Lydia & Peter’s Davenport House Wedding
At the end of August I had the great pleasure of filming Lydia and Peter’s wonderful day at Davenport House. This was my first visit to Davenport House, and hopefully not my last. It’s a beautiful venue, situated in the quaint village of Worfield.
To start the day I met Lydia and her bridesmaids over at Davenport House, in the wedding prep cottage, The Stables. I love how they have the prep rooms away from the hustle and bustle of the main house. This helps to create a really chilled, calm morning, ahead of a busy day. It was soon time for me to head over to St Peter’s Church for the arrival of our wonderful groom.
Peter and his groomsmen soon arrived, and they headed into the nearby pub for a couple of pints before the ceremony. It was a gorgeous summers day so Peter and the guests took great advantage of the beer garden. Shortly after the guests began to arrive and they all then began making their way up to the church. Just a short walk along the road, the guests enjoyed a little stroll in the sunshine, before taking their seats inside the church.
Before long it was time for Lydia’s arrival. And she looked absolutely amazing, with a super proud dad to escort her.
St Peter’s Church Wedding Ceremony
Lydia and Peter tied the knot in a beautiful church ceremony. They even chose to have my favourite wedding reading to be read during the ceremony. When they were officially husband and wife, they walked up the aisle, with faces full of glee. While they took it all in their guests lined up ready for a confetti shot.
Davenport House Wedding Reception
After an awesome confetti line Lydia, Peter and their guests all made their way over to Davenport House. Canapés were served, along with drinks, and guests enjoyed some music from Alex Ohm. While every one was relaxing and enjoying the weather I captured the atmosphere. It was soon time for some portraits, Charlotte (from Indie Love) and I stole the bride and groom away for a beautiful portrait session. Davenport House has some wonderful backdrops for us to work with, and it was awesome!
It was soon time for the wedding breakfast and speeches. Lydia and Peter opted to have speeches first, before dinner. The speeches were wonderful, dad, Peter and best man did a great job! There was laughter, and a few tears, and every one enjoyed the speeches. The speeches are always one of my favourite parts of the day.
After a delicious wedding breakfast the guests all piled back out onto the lawns. Alex Ohm continued playing, and the atmosphere was wonderful. As the sun began to set Charlotte and I spied an opportunity for some more couples shots. And I am SO GLAD we did. Those shots turned out to be my favourites of the day, possibly even of the whole of 2021!
Lydia and Peter put together a wonderful wedding day, and I hope they have the most incredible life together.
Laura manages to capture all the little, candid moments that most people wouldn’t notice and the result is so lovely. She perfectly captured our day and was so much fun to have there on the day. She got the balance right between having fun with us to get the shots we wanted but also blending into the background so we often didn’t even know she was there.
