Late summer wedding day at Packington Moor
January 2018 Filed in: Weddings
There's a pinch of luck to be included when it comes to the ingredients for a perfect wedding day all coming together for you. Whilst many unknown elements of a wedding day can turn out to be components for some of the best anecdotes: things like dry weather and everyone arriving on time are definitely elements we all hope for, but can't necessarily control. Luck was certainly on Maddie and Rich's side for their late summer wedding day last year. They must have been blessed by the wedding gods as wonderful weather accompanied their day. Their beautiful wedding venue Packington Moor was filled with their family and friends. In fact the whole day went off without a hitch – just Maddie and Rich getting hitched!
Their wedding shoot started when Maddie arrived with their daughter Rose. After a quick check on the progress of the venue's preparations, it was over to Walter's Cottage to relax with parents and bridesmaids before the bridal prep commenced. Little Rose's outfit and shoes were too cute not to photograph, and the simple elegance of Maddie's wedding dress was stunning. Just next door to the cottage her husband-to-be Rich was also getting ready with other family and friends present too.
It wasn't long before it was time to head to Packington Moor's Oat Barn, where the couple exchanged their vows, and their first kiss as husband and wife. Afterwards it was out to the wonderful courtyard where all the guests could offer congratulations and enjoy the sunshine, whilst playing lawn games and sipping cocktails and drinks. The grounds at Packington offer lots of great locations for some portrait photos, so after spending some time with Maddie, Rich and Rose, I was lucky enough to spend some time with her three rather brilliant bridesmaids. Hilarity ensued, with a selection of photos that was no doubt a very fun surprise for Maddie and Rich when receiving their wedding gallery.
Eventually the celebrations segued into their wedding reception, with heartfelt speeches, a tasty meal, and an amusing game of 'stand up bingo'. The remainder of the day had a wonderful relaxed summer vibe, before rounding it all off with the couple’s first dance together, and everyone hitting the dance floor and dancing the night away.
