WILL AND EMMA’S WEDDING
Pennard House is the perfect location for a wedding. It’s like getting ready in a dream! Wake up in fancy house that still feels like your home then get ready with all your best people. Check out the gorgeous details: the ornaments and incredible hand painted wallpaper.
The guys stayed in the garden in teepees and got ready in a room in the house. They were outside for drinks and to greet guests.
Emma had a room for hair and make up with her bridesmaids. They could see the guys and the guests from the window. Oh yes, about windows... we opened them up for some fresh air and a wasp flew in. A bit of vigorous wasp swatting resulted in a broken window, but thankfully the staff at Pennard House are equal parts helpful and friendly in this kind of situation.
Guests took their seats on the lawn for the ceremony. When she was ready Emma made her way downstairs to her Dad and Grandma. They walked out round the back of the house, then down the aisle. Will cried! The mood was lifted beautifully by their registrar who try as she might could not pronounce their new surname. She handled with such grace and was able to laugh at her self, which put the whole crowd at ease and set the tone for the rest of the celebrations. Butterflies flitted around as Will and Emma said their vows and signed the papers.
Freshly married they headed back down the aisle and guests threw confetti. Then we all followed them round to the back of the house for drinks and photos. There was time to chat over canapés before wandering round to the Coach House for dinner.
Seated upstairs guests were served speeches in between the courses of the wedding breakfast. They were hilarious, especially Best Man George. He was prepared with print-outs of embarrassing childhood photos of himself and Will. But really got everyone giggling as he teased Will and Emma’s fathers.
Downstairs in the old stables the dance floor was ready and waiting. Tristan, a friend of the Bride and Groom started the evening off performing a few songs before Will and Emma had their first dance.
We set up the photo booth in one of the stable stalls and could keep an eye on all the dance floor fun. The night ended on a high for us as Emma gathered all her single ladies and threw her bouquet from the staircase. We love having a front row seat on these moments of madness!
