This Mapperton House Wedding was such an amazing day; Tara & Tom are an awesome couple and along with their guests they made the day a wonderful experience for me. The morning began for me with Tara and the girls as they got ready and the nervous energy grew. The girls were so relaxed and the morning had a a really chilled vibe to it. With the church only a short drive away from Tara & Tom’s house, I could leave shortly before Tara left for the ceremony. Tom and the guys had been at the church for a while, welcoming guests and getting the last finishing touches ready for the ceremony.

After a beautiful ceremony Tara & Tom left the church through a shower of confetti and headed to Mapperton House to enjoy the afternoon celebrating with all their family & friends. Arriving at Mapperton House in a horse drawn carriage, Tara and Tom wowed all their guests. who watched them make their grand entrance down the long drive toward Mapperton House.

The orangery at Mapperton House is a stunning spot for an afternoon drinks reception and all the wedding guests  made the most of the weather and the gardens. After some group photos all the guests made their way to the barn as I took Tara & Tom for a wander through the grounds to take some couples portraits. These two were great in front of the camera, they were really chilled and we had a great few minutes capturing some stunning images.

The wedding breakfast and speeches were next to follow in the day’s events and the speeches did not disappoint! With lots of laughter and smiles throughout, all three gents did a great job. As the sun set, the vibe of the day changed and the evening reception kicked off with the bride & groom cutting the cake and then heading onto the dance floor for their first dance. The first dance led into a Ceilidh, with lots of the guests joining Tara & Tom to dance the night away.

This was my first Mapperton House wedding and I had an absolute blast documenting Tara & Tom’s wedding day. The venue is incredibly awesome, with vast, beautiful grounds and amazing areas for photos and for guests to enjoy the day. It was a real pleasure to be a part of this wedding day .
