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.
