Emma got ready at her gorgeous farm house with her mum, mother in law, sister in law & 4 little bridesmaids, and the atmosphere was full of excitement. Darren got ready at the nearby Crown Hotel, which is only a few minutes walking distance to Bawtry Hall, which is a good thing as rain was threatening all day!
The ceremony was an intimate affair in small but beautiful room at the venue. complete with harp music & clean white blossom trees. During the ceremony they had several beautiful readings from friends and family. It was an emotional, personal service. Although the bride arrived in plenty of time, she kept the groom waiting an extra 10 minutes before entering to walk down the aisle, which had everyone in stiches while wondering what she was doing! The couple actually had the whole house & gardens to themselves for the whole day, so after the ceremony, guests moved outside for the family photos, then into the grounds for canapes, before into another equally gorgeous room for their wedding breakfast. They lawn games in the afternoon, and a DJ in the evening.
Emma and Darren’s wedding had so much elegance and fun. I was everything I love about weddings and so laid back. Here’s a selection of images from their gorgeous wedding! If you’re planning at Bawtry Hall, get in touch for details of my wedding photography packages!
