Candle-lit chapel, lanterns marking the way in darkness from the chapel to the hotel, candle-lit intimate wedding breakfast… not words a photographer wants to hear necessarily when asked to shoot a wedding, because as lovely as it sounds, it’s not easy to take well lit photographs in near darkness – but it turned out to be just fine! Having professional camera gear means that I can take photos in very dark rooms without using flash, and still get beautifully lit images that convey the atmosphere of the setting.
Bailiffscourt Hotel & Spa was a lovely venue for this intimate wedding. Here is the Music Room where the civil ceremony was to take place.
And this is the little chapel for the religious ceremony.
Before the ceremony, the couple had a chat with the registrar in the Card Room.
The ceremony was very touching with readings from both the bride and the groom, given to each other.
After the civil ceremony, almost in total darkness, the couple walked across the gardens and entered the chapel.
After some formal photos, drinks and hors d’oeuvres back at the hotel, it was time for the wedding breakfast in the stunningly decorated Music Room.
The wedding cake was very creative, thanks to the bride and her creative mind! It had two boats named after the bride and groom and beach huts as smaller individual cakes.
What a beautiful setting it was. Time for me to leave the family to enjoy their wedding breakfast!
