Froyle Park Wedding Photographs

We arrived on a gorgeous misty morning to create these Froyle Park wedding photographs at Arianne and Richard’s big day. We were excited about shooting in the gorgeous natural low light that this time of year offers. Combined with the deep oranges of the autumn leaves, a visually spectacular venue and such a lovely couple as Richard and Arianne we were in our element.

Froyle Park Wedding Photographs of Bridal Preparation

Arianne and her Bridesmaids had taken over a two bedroom residence located off to one side of the manor house. Bride and bridesmaids were merrily preparing for the big day ahead. The girls already looked stunning, they were calm, relaxed and dressed in matching peacock silk kimono dressing gowns. In the lovely warm surroundings they speedily moved from one room to the other, having hair and makeup expertly styled by the girls from Its All About Me and Lauren Overend.

Arianne was presented with a photo book which started her day long infectious smile. Next her gorgeous wedding flowers arrived, soft pinks and greens were beautifully presented as their wonderful smell filled the room. We could tell that the floral displays would feature quite heavily in Arianne & Richard’s Froyle Park wedding photographs.

The girls then moved to a much grander suite overlooking Froyle Park’s gardens. Arianne’s gorgeous detailed wedding dress was hung on the four-poster bed. A bottle of Gold Prosecco was opened and the bridesmaids were helped into their Greco Roman bridesmaids dresses.

For a moment I thought I had slipped into a fairy tale, quite taken aback by how classically stunning the bridesmaids and Arianne’s mother were looking. Then Arianne was helped into her wedding dress and I decided I was in fact dreaming - she looked breath-taking.

Froyle Park Wedding Photographs of Groom Preparation

The gents were busy helping the florist (Richard’s Mum) with the final touches. This included delivering flower arrangements to the Grand Ballroom and dressing the Pagoda.  With this done they headed upstairs to get changed into their wedding attire. Richard donned his super sharp tailored blue suit from Velsvoir of London.  Once in his outfit complete with gold pocket watch, cuff links and Tissot watch the exceptionally dapper groom was ready to head back downstairs to welcome his arriving guests.

Froyle Park Wedding Photographs of Wedding Ceremony

The ceremony took place in the oak paneled Great Hall. Florists Beyond the Gate had been busy most of the morning. The great hall was adorned with a floral spectacle, from mantle piece sprays to balustrade runners, pink roses and thistles filled the space with subtle colour and smell.

With candles lit and the fire burning the bridesmaids led Arianne and her father down the stairs and aisle. Richard stood, looking slightly nervous at the front awaiting her arrival. During the civil ceremony the couple made their promises to one another and were declared husband and wife. A lovely balance of tears and laughter amongst the wedding guests added to the almost tangible feelings of love in the room.

With the register signed guests were invited to remain for a short Christian blessing before the newlyweds walked back down the aisle.

Froyle Park Wedding Photographs of Drinks Reception

Two members of the Brightside band played saxophone and acoustic guitar while the happy couple and guests enjoyed drinks and canapes. Everyone braved the chill in the air outside and gathered to shower the newlyweds in confetti.

Froyle Park Wedding Photographs of Wedding Breakfast

After a few photographs in the gardens the guests were asked to take their places in the Grand Ballroom. Again the florists had obviously been hard at work decorating tables, entrance way and wedding cake.

The new Mr and Mrs were announced into the wedding breakfast and entered the room to rapturous applause. With the now seated top table grinning from ear to ear the speeches were introduced . Arianne’s father started things off followed by the ever dapper Richard and then his best man brought them to a close. There was a point that we thought that a few of the guests would actually lose their breath through laughing so hard!

The newlyweds and guests were then treated to a mouth watering wedding breakfast provided by Tapenade wedding caterers. While food and drink were enjoyed the brightside wedding band and Party Dexx set up ready for the evening’s festivities.

Froyle Park Wedding Photographs of Wedding Evening

Underneath the night sky Arianne and Richard took some time outside while the ballroom was turned around. Richard had received a wedding gift of cigars which he then generously shared around the guests. Inside the purple room his father pretended to play the automatic piano and guests enjoyed the warmth of teas and coffees.

Back inside the Grand Ballroom the dance floor had finally been revealed. The newlyweds expertly spun around for their first dance soon to be joined by many of the guests. The photo booth from Lily Bean Photoooths opened and fancy dress was passed around.  We left everyone dancing the night away but not before taking two minutes for an outdoor shot of the happy couple in front of the fountain.
