Eaves Hall Wedding
Eaves Hall on a rainy day in November was anything but dreary. Nas got ready at The Lodge at the bottom of the lane that leads up to the stunning wedding venue, along with his Groomsmen and a Groomsmaid (credit to the couple for giving us the same-sex wedding alternative to ‘bridesmaid’).
Sarah of The Rose Boutique lovingly decorated the venue with the most stunning floral arrangements (complete with pheasant feathers – it looked amazing!) while the boys spent the morning preparing themselves for the big day. She then delivered bouquets for the Groomsmaids and pinned on the button holes to the bridal party. What I love about Sarah is her attention to detail and how she really takes care of the presentation on the day. This is one of the many things that sets her apart from other florists in the wedding industry!
I love that Nas and Kevin chose to walk down the aisle together, in front of their supportive family and friends who were all so eager to see these two tie the knot. The Grooms had placed candles at the end of the aisle too as a nod to both their Dads who are no longer with us, which was a lovely touch. The well thought out readings during the ceremony were emotional, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house as Kevin’s voice cracked through his vows.
Following a beautiful ceremony and a downpour of rain it was time for the group shot. With the help of a loud, ginger Scotsman (thanks John) we got everyone outside under the shelter of the entrance while we waited for the break in the clouds so we could get a good view of all the guests. The two children took every opportunity they could to run towards the puddles, but their ninja-like parents caught them!
We then took the couple away for some time together in the grounds of Eaves Hall, not only so they have some lovely pictures to hang on their walls at home, but also so they could have a little time together to soak in the moment before heading back to their guests. What I enjoy about these snippets of the day is that the couple weren’t overly posed, they did what came naturally to them and rather than show off staged moments we get to show them as they just simply went for a walk and had a cuddle (and a sneaky smooch!)
For entertainment the couple settled for nothing less than an amazing string quartet for the ceremony and pre-reception, and then DFC took them through the night keeping their dance floor full – credit has to go to Kevin for bringing the BEST dance moves we’ve ever seen at a wedding! I also jumped in to give a little dance tuition!
Thank you for having us guys, its was an absolute pleasure to spend your day with you!
We look forward to many more photographs of you both growing older together.
