A Sunny Autumn Wedding At Bartle Hall
Bartle Hall wedding photos in the autumn time are always going to be pretty special. The colours of the turning leaves, the early setting sunshine and the lingering warmth from summer always make for a great wedding day.
I began the day with Kimberley who was already at Bartle Hall with her family and bridesmaids, she was excitedly getting ready and enjoying the beginnings of an amazing day. Mark arrived soon after with his groomsmen so I met up with them for a few impromptu photos and to say hi. I returned back to the bridal suite to a whole bunch of singing and dancing as the girls were in the final stages of preparations.
Wedding Ceremony Inside Bartle Hall
The guests were soon convened downstairs in the beautifully decorated ceremony room, Kimberley was buttoned into her gorgeous dress before sharing a very special and slightly tearful moment with her mum. She made her way downstairs and up the aisle to meet Mark, she was preceded by her bridesmaids. After a ceremony filled with much laughter and joy, the couple completed the formal part of their day before making their way back up the aisle and into the welcoming arms of their family and friends.
A Sunny Wedding Reception
After some confetti, I stole the couple away for a few portraits around the stunning grounds of the hall, making our way around the gardens and into the wooded areas. Once everyone had greeted the couple and enjoyed the drinks reception, we paused for some family groups in the gardens before dinner. As everyone was convened back in the gorgeously decorated Bartle Hall Suite, the couple were welcomed into their wedding breakfast to enjoy good company and a delicious meal.
A Love Story Themed Wedding Breakfast
Kimberley & Mark had decided to theme their wedding breakfast on famous romantic films alongside pastel colours and fresh florals. After the food was finished, everyone enjoyed a round of speeches and Kimbereleys mum surprised her with a song that she had wrote especially for her wedding day. It was safe to say that emotions were running high after that and it was a very special moment to end the wedding breakfast on.
Deadbeats Wedding Band
It was soon time for their party to begin and after greeting more friends, the guests took to The Coaching Barn for the couples first dance. The couple had hired the amazing Deadbeats Wedding Band who played them well into the night. As darkness was approaching, I took the couple outside for their final portrait by the surrounding countryside before leaving them to enjoy their evening together.
