An elegant wedding day with everything a couple could wish for

Danielle and Adam’s wedding day at Doddington Hall has everything a couple could wish for in a wedding.  From a beautiful venue to a horse-drawn carriage to a super cute dog called Marv.  We really couldn’t wait to share it with you.  Doddington Hall with its gardens, sculpture trail and not to mention the actual beautiful venue itself is one of our absolute favourite wedding venues to shoot at.  It always makes us happy when we get asked to shoot there.  As a result, we were understandably excitable when Adam and Danielle’s wedding day finally arrives, and boy did the day live up to our expectations.

Preparations

Arriving in the morning, we were greeted by a mildly nervous Danielle. Along with her bridesmaids and mum they spent the morning having fun and getting ready in one of the cosy on-site rooms at Doddington Hall.  Throughout the mornings festivities we eagerly await for the surprise that Danielle knows nothing about.  Her mum arranged for many a young girls dream to actually come true.  A stunning horse drawn carriage to take her to her ceremony and when her mum told her to look out the window Danielle couldn’t believe it.

Ceremony

With their ceremony in The Long Gallery, we couldn’t have been happier. This room is one of several that can be used for ceremonies at the venue.  As you can see it’s really lovely with its huge windows that overlook the perfect gardens and it is probably one of our favourite rooms for wedding ceremonies we shoot at.  Danielle and Adam opted for ivory, green and a blush pink colour scheme. The floral decorations and wedding stationary gave a beautiful and classic touch to the already elegant surroundings.

Drinks Reception & Portraits

The sunny autumn day allowed for a drinks reception in the garden enjoyed by their guests whilst we stole the couple away for some portraits.

Wedding Reception & Party

Adam & Danielle chose a traditional 3-course wedding breakfast prepared by the wonderful kitchens at Doddington Hall.  Their evening guests were treated with a range of slow-roasted meat joints, artisan bread and accompaniments, which was equally mouth-watering.
