Gail and Bens wedding at Salomons estate was slap bang in the middle of the wettest couple of weeks of last summer but it didn’t dampen their spirits or stop them from having a wonderful wedding day.

Their day was filled with love and joy surrounded by all their nearest and dearest and they were one of the most chilled couples I’ve worked with.

A Surprise Ceremony

Gail and Ben were already married as they’d gone through the legal bit the previous year but only a couple of their guests already knew this.  They had one of their good friends perform the ceremony which they knew would let the cat out of the bag pretty quickly!

Confetti was thrown in the Drawing Room after the ceremony and the guests congregated in the bar for drinks.  It was still raining so we couldn’t do their group photos outside but used the Gold Room for these which was lovely.

Indoor Bride and Groom Portraits

It was a shame we couldn’t venture out into the grounds as they are gorgeous, but everywhere was so wet so we opted to stay indoors for their couple photos.  There’s plenty of rooms to choose from at Salomons including the terrace beyond the Gold Room so almost outside!

The Chefs Table

The wedding breakfast was a sharing roast option so one person on each table was designated the meat carver and had to wear a chef’s hat and apron! On the top table it was Gails dad who had the honour. There was some great moments to capture!

After speeches, the room was prepared for the evening when the couple cut their cake and kicked off the dancing along with all the children getting very excited!

All credit to Gail and Ben for taking the weather in their stride, they just relaxed and made the most of it and it was a wonderful day.

Congratulations Gail and Ben, I so enjoyed spending the day with you!
