I met up with Rob and the guests at 7 Square which was conveniently located opposite St Mary’s church ahead of the ceremony. The collegiate church was an amazing setting for the ceremony. It was founded on its current site in 1123, has great architecture, is steeped in history and is one of the largest churches in Britain.
Louise arrived in a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow with her father and was also accompanied by a whole team of bridesmaids and flower girls. Louise, Rob and their guests enjoyed a lovely ceremony followed by a few photos outside church before travelling the short distance to Alveston Manor.
Alveston Manor is located in Stratford Upon Avon. This charming Tudor mansion in the heart of Shakespeare Country has its own stunning gardens. With rain forecasted we just had time to take advantage of the lovely grounds to capture Louise and Rob’s family and portrait shots before heading back inside the Manor.
Everyone enjoyed the wedding breakfast and entertaining speeches in the Cedar Room. This room has a very special view outside as it looks over the setting of the first ever performance of Shakespeares ‘A Midsummer Nights Dream’.
Unfortunately the rain kept falling so everyone relaxed and enjoyed the comfort of the Manor until it was time for Louise and Rob to take to the dance floor for first dance.
