Louise and Andy’s big day in August was full of sunshine and day long smiles.  I absolutely loved working with them and added to that they also held their wedding at one of my favourite wedding venues, Sprivers Mansion.  I am slightly biased though as Sprivers is only one village away from where I live so it feels very much part of my local community!

The footprint of their wedding was small as the couple were both getting ready at Sprivers as well as having both the ceremony and reception at the venue.  Louise (still in her rollers) and the girls had made themselves at home in the huge huge bridal suite when I arrived and a little later Jim joined Andy and the boys in the Rose Garden Wing.

Flowers were delivered, hair and make up done and it was soon time to get into the dress.  Keep scrolling to read more.

It was such a beautiful day, perfect for some fun with the boys in the lovely Sprivers gardens

There were a lot of buttons for the brides sister to do up on Louises dress and it took much longer than they originally thought but there was much celebration when it was done!

The guests started to take their seats for the outdoor ceremony.  Sprivers is surrounded by parkland and woodland and is the perfect secluded country setting.

One of my favourite parts of the day is when a dad see’s his daughter for the first time and this reaction didn’t disappoint.  You can clearly see how proud he was of his gorgeous daughter.  What you can’t see is Louise shedding a few tears!

Bridesmaid love!

The staircase at Sprivers is one of my favourite parts of the house, the light is always amazing!  This was a genuine documentary shot of Louise leaving for the ceremony, no posing involved!

Louise wound her way through the gardens arriving at the ceremony through the big wrought iron gate. The couple took their vows in the Yellow Georgian Room while the guests looked on from the garden.

Confetti was thrown and Pimms was served for the reception held on the lawn.

Before heading into their wedding breakfast we headed off for some quiet time and a few relaxed couple shots.

It was a beautiful summers evening so we took advantage of the sunshine as it started to set to create something a little different for the couple before they danced the night away.
