Simon & Charlotte
Choosing ‘Ardencote’ to tie the knot, this lovely pair’s big day was amazing! Nestled in the heart of Warwickshire countryside, the Ardencote has it all – beautifully maintained grounds, gorgeous architecture and its very own spa to help rid those pesky wedding hangovers!
We started the day with Charlotte and her bridesmaids in the venue’s bridal suite. Super relaxed, these ladies kept us giggling throughout the morning, especially when the bridesmaids thought they’d been chatting to groomsmen from the wrong wedding! Charlotte chose the most stunning dress – with intricate, lace details on the neckline and arms, she looked so beautiful as she stepped into it and absolutely wowed her father and two brothers.
Simon patiently waited downstairs as guests arrived and took their seats. Supported by his groomsmen, the big moment came for Charlotte to walk down the aisle. Simon kept his composure but couldn’t resist having a little look at his bride.
The ceremony itself was short and sweet, but full of love. Soon enough, the new Mr & Mrs Chatterley were walking hand in hand out of the room as husband and wife. Guests cheered and showered them in confetti and couldn’t wait to congratulate them!
We loved exploring the grounds with the bridesmaids and groomsmen, taking full advantage of the various backdrops including the bridge over the venue’s lake. We had a hint of autumnal colours on this particular mild October day, especially on the Ardencote’s tree lined driveway – it’s one of our favourite times of year for weddings as the warm oranges and browns start to appear.
The wedding breakfast was served in the venue’s light and airy room with a quirky dome roof. After a sumptuous meal, guests were entertained with hilarious and heartfelt speeches before the room was transformed and ready for the evening partying to begin!
After taking to the dance floor for their first dance as newlyweds, guests couldn’t wait to join them and thrown down some shapes (two guests in particular were loving Ken the DJ!)
Simon & Charlotte – It was an absolute pleasure capturing your big day. Here’s to a married life full of wonderful adventures!
