Saturday 6 August - Pendley Manor

Natalie and Jack

It's been years since I last photographed at Pendley and Natalie and Jack's wedding was a really hot sunny one!!! There were also two weddings going on that day, plus a outdoor Shakespere performance, so keeping tabs on who I was supposed to be photographing proved interesting.

Being a big fan of anything ranging from duck egg to mint green I thoroughly approved of their colourscheme which even extended to the venue's wallpaper (clever that).

I distinctly remember spending a lot of time trying to get at least one peacock in shot ... it was a challenge as the white one didn't want to play ball at all. I should really look at adding some peacock treats to the kit bag for any future visits to Pendley.

The couple chose their favourite childhood classics as their table names and had stacks of books under each vase of flowers. Favours had an Alice in Wonderland take on things and the cake was black with a chalkboard effect.

Moving to the newer end of the hotel for the evening party was easier said than done if you try and walk through the hotel. It's a rabbit warren of corridoors so take my advice and take the outside route instead. For someone who doesn't drink, Jack was a complete demon on the dancefloor all night which meant it was always packed.
