Festive Winter Wedding Inglewood Manor: Penny & David
Non Traditional Festive Winter Inglewood Manor Wedding Photography
Oh such a festive winter wedding at Inglewood Manor, The rooms beautifully decked and adorned with garlands and several Christmas trees.
So many gorgeous details. The snow cake with penguins and polar bear and topped with a gingerbread house. Really fitting for the festive theme.
Oh and our couple were blooming amazing too, totally non-traditional enjoying a first look before the ceremony and then walking down the aisle together.
Inglewood Manor Wedding First Look
It was such a lovely moment to capture and see their reactions when David turned around and saw Penny for the first time in her shimmering Monsoon wedding dress
Penny had cleverly accessorised the back of her dress herself with a string of pearls. The dress was stunning and so fitting for Penny
So relaxed with each other, it was a delight to see and we loved their many giggles!
Inglewood Manor Wedding Portraits
We took advantage of the light before the ceremony seeing as it was a late ceremony and would be dark afterwards being a Winter Inglewood Wedding
Inglewood has so many areas to take portraits we could avoid being overlooked by guests arriving for the wedding ceremony.
Inglewood Manor Wedding Photography of the Ceremony
We left them to have a few moments alone before the registrars cam to check their details before the wedding ceremony
Guests meanwhile had been gathering and enjoying canapes and then entered the Executive Suite (the oak panelled room)
Parents and Groomsmen, Bridesmaids and flower girl and page boy entered first before Penny and David finally entered, walking in together and looking so radiant
The Bridesmaids carrying lanterns which really fitted the Christmas theme.
A beautiful intimate family wedding, vows made and then what a kiss! \Soon time for the happy couple to exit for their mulled wine toast
Inglewood Manor Wedding Reception
There were a few groups but with plenty of time set aside and great cooperation, they were soon done. Family pictures are so important, especially when families had travelled far and wide, many from New Zealand to be her for Penny and David. The staircase is a lovely option for photos for small groups but for larger ones we used the side room with its beautiful Christmas tree and whitish walls.
There was plenty of time to mingle before the guests moved down to the Burton Suite so festively set up for the wedding breakfast and not just with the Christmas decorations
The table centrepieces were cute miniature winter scenes in fish bowls, all carefully painted by Penny herself – how creative!
There were several speeches – Father of Bride, Mother of Groom, Groom, Bestman and Bride’s sister! we love to capture the emotion and reactions during these.
Plenty of emotion, laughter and toasts to enjoy. The speeches were before the meal and afterwards, we left the party to enjoy their food and to continue the celebrations into the evening.
This was one of our short coverage twilight weddings and shows just how much can be captured in a few hours if you don’t require your photographers all day.
Of course, we took a couple of signature ring shots that we love to do – the bar in the Burton Suite made for a fab reflection and colour for the rings – how unusual are they!
Many congratulations David and Penny – it’s evident to see how much you enjoyed your day. Thank you for doing things your way and for asking us to capture the most important parts for you.
Wishing you many years of happiness and health, love Sandy & Dave
