Wedding at Prestwold Hall

A glorious Summer for a midweek wedding at Prestwold Hall. I first met Jen and Joel nearly two years ago at Prestwold Hall Wedding Fair. Time seems to fly by and in what seemed like no time at all we were meeting for a relaxed pre wedding shoot and chat through their day at Prestwold.

It was a beautiful wedding morning for Jen’s bridal preparations in the fabulous rooms at Prestwold Hall overlooking the gardens and countryside. Jen was expecting to walk to the church on the estate, but somehow her Mum managed to keep the horse and carriage she had planned a secret and so Jen arrived in style. Jen and Joel also enjoyed some time together after the ceremony during a ride in the open top carriage in the surrounding countryside.
