Will and Sarah’s – Soulton Hall Spring Wedding

Countryside Soulton Hall Spring Wedding -Will and Sarah

So here we have Will and Sarah’s gorgeous Soulton Hall Spring Wedding, and what a dream and incredibly entertaining wedding!! Sarah and Will met in Australia a few years back and been together ever since living in various countries. They have now moved back to Will’s home town and currently doing up a beautiful coffee shop in Hoole, Chester – their new venture in married life. (Can not wait to drop by and see it!) They have been so busy doing this and also planning their wedding.

It was emotional!

Love seeing emotional happy tears! Will had been given a wonderful pocket watch from Sarah and a wedding gift, to finish off his outfit. And Sarah had a beautiful bouquet from Will. Both these gorgeous gift had triggered the tears and they continued for the rest of the day!

The speeches were brilliant, I think the funniest and most loving I have been fortunate to witness. Will’s best man, Jonnah, had everyone it fits of laughter from beginning to end. Will and Jonnah and been best buddies since they were tiny. To witness their relationship (in between laughing… and photographing the speeches) made me reflect on my own children who are really close with a few of their friends. It just made me think that I hope they grow to be in a similar position to what they were, reeling off incredibly funny stories and quite clearly inseparable through life so far, wherever in the world they may be!

Oil rape seed field

The beautiful thing about being at this Soulton Hall spring wedding is that the Ashton family maintain Soulton Hall and its surrounding fields as a working farm as well as a historical and rustic Shropshire wedding venue. Being a spring wedding there was an abundance of oil rape seed flowering in the field which obviously we had to make the most of!

It gave Will and Sarah a chance to catch up  away from their guests before they all sat down for the wedding breakfast.
