Batch Country House Wedding
Louise & Vince’s wedding Batch Country House wedding took place on a fairly chilly and slightly damp December day, but it was such wonderful, winter wedding! The two of them were so smiley and happy and it was really lovely to see two people so excited to be married.
Their ceremony took place in The Church of St Mary and St Peter in Winford, on the outskirts of Bristol. It’s a beautiful old church and I hadn’t shot a wedding there for a while so it was lovely to be back. Vince looked very dashing in his kilt (representing his Scottish heritage) and I love the grin on his face when he sees Louise looking gorgeous as she walked down the aisle with her dad. My favourite bit of the ceremony was Vince pulling the order of service from his sporran which had them both giggling.
A vintage Rolls Royce whisked them both away to their reception venue, Batch Country House, near Weston Super Mare. With a lot of cloud cover and the evening drawing in very early, we launched straight in to their couples wedding photos, followed by the group pictures, and it was incredibly lucky that it started to pour down the second we were finished!
They transformed their wedding breakfast room in to a winter wonderland and it looked beautiful with fairy lights, vintage books and winter foliage. They even made games for the guests to enjoy – Guess Who, with a photo of each wedding guest instead of the usual characters, was a particular favourite!
After the wedding breakfast (what could be better than a Christmas dinner for a winter wedding!) we headed outside so all the guests could light sparklers and have some fun, before heading back in for a few more drinks ahead of the cake cutting and first dance. We snuck out for five minutes to take a couple of nighttime backlit wedding photos to mix things up a bit! They had choreographed a routine for the first dance which went really well and then all the guests were up and dancing for the band. It was a fab, fun day!
