St. George College Chapel Weybridge wedding

For our latest wedding blog, (well, in fact, to be honest, only our third blog of the year, but hey we have been super wedding busy and in the New Year we will be super diligent, and that's a promise!) we return to warmer and sunnier times in May for the marriage of Matt and Vicky.

We'd seen our lovely couple only a month previously in April when we had a trip to the beautiful Virginia Water for their engagement shoot and from our time there we knew their wedding day would be light-hearted and packed with fun and laughter.... as well as the obvious romance...

 

 

The weather on the day itself was beautiful (though rather too sunny for our liking) and their marriage ceremony was at the impressive St. George College Chapel Weybridge, a venue open to them as Vicky, at that time, taught politics at the college.

After a relaxed and at times very funny wedding ceremony (as well as Vicky’s sister falling flat on her face as she went onto the stage area to do her reading, Matt and Vicky were often seen in fits of laughter) we had some confetti throwing fun in the bright and glaring sun.

Then we went off looking for some shade for the group wedding pictures before leaving for the wedding reception at Merris Wood Golf Club, but only after a bit of justifiable posing around their wedding transportation...

With Matt being a fireman, well they had to travel in style in a fabulous gleaming red fire engine...and yes the driver, a good mate of Matt’s did the expected as we left St. George College Chapel...

Whoop, whoop, whoop, weeeooo....eeee eeeoooeeeooo....

 

And on our journey to the delight of passers-by........ Whoop, whoop, whoop, weeeooo....eeee eeeoooeeeooo...

 

And then as we arrived at the venue to the delight of the wedding guests...Whoop, whoop, whoop, weeeooo...eeee eeeoooeeeooo.

 

Fantastic.

I’m sure that when Matt is working, that sound spells a potentially serious situation, but in this instance, with him and Vicky on board, it just made me grin from ear to ear...

Hey I’m sitting in a fire engine on a wedding day!

At Merris Wood we had a great trip around the beautiful grounds in some golf buggies for some relaxed, romantic shots around a large pond far away from the madding crowd.

Then back to the fray....and needless to say, the afternoon and evening celebrations were a hoot.

Guests relaxed out in the sun, Matt and the boys including his firemen colleagues along with Vicky and the girls and her teaching colleagues had a lot of fun playing and posing and just simply enjoying themselves.

A fabulous couple, celebrating a wonderful event on a smashing day.

Matt and Vicky, we salute your positive attitude and love of life and we wish you a wonderful future together.

Christ Church South Nutfield Christmas wedding 

For our latest wedding blog, we return to 2018, just after Christmas on 29th December for the marriage of Mark and Harriet, a lovely couple who had seen us at a previous wedding, that of Will and Alice back in December 2016 at Addington Palace.

Having had a fun pre-wedding photo shoot in Richmond Park a few weeks earlier, fingers were crossed that the weather for this winter wedding would hold up especially as the reception was in Harriet’s parent’s garden.

 

 

And sure enough on the big day itself, the weather was fine.

At the house, Harriet was relaxing with her Bridesmaids whilst the caterers were busy in the garden setting up in the large reception Tipi, whilst Mark was checking that everything was running smoothly with the wedding ceremony arrangements at the nearby Christ Church South Nutfield, a venue we had last worked at back in 2016.

After a glass of celebratory champagne with her Bridesmaids, Harriet left to change and in no time at all was ready and looking ever the beautiful bride in her lovely figure hugging open back sheath wedding dress.

After the wedding ceremony, we captured the fun of their very long and twisting line of confetti throwers and then zoomed off behind them off to their special place for a romantic walk and some personal pictures.

Then back to the reception party in the garden where all the guests were in fine form...the drinks were flowing ...the canapés were being served and the fire pits were adding a nice level of warmth to the occasion.

Before entering the Tipi for the wedding breakfast, there was the Bride and Groom’s sparkler exit which considering the number of people involved was a spectacular success.

Inside, the set up was impressive and very atmospheric ...guests could also eat marshmallows over a fire pit or have fun in the ski drinking booth, where you drank from a ski as it was raised...a great idea borrowed from Will and Alice’s wedding involving lots of fun and spillages.

