A new venue for me this week, the Ladywood estate at Rutland is a country home available for the weekend and a super location for a wedding party, tucked away down a country lane near Oakham and with views of the rolling countryside. Matilda and Stuart opted for a small intimate wedding with 35 guests on the 5th May. They had a humanist ceremony in a marquee followed by drinks in the main house and a buffet meal.
The weather was unfortunately wet and cold all day but this never gets in the way of good photographs. My coverage started with the grooms preparations around four hours before the ceremony and then moved on to the brides preparations when Matilda arrived from the hairdressers.
