Victoria & Chris at Halswell House Weddings
Another fabulous wedding for me at Halswell House! Not that I’m complaining, because it is always a pleasure to be there and such a great venue to hold a wedding. Unusually for me, this wedding took place on a Tuesday which was a refreshing change. The fact that it wasn’t a Saturday somehow made the day feel more relaxed and chilled out, although I have a feeling that is more to do with Victoria & Chris’s planning!
A beautiful sunny (but breezy) day welcomed Victoria & Chris’s guests to Somerset – a fine day for a wedding! The girls were getting ready in the Reed Room which is a lovely room with loads of light streaming in, perfect for the bridal preps. Victoria looked stunning in her Justin Alexander wedding gown!
The ceremony took place in the beautiful Blue Ballroom, which is a magnificent room to hold a wedding. From a photographers point of view, it’s also a great place to photograph the wedding as the natural light streams in through 3 huge windows – oh, and the local registrars are very relaxed about photography!
After the ceremony Victoria and Chris led their guests outside for drinks and canape’s – it was quite windy, but the sunshine made it feel very summery. We completed all of the photographs in plenty of time allowing the guests to relax and enjoy the afternoon. The guests were called to the dining room all set out in its splendour. Victoria chose a very summery theme for the reception, with lovely colourful summer flowers and table decorations, it really did look (and smell) wonderful!
Victoria & Chris are on Honeymoon in Italy and plan to visit Rome, Florence and Lake Maggiore. I hope they save some time for relaxation!
Here are a few photographs from the day…
