Laura & Paul chose the very iconic Chatsworth House to be married.
If you’ve not been to Chatsworth – and as it’s such a popular attraction the question is “why not” – they allow couples to spend special time in the gardens as part of the experience. Much of the day is spent in a beautiful courtyard, where friends and family can relax, but it’s when the gardens and house are brought into play that couples eyes light up in delight.
Laura began her day at the Hunting Tower with her bridesmaids and mum. There was a relaxed and fun atmosphere throughout the morning which always leads me to believe the rest of the day will follow the same pattern.
When she was ready, we went to the local Church in Edensor. The vicar was incredibly kind and allowed me much more access than he usually would for photographers and I made sure to thank him at the end of the service.
They had arranged for a horse and cart to take them back to Chatsworth and we trotted down the country lanes while they spent a little time together, reflecting on the day so far. Back with their guests for a while, the groomsmen were treated to converse trainers to match the bride and many of the guests took the opportunity to have ice creams before I took the beautiful couple for their wedding portraits.
As the afternoon drew to a close, they were all called in to dinner and the huge doors opened to rapturous applause as they made their way in for the wedding breakfast in the incredible dining room. Of course, as is traditional, a fantastic set of speeches followed and they finally danced the night away.
A perfect wedding day…
