Dewsall Court, Herefordshire Wedding Photography, Tony & Ellie

Dewsall Court Wedding Photographer

I first met the bride and groom at the wedding venue itself, Dewsall Court.  Dewsall is an exclusive, idyllic, family home in the heart of the Herefordshire countryside steeped in history since its beginning in 1644.  

At the meeting Tony and Ellie asked the usual questions "If I had to pick an original trilogy what would it be Back to the Future or Indiana Jones?" a tough one…  I gave my usual advice "You need to watch Norsemen and What we do in the shadows”  A successful meeting, I knew the wedding day was going to be special!

Wedding ceremony under the outdoor canopy

The day itself was quite simple, a small intimate  wedding with close family travelling from Essex, and the Bride and Groom travelling from Yorkshire.

For the groomsmen the day started in the Dewsall Billiard room, for a relaxing game of snooker, before a stroll, a catch up, and the first beer of the day in the beautiful gardens.  All this as the bride and chief bridesmaid prepared in the main Dewsall suite, the bride’s finishing detail left out the traditional wedding shoes, instead favouring a more modern pair of white converse!

The day of the wedding was forecast for rain, with the two days either side bright sunshine but the rain held off, lucky as the civil ceremony was taking place under the garden canopy.  Once complete the bride and groom and witnesses moved into the study for the signing of the register before exiting into a shower of confetti from their family and friends.

Documenting a special day

The day went perfectly, after drinks in the ‘Hall’ it was all over to the ‘Wainhouse Barn’ for a spot of lunch, before the best-man delivered a fantastic, funny speech, I laughed along when he said end of page two of nine... it turned out this wasn't one of the jokes but it was definitely worth it.

As the evening set in the sun eventually started to shine, finally setting over the distant ‘Black Mountains’.

Overall a beautiful day for a relaxed, perfectly matched couple.
