Victoria & Sam’s Wedding at The Grange
On one of the hottest days of the year, I joined Sam and Victoria for their wedding day at The Grange at Belluton. This to be one of the most thoughtful, personal and meaningful wedding days that I’ve been to. Every second was filled with such emotion that it had everyone on the brink of tears (if not just openly bawling!). The ceremony had even me crying: the bride and groom made promises to each other which were just filled with so much love it was amazing to be a part of. Afterwards they were welcomed as the new Mr & Mrs by one of the longest and most enthusiastic confetti tunnels I’ve ever set up and made for some great wedding photos! In the gorgeous vintage car they were whisked away to the Grange at Belluton for their reception.
And WOW. Arriving back to the reception venue really took your breath away. A marquee was set up in the incredible grounds of the Georgian stone house over looking the Pensford viaduct and Victoria and Sam’s attention to detail was phenomenal. Everything had been thought of: a donut wall, love letters, flip flops for guests with tired feet and tissues for anyone feeling a bit emotional and more! The decorations for the wedding breakfast were gorgeous and had been hand chosen and painstakingly selected by Victoria from vintage and charity shops. The vast selection of blue chintz chinaware looked so effective and each place setting was hand decorated as a table favour for each guest to take home with their name on.
This was one of the hottest days of the year, so taking photos outside was tricky due to the harsh light and the heat! But we made use of the grounds and found a few shaded spots, before heading out later after Victoria had changed in to her second (amazing!) wedding dress in the evening to make the most of the incredible golden hour.
One of the most thoughtful touches was the surprise entertainment the groom booked for the bride: they were serenaded by a classical singer during the day and a jazz singer a little later on. To cap off this incredible day, the bride and groom’s friend sung for them before they launched in to their first dance and the party really kicked off. There was some amazing dance moves!
What a wonderful, wonderful day!
