I am so excited to announce that I am lucky enough to have been chosen to work alongside The Bradgate Park Trust to write and conduct ceremonies at the gorgeous Bradgate Park in Leicestershire from July 2016.
I have been going to Bradgate Park all of my life, having been taken there by my Grandparents and parents. I now take my children there and am able to take them to the same areas I would visit as a child, paddling in the same streams, climbing the same hills and rocks. The wonderful thing about Bradgate Park is that it is a natural unspoilt beauty spot, that does not change ( in a good way ! )
I know that so many people would love to be able to have a ceremony at the park and now you can !
There are 2 key areas of the park that can be used for a ceremony, the first being The Woodlands, featured in our shoot below
Lots of talented local suppliers from the wedding industry helped to showcase what a Woodland Wedding at Bradgate Park could look like and slowly but surely it all came together.
Once Bradgate Park Trust had laid the logs and bark chipping down to create an aisle and seating area, Tara from Tickety Boo Events sprinkled her magic styling dust on the ceremony area along with Clemency from The Beau Flower Company who provided the beautiful table centre piece, bouquets and button holes.
The stylish suits for both Grooms, provided by Christopher Scotney's in Leicester and the white bridal gown provided by Brides of Ibstock gave a sophisticated edge to the natural surroundings.
Our second location within the park, is The Ruins, which was the home of Lady Jane Grey, before she became Queen. With the deer ambling slowly in the background and the stunning backdrop of the ruins themselves and the grounds within them, we were spoilt for choice as to where to start. The black dress, gave an alternative edgy feel. The confetti used were simple hand dried flowers, which was a key factor when deciding what to use, as they will cause no harm to the deer if eaten !
