Prestwold Hall Wedding: Highlights from my first wedding back in 2021

After several months without any weddings to photograph, I was delighted to be back in the saddle. Last weekend I photographed Rosanne and Will at their Prestwold Hall Wedding. A beautiful venue, which I have returned to several times over the years. It was wonderful to be back there for my first wedding of 2021. Following the restrictions being lifted a week ago today, Rosanne and Will were allowed 30 guests at their wedding. So, as the groom mentioned in his speech, the ones that made the cut all knew they were pretty special.

Sadly, Rosanne’s parents and siblings couldn’t be there as they are scattered across the globe in New Zealand and South Africa. This meant they were unable to travel over for the wedding as they had intended to. However Will’s dad Stephen stepped in to walk Rosanne down the aisle, which I thought was rather wonderful.

Rosanne looked stunning in her sparkling gown by Karen Willis Holmes, and hair and makeup by the talented artists at The Bridal Artists.

Venue styling

I arrived at the venue to be greeted with the friendly staff at Prestwold Hall, who are always so welcoming and helpful. And also managed to bump into Charlotte, the florist who was finishing up with the flowers on the tables. And my goodness it looked spectacular. With styling from Orange Tree Weddings, flowers from Frond & Bloom and the gorgeous cake from Helen Alborn Cakes. This was truly the dream team!

At the church

Although I have photographed several weddings at Prestwold Hall, this was my first time photographing at Prestwold Church. It rests just a stone’s throw away from the venue, and I could just cut across the lawn to arrive there in one minute just in time to greet the groom before Rosanne arrived. The vicar was known to the family, as Will’s parents attend the same church. This made for a very special ceremony for his first wedding back too as Rosanne and Will were part of the extended Parish family. I was able to get some lovely photos from the balcony during the vows. After that Rosanne and Will walked out to as much confetti as 30 guests could chuck over them and then back across the lawn to the venue to continue the celebrations. I shall share the rest in pictures. Here they are!
