Holly & Rory’s Cain Manor wedding was here. You may recognise this lovely couple from their Easter engagement session. They both met in the military, and are more used to assault courses then dressing up in glamours glows. As a salute to their military background, Rory and many of his guests decided to wear traditional military clothing, and wow the boys did look dapper!

It might have been a rainy afternoon at Cain Manor but it didn’t dampen anyone’s sprits as everyone celebrated Holly & Rory’s love with happiness, enthusiasm and a whole lot of joy.

I absolutely adore the Wedding stationery by Vanilla Retro Stationery. During Holly & Rory’s engagement session, I spotting the invites out on the table and just had to ask to take a set home with me to photograph.

Cain Manor’s bridal suite was a buzz of excitement as I entered to photograph Holly’s bridal prep. Wearing matching bridesmaids pyjamas, the girls looked very stylish. Holly worn her own, suitably white and classy, pyjama short set.

The bridesmaids gifts were purchased from Katie Loxton and Highland Angel. The presents were a big hit with the girls.

Holly and her mum went inside the bathroom to dress Holly in her gown. There were gasps all around the room as Holly stepped out and made her grand entrance.

As Holly’s father turned up, those gasps turned to tears of joy and pride. It was a truly beautiful moment.

I was absolutely blown away but the beauty of St Luke’s Church. The beautiful stain glass windows and cobbled stone was the perfect setting to have such a heartfelt ceremony.

During the bridal prep at Cain Manor, Holly informed me that was they leave the church there will be a special military sword salute. Being my first military wedding, I was so excited about seeing this in action. It was lovely, causing the guests much entertainment as they clapped and cheered the boys along.

Rory chose his brother to be his best man, so there was a lot of brotherly love, as the boys teased one another in their speeches. Holly didn’t escape as her very proud father told a few story’s from her childhood which had the place in stitches.

Towards the end of the group photos the heavens opened, so we rescheduled the couples portraits for after the wedding breakfast. Thankfully although it was still slightly raining, it cleared up enough for bride and group photos in Cain Manor’s beautiful meadow.
