Laura + Joe | Tortworth Court, Gloucestershire | 25th November 2023

It was a perfect winters day for the wedding for Laura and Joe with the bitterly cold frost mixed with gorgeous sunshine. Bridal preparations were in full swing in the Kipling Suite with hair and makeup and music. This suite boasted natural light and stunning decor and a lovely feature fireplace.

The couple had a beautiful ceremony in the Orangery across from the De Vere Tortworth Court hotel. They had a lovely and joyous ceremony surrounded by their nearest and dearest ending with a confetti walk as they exited as husband and wife followed by formal group photos and couples portraits around the grounds.

Laura's bouquet was created by Gloucester Florists near Bristol, hair and makeup done by Celfie Hair and Makeup in Radstock and her dress from Rookery Bridal.

Speeches were conducted before the wedding breakfast which consisted with a few words from the father of the bride, best man, maid of honours and the groom; each giving a mix of laughter and emotion.

Once the evening guests had arrived the newlyweds cut the cake and had their first dance and partied the night away with their guests.
