Penton Park Wedding – Anna & Alex

Penton Park Wedding – Anna & Alex

Penton Park

Woo-hoo! Congratulations lovely Anna & Alex who had the most wonderful wedding Saturday at Penton Park in Hampshire. I absolutely adore Penton Park and the team who work there so was delighted when Anna and Alex got in touch last year and asked if I was free to capture their day.

Although they weren’t able to have their wedding ceremony outside like they’d planned due to the rain, the inside of the house is so flippin’ beautiful that no one minded one bit. Then, as if by magic, after their ceremony the sun appeared and everyone was able to enjoy the canapes and drinks out on the lawn in front of the gorgeous house. Anna & Alex had guests from every corner of the Earth attend, a true testament of how lovely they are and how many close friends they’re amassed over the years.

Instead of a traditional sit down meal, Anna & Alex selected to have ‘bowl food’ – where every guest is given 3 different smallish bowls of food such a salmon and pasta or chicken and bacon. It encouraged everyone to mingle and chat more as they weren’t stuck on one seat during dinner; such a lovely idea which I’ll be mentioning to future clients looking for something a little different at meal time. After some hilarious speeches inside the main hallway, the evening party kicked off when the cake of cheese was cut, and everyone danced away as the sun went down.

What an absolutely wonderful day, thank you so much for having me along! It was a total pleasure.

St Giles House

It’s so wonderful when I get to explore and shoot at a venue I’ve never been to before; it certainly gets the creative juices flowing and St Giles House is one that I will definitely be hoping to go back to! I adore the decor that runs throughout the stately house with the exposed brick mixed in with the antique paintings; it’s like a fabulous mix of the old and new. The gardens are huge and expanding, with 360 views all around and without doubt, the most beautiful bridal prep room I’ve ever seen.

Nilay & Andy’s day was beautiful – the house, the styling, the gardens…just a wonderful day of gorgeousness. The weather was perfect so guests got to enjoy the grounds and to sip champagne in the sunshine before going in for a wonderful 3 course meal. We even got a golden hour sunset which we were sure to take full advantage of.

Thank you for having Dan and I along, we loved every minute. Congratulations you lovely twosome!

Thanks to Dan too, some of these photos are his.
