Ashfield House Wedding Photography
On Saturday I spent an amazing day with an awesome couple at the stunning Ashfield House in Standish.
I began the morning with Suzanne who was at her home relaxing and enjoying some time with her bridesmaids before preparing herself for the day ahead. I took some time to shoot all the lovely details of what she would be wearing before stepping back and watching what was going on. Once the time had come, Suzanne was helped in to her outfit by her girls before jumping her Beauford for the short journey to Church.
I raced ahead to meet up with Pete who arrived with his groomsmen to greet the couples family and friends. As everyone had gathered inside, Suzanne soon arrived and was walked down the aisle by her father to meet Pete. Their ceremony mass was interspersed with readings, hymns lead by one of their friends singing from the balcony, moments of laughter, heartfelt glances between the couple and the ritual soaking of the bestman! Once the formal part of their day was complete, the couple exited the church to congratulatory hugs before jumping back into the Beauford.
As we headed to the venue, the sun was streaming through the clouds and we arrived ready for an awesome afternoon at the Ashfield House. I was there to greet the couple as they arrived and whilst their guests were arriving, we wandered the lush gardens for some portraits in the sunshine. Once everyone had arrived and enjoyed the drinks reception, we paused for some family groups in the gardens before dinner. As everyone was convened in the gorgeously decorated restaurant, the couple were welcomed in to their wedding breakfast to enjoy good company and a delicious meal.
After the food was finished, everyone enjoyed a round of speeches before settling in for the evening. It was during this time that the amazing Slinky Band was setting up for the evening party. Once everyone was ready, the couple were welcomed into their party, cut their cake and took to the dance floor as man and wife. I also had the chance to shoot some final portraits in one of the many gorgeous spots both inside and outside the house before leaving the couple to enjoy their evening.
What a day it was and always a pleasure to spend it with some amazing wedding people including The Rose Boutique, Jade Elizabeth MUA, George Brown from Another World Videography & Katie and her team at Ashfield House. Massive Congratulations to Suzanne & Pete, I hope that you have an awesome honeymoon, thanks so much for having me as your photographer!
