Teresa & David’s winter wedding the week before Christmas, was my last wedding for 2011 and what a wedding it was! They had their ceremony & reception at Great Fosters in Egham, Surrey. For those of you not familiar with Great Fosters, it was built in 1550 as a royal hunting lodge and has become one of the prime wedding venues in the UK, boasting picturesque landscaped gardens and beautiful interiors. With a rustic Tithe barn, Orangery & Conservatory and the hotel itself, we were spoilt for choice when it came to Teresa & David’s couple photos. The 19th of December turned out to be a bit of a rainy day, but that didn’t dampen Teresa & David’s spirits or the beauty of their day. Their ceremony took place in the Orangery and the wedding breakfast followed in the Tithe Barn, which had been transformed into a candle lit wonderland of red Chinese lanterns, photos of Teresa & David’s travels together and sparkling Christmas decorations (it was the week before Christmas afterall!). Having a bride who wore two wedding dresses – one for the traditional Chinese ceremony in the morning & toasting of the tables later followed by a beautiful lace Lusan Mandongus dress to walk down the aisle in, was a real treat!
Highlights of the day definitely included the “It’s raining men” video Teresa & friends had filmed and played to the guests after the speeches, as well as Teresa & David’s first dance…it was epic – I’m talking lifts, back-to-back poses, complicated turns – it really was ‘first dance gold’!
Teresa & David, thank you for sharing your wonderful day with us, I’m very happy to hear that you love your photos! Thanks to the lovely Delia who joined me to get some candid shots of the guests. I would also like to thank the staff at Great Fosters, who looked after us and made us feel very welcome. I look forward to my next Great Fosters wedding in Summer 2012!
