Sarah and Steve had chosen the first weekend of November, the day after Bonfire night, to get married at the beautiful Norwood Park. The bride got ready at their home with her family and bridesmaid around to make sure it was a tranquil morning and provided the most gorgeous pastries! No stress allowed. Both arrived at the Georgian stately home at midday where they both just about managed to dodge each other and Sarah headed to the elegant bridal suite to step into her lace classy wedding dress. Shortly after, commenced the breathtaking walk down the most beautiful staircase to her very emotional father waiting at the bottom. Tears.
In a beautifully lit drawing room they tied the knot in a moving ceremony including two really powerful readings. In a sense, everything about the day was calm and serene, due to the venue, surroundings and the couple. Sarah and Steve were fantastic to work with and were more than willing to pop outside and brave the weather in between the rain. Looking at the pictures of the two of them you would believe that it was a golden autumnal day . . . . wrong. We made the most of a couple of breaks in the weather, lasting for no more than 20mins. Sometimes, along with a loving connection, that’s all the time you need.
After a lovely afternoon, guests headed over to the palladian-style reception rooms which were laid out beautifully for the wedding breakfast. Speeches, laughter and of course sparklers. Again the couple showed their laid-back characters as it was no hassle to take all their guests outside into the cold to sparkle. The evening got going in the form of ceilidh and everybody including the bride and groom looked like they were having a fantastic time.
Congratulations Sarah and Steve on your marriage. You look delightfully happy with each other, I wish you a very happy future. xx
