The first venue for today was The Casa Hotel Yateley. It is here that I met up with Kayleigh and the rest of her wedding party. Upon my arrival the girls were already well into the bridal preps so after a few kind introductions from Kayleigh it was straight to work. As the girls were running to time I was able to have a brief catch up with Matt. He too was also at The Casa Hotel getting ready in a room nearby. With the bridal preps almost complete it was time for me to slip away and make my way to the next venue.
Casa Hotel Yateley To Taplins Place
Taplins Place in Hartley Wintney was to be the venue for today’s wedding celebrations. The ceremony took place outside under the Pagoda overlooking the lake with the guests seated around looking on. Following the ceremony guests were able to enjoy a drinks reception whilst admiring the stunning venue grounds. The happy couple took a short timeout to themselves to enjoy the first moments of being husband and wife. The couple used this opportunity to slide into the back of the wedding car. The chauffeur took them for a quick spin whilst the couple enjoyed a glass or two of champagne snuggled in the back seat.
The reception drinks were flowing along with the harmonies of the live singer in the background. The couple soon rejoined their guests for a few photo opportunities. Before long it was time for all to take their seats inside the barn to a lavish buffet wedding breakfast. Guests were spoilt for choice with the selection of wood fire pizzas, hog roast and seafood Paella. Many guests couldn’t resist the opportunity for seconds, admittedly, me being one of them. After a selection of sweet deserts it was time for coffee in the gardens.
As the sun slowly started to set the evening guests started to arrival.
The couple soon got the evening celebrations underway with the cutting of the cake followed by their first dance. The entertainment kept guests busy with a disco for all with dancing feet and our ever popular Photobooth for those that dare to grab a prop and brave the fun.
