Planning a winter wedding can always be stressful. What will the weather do? Will it rain, will it be windy, will it snow! Bonnie and Jamie at least managed to arrange part of the weather forecast for their Langdon Court Wedding. With the wedding taking place on New Years Eve, they also made sure that both celebrations could be combined in one massive party.
A Langdon Court Wedding, always has a special feel to it. It is a stunningly beautiful venue. Situated close to Plymouth it provides an accessible rural retreat, which just oozes style and charisma. Both the bride and groom had decided to get ready at the venue. The bridal party were treated to the hair styling of Brigitte Fisher and make up by Beauty by Aimee. Flowers were provided by Flowers by Amanda. Meanwhile, the groom and groomsmen donned superb tweed suits from The Wedding Company. I love tweed and I had a fair amount of tweed envy seeing the suits for the first time.
One of the benefits of a Langdon Court Wedding is that the beautiful St Werburgh’s Church at Wembury is situated just down the road. As the bride arrived at St Werburgh’s the wind started to pick up. The brides veil swirled in the wind as she was rushed into the church. It was dramatic but he bridal party took it with good spirits. With the ceremony completed, Bonnie and Jamie left the church. Here is where they were able to at least get one of their wishes concerning the weather. ‘Snowfetti’ took the place of confetti. It was absolutely magical. A winter wonderland was created from nowhere.
Arriving back at Langdon Court the guests were treated to the next stage of the snow surprise. They were greeted by a snow machine at the main entrance. Bonnie and Jamie had gone all out to ensure that there would be at least some snow on their wedding day. A Langdon Court Wedding has the added bonus of the beautiful grounds that surround the venue. We took a walk for the bride and groom shots. I love the images that we created. Just as we were finishing the last of the sunlight came through and hit where we were standing. Perfect.
The rest of the day continued just as you would expect a Langdon Court Wedding to. The wedding breakfast was expertly catered for by the venue. With New Years Eve approaching the wedding started to party hard. A casino was set up in the bar of Langdon Court and the disco was in full swing. Which neatly leads me to the the first point in this blog. Winter weddings are wonderful. It’s a bold statement, I know. Yes, the weather can be a challenge. Yes, the days are shorter. But, with the right venue and a bit of planning you can create a day that is utterly unique – even if you do need to bring your on snow.
