A sneaky peek of Andrew & Katie's Wedding - Dumbleton Hall, Worcestershire

Here's a sneaky peek at some of the wedding photographs from Andrew and Katie's big day, held at Dumbleton Hall, Worcestershire, on March 1st 2014.

It was a great day with what must have been the best weather of 2014 so far. It was a particular pleasure to photograph as I do a lot of voluntary work for St Philips and St James Church in Leckhampton, Cheltenham, where the wedding took place.

After the touching ceremony and a few photos outside, we all made our way across the beautiful Cotswold countryside to the spectacular setting of Dumbleton Hall. It provided the perfect backdrop.

A delicious wedding breakfast followed the group photos and even I got to sample all three courses, a rare treat, especially when a large slice of chocolate fudge cake was bought out to me.  What a kick it had. It was certainly needed too if the speeches were anything to go by - with three best men, poor Andrew was in for a hard time. Surprisingly, they were relatively kind to him, it was Katie's Dad that took the prize for the longest speech - 22 minutes I heard.

The day was rounded off perfectly with the first dance, which was very touching. As I left I got the feeling the party was only just getting going!

Pre-wedding Meeting at Dumbleton Hall

Enjoyed a very productive meeting on Saturday with Katie and Andrew, who are getting married at Dumbleton Hall on March 1st. Thoroughly enjoyed familiarising myself with the venue and its grounds, something I always like to do before any wedding. Found some lovely spots for group and private photographs, including a very large old stone window that seemed to be sitting derelict and forgotten about under a beautiful sprawling oak tree. There's also the most magnificent lake setting, not to mention a formal tiered garden area. Perfect for getting some elevation into the pictures.

All in all it should be a great day and a good chance to add to my ever growing portfolio.
