Bryony & Jörg | Dorset House School
18th March 2015
Bryony & Jörg's wedding day was totally personal and utterly unique; not only was it filled with lots of little vintage and handmade details, this my first ever bilingual wedding! Dorset House School is nestled into some wonderful views across the South Downs and with the accompanying fantastic autumnal weather, this wedding will have a place in my heart for a very long time.
I met Bryony in a gorgeous holiday cottage not far from their venue, where the atmosphere was so relaxed as the girls did their hair, applied their makeup and chatted about the day to come, all set to the calming sounds of Classic FM.
I then made my way to Dorset House to meet Jörg and his two best men (one English and one German!) for a few shots before the guests started to arrive and the impressive barn was filled. The Ceremony, with some English and some German readings, was absolutely lovely and it wasn't long before the happy couple could make their way outside onto the fabulous lawns in some gorgeous sunlight - who'd have thought the British weather could be so incredible in November!
After some group shots and some couple portraits around the grounds, the meal commenced, followed by the speeches (of course the Best Men's was done in both languages!), the cutting of the gorgeous homemade cake and then a fantastic Ceildeh to finish off.
What more could you want from a wedding than a very happy couple on a gloriously happy day. Huge congratulations Bryony & Jörg.
