Weddings at Great Fosters are always a great occasion and this one was no exception. I’ve been lucky enough now to have captured around half a dozen weddings here and never tire of it, and despite the wet start to proceedings, Mel and Andy’s big day was another fantastic occasion.
My day started with the bridal party who were being looked after by the excellent Amy Lacey of BeDazzling, who once again showed why she’s always in demand for hair and make-up. The ceremony took place in the Orangery, before the guests retreated to the conservatory for some drinks. Thankfully the rain had decided to subside by this point so everyone was free to make use of some of the stunning grounds that Great Fosters offers.
A meal with a twist.
The wedding breakfast was served up back in the Orangery and with the deserts ready to be eaten, the waiters suddenly burst into song and provided some great entertainment for the next 15 minutes or so as they rattled through a range of different songs. Singing waiters are a huge source of entertainment and I’d highly recommend them for any wedding (These waiters were provided by www.singing-waiters.co.uk).
Once things had died down, the speeches followed and then a few more drinks were had in the late afternoon sun before it was time for the cake cutting and the first dance. A superb day all round, which was excellently coordinated by toastmaster Iain Pompei, someone I’d definitely recommend if you’re looking for someone to make sure your wedding day goes off nice and smoothly.
Here’s some of the images from throughout the day. If you’d like to enquire about my availability for your wedding at Great Fosters (or any other venue), please feel free to get in touch via the contact form at the top of the page.
