Dumbleton Hall Wedding Photographer – Kate and Dave

063 - Dumbleton Hall Wedding Photographer - Kate and Dave

I recently had the great pleasure in photographing Kate and Dave’s wedding which was held at St Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Studley and Dumbleton Hall near Evesham in the Cotswolds. It was a wonderful day with the bride’s family making the journey from their home in Poland to join the celebrations.

The day started with bridal preparations at Kate’s sister’s house in Redditch before we made our way to St Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Studley for the ceremony. St Mary’s dates from 1853 and was built with the help of the Throckmorton family from nearby Coughton Court. It’s a lovely building and it’s open, airy nature allowed for some great vantage points for photos during the ceremony.

Kate wore a magnificent bejewelled Maggie Sottero dress which was from Emily Eve Bridal Boutique in Birmingham whilst Dave and his groomsmen wore grey morning suits from Nicholas Smith Formal Suit Hire in Worcester.

Once all the formalities had been completed everyone made their way into the Cotswolds for the reception which was held at the stunning grade II listed Dumbleton Hall. The original Dumbleton Hall can be traced back to the 14th century and was the ancestral home of the Cocks family. However the building fell into disrepair in the 1700s and was eventually demolished and replaced with the current manor house in the 1830s. The building has an interesting history and became well known for its popular house parties with former Poet Laureate John Betjeman being a regular guest. During the Second World War, the Hall was allegedly considered as a suitable alternative venue for the House of Lords.

The bride and groom were met upon their arrival at Dumbleton Hall with a pipe and drum march provided by two of their guests. It was then onto the drinks reception where another quartet of guests entertained everyone with a stunning musical accompaniment on the harp, cello and a pair of violins prior to the wedding breakfast.

Here are a few photos from Kate and Dave’s big day . . .
