Tina also got to meet Thomas and Amy again, whose wedding she had covered in Guildford last year and at which Charlotte had been a Bridesmaid.

All in all, a great February wedding and it was good again to see Tim and Kate in their lovely house and also Louise from the Just Jane catering company - all very friendly and highly professional people.

We wish Matt and Charlotte a wonderful life together.

Intimate Artington House and Guildford Castle wedding

Continuing on our catch up of 2015 wedding activity this wedding goes back to 28th May for a lovely intimate and personal little wedding for Colin and Cora at Guildford Register Office in Artington House.

As well as their two witnesses there was just their four lively children who all seemed to have a great fun time especially the two sweet little ballerina sisters.

The smaller Artington room in Artington House was just right for such a small wedding and after the intimate marriage ceremony we went off to the lovely gardens at Guildford Castle for some romantic wedding pictures of our happy newlyweds.

A lovely couple with delightful children and some relaxed and romantic wedding memories.

Once again it was a pleasant experience covering a marriage ceremony at Artington House as the staff there are very friendly and helpful.

Leigh Church service and Burford Bridge Hotel wedding reception

We had last seen Daisy and Martin on Box Hill in July for their pre wed photo shoot and now fast forward to September for the big day itself where the starting point was Daisy's parents' farm house near the village of Leigh.

From there it was a short journey down the road to the village of Leigh itself for the wedding ceremony at The Church of Bartholomew followed by the wedding reception at the newly refurbished Burford Bridge Hotel at the base of Box Hill in Dorking.

Needless to say Daisy looking stunning in her wedding dress along with her lovely Bridesmaids and Martin looked very dapper in his smart blue suit accompanied by his fun Groomsmen.

 

Highlights of the day for us were:

1. The pet dog bringing the keys down the aisle of the church

2. Martin getting absolutely covered with wedding confetti

3. Martin and the boys and their Space Hopper race on the lawn and bouncing by the swimming pool

 

A great fun day.

Once again the staff at the Burford Bridge Hotel were superb and grounds along with the classic Tithe Barn all helped to make the day one to remember.

We wish Daisy and Martin all the very best for their future life together.
