I love the Talbooths! Both Maison Talbooth and Le Talbooth a few minutes down the road from each other – they’re perfect together. This was my second visit to both venues this year but Sally & Chris’ wedding was extra special because there were only 18 guests but still spanning four generations.
I met Sally & Chris prior to the wedding to go through the timeline of events and I usually get a list of all the important family members too – so I make sure I get the right shots (I quite like to do couple or individual family shots as well as or instead of the elongated bog standard groups). This is also when I learnt Sally was in a business partnership making miniature cakes! Check out – Double S Cakes.
We arranged that I was to meet Sally at The Sun Inn, Dedham a little before the wedding to get the final preparation and details shots before heading off to Maison Talbooth for the ceremony.
After a couple of quick pictures and the confetti we all headed straight to Le Talbooth for drinks reception on the riverside terrace.
Anyone who has ever spoken to me, may know I have a slight obsession with rivers/canals/narrowboats – which is why I absolutely love this venue – I get to be beside the river! Not only that, but after dinner, you can cruise up and down the River Stour on Le Talbooth’s own boat Kathleen.
After dinner, speeches and boating everyone was back to The Sun Inn for the evening – which is where I left them – literally dropping them off in my car (they’d arranged transport for everyone else except themselves – I wasn’t going to leave them!)
Flowers were by Amanda Steward who even arranged a silver sixpence for good luck.
