Nonsuch Mansion Winter Wedding
Oh what a joy it was to be back at the beautiful Nonsuch and to be there on such a glorious Winter’s day. You never know with December or ‘off season’ weddings (what does that even mean? Weddings are all year round affairs these days, and rightly so) whether the weather will be on your side. Thankfully Nonsuch Mansion is one of the rare gems of a venue that looks amazing in low light, as it has such big windows and tall ceilings. If you’re still browsing venues and you’re looking at wintertime, you really must have a look at it!
Anyway, I digress, this wedding was all about the absolutely lovely Yueqi and Nicolas, who I had the pleasure of meeting earlier on in the year at another lovely couple’s wedding. They kindly recommended me and the rest is history! The whole day was held at the beautiful house so it made it very easy to capture some shots of both of them before the ceremony. It was hard to move without the stunning displays of flowers adorning just about every surface, done by none other than Mad Lillies, who are just up the road. I LOVED the colour scheme, simply perfect for any time of year, but the dark velvet tones complimented the time of year beautifully.
A lovely, smiley ceremony was filled with laughter and some brilliant readings, during which I kept glancing out the window praying the winter light that was peeping round the house would stay. And it did! Perfect confetti in the sunshine followed by a quick walk around the gardens and we were back to join the guests for the rest of the reception.
A stunning meal was followed by just the loveliest, heartfelt speeches. It was also really lovely to hear a touching Best Man speech, rather than a typical roasting! Although that said, Yueqi’s friends didn’t leave much out in their homage to her! :) Brutal but very funny indeed!
Their first dance was performed by the brilliant band, and the dance-moves were amazing. All in all, a totally perfect wedding day to capture and be a part of. I won’t forget these two in a hurry, and I am SO glad I chose to accept another December wedding despite always telling myself I’m allowed a month off! Have a nose at some of my favourites from their day.
