Alex + Sam wedding film The Dairy
“I choose you, above all others, to share my life.”
Nestled in amongst weeping willows and scores of ducks and geese happily swimming beneath, is the gorgeous Dairy at Waddesdon in Buckinghamshire. On a bright April day, I was lucky to witness the marriage here of Alex and Sam, and what a happy day it was. Alex wore an exquisite sleeveless gown with a full skirt and embroidered bodice, with a delicate pearl headpiece just peeking out from her dark hair, which was swept up in a chic style. She arrived at the venue in a stately Rolls Royce, whilst her husband-to-be opted for a sleek Aston Martin as his chariot.
Alex’s bridesmaids were the epitome of soft elegance in blush pink halter-neck gowns, and Alex’s father played true to his Scottish roots in full kilt regalia. Sam was just as strapping with his band of best men in navy suits with blush pink ties. Unsurprisingly, he had to wipe away a tear as he saw his beaming bride walk down the aisle towards him- but the ceremony was more of a giggly affair than a tearful one. Sam congratulated his bride when she managed to get through her first set of words without a hiccup, muttering a heartfelt “Good job! Well done” to which she replied with a fist pump.
The next triumph was discovering that Sam’s ring did, in fact, fit him- they had their doubts when Alex first tried to put it on him! There were several laughs from the guests and even a high-5 between the couple at one point. As the new husband and wife gave each other their first kiss, there were cheers and rapturous applause from the congregation, and Alex held her bouquet aloft in triumphant bliss as they walked back down the aisle together. The guests were then able to mingle and congratulate their newly married friends, while a string quartet (decked in tartan!) played sweet music in the background to accompany the happy scene. For the reception, there were more treats, including a four tier classically white wedding cake with exquisite ‘lace’ icing detail. The couple danced for the first time under the twinkling fairy lights surrounded by their friends and family, and were soon joined by their parents as the party really began. It was a day to remember and I wish the pair all the best as they commence their wonderful life together!
