23rd May saw our first "Steam Wedding" reception here. The Bride drove herself to the church in her own Steam Lorry and then Bride and Groom arrived at Shillingstone House on a traction engine, driven by the bride in full wedding dress! 8 other engines followed. The reception took place in the field as the lawns would not have taken the weight of the engines
Photographs taken by Debra Radford unless mentioned otherwise
The bride and her future mother in law had taken so much time and trouble sourcing and making the decorations for the marquee using browns and greens which blended so beautifully into the country around. (http://www.oakleafmarquees.co.uk )
Lunch took place outside on long trestle tables with guests choosing from an amazing array of food.
The Bride and Groom had photographs taken in the grounds.
After dancing the night away with their guests, they spent the night in their Shepherd's Hut under the stars.
