Orchardleigh is a stunning venue and I always enjoy photographing a wedding there. Having only met Neil and Victoria in Cheltenham a few months ago, I was really looking forward to their day. Neil, his brothers, friends and sister all stayed in Gloucester East on the grounds of Orchardleigh and were all ready in tails (apart from Chris in uniform) when I got there. Even Siobhan was in tails although her shoes were way better than the boys!
It was lovely to spend time with Victoria while she was getting ready. The first thing she did was offer me a glass of Champagne so I knew the day was going to be great! She remained incredibly relaxed the whole morning with many people coming and going. As you can see, her dress was stunning!
Although the weather wasn’t with us the whole day (sorry to everyone that stood outside for the big group shot in the rain!) it certainly didn’t dampen the spirits of the day. With almost 150 guests, the two dining rooms were packed as was the dance floor later on!
