Ready for something warm on this chilly winter’s evening? Here are some highlights from Nicola & Matt’s wedding at Athelhampton House in Dorset. With a 4pm ceremony in November this was one of my most challenging weddings yet, with only a hint of the setting sun as they exited the ceremony, much of the day was lit by candlelight, and oh so dark. But historic Athelhampton is a beautiful wedding venue for a winter wedding, with roaring fires heating the wood panelled grand hall, it has such a cosy feel.
Nicola got ready at The Old Manor in Kingston Maurward, I just loved her classic style, in the vintagey lace dress and faux fur stole. She carried a stunning bouquet of blue iris and thistles, to complement her bridesmaid’s blue dress. Matt looked dapper in top hat and morning suit. After the ceremony in Athelhampton’s Great Hall and a few photos before the light went completely, the bride and groom and guests warmed up with mulled wine before sitting down to eat a hearty dinner in the coach house, and celebrating into the evening to the band.
The full gallery is online for friends and family here. For everyone else, here’s a little flavour of the day…

Winter wedding season is upon us, and the dark nights and chilly weather make for warm and cosy weddings indoors. Nicola and Matt got married at Athelhampton House in Dorset, an opulent 15th manor house filled with historical details and snug open fires, the perfect setting for a winter’s evening celebrations. I’ve picked this photo from the ceremony as a sneak peek, I just love the moment between just the two of them in amongst the room of happy friends and family. Congratulations Mr & Mrs Sleat!
