Winter Wedding at the White Hart Great Yeldham
Francesca & Martin | White Hart, Great Yeldham
Winter weddings are magical. There may not be long light evenings but a wedding on a beautiful bright crisp day is stunning. Martin and Francesca chose to have an Essex Wedding at the fabulous White Hart, Great Yeldahm. Fran and the girls took over the upper floor to get ready and her wedding dress in pride of place. Marting and the boys were a short distance away in one of the other accommodation rooms. Being so close meant that I could nip between the both of them and capture some preparation photos very easily. It's always good to get the boys side of the morning too.
Despite a room full of girls, of all ages, it was a relaxing atmosphere with make-up and giggles and a few bubbles being poured. Francesca knew about my love of Converse and had already told me that there would be a rather special pair on the day. A fab pair of personalised sparkly silver converse for the dancing later.
The Tudor Barn was being decorated and the DJ setting up for the party later on. It looked beautiful as I looked down from the gallery ceremony room above. It wasn't long before the cake arrived. Heather from Keen for Cakes, delivered a semi-naked cake decorated with buttercream, blueberries and macaroons. I can guarantee it tasted delicious.
The ceremony was emotional, just how weddings should be. A few tears, lots of smiles and one or two laughs make the perfect ceremony and the perfect day. As beautiful as winter weddings are, they can be rather chilly, so we soon headed outside to take the family group shots. I am a strong believer that you should have some family photos. they are important to have to look back on years later.
After speeches came the dancing. Now I know some couples dread this bit but I always say just hold on tight and shuffle, you don't have to do a full-on dance routine, but let me know if you are.
Thank you for starting my 2018 wedding year off with such a wonderful day. I wish you both many years of love and happiness together.
Are you planning a winter wedding or summer, I love those too then drop me a message here and tell me all about your day.
