Jats and Richard’s Le Manoir garden wedding fell on a picture perfect summer’s day. White fluffy clouds lazily rolled across blue skies. Bees and butterflies coyly kissed borders of lavender. The golden evening ideal for our couple’s late outdoor ceremony at La Belle Époque. After the I Do’s guests sipped champagne in the sunshine and indulged in amazing food from the famous Raymond Blanc kitchens. The occasion had a relaxed and magical atmosphere that our Grooms could enjoy with Cooper, the Dog of Honour, by their side. Congratulations to our handsome couple. We loved capturing their fabulous Le Manoir wedding day celebration!
Jats and Richard have an eye for detail that can be seen throughout their stylish wedding day.
They incorporated an adorable reference to their pet shih tzu in the design of their Smythson stationery.
Every finishing touch for our Grooms was equally swish and well thought out…
Jats and Richard prepared for the wedding together in the luxurious Sandalwood garden suite at Le Manoir.
Big patio doors opened up to a garden perfect for Cooper and with lovely natural light for photography too.
Jats and Richard looked dapper in Alexander McQueen and Prada suits that reflected each Groom’s taste.
Cooper, as Dog of Honour, was equally dashing in a checkered doggie bow tie and a Mulberry collar.
Jats donned a statement Alexander Mcqueen blue velvet tuxedo jacket, white rose buttonhole and robot cufflinks.
Richard opted for a blue tie, yellow rose buttonhole and a luxe grey Prada suit.
We headed to the stunning Le Manoir gardens for Jats and Richard’s portraits.
We got to know our Grooms earlier in the year on their destination engagement session on the Devon coast.
The experience helps our couples feel at ease so they can simply enjoy this exciting time together…
Having their portraits taken before the ceremony also meant they could enjoy the reception uninterrupted.
After portraits we headed to the ceremony location to capture the space before guests’ arrival.
The Manor House was basking in the sunshine…
And all the little details that make the gardens at Le Manoir so special shone!
The La Belle Époque gardens made a dreamy setting for an outdoor wedding ceremony.
Le Manoir’s in house florist L’atelier aux Fleurs created an ode to the season with white and yellow roses.
Patterns of light fell playfully through the glass conservatory blurring the lines between inside and outside.
Shortly before 5 o’clock our handsome Grooms were ready to walk down the aisle at Le Manoir!
Being massive animal lovers we get so excited when our couples incorporate their pets into their wedding day.
Jats and Richard’s made an epic entrance through the magnificent gates at La Belle Époque.
They joined 35 of their dearest friends and family members for an intimate ceremony.
Filled with heartfelt moments…
…And promises of a lifetime of love and loyalty.
After the ceremony concluded our Grooms were showered in confetti!
Guests then enjoyed drinks and canapes in the glorious La Belle Époque garden at Le Manoir.
Jats and Richard really wanted the atmosphere of their wedding day captured…
Including speeches that were heartfelt…
….And at times touchingly humerous!
Jats and Richard mixed complimentary hues of yellow and blue with classic white for their wedding details.
The garden was brought inside the restaurant at La Belle Époque with floral flatware and fresh flowers.
L’atelier aux Fleurs created individual herbal posies for each guest.
With the candles lit it was time for everyone to enjoy 5 exquisite courses created by the Le Manoir team!
Everyone received Biscuiteer wedding favours in an assortment of jolly ginger characters!
The evening was filled with good wine and conversation…
…and beautiful plates of food almost too pretty to eat!
As the last of the summer sun disappeared from the sky…
…And the last course was savoured; the evening continued with dancing, cocktails and cosying around fire pits!
Congratulations Jats and Richard; we hope you enjoy reliving the wonderful memories from this special day for many years to come!
