We have been waiting a while to get our hands on these pictures so we are really excited to be able to share them with everyone. We are lucky to have had a year full of beautiful weddings and lovely people and this couple are definitely towards the top of the list. The bride and groom looked happier than any other couple we had seen (possibly ever) and it was an absolute pleasure seeing their garden ceremony under blue skies and blazing sunshine. We hope you enjoy these images as much as we have and do have a look at photographer James Powell's full blog post here.
We will be holding just one official viewing weekend next year which will be over Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd January 2017. This will be the only opportunity to see the house in all its glory with a 1-2-1 guided tour and an informal chat over a piece of cake. If you would love to hold your wedding here with us or would like to have a look at the space for a potential party, corporate event or retreat then please email firstname.lastname@example.org to book a slot. We look forward to meeting you in the new year and hope to see you looking as happy as this at your own wedding here! c/o Luis Holden Photography
We are really pleased to see that the traditional wedding season is extending into the chillier parts of the year as we think that an autumn or winter wedding can be stunning. Not only do the colours of autumn provide an ideal starting point for colour palettes but the colder days provide a perfect excuse for roaring fires, hearty food, luxurious fabrics and and cosy candelit evenings. Whilst blazing sunshine may be unlikely, a mild, bright day in November can be a beautiful thing and gives wonderful light for photographs in the early morning and late afternoon. We are all for alternative ideas when it comes to weddings and love the idea of opting for a wedding dress in a dark colour in heavily embroidered fabric just like the one shown here from our Knot + Pop styled shoot.

As this year draws to a close we thought that we would share a little album of images of the house and gardens on sunnier days. Although we do actually still have a few roses out the gardens here really do come into their own in mid-summer. We have recently had our lovely formal pond re-lined and it now contains new waterlillies and until a few weeks ago an awful lot of fish. Sadly every single one was eaten by Mr Heron over the course of two days. The pond still looks pretty though...
