This intimate boho wedding at the wonderful Mount Amelia was a real joy to document. Also known as Ingoldisthorpe Hall and Cottages, this fabulous property sits at an elevated position with unmatched views across the Wash. And the sunsets are outstanding. They just go on, and on and on.
Lucie and Dan had booked Mount Amelia for their intimate boho themed wedding a few months before meeting me. They had exclusive use of the Hall and Cottages for about a week and took the opportunity to have a holiday there with their family either side of their wedding! How fantastic.
It also meant that they were not rushing to set up and take down after their wedding. Their outdoor boho wedding was everything they planned it to be: very relaxed, child friendly and they wanted unposed wedding photos which is exactly how I work. Although it was late summer the weather was just perfect. Just look at those blue skies! The next day it poured with rain and it was as if Autumn had begun.
Their boho wedding ceremony was under one of the enormous conifers in the garden. Set in front of a lovely macrame wedding arch with just their immediate family and very close friends, this was a lovely small and intimate wedding. The setting was fantastic and Lucie looked absolutely wonderful as she walked from the main Hall across the grass to Dan for the ceremony.
The wedding reception was all outdoors in the beautiful sunshine under the stretch tents and on the garden grass. It was a wonderfully relaxing and intimate setting.
Lucie and Dan flipped their speeches and had them at the back of the Hall over looking the Wash in the golden rays of the setting sun. Tea, coffee and platters of homemade cakes followed just before Dan’s band Max Headroom set up inside the Hall.
The band played classic Indie hits and got everyone bouncing. Dan joined in the second set and played a few songs before his showstopping moment when he sang to Lucie and they then had their first dance. It was a beautiful moment to be part of.
