Melinda & Dave
Back to the hidden gem of a venue, Yarlington Barn and close to home too, we travel far and wide for weddings so only having to pop up the road was great for us.
First stop Melinda’s family home…. Lots of lovely moments today including meeting Melinda’s horse Polo and their dog Lola and not forgetting the family! Prep done and everyone ready, it was time to leave for Yarlington. Unbeknown to us and the bridal party there was a road closure making the journey a little fraught, and with us over taking the brides car to get their before they did was definitely a highlight for me! We found Dave waiting patiently in the ceremony room looking a little nervous but excited to be seeing his bride very soon. Guests all seated and with the sound of the music in the background Melinda made her walk towards Dave, and what a lovely ceremony it was, with lots of laughs throughout. Outside in the sunshine and after the confetti shot it was time for some pictures in front of the vintage Rolls Royce followed by Dave’s other love….The Beast! Moving on round to the beautiful grounds and lakes, Melinda and Dave greeted their guests to the sound of Dennis Demille singing in the background. A bit later on and we took a stroll over to the orchard for some pictures, including a few with the swans and their baby cygnets! Back to the barn and it was time for a picnic…such a great idea guys. With speeches and toasts done we headed out for a special picture of Melinda with her sister Kelly. Everything was going so well until Melinda found the one and only muddy spot and stepped right in it, thank goodness for wet wipes!
The day ended for us with the cutting of the cake and the first dance, thank you so much Melinda and Dave you were a joy to work with!
