I have worked at the Wasing Estate on a few occasions. Wasing Park is set in a lovely surrounding with fields and lots of green areas. I have always liked the choice that couples have. From getting married in the Garden room, the Parish church or the Victorian summerhouse. The later, only recommended in summer though! In this occasion, Sammy and David had chosen to get married in the Parish church. The Church is lovely, small and quaint. I really like it. I find it a shame that the priests do not allow photography from the front, especially as in this day and age our cameras are totally silent. But this is their decision and we do the best that we can to document as much as possible from the back during the service. My day started seeing guests arriving and David working with the groomsmen on the last minute preparations. I then went to see Sammy as she was getting ready to walk to the church. It was a lovely wintery day, not too cold and dry, which is always a bonus.
The ceremony was beautiful and there was some nice light coming in through the windows. After the ceremony, the guests lined up for some snow-fetti! This must be a first for me, some confetti to mimic snow. It looked lovely as guests were showering the bride and groom with it. We took some family photos and portraits straight after. There is little light in winter and we needed to make most of it. After this the bride and groom joined their guests in the garden room for drinks and canapés.
The wedding breakfast was served at the Castle Barn. The bride and groom had decided to have the speeches first, which is something that I see more and more at weddings. I think that it is a good idea, that way all the speakers can enjoy their meal and drink without worrying about their speech. After some lovely and funny speeches, the food was served. After the meal, guests were invited to the garden room while the barn was prepared for the evening party. The first dance followed and them the groom went on stage to play a few songs with this band.
It was a lovely day. Sammy and David are a lovely couple, friendly, approachable, funny and caring. I genuinely had a great time with them and I enjoyed documenting their wedding day. Below are some images from their wedding day, I really hope that you enjoy them. Please feel free to leave me a comment at the end, I would love to hear your thoughts. If you are considering a wedding at Wasing Park – A barn wedding venue, I would love to hear from you (or any other venue for that matter). Thanks for reading!
