Outdoor ceremony, crying with laughter in the speeches and a dog called Bailey!
It's always great to be the first to do something and Joanne & David have the proud claim to fame of being the very first couple to get married outside on the lawn at the beautiful Henley Hall near Ludlow in Shropshire, right next to the River Ledwyche
A privately owned house they limit themselves to around half a dozen weddings a year - so book early if you're interested!!
When I met the couple at the venue, a month or so before the wedding, I got the opportunity to show off some of my largely useless general knowledge by knowing what a ha-ha is. Good to know that all those pub quizzes haven't been in vain!! (It's a little ditch that you find at country houses. It keeps the livestock from getting on the manicured lawn but can't be seen from the house....so now you know!)
The hall is a Grade II listed building with gorgeous formal gardens and parkland surrounding it, only about 2 miles from Ludlow, a stunning location for a wedding :-)
