A Geeky Wedding at Soughton Hall, Denbigh
At the beginning of January we headed over to the beautiful Soughton Hall to work with Sarah & James on what was a fantastically unique and personal wedding.
We were excited to work with Sarah & James from their first email, telling us how they are also known as Fox & Bear (though in their case Sarah is Sarah-Bear and James is the Fox due to being a fiery red-head). Added to the fact that they are both super-nerds, this was a wedding we’ve been excited about.
Sarah & James instantly bonded over good beer, board games and sci-fi TV. Introduced by a mutual friend, they’ve been inseparable ever since.
Everything in this wedding was geared towards Sarah & James showcasing themselves as a couple. We love it when our couples pick and choose the elements of a wedding that really mean something to them. A classic house- check, 3D printed space ships as table decorations- check, Scottish kilts and bagpipes- check. The whole day reflected Sarah & James, their hobbies, their personalities, and that just made it such a special occasion to be a part of.
Soughton Hall Wedding Photos from a North Wales Photographer
Located just down the road from us in Denbigh North Wales, Soughton Hall is a stunning location. Out of view of the road, a long driveway reveals this incredible manor house. Manicured gardens sit alongside hidden nooks and crannies which provide the most beautiful, intimate backdrop for a photographer to work at. They were go good at looking after Sarah & James bringing canapés out for some mid shoot snack for us all!
We are huge advocates for doing your wedding your way. Make your wedding reflect who you are as a couple. Sarah & James’s wedding really could be a ‘how to’ in achieving this. Homemade chutney as party favours, lego bricks to sign and the aforementioned 3d printed space-ships (did I mention these were hand painted by Sarah?) are to name just a few of the personal touches these guys built into their wedding. And on the day, Sarah & James were so cool, and so relaxed. Their aim from the beginning was to marry each other and have fun doing it. We think they achieved that.
