A June Wedding Reception at Oakham Castle

It was a welcome return to this special historic venue, for Jack & Sophie’s wedding reception at Oakham Castle.

Jack & Sophie’s wedding ceremony was held at All Saints Church, right in the old centre of Oakham. The setting is very picturesque, and all seemed to be tingling in expectation in today’s summer sunshine.

Jack looked dead smart in his and recent hair & beard trim courtesy of Oakham’s Turkish barber’s emporium. Similarly suited was his best lady, close on hand for morale support and buttonhole adjustment. The pink Gerbera flowers combining well with their ties and pocket squares.

I loved the personalised matching wedding rings, designed and created by Richard Chown

Sophie’s 2 grown up bridesmaids and cute flower girls arrived ahead, with time to practice some walking down the aisle and general bouquet handling. The lovely little flower girl sisters were equipped with floral magic wands and so adorable to photograph. Flowers designed by Pollen in Oakham.

All inside the church to await the arrival of our beautiful bride and how amazing did she look? What an exquisitely detailed veil by Amberspicebridal! Again, the pink Gerberas popping out within the floral design.

2 little flower girls did so well, bravely leading the way, with the paired aisle walks. Sophie greets Jack and were underway for the ceremony. The light inside All Saints was amazing and I hope the natural moments show glimpses of the love and happiness of Sophie & Jack’s marriage.

After some group photos, it was a short stroll for the wedding party, via Oakham’s Market Square to the wedding reception at Oakham Castle. A fine original building, with unique interiors.

Delicious canapes and the sumptuous wedding banquet were provided by Castle Cottage caterers and heartily enjoyed by all. The evening light came good for some outdoor shots of the couple.

Dancing got underway with the excellent Djingo Django band providing some gypsy jazz/samba sounds.

Thank you, Jack & Sophie, for having me for a wonderful wedding day.
