Cain Manor Wedding
I was so excited to finally get to capture Charlotte and Paul’s Cain Manor wedding. I’d met up with Charlotte and Paul so many times before their wedding for family sessions, their engagement sessions and venue meetings too. By the day of the wedding it was just like seeing old friends!
Cain Manor is nestled within thick forest on the Hampshire/Surrey border. It’s romantic, charming and a typical English countryside manor house belonging to the Bijou Wedding Venue family. They chose this venue because“It’s beautiful! And we both got ‘the feeling’ when we went to see it!”
Despite having beautiful weather for their engagement session, the wedding day was a drizzly one but it didn’t affect anyones spirits. The girls were being pampered in the bridal suite with hair by Stephanie Louise Root and Victoria Oke Make-up. Meanwhile the boys put the finishing touches to the venue and got ready themselves.
It was an emotional ceremony in Cain Manor’s barn style ceremony room. Charlotte’s proud father walked her down the aisle to a beaming Paul. Whilst a string quartet played ‘A tale as old as time’ from Beauty and the Beast- Charlotte’s favourite film. They exited their wedding to all the guests blowing bubbles which was amazing!
Even with the drizzle, these two braved the weather and came outside (with umbrellas of course!) for their couple photographs. I’m so glad they did! We made some magic in the rain together!
They got back just time to be entered into their beautiful wedding breakfast room.
“Our table names were quotes from our favourite films. We love films! There are slight hints of Disney throughout.”
These guys also prepared a routine for their first dance that only the bridal party were aware of. It was such a nice surprise for the rest of the guests and these two nailed it!
“Our first dance is to John Legend ‘All of me’ as it is ‘our song’ and has been for years.”
It was a total pleasure to capture your Cain Manor Wedding! Thank you so much for having us!
