It was lovely to go back to Oakwood House for Charlotte & Matt's wedding, where I was assisting Mykey Day Photography for the day. Having been to conferences at this venue beforehand I was keen to go for a wedding this time around, and it proved to be an ideal venue for this purpose. Again it's such a shame that it won't be continuing in this regard beyond the summer of 2019.
Charlotte & Matt had a great day, and the weather was truly lovely considering it was well into the autumn in mid October. There was a definite relaxed atmosphere in the morning as Matt and his groomsmen got ready and mingled with guests in the bar, while Charlotte and her bridesmaids prepared in the large bridal suite amongst the many hotel rooms at the venue.
After the ceremony, everyone was keen to get outside and enjoy the good weather, with a confetti toss and group photos followed by some lovely shots of the happy couple in the grounds and around the building before everyone headed inside for the wedding breakfast. The magician they had both hired to entertain their guests between courses and through the evening was definitely well-received, though if I'm honest sadly I've forgotten his name!
The speeches as always were a good giggle, and revealed some rather juicy anecdotes and stories about the poor groom, courtesy of the best man! Charlotte & Matt's wedding cake was certainly a talking piece - a towering 4 tier tempered chocolate masterpiece, which they cut before taking to the dance floor with their guests as the party began and the celebrations continued into the night. A great day for a lovely couple!
