Hannah and Mark were married at the fabulous Orangery in November last year.
The day was always going to be a chilly one at that time of year, but everyone gave us a warm welcome as we met with the girls at The Wisteria Suite within the Orangery grounds to capture some shots of Bridal preparations. Mark did a wonderful job of organising surprise after surprise for Hannah at points throughout the morning culminating in a really touching letter written from the heart about the start of the journey of their married lives together.
Walking across the bridge on the arm of her proud Dad, Hannah looked so beautiful as she made her way to Mark waiting for her in the arched doorway of the Garden Room. The ceremony went smoothly, and the weather was, although changeable, kind to us straight after the ceremony. We mingled with guests on the terrace, took some requested group shots and then whisked the Bridal Party along with Hannah and Mark around the pristine grounds.
The guest took their seats for their yummy wedding breakfast in the room decorated beautifully in blush pink and cream, which complemented the accent colour of the Bridesmaids gorgeous sparkly dresses.
The evening started literally with a bang as guest were treated to a fabulous surprise fireworks display that glittered across the sky and reflected in the wonderful water features of the grounds.
Hannah and Mark led their guests back and to the floor for their first dance as husband and wife, followed by Hannah dancing with her Dad. We said goodbye after the party had well and truly got underway and made our way home with big smiles and thoughts of a wonderful day.
Thank you for having us along Hannah and Mark, it was a pleasure x
