Melody & Marcus – DIY Wedding at Northbrook Park, Surrey

Playing catch up on some weddings from a few months ago now! Earlier this summer I was privileged to go to Northbrook Park, near Farnham, Surrey for Melody & Marcus’s nuptials – photographing with James at Digital Weddings.

Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park001Melody got ready with her girls in one of the new Mews cottages at Northbrook Park – I ended up getting up close and personal with girls – lacing up their dresses (one of my other skills!)Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park002 Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park003Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park004The marriage ceremony was held in the beautiful bright and airy Vine Room – I do like to complain about a dark room but this was the exact opposite, windows on 3 sides, tall white ceilings, white marble floor, ahhh light everywhere makes Clare a happy photographer!
The Bride & Groom chose to have a registrar perform the official ceremony then had a blessing from their own vicar – nice touch I thought! One of their Bridesmaids sung during the signing of the register too.Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park005Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park006 Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park007The reception began in the stunning landscaped gardens at Northbrook, but after a few selfies with the resident peacocks. Food was bought to you by a tasty buffet – if anyone can tell me where I can find Christora Sausages – please let me know – they were really good!
Melody & Marcus chose to do a lot by themselves, all the table decorations and organising was done by the Bridal Party, the MC was one of the ushers. They even had a self-serve bar area during the meal.Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park008Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park009Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park010Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park011 Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park012Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park013Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park014First dance was followed by a money dance then lots and lots of partying and dancing!Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park015 Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park016Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park018 Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park017Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park019 Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park020Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park022Essex_Wedding_Photographer_Northbrook_Park021All whilst the peacocks had a snooze!
