Sally and Riccardo had a Notley Abbey wedding on a very wet day in July. Notley Abbey is a luxury country house wedding venue on the Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire border.
My coverage of the day started with bride prep in the Notley Abbey bridal suite. Sally was doing her own makeup and was joined by her two bridesmaids. Riccardo was also getting ready at the venue, so I was also able to capture a little bit of groom prep.
The ceremony took place in The Abbot’s Hall which was beautifully decorated with large floral urns.
The reception took place in The Monks’ Refectory. The reception began with a song performed by two of Sally and Riccardo’s friends. After the wedding breakfast, speeches were given by the best man, maid of honour, the father of the groom and the father of the bride.
After the wedding breakfast, there was a break in the rain so I took Sally and Riccardo out for a walk around the grounds for some portraits. One of my favourite features of Notley Abbey is the long, beautiful, tree-lined driveway. We took portraits along the driveway and at the front of the house.
The evening reception kicked off with a short speech given by Riccardo and was followed by Sally performing a song and the cutting of the cake.
Many congratulations to Sally and Riccardo!
