Country Wedding Bridal Preparation Photographs
Tom began his country wedding photographs with Georgina and her girls at Manor hair and beauty Salon in Tur Langton, Leicestershire. With six beautiful bridesmaids there was a buzz of excited anticipation flying around as hair and make-up was styled. Surprisingly Georgina seemed to be the most relaxed of all of the girls. They were now whizzing between the two levels of the beauty salon, only stopping for the occasional wedding morning selfie. All the ladies wore hand dyed pink dressing gowns with names printed on the back in gold script.
The Salon girls skills were amazing and the bridesmaids were transformed in what seemed like no time at all. With the sun shining brightly outside and Georgina now sporting wedding hair and a veil it was time to leave.
Country Wedding Marquee Photographs
In the garden stood a huge white wedding marquee the Inside was decorated with ivy around the roof line. On each table were huge round balloons full of glittery hearts. Small glass bottle stood on wooden slices with various county wedding flowers. The tables were named after places the couple hold dear to there hearts. Handmade place names were written in golden script on pink and purple watercolour paper. The same design was used on table plan and bride and groom’s cushions.
Outside the marquee Georgina presented her bridesmaids with gifts of silver heart shaped rings, then entertaining them with a dance in the sunshine.
Inside the house the gorgeous wedding flowers from Paisley Flower Company were protected from the heat of the sun. Georgina had chosen a bouquet of wild country flowers in pinks and blues with sprigs of mint.
Wedding Morning Preparation Photographs at Home
Parents and guests were in various states of readiness, with the morning logistical planning taking pace in the heart of the home, the kitchen. The smell of mint permeated the air as vats of Pimms were expertly prepared.
Tom went for an explore, discovering Georgina’s stunning custom silver Jimmy Choo bridal shoes. These works of art were finished with a gold plate on the sole displaying an engraving of the wedding date. For some reason they seemed to look amazing hanging from the family’s rescued deer head’s antlers.
The bridesmaids next had to bravely adjust the lengths of their pink Greco-Roman bridesmaids dresses. Georgia’s brother arrived looking exceptionally dapper in his blue three piece suit with pink accessories.
Upstairs, Georgina’s stunning white A line wedding dress hung in a window. The permeating light enhanced the lace detailing on the bodice and bolero. Still calm and happy Georgina was helped into her dress by the bridesmaids Now looking even more stunning you couldn’t help notice her father loosing the power of speech for a minute upon seeing her.
The group of bridesmaids now looked jaw dropping in their dresses and left for the church up the road. Georgina, her father and chief bridesmaid had a little time to take some weight off before the much anticipated ceremony.
Country Wedding Groom Preparation Photographs
I found the gents a short distance away in the Leicestershire countryside at Foxton Locks Lodges. Wedding ribbon had been skilfully added to the sparkling clean silver Land Rover. The father’s of the bride and groom arrived to take the grooms party for breakfast at Bowen Stores café. Belly’s full, they all headed back to Foxton to ready themselves for what would be an amazing country wedding in the sunshine.
The groomsmen wore Ted Baker blue suits with pink ties and the groom wore a textured wool bled hand made suit by Robert Old & Son of Bournemouth. With every one dressed and button holes from the Paisley Flower Company in place the next stop was the Crown pub in Tur Langton. Located opposite St Andrews church, the groom and his best men greeted guests arriving and enjoyed a pre- wedding pint. With a close eye on his watch Matt and his groomsmen made their way across the road and into the church.

The red brick soon filled with guests and first to arrive from the bridal party were the six bridesmaids. Harry the bride’s brother was kept very busy chatting to the waiting bridesmaids and even helped the bell ringer with his job while he read the paper!
Looking heavenly, Georgina arrived with her father. After a brief pause outside the church the bridal party readied themselves to make their entrance. Georgina and her father led the way with bridesmaids following in there floating pastel pink dresses.
After a traditional church wedding service with reading and hymns the couple made their vows, exchanged rings and were married. Outside the couple’s French bulldog Huxley waited for them to come out of the church as husband and wife. The church emptied and the newly-weds walked down the road with all of their guest following. It was just a short distance to reach Georgina’s parent’s house.
Country Wedding Garden Marque Reception
Inside the house the guests were welcomed in a receiving line by the new Mrs and Mrs Suttle and their families. Once into the garden they were treated to music from the Kibworth Brass Band while they enjoyed a drinks reception on the lawn.
With everyone in the sunlit garden we gathered them together to shower the bride and groom with confetti as they too entered the garden.
Wedding breakfast was announced and every one had taken there seats it was time for the speeches. The father of the bride started off the laughter and tears followed by the groom and finally his best man. The mouth watering wedding breakfast was supplied by Thomas The Caterer and enjoyed in the shelter from the sun by the light and airy marque.
Country Wedding Evening Entertainment Photographs
We stole the bride and groom away to a wooded area at the bottom of the garden for some couple photographs. We were soon joined by the excited bridesmaids and groomsmen. It was then back to the marquee to cut the cake. A three tired creation from Gardeners Cakery, the top tier bore a ‘Mr and Mrs Suttle’ gold lettering topper.
With cake cut everyone was wondering what was behind one end of the marquee. Some of the guests had been told it was the kitchen, despite the food coming in from the opposite end!
We managed to get inside for the big reveal of the dance floor and captured the guests reaction to the checker board dance floor and star cloth ceiling. The happy took there first dance together with the dance floor to themselves before beckoning the guests to join them.
Just when you thought that was it, Harry, Georgina’s brother informed us that he had another surprise, a little fireworks display. The bride and groom took center stage outside the marquee with the guests viewing the display from the windows behind.
This country wedding was a truly wonderful day to capture so full of beauty and love.
