Today’s wedding was to take place in the Tithe Barn at Ufton Court in the village of Ufton Nervet, East Berkshire. The house was originally a small medieval manor called Ufton Pole and was the home of Lord Lovell. Some of this original house remains today, including the crossway of the great hall with the original buttery and pantry doors. Lovell was made a Viscount by Edward IV and then was in Richard III’s inner circle. (For a fuller history go to http://www.uftoncourt.co.uk/index.php/our-history)
The Tithe Barn is believed to date from around the 1700’s with the majority of its original timbers still intact. A truly lovely venue for a wedding and or a reception.
Catherine and her bridesmaids got ready at her parents, Christopher and Marion’s home in Early, Reading. Christopher and his daughter travelled to Ufton Court in our wonderful 1930 Essex wedding car that we lovingly call Esther. Before you ask she is not named after anyone in particular we just like the name.
They are glad to be on their way to Ufton, excited but both a little nervous. So it was lots of great stories from the driver to help calm the nerves.
Just a quick look at their wedding car, our 1930 Essex Super Six. Her wonderful burgundy colour makes for a perfect contrast for the dress to really stand out.
Interview with the registrar completed, it’s time for the walk to the Tithe Barn where the ceremony and eventually the reception will take place.
With a beautiful dress and a large train the bridesmaids had their work cut out making sure the dress arrived at the barn without a blemish.
The dress in all its glory just as Catherine is about to enter the barn (back door in case any late guests are still arriving at the front door). Some arrived after the ceremony was over!!
Finally it is all over all the planning and soul searching is over and Catherine and Sam are married at last. Sam is a very lucky guy.
Now it’s time for the photos with the car and then off for a ten, fifteen minute drive to have a little time on their own together before getting swamped by all their relatives and other guests. Sam’s son Dillon joined them for the photos and the drive, boy did he enjoy sitting up front with the driver.
Once we got back to Ufton Court it was impossible to stop Dillon practising to be come a wedding car driver
It was a great day enjoyed by all and we wish Catherine, Sam and Dillon a great life together.28/04/2013 - 19:27
