Kristen and Chris’ Wedding at Athelhampton House, Dorchester, Dorset
Wedding Service Providers
Another visit to one of our favourite wedding venues.
Kristen and Chris were the first couple to have their wedding ceremony outside at Athelhampton House, it was an honour to be part of this.
The driveway down to the historic manor provides a long aisle for a Bride wanting to make a grand entrance and Kristen certainly did. The long slow walk down towards Chris was fabulous and gave everyone a chance to soak up the atmosphere of this very special day and to get a long look at the gorgeous wedding dress that Kristen has chosen.
The weather had been kind – a perfect day for a lovely couple at a fabulous venue. After the ceremony and a few family photos the couple left their guests enjoying a drink and some garden games on the lawn in the afternoon sunshine while they went off for a walk around the gardens stopping off for a photo here and there. The gardens are amazing and provide so many lovely locations for photos that we are spoilt for choice.
During the Wedding breakfast Chris had organised some singing waiters as a surprise for Kristen, they burst into song as the desserts were served. As they began to sing no-one was quite sure as to what was happening but very soon they realised and were joining in with fun, even the staff at Athelhampton joined in (you can always rely on them to participate in helping to make your day special).
To start the evening celebrations Kristen and Chris performed their first dance which started as a shuffle hug and to the guests delight and amazement after a few steps turned into a fabulous choreographed routine.
We wish Kristen and Chris all the very best for their future together. The following link will take you directly to their online galleries within our client area where you will find all of the images from the day. You will need the password provided in order to access the galleries.
