Grittleton House wedding – Lucy & Dan
Our first wedding of the year was at the amazing Grittleton House in February. Approaching Grittleton House seems like arriving at Hogwarts, it is an imposing building in a beautiful Wiltshire village. For Wiltshire wedding photographers like us it’s a gift to photograph. Dan & Lucy booked us about a year ago but time flies and before we knew it, we were shooting their pre-wedding photography at Stanton Park and then the wedding was here.
It was a glorious day for the wedding, Dan and his Dad arrived in style in the Rolls Royce. It was the first time the chauffeur had driven both the groom and the bride to the same wedding – separately of course. We met Dan and his groom dudes at the gate and I hopped in the car for the drive up to the house. Once Dan was dropped off at the front of Grittleton House the Rolls went up to the stables where Lucy was waiting.
We had been up with Lucy and the girls shooting their preparations and when Lucy was ready I jumped in the car again to get some photos of her and Dad as they made their way down to the house. When we arrived all the guests were waiting and Dan was watching the door for Lucy’s arrival. “You’re not supposed to be looking.” I whispered as I went by. “Wait until she enters the room and then look round.”
After the group shots we took some time to get a few portraits on the stairs and I got one of my favourite shots “The ring inspectors”
It was dark after the wedding breakfast but we still managed to get outside for a few more portraits which gave Dan & Lucy a bit of a break from all the congratulating. Then it was time for first dance, bouquet throwing and the maquerena before we disappeared into the night.
