Scaplens Court Wedding Photographs

 

Scaplen’s Court is a beautifully unique Grade I listed wedding venue by Poole Quay. After visiting the ancient building and museum we were chomping at the bit to create some Scaplens Court wedding photographs.

We arrived early on the Saturday morning at Vicky’s mother’s house bright-eyed and bushy tailed to create some gorgeous Scaplens court wedding photographs.

Scaplens Court Wedding Photographs- Bridal Preparation

The girls were merrily busying themselves in the conservatory. The ever talented Jess from Model Makeovers was taking advantage of the natural soft morning light with the wedding makeup. Vickys calm and collected mannder was only rocked when reading a card from Dan. Whatever it said, tears were only just held back!

An eye for detail had been applied to the wedding preparations. Matching pajamas with lettering across the back labelled the girls’ wedding roles. A copy of the laser engraved wooden wedding invitation sat upon the mantle piece and wedding bunting hung from the ceiling.

A pair of timeless Ruby shoos, white wedding heels with white flower detail sat in pride of place. One of Vicky’s friends patiently styled wedding hair as the hot sun played peek a boo with the clouds.

With hair and makeup complete it was time for the dresses. The two gorgeous bridesmaids wore dusty green bridesmaids dresses with a lace sweetheart neck line.

Once in their dresses Vicky had a little gift of silver charms for them both. Then it was the her turn. She was stunning in her ivory strapless dress also with a sweetheart neckline. With veil applied she looked breathtaking.

Scaplens Court Wedding Photographs- Groom Preparation

At Robert’s parent’s there were more wonderful wedding details on display. Wooden cufflinks and a wooden ring box (handmade by Rob) was entrusted to his best man. Once in all of his wedding attire he opened a gift from his wife-to-be, another very emotional moment.

At Scaplen’s Court the newlyweds and guests enjoyed a drinks reception with canapés supplied by Tickled Pig Events and a beer brewed especially for the wedding by Bournemouth Brewing Company.

A stone courtyard, Victorian kitchen and gorgeous secret garden were enjoyed by all.

The bridesmaids were busy capturing everyone on their Polaroid camera so that the pictures could be used in a signing book. Pictures were taken at various locations around the venue even venturing out to the walled garden.
