Louise + Steven
Wedding Photography / Keythorpe Manor Leicestershire
Last time I visited Keythorpe Manor was on a very murky day just before Christmas in 2012, so it was nice to experience it in friendlier weather. After making her preparations in the on-site accommodation, Louise arrived in the barn for the ceremony to be greeted by a very emotional Steven. I think the music set him off!
After the ceremony there was a brief pause for confetti, then everyone headed over to the huge marquee for drinks and nibbles. For the second wedding in a row we had some very tasty looking cocktails, and soon it was time for the wedding breakfast. As this came to a close the guests got the shock of their lives as four of the waiting staff burst into song. Turns out that secret wedding singers had been embedded in the ranks, and they entertained until it was time for speeches.
Steven got particularly stitched up by his best men who had some very embarrassing photographs to share. The day ended with the opening of the last portion of marquee revealing the band and dance floor. Cue shape-throwing!
