When Alarna & Jermayne got married!!
The recipe for a fab Shropshire summer wedding:-
~ Take one amazing venue like Delbury Hall, near Ludlow,
~ Combine with an outdoor ceremony on the lawn, surrounded by roses
~ Mix in a harpist, a singer, an ice cream cart, and a log cabin photo booth
~ Sprinkle on some glitter face painting
~ Finally, add 16 nephews and nieces
Then bake in the sun all day!!

But bear this mind it was meant to be
And I'm joining up the dots with the freckles on your cheeks
And it all makes sense to me
Candid Shropshire Wedding Photography
This year I'm getting to discover some more of the amazing wedding venues that Shropshire has hidden away down it's country lanes and the latest to add to the list is Delbury Hall
It's a Georgian Mansion, pretty close to Ludlow, with the Clee Hills and Wenlock Edge for a view. Still privately owned, getting married here gives you a real taste of country life, your own piece of rural England for the day!
As I mentioned in my 'recipe', Alarna & Jermayne have A LOT of nieces and nephews, all excited to see their favourite Aunt & Uncle get wed. So it's only natural that some of the nieces would be bridesmaids and flower girls, seven in fact
Of course that does mean that as well getting herself ready the bride had quite a few little ones to assist too. With all the bridal party in a suite overlooking a courtyard, that was gradually filling up with wedding guests, maybe it served as a nice distraction!

The thing with an outdoor wedding ceremony is, of course, that it's weather dependant. This summer though we seem to have had the opposite problem with the risk of sun stroke after sitting outside!
Rather that though than everyone having to go scurrying inside as the heavens opened and with hardly a cloud in the sky the was little risk of a downpour
It's quite a long walk across the lawn, around the fountain and then down the aisle, especially when you've got little legs. So with the seven bridesmaids/flower girls, then the Maid of Honour to each make their arrival it certainly built the anticipation and emotion, until finally it was the turn of the Bride
If you go through my culinary simile then you'll see that there was lots to keep the guests entertained at this wedding, lots and lots!!
There'd been a harpist playing beautiful music before and after the ceremony, then later in the day there was an ice cream cart (much needed!) a very cool log cabin photobooth, festival style glitter face painting and an amazing singer out in the courtyard
This is where Alarna & Jermayne had their first dance, surrounded by family and friends, in the evening sunshine, keeping the al fresco vibe going all day long
Hope they wore suncream!!
