Katy and Heath chose to have their wedding during the festive season and for me it was the perfect end to my 2015 wedding calendar.

The couple chose St Marys church on the Orchardleigh estate, a wonderfully romantic choice as the church has no electricity so is lit entirely by candles. The organ is pumped by hand and although the church is rather dark (for a photographer) it all added to the beauty of the setting. Nothing was left to chance and Katy had thought of everything, even organising blankets to ensure the guests were warm during the service.

Following the ceremony Katy and Heath were driven the short distance to Orchardleigh house in a stunning Rolls Royce whilst the guests travelled together in a vintage bus. (Katy said it wasn’t supposed to be vintage but there was something very retro about it)!

Orchardleigh house really comes alive at this time of year, roaring fires and the twinkling of christmas lights helping to create an enchanting setting for the celebrations. The usually dark hall became the hub of the party, hosting a pianist who entertained the guests while they enjoyed champagne and canapés. The speeches were held in the vestibule in front of the glowing fire and many a tear was shed (mine included)! After the wedding breakfast, the evening celebrations commenced. The merry guests spilled out into the huge house and there was something for everyone. The drawing room became a peaceful haven for some, while others found a place to play billiards, leaving the energetic to dance the night away.
