Caswell House Autumn Wedding.
We were delighted to be back at the wonderful Caswell House greeted by a surprisingly warm October sun. The venue looked more beautiful than ever with the autumn hues encompassing the grounds. Already in high spirits, we spent the rest of day in the same manner and thoroughly looking forward to filming the wedding of the soon to be husband and wife Stuart and Sarah.
Stuart and Sarah made their preparations at opposite sides of the grounds, both surrounded by their family and friends. Sarah’s family had travelled over from Canada and it was clear to see the strong bond they all shared. This was never more evident than when Sarahs father, Ed, saw his daughter for the first time in her wedding dress. Meanwhile, Stuart, who had finished getting ready, was opening an early wedding present from Sarah. A painting of the first house they bought together by an artist they both liked.
This was our first Caswell House wedding with an indoor ceremony, which took place in one of the medieval barns. It did not disappoint, with the honey-coloured stone walls and warm sunlight coming through the windows, the room was filled with a golden luminance. After the couple made their promises to each other before their friends and family, all the guests sang ‘With a Little Help from my Friends’ by The Beatles. With the golden light and the harmony of the music; it was the perfect way to begin their new chapter of husband and wife.
Post-ceremony guests gathered outside for a glass of fizz and congratulated the newly weds. After the group shots were completed, we strolled around the grounds of Caswell House along with the photographer for the day, Lola Rose Photography, to capture their portrait shots. With the autumn hues, early sunset and gorgeous couple; making the portrait shots look cinematic was light work and all the more fun for it.
We enjoyed an array of speeches from Sarahs parents, Ed and Sally, her sisters/bridesmaids, Anna and Karen, Stuarts bestman, Jez and a joint speech from Sarah and Stuart. Filming the speeches in a room filled with two sets of friends and family from Canada and UK was wonderful and is probably best summed up by a quote from Stuart ‘It is quite humbling and a powerful feeling seeing two worlds come together and all in the name of love.’
Concluding this wonderful day for us, Stuart and Sarah joined on the dance floor for the first time as husband and wife and danced to an acoustic rendition of a favourite Deep House song, Blue Sky Action. We wish Stuart and Sarah all the best for the future and can’t wait for our next wedding at Caswell House.