The highlight of the evening was most definitely the speeches which were very funny and entertaining especially when it ended with everyone joining in the singing of the 12 days of Christmas, each table was allocated a particular verse whilst Mark had to sing ‘ A Partridge in a Pear tree’ some 12 times.

With a lovely vegetarian curry dinner served by The Herb Kitchen and some great get up and dance music from the band Mister Kanish, this winter wedding was a great day of celebration...a tough act following so closely after Christmas.

We wish Mark and Harriet all the very best for the future along with Will and Alice who had twins a few weeks earlier.

 Frensham Pond Hotel wedding 

Catching up on all our weddings of 2018 today we return to a lovely warm and sunny day in June for the marriage of Justin and Grace at the welcoming Frensham Pond Hotel, situated in the beautiful Surrey Hills.

This was our first time here though we have done a couple of pre-wed shoots on the common and down on the sandy beach around Frensham Great Pond.

We were booked for a half day coverage so we would leave around the start of the wedding breakfast so lots to do in the four hours before then.

When we arrived guests were already out on the sunny boardwalk relaxing with drinks...Justin was greeting guests and checking that things were all as they should be whilst Grace was getting ready with her Bridesmaids up in the Bridal Suite.

Then the moment arrived and there was Grace walking down the aisle looking stunning in her beautiful wedding dress, on route to marrying the waiting Justin.

Following a lovely intimate wedding ceremony, everyone spilled out onto the patio, lawn and boardwalk for a delightful fun afternoon in the sun.

After capturing the afternoon's activities we whisked our Bride and Groom off for a romantic walk around the pond and then back to the hotel for some posing on some marble elephants followed by some pictures by the life-sized copper horses.

Then, to continue the statue theme, we had some fun with some life-size cardboard cutouts of Justin that the Best Man had brought for the occasion. 

Then our four hours were up and we left Justin and Grace to continue celebrating their wedding day.

A wonderful day, a great venue and a lovely couple - we wish them all the very best for the future.

Lovely October wedding at Ewell Court House

We had last seen Paul and Finn back in April when we joined them at their wedding venue Ewell Court House, a venue unbeknown to us and just a short distance from the A3 that we had passed by on many occasions.

We were here for their pre wedding photo shoot and being a lovely sunny Sunday we got to walk round the beautiful park that is adjacent to the venue, finding areas that we could potentially come back to for their wedding many months later in the last week of October.

 

Lovely romantic pre wed autumnal photo shoot taken at Surrey wedding venue Ewell Court House in the beautiful park on the fairytale Pack Horse Bridge

Some romantic pre wedding pictures taken in the beautiful autumnal grounds of Surrey wedding venue Ewell Court House Park

 

And now the Big Day had arrived and again it was a beautiful day; with Finn starting with her mum and Bridesmaids in The Greyhound Hotel in Carshalton whilst Paul was at the venue helping make sure that everything was set up as planned.

With a lovely heartfelt marriage ceremony and with music from friends and girl band The Dolls, it was out into the sunshine on the terrace for champagne and canapés, bubbles and group wedding photos. Who could have believed that this was late October?

Then, quickly stealing them away for a romantic walk around the park, we set about retracing some of our pre wed shoot steps, in particular to the magical and fairytale like Pack Horse Bridge.

Then before the wedding speeches and afternoon Tea there was the cutting of the cake...or should we say cakes...It turned out that there were some 80 plus individually made and decorated cakes, presented in mugs and sporting a range of accessories, all made by the Paul’s mum. What a supreme effort and resulting in a wonderful display of colour and fun.

The theme for the wedding was music, as Paul and Finn both share a passion for it along with the fact that Finn runs a music teaching business...so LP album themed tables, special love mix tape cassettes and CDs plus The Dolls were the order of the day.

The theme however reached a crescendo in the evening when after a set by The Dolls, Finn donned a guitar and joined the band for another set. Needless to say it took everyone, including Paul by surprise and it was a truly memorable moment that we don’t think anyone will forget.

We applaud you both for a super wedding where everyone had fun and so much effort was put into making it all so personal.

We wish you a fabulous future ahead of you.
