GEORGE & MARGARET
Having only met Margaret once as she is from the USA, and not having met George at all before the big day, I didn’t really know what to expect as I travelled to Homewood Park Hotel. But when I got there, I immediately knew it was going to be a fantastic day and I loved being a part of it. I met Margaret and her many family and friends who had travelled across the pond in her room at the hotel. At one point, I counted 22 people in the room, but it was all very well organised by the bride’s aunty. Margaret had no less than 6 bridesmaids and 4 house girls (an American tradition), so there were a lot of faces to make up and hair to perfect for Christy and Abi who were on hair & makeup duties.
“We have so enjoyed going through all the photos with each other and sharing them out with our family members. They are truly stunning and a testament to your talent of capturing the moment!”
While the girls were getting ready, I headed down the corridor to poke my head in the boys room where it was complete chaos! Luckily they managed to pull everything together and got their suits on with five minutes to spare. Meanwhile, back in the girls room, everyone sat around for a group prayer before the car turned up and it was time to go. Typically, in true British style, it started to rain as Margaret arrived at St James’ Church in Trowbridge. Luckily there was an umbrella on hand! The church was absolutely stunning and was the perfect place for the traditional Christian ceremony. As the newlyweds came out of the church, the weather had dried up which made for a great confetti throw before heading back to Homewood Park near Bath.
When we arrived at Homewood Park Hotel, it was still pouring but it soon dried up in time for some group and romantic shots around the grounds before everyone sat down for food, prayer and speeches. To everyone’s joy, the bride and groom then played Mr and Mrs which was a barrel of laughs, followed by a cutting of the cake. The evening began with a first dance from the newlyweds, which led into a father daughter dance and lastly, a mother son dance. While everyone carried on partying, we headed outside for some night time shots to end the evening.
Thank you so much for everything. We couldn’t have asked for anyone better to be a part of our special day!
