In September last year Sally & Bruce were married at Sheldon Manor Wiltshire. A lovely couple and a lot of fun to be around, we met for an engagement shoot at Lacock, coincidently where my wife and I had our reception on our wedding day.
Sheldon Manor was the first winner of AA/NPI Historic House Awards, for its “architectural integrity and warm welcome”; its gardens, which are open to the public, although the house itself is not, include a beautiful rose garden, ancient yews, an arboretum and mulberry bushes. We used many of these locations for photographs of the lovely couple following their ceremony.
Bruce and Sally’s was flooded during the storms of 2014, as you can see from one of the photos below of Bruce showing the water height marker that broke off when the river at the bottom of their garden burst its banks. Thankfully after a long clean up operation they are back home again and enjoying married life together in their beautiful home.
Some of the many highlights of their wedding included the beautiful manor itself, the fact that the groom stayed in one of the cottages called “the cock loft” before the wedding :p Bruce’s brother making an appearance with the band on drums, a hand painted bass drum by Bruce’s niece, pre-wedding swimming in the outdoor pool by some of the guests on a chilly September morning, the Morgan, the wonderful Indian tent for the reception and of course speeches by torchlight!
Please take a look through the photos below to get an idea of the fun, romantic wedding they shared with close family and friends at Sheldon Manor.
Wishing Bruce and Sally a wonderful life together, it was a real pleasure being their photographer on their wonderful wedding day x
