Ella and Joe got married this June at the beautiful Davenport House, which is a stunning country house in Bridgnorth. They had their ceremony at St Peter’s church, which is a lovely nearby church. It was a beautiful day and we had the best weather and so much fun!
Ella got ready at Davenport House with her bridesmaids and flower girls, and the atmosphere was so calm. The kids were also having a whale of a time practising “cheers” with their water bottles! The girls then rode the short distance to get to the ceremony. Everyone was in the church when they got there, eagerly awaiting their arrival! Joe also got ready at Davenport House in a different part with his brother, who was also his best man.
The ceremony was really lovely at a nearby church in Bridgnorth. At the time their wedding took place there was actually an art festival on at the church so there were lots of lovely arty pieces displayed around the church, including the most beautiful ribbons that were hanging down from the ceiling in the church. During the ceremony they had a beautiful reading. It was such a personal service and really beautiful. They came out of the church to lots of hugs and congratulations from all their friends and family. And they left church to head back to Davenport House through a confetti tunnel!
The Reception at Davenport House
The reception was in the main hall at Davenport House. They chose the venue because it’s so cosy and relaxed and they just fell in love with it. It was a really relaxed wedding, which I absolutely love! I love shooting weddings at Davenport House weddings because the building is so gorgeous. One of my favourite areas in Davenport House is the staircase that leads into the hall. Ella and Joe had had this adorned with gorgeous flowers that made their entrance to their first dance absolutely perfect.
They had drinks and canapes in the afternoon, and a DJ for party time in the evening. My favourite part of the day was when Ella and Joe made their entrance for their first dance each carrying a bottle of beer, I love a relaxed bride and groom! They decorated the venue with flowers and colourful candles, because they wanted to keep it simple.
For dinner they had a slap up meal, which was loved by all the guests. The first dance was a romantic slow dance, and they finished off the evening with a final photograph outside during golden hour.
The best part of the day was the afternoon reception, because all their guests were so relaxed and having such a great time.
Ella wore a gorgeous Whistles dress and Joe wore an Arket suit and they looked so dapper. Ella’s flowers were stunning, they were by one of my favourite florists, Wild Bunch!
Ella and Joe’s wedding had such a chilled vibe and was just the happiest occassion. Here’s their gorgeous wedding!
