Lyde Court Through The Seasons

I absolutely love shooting at Lyde Court wedding venue, there is so much magic and excitement there.

I know all the nooks, crannies and photo-op spots, so you’ll be in safe hands with me.

 

I’m an ex-Londoner who fell in love with the Cotswolds. I then fell in love with my soul mate and married him.

I believe in love.

I am a wedding and boudoir photographer and Mummy to a gorgeous little boy and two crazy pups.

I would love to document your special day and give you beautiful memories to last a lifetime.

 

Thank you to the amazing couples that have let me share their Wedding Photography from Lyde Court. Georgie and Andy, Meg and James, Kate and Neil, Tasha and Dan, and most recently, Sarah and Charlie.

 

Also, huge thanks to the owners and staff at Lyde Court who always make me feel at home, with a cuppa and a biscuit and look after me beautifully, without fail.

Im really looking forward to attending Lyde Court’s Summer Showcase on Wednesday 14th August from 5pm and hope to chat to lots of lovely couples about their exciting day!

Andrew & Annie~ A Village Fete Home Wedding

“Andrew spent weeks researching, asking friends and looking online. When he found Sheryl he instantly knew he had found the right one and we booked her up quick!! We were not disappointed! The photos are amazing and really capture the feel of the day!”

Andrew & Annie
13th July 2019
In the garden of Annie’s childhood home ‘Honeyend’.

What made you decide to get married where you did?
It’s home and such a happy place! We didn’t even consider anywhere else!

How long was your wedding planning process?
Andrew proposed in August 2018 so just under a year. But I think he has been planning his wedding day since he was a little boy!

How would you describe your wedding day in 3 words?
SO MUCH LOVE

Dress designer?
Off the hanger from Monsoon. No alterations other than being taken up a few inches by the mummies.

Theme or colour scheme?
The official theme was village fete. But I think the biggest theme of the day was how amazing our friends and family are. It was a real DIY wedding and we just embraced and welcomed any contributions people wanted to make. You would struggle to find a guest who hadn’t contributed in some way!!

Flowers?
All grown and arranged by family and friends. We had a lot of help for the button holes, bouquets and flower crowns from a family friend Rose Preston who did the most fantastic job!

What did you eat?
The most delicious canapés made by the Sanderson family!
Picnic baskets for the wedding breakfast put together by us but brimming with treats made or grown by various people.
Prosecco Ice cream served from a tricycle (https://dreamsofchocolate.co.uk/) with home made HEART SHAPED meringues made with Honeyend eggs by my very talented cousin Sally.
And of course a locally sourced hog roast in the evening (https://www.facebook.com/Hog-Roast-of-Gloucestershire-1789063341334352/).
We had Honeyend made apple juice, and we even had our very own beer! Designed and brewed in the south of France by my sister and brother in law, Rosie and Jonathan (https://www.facebook.com/FABperigord/), and transported over by my uncle Archie, along with all the French wine!!

And the wedding cake?
We had 4!
Two were made by Andy’s auntie Jenny. A fruit cake and a coffee and walnut.
A raspberry and white chocolate by my cousin Sally, and a gin and tonic cake by a close friend Anna. All delicious and beautiful.

We also had a tower of cheese which was a gift from Andrew’s godparents Irene and Alan.

Oxleaze Barn ~ Rach & Nate

“After trudging through the internet we finally came across Sheryl’s beautiful website with a stunning gallery and that sold it to us straight away! When we met for the engagement shoot, my husband and I were both very nervous and slightly awkward but Sheryl made us feel as ease very quickly. This was a good starting point leading up to the big day.

On our wedding day, Sheryl was brilliant, made us all feel at ease and had a few laughs at the same time. We are so pleased with our photos and will cherish them forever. Also you get a stunning USB stick to keep too! Thank you so much Sheryl, highly recommended!”

Rach & Nate and all of their family and friends braved Storm Hannah with such humour and fun. Nothing could spoil their day and they were a delight to be around.
It was my first visit to Oxleaze and I am already in love with this venue! Run by such lovely people and it is well look after and the grounds LOVINGLY tended to. A real gem.

