Westonbirt House Wedding


A Westonbirt House Wedding

Towards the end of last year I had the pleasure of heading off to the Cotswolds to photograph Rupinder and Barry's Westonbirt House wedding.  Westonbirt is a gorgeous part of the world with the majority of people knowing the area for the Arboretum but nestled just of the main road behind the gates and down the winding driveway lies Westonbirt House.  It's easy to say 'house' but it doesn't really do any justice to this venue, there's the amazing grounds and the stunning architecture of the house itself, it simply is a dream venue.Rupinder got ready at the nearby Hare and Hounds so I started my day there to capture a few pictures of her getting ready with the help of her friend and bridesmaid before jumping into the car driven by her brother for the short trip to Westonbirt House,The ceremony was held in the stunning Library followed by a drinks reception and canapes in the Reading Room and the wedding breakfast served in the Great Hall.  Oh, maybe I should mention that Rupinder and Barry decided to bring in their own caterers to provide a fantastic Indian banquet for all their wedding guests.Ill leave you to have a look through some of my favourite images from their wedding day and as always feel free to leave a comment if the mood takes you.Westonbirt School HouseAs you make your way down the winding drive you are suddenly greeted with this stunning building, once you get inside it's equally as impressive.The Library at Westonbirt HouseIndian Wedding dressbride putting on a braceletbride putting on ear-rings before her wedding at westonbirt houseClose up of bride's henna tattooI loved the colours of Rupinder's wedding dress.picture of the bride before her wedding at westonbirt school housebride getting ready at Hare and Hounds Tetburyportrait of the bride before her weddingwait at westonbirt house for the bride to arrivebridal car arriving at Westonbirt SchoolThe reception at westonbirt school houseThe Grand Hall is a wonderful spot for a wedding reception.Tables setup for wedding reception inside the Grand Hall at Westonbirtgroom waiting for the bridebride and bridesmaids walking down the aisleGetting married in the library at westonbirt houseWestonbirt House Wedding ceremonyexchanging the wedding ringsWestonbirt House Wedding 02Westonbirt House Wedding 03getting married at westonbirtsigning the marriage registerwedding couple in the grounds of westonbirt housefoggy evening in westonbirtAs the evening drew in the fog rolled in across the grounds and I was lucky enough to be able to persuade Rupinder and Barry to brave the chill for a quick photograph.foggy night for a westonbirt weddingwedding speeches inside the grand hallwedding speechesmore wedding speeches at westonbirtWestonbirt House Wedding 05laughter during the wedding speechesWestonbirt House Wedding 06more wedding speechesdj setup in the library at westonbirt housewedding cheesecakeThe happy couple were escorted into the Library by a couple of drummers before cutting the wedding cake made from cheese.drummers inside the librarycutting the wedding cakechildren playing with the confettihappy looking wedding guestsAt a wedding some people shy away from the dancefloor........others don't!wedding guests on the dancefloorguests on the dancefloorThere was even an impromptu guest appearance from Panjabi MC who happened to be a wedding guest.panjabi mc at a weddingbride and groom dancingmother and son on the dancefloorA Westonbirt House Weddingbride and groom inside westonbirt housejust married at westonbirt housewedding photographs inside the grand hall at westonbirtIf you are having a Westonbirt House Wedding and are looking for a wedding photographer then please get in touch as I'd love to be a part of your special day.
