// St MARYS THE VIRGIN CHURCH, THORPE ARNOLD – BARNSDALE LODGE, RUTLAND //
Wow! What a day Chloe & Joe celebrated. Sunshine for the queens jubilee, arrival of the bride and long in to the afternoon for us all to celebrate in the gardens at Barnsdale Lodge in Rutland. The morning started at the home of Chloe’s mum and dads, in Melton Mowbray with the bridesmaids and Chloe having Prosecco and chilling out with the most fantastic cold buffet including mums signature quiche. The excitement was high and the atmosphere was mirroring the street parties from the street parties of the jubilee on the television.
When the time came for Chloe to step into her dress from Kibworth Wedding Belles, she was still feeling very chilled yet very enthusiastic and excited for the day to pan out. Dad’s first look was a lovely moment especially when he shed a tear or two at how grown up and beautiful Chloe looked when he saw her for the first time. When I left to meet the boys at the church, I arrived to see so many guests in their best suits and dresses playfully teasing Joe until his family turned up and everyone prepared for the arrival of the stunning bride.
A simple yet classy service at the lovely St Mary the Virgin Church at Thorpe Arnold, Melton Mowbray lasting around 45 minutes and then Chloe and Joe were officially Mr and Mrs! Following a selection of group family photographs in the entrance doorway of the church we then all made our way over the the lovely Barnsdale Lodge close to Rutland Water. Here we were treated to further group photographs and a stunning couple portrait in the gardens of the venue. Speeches were given before the wedding breakfast from the father of the bride, the groom and the best man. A combination of emotional and comedic speeches settled the room ready for the meal honest heartfelt words were spoken.
As soon as the evening guests had arrived and were welcomed the bride and groom decided to crack on with the party, cutting the cake and having their first dance as husband and wife. The dance floor then saw a large influx of incredible dancers and party go-ers !
