Emma and Aled’s Carden Park wedding in the Shooting Lodge was at the end of July and here are the highlights of their day!

Emma got ready in one of Cardens fantastic wedding suites, with her bridesmaids. The colour scheme was a beautiful summery pale yellow which looked great against the guys grey suits.

The wedding ceremony was in the Shooting Lodge with these huge LOVE letters which always look great!

You can’t go wrong with an ice cream cart! And Carden’s canapes were fabulous as always.

We spent so long waiting for the crunch moment with the Giant Jenga – I can’t say the guys were cheating, but perhaps the rules have changed since I last played…

The gardens in front of the hotel are fabulous for couple portraits and we like to mix it up with a few under the trees too.

I really liked the clean, fresh pallete of pale yellow on white – it makes for a wonderful summery feel to the wedding. The stationery and jam jars with yellow flowers and matching place settings and menu’s all went together beautifully.

You’ll need to see the video to see how well setup this was. The singing waiters worked their magic, completely surprising everybody who genuinely had no idea it was a setup. After the waiters very public bust up, when everyone realised what was going on, the whole place erupted and crazy dancing ensued!

First dance! A prelude to half the party piling on to the dance floor.

If we can get outside for a few photographs in the evening light, we always will and the lovely long grass and vineyards behind the Shooting Lodge are ideal.
