Every so often during the course of your career you meet couples who are worth saying yes to. Alex and Crystal are one of those couples. When they first got in touch with us about their wedding we had their weekend blocked off in our diary, determined to finally celebrate our own anniversary (which happened to fall on the same date as their wedding.) But when we heard about their plans and spoke to them on Skype there was no way that we could say no. As it happens their wedding turned out to be one of our favourite of the year so far and probably of all time too.
The atmosphere was calm and relaxed from the moment we arrived. There was obvious excitement in the air and everyone went out of their way to ensure that we felt welcome. The venue itself is absolutely breathtaking with so many pretty and quaint areas to explore. You could quite happily spend a whole afternoon out there moving from one location to the next….but alas there were far more exciting things going on throughout the day!
Melksham Court wedding in the rain?
In spite of what you may think, the wedding wasn’t actually planned to be inside. You see that gorgeous ceremony room? That, THAT was plan B! Most venues don’t even have somewhere that beautiful for plan A! So that’s the kind of day we were lucky enough to be shooting. Where even plan B is amazing! Thankfully, the flurry or rain disappeared and for the rest of the day things held up, meaning plans could progress outside. Much to everyone’s delight and enjoyment.
Crystal and Alex’ day was personal, unique and above all else, fun. From the games and gin bar, to the perfectly executed speeches and karaoke in the evening. Nothing was too serious and we think it shows. Just about everyone had a smile from ear to ear all day. Us included!
Thank you C&A for having us and welcoming us with open arms, it was a pleasure and a lot of fun getting to know you all. We hope you love the photos.
