This weekend saw the very first woodland wedding to take place at Hirst Priory and we are pleased to say it was a wonderful and emotional experience for everyone involved. We are awaiting the official photographs but in the meantime here are a few snaps from the day to show what a beautifully stylish woodland wedding setting it is:
Holding the wedding ceremony beneath the enveloping leafy canopy of mature English Yew, poplar and wild cherry trees brought a wonderfully calm atmosphere to proceedings. The weather was fortunately kind, (although we did have a large rain proof cover on standby), and the cool shelter amongst the trees was a welcome relief from the heat of the sun. The hauntingly melodic sounds of the harp fit perfectly within the woodland setting and sounded moving and amazing.
The woodland wedding area was very sensitively dressed so as not to over power the beauty of such a natural setting. the 30m of muslin fabric formed a delicate frame around the ceremony area and the light open structure of the chavari chairs with their hand crafted bows added perfectly to the theme. The bride entered the woodland amidst dappled sunlight and looked radiant as she proceeded along the jute pathway in full view of the admiring guests.
As the day moved through in to the evening the lighting in the woodland wedding area came in to play, creating a magical atmosphere that drew guests in to its heart for a very unique wedding experience. The best comment of the day that summed up the whole event for everyone involved was, “I knew it would be good but I had no idea it would be as good as this has been!”
It really is breathtakingly beautiful in the Hirst Priory woodland wedding area! Do come and see for yourself…
