Russell & Rachael’s summer wedding at Holdenby House

August 29, 2012

Russell and Rachael had their wedding at Holdenby House in Northamptonshire, one of my regular and favourite venues. It’s stunning, inside and out, and I feel very blessed to work there so often. It was the perfect choice for Russell and Rachael’s glam wedding.

Rachael got ready in The White Room which has the most amazing peacock design wallpaper…

Russell and Rachael had their civil wedding ceremony in the Dining Room…

The weather was beautifully sunny so it was fab to enjoy all the outside space during the drinks reception.

The Ballroom of Holdenby House is a fabulous room and was set off perfectly with Russell and Rachael’s pink styling. Rachael made the table plan herself, definitely worth the effort!

Speeches. The most fun part of any wedding.

Everyone enjoyed cocktails at the start of the evening reception and there was live music too, which Russell and Rachael did their first dance to.

    I went to school with Rachael and saw these pop up on her Facebook page – what a beautiful wedding and what beautiful pictures!
