Wedding Preparations at Hornington Manor

The day started with bustling preparations on both sides of Hornington Manor. The West Wing housed the bridesmaids, where each had ample space to get ready. Meanwhile, the groom and his entourage found their cool setting in the pool room, complete with a pool table, creating some memorable photo opportunities.

Stunning Outdoor Photos and Unexpected Surprises

Amidst the photo session, we encountered a delightful surprise. A pair of Canadian geese, nesting on the island nearby, decided to play havoc and protect their nest, adding a touch of nature’s charm to the day. It was an unexpected and memorable moment that added to the uniqueness of the occasion.

The Russet Barn

A Perfect Ceremony Venue: Chris and Lucy exchanged their vows in the recently added Russet Barn, which proved to be a charming location. The barn’s magnificent chandeliers and natural acoustics ensured that every guest, regardless of their seating, could hear the heartfelt promises shared by the couple.

A Surprise Guard of Honour

Following the ceremony, the guests formed a guard of honour, awaiting the newlyweds’ grand entrance. However, to everyone’s astonishment, the first to emerge from behind the Manor house door was Yorkshire’s sensational band, Back Chat Brass! The band seamlessly joined the line, leading the couple down the aisle. It was an unforgettable moment that added an extraordinary touch to the wedding festivities.

The Dining Barn: Surprises Continue

As the celebrations progressed, the dining barn became the stage for the second surprise of the day. Chris and Lucy treated their guests to a flawlessly choreographed first dance that left everyone mesmerized. The backdrop of fairy lights against the dining barn’s back wall added an enchanting atmosphere, perfectly accentuating the couple’s dance moves.