Please enjoy their blog. What a photogenic couple!

Dumbleton Hall ~ Emma & Paul

We completed a lot of research on the internet before picking Sheryl. We chose our top six wedding photographers in the Gloucestershire area and then spent time scrolling through all of the galleries on their websites. Sheryl stood out by miles against the rest! Her website was very eye catching, creative graphics and memorable. Her photos looked unique, natural and had the wow factor for us.

We were amazed when we got our sneak peeks through. Our wedding day had sunshine, rain showers, stormy black clouds and a rainbow and Sheryl successfully captured every season that day! She captured moments from the day which we didn’t even see so when we looked through our wedding gallery, we relived our special day again and more!! Every single guest thought the photos were wow and captured so many magical moments from the day (we loved our guests being so impressed).

I had arrived back home and was reading through our wedding guest book with my family and Paul in the lounge when my phone was going mad with likes and comments……my guests had a lot of love for Sheryl’s photos!! Every photo I saw of hers, i just smiled and felt this overwhelming feeling of happiness. #cloud9

The photographs will last a lifetime so we knew it was one of the most important decisions for the day.

Emma & Paul

26th October 2018

Dumbleton Hall, Nr Evesham.

 

What made you decide to get married where you did?

You enter the grounds through a long driveway where you pass stunning scenary and wildlife. The hall is a beautiful building full of character and each window has a lovely view of the flower beds and oak trees. The lake is what clinched it for us, it even has black swans.

How would you describe your wedding day in 3 words?

Romantic. Rustic. Laughter.

What was the proposal like?

Paul knew he wanted to have a private and intimate proposal. I had been out for dinner with friends and came home to red rose petals up the stairs, past valentines cards on each step and a note saying follow the petals upstairs. So I walked up stairs to find a room of candles, rose petals everywhere, chocolates, bottle of champagne with glasses and a note saying ‘Press play’ on the TV remote. Paul had created his own video about our relationship with the acoustic version of ‘Slide away’ playing in the background and it finished with a question…..when the video stopped he came into the lounge and got down on one knee. I was already crying at this point. Such an amazing moment!

How long was your wedding planning process?

We enjoyed being engaged for 6 months then began planning which took about a year. The venue was the first thing we booked.

How did you choose your photographer?

Sheryl stood out by miles for us. Her photos were classy, unique and had the wow factor which is what we were after. The photographs will last a lifetime so we knew it was one of the most important decisions for the day. We were so excited when the initial photos started to come through and kept sending them all to our friends and family who also loved them.

On the day…

My school friend is a professional hairdresser so luckily she did my hair in a soft up do and natural curls with a diamante clasp on one side. It was perfect and exactly what I wanted.

Although I had a make up trial before the wedding, i thought i would do my own make up on the day. I went to the Laura Mercier counter at John Lewis a few weeks before and bought make up especially to aid flash photography. I felt confident doing my own make up and knew exactly what I look I wanted. I also now have all of this lovely make up to use.

My dress was by Rebecca Ingram. I then had an Italian lace, off the shoulder bolero top which I took off in the evening. I bought both in Cardiff from Sarah Jayne bridal shop.

The groom wore his RAF uniform. Number 1’s for the ceremony and then Number 5’s for the meal and evening reception.

The bridesmaids wore a tight fitting off the shoulder, dusky pink floor length dress by Jessica.

Our theme and colours were very natural, white and green with a splash of dusty pink. We used a lot of wood in our decorations too. It was important for us to have rustic natural looking colours for the time of year.

Our flowers were memory lane roses, cream spray roses, pink seeded eucalyptus, grey eucalyptus, pink wax flower, cream freesia, gyposophilia and  lots of foliage for the garlands.

We had two wedding cakes. Our first cake was a four tier buttercream icing with 3 different flavoured sponges. Chocolate orange, carrot and salted caramel. It was delicious.

I then had a family friend make us a traditional 3 tier cake with decorative icing with lace and iced flowers. This cake was vanilla sponge and fruit cake, another delicious cake.
