Dewsall Court weddings rock!
About the wedding photographers
We have photographed over twenty Dewsall Court weddings so far, so we know what we are talking about. This wedding venue is local to us and we love it so much! We have seen spring, summer, autumn and winter weddings there and all of them were beautiful. I thought it would be a good idea to tell you a bit more about this fantastic venue and also share some ideas with you. This venue offers so much and you can create your ow unique wedding there. Dewsall team is just amazing and will help you organize the best wedding ever.
There is just so many options and locations to use for your wedding photography. The views are just breathtaking. After so many weddings photographed there, every next time we’re there, we discover something new. Did you know that they have a beautiful lake as well? And I have seen a wedding ceremony taking place on a jetty there. If you have your own cider company, you could also install your own yurt and serve free cider to all your wedding guests. What we really love about this venue is how flexible and accommodating Dewsall Court is to all their couples. So… let’s see what Dewsall Court has to offer.
First of all, unlike many other venues, Dewsall Court offers a really unique experience. You can actually arrive the day before and get to know the venue with all your family. That makes such a big difference. Why? Because on your wedding day you feel relaxed. We have NEVER photographed a stressful wedding at Dewsall. It feels like each and every couple feels there like at home. Dewsall Court offers so many amazing rooms that have recently been redecorated and they all look stunning.
The girls can just enjoy a relaxing morning while I just blend in and photograph them…
Whereas the boys will surely use the snooker table! Usually my husband, the other half of our photography team, will be with them.
The groom and the groomsmen can get ready both in the main house and in the barn rooms on site.
The choice is really incredible and we love photographing ceremonies in all those locations. You can choose to get married in your church and then drive to Dewsall court, or choose one of the following options… There are even more options such as a humanist ceremony by the lake. How do you see yourself on your wedding day?
Outdoor ceremonies + signing the register in the study.
This type of ceremonies is more and more popular and works really well in the summer months. From the wedding photographers’ point of view, this is the perfect choice. What is amazing about Dewsall is the fact that you can actually have plan A (sunny weather, outdoor ceremony) and plan B (indoor, just in case). You can have the canopy or you can choose to get married just under the beautiful sky. Imagine your guests enjoying
themselves on the lawn, breathing the fresh air and admiring the views. Just perfect!
Or you can choose to get married in the Dewsall Court church!
The vicar is really helpful, friendly and accommodating. He is one of our most favorite vicars ever! Trust us – we are wedding photographers and sometimes photographing a church wedding can be really tricky. Photographing Dewsall Court church weddings is definitely not that. The church is small and therefore really sweet and beautiful. Your guests will definitely enjoy the stroll among the apple trees and the church ceremony will be truly magical and unforgettable.
You can also have your wedding ceremony in Dewsall Court’s Conservatory
So unique! Below you will see Genevra and Daniel. They decided to walk down the aisle together and that was amazing! This is what we LOVE about weddings. Every couple is just so unique! The wedding ceremony in the conservatory is perfect for smaller weddings and we just love the light there.
The Wainhouse Barn ceremony
Perfect for bigger weddings. In the summer the glass doors are open whereas during the winter months they remain closed to keep you warm. And the candles and their reflections in the glass just add to the magic of your day. From the wedding photography point of view, the best location for the ceremony is in front of the big wooden door at the back of the Wainhouse.
THE CONFETTI SHOWER
This can happen literally EVERYWHERE at Dewsall. On the front lawn, in front of the main building, outside the Wainhouse Barn or in front of the church. One practical tip about the confetti from the wedding photographers’ point of view: make sure you add some white petals to your confetti. It will look amazing on the photos:
FAMILY AND FRIENDS – THE GROUP PICTURES
The same rule applies to the group pictures. Dewsall Court is so beautiful that the pictures can be taken literally everywhere. And, as wedding photographers we can assure you that if it rains – Dewsall Court looks equally beautiful inside! We really love the group pictures. They are important AND you can have fun when being photographed! We just love having fun during the group pictures!
Dewsall Court weddings rock! The venue provides stunning backdrops for your wedding photography. Every time of the year at Dewsall Court looks magical and your photos will be unique. There is so many hidden corners and sunken gardens available, this is just unbelievable! Plus on top of that we can use the sunlight to our advantage and achieve different looks depending on the time of the day. We also LOVE the night portraits. Endless possibilities there at Dewsall!
Indoor, outdoor, depending on the weather and time of the year. Again, Dewsall Court is just perfect when it is sunny, it rains or snows. And the food is just AMAZING! I know other wedding venues lose their clients because of the food. This doesn’t apply to Dewsall. And the canapes look stunning every time we see and take pictures of them!
THE WAINHOUSE BARN AND THE WEDDING BREAKFAST
So much space in there! The Wainhouse can accommodate 120-170 guests which is pretty amazing! Plus somehow you feel so cozy when you’re in there! Decorate the barn however you like, add flowers, candles, bunting and even a yurt with free cider for your guests! We, as wedding photographers, will make sure all this is captured for you. This place is where the magic happens. Your guests will love it. The bar is there, the bonfire is next to the barn and you can roast your marshmallows there too! Don’t forget the super cute swing at the back – I mean, what else could you need??
THE DANCING AND THE EVENING
Now that the main parts of your day are done, just relax! And take it to the dance floor! We have seen and photographed some super cool parties at Dewsall Court! Yes, there were rounds of shots and yes, the drinks got spilled and the glass got broken – but WOW! We have witnessed some of the craziest evening parties there!
So… what do you think about this wedding venue? We really do think Dewsall Court weddings rock! Properly and totally ROCK! If you want to read more, here are some other posts we’ve written about Dewsall Court in the past, have a look:
