Waddesdon manor wedding – Amanda and Emmerson
Hands up if you’ve ever surfed at a wedding? Nope, me neither. I still haven’t had the chance, despite the surf machine that Amanda and Emmerson included in their tropical themed waddesdon manor wedding. I was far too busy capturing the basketball match that was taking place, what an action packed, fun wedding!
As you might have already guessed, Amanda and Emmerson’s wedding at The Dairy at Waddesdon Manor Buckinghamshire, was not your usual celebration, and as you will have also guessed I had an absolute ball capturing the day for them. The first wedding ceremony planned for the absolutely stunning, far side of the lake, Amanda was adamant that the outdoor ceremony would take place whatever the weather. Luckily for the couple, the English weather was well behaved for once and played along with their plans. And wow, what a stunning backdrop for their beautiful independent wedding ceremony.
Jenny at Knight ceremonies was amazing, making everyone feel so comfortable. Jenny conducted a lovely personal service full of stories, joining the wedding party across the lake. It was full of stories, love and laughter. As you will see from the photos, it was breath-taking, and well suited to the Hawaiian theme with it’s lush green setting. Cue lei-adorned guests and ukulele performance!
Next it was back over to the The Dairy for some inflatable fun before the impromptu basketball match between the groomsmen and bridesmaids. There were professionals involved, Emmerson is a coach, and hence this was no holds barred and extremely good fun. As for the surf machine, well the kids definitely seemed to be coming out best there. However as keen surfers, the bride and groom did put on a good display to show how its really done. 🙂
