Beautiful Walled Garden Wedding in Lincolnshire
I met up with Holly & Ashley a few weeks before their Scrivelsby Walled Garden wedding to take a look round this intriguing location. Hidden away so well that I drove straight past it twice, this 250 year old walled garden is immaculately kept and makes a beautiful backdrop for a marquee or tipi reception.
Holly & Ashley chose to have their wedding ceremony at the equally enchanting St Benedicts Church, a short walk over a grass field from the venue. This 13th century church has no electricity, so flickering candlelight from the chandeliers and natural light from the tall windows were all that illuminated the ceremony.
Confetti Clouds & Rain Clouds
Confetti swirled round and engulfed Holly & Ashley as they walked out of church, the wind carrying it up and suspending it above them. Guests started to make their way over the field towards the walled garden, with the wedding party following behind. Umbrellas started to unfold as a few spots of rain appeared, then almost instantly a wall of rain descended on us. Unfortunately, holding two cameras and an umbrella is a skill I’m yet to master, but the images were certainly worth it! The rain continued for some time, so relentlessly that the speeches had to be postponed because of the noise it made on the marquee roof!
As the day drew to an end and the rain finally subsided, we once again had a sunny September evening to enjoy. Holly & Ashley took the opportunity to wander back over to the church and around the gardens for some portraits. The first dance, lots of tequila shots and crazy dance moves were to follow.
