Mr & Mrs Foster - A Country House Wedding at The Kingston Estate
Mr & Mrs Foster
Some of my favourite wedding venues have to be those located just over the border into Devon (Sorry Cornwall!) and WOW, this was no exception. Totnes, a market town situated at the head of the estuary of The River Dart, lies closely to this impressive venue, The Kingston Estate.
Having visited for our initial meeting with the lovely Liz & Max, we knew that Kingston was particularly special. We weren't quite prepared for just how majestic it would become; with the combined ambience brought by the guests, music, decor and a sprinkling of party animal & open mic come 10pm!
The venue comprised of a grand Marble Hall, a fab rustic outdoor Barn and a beautiful Walled Garden where the Ceremony took place. Surrounding this, a Parterre Garden (visible in some of the couples shots). Last, but certainly not least, the Undercroft; an extraordinary Nightclub running the entirety of the Building itself, inclusive of a contemporary bar and dance floor area, cleverly constructed between some very decadent brick arches.
Once the marriage ceremony was finished the wedding party gathered for drinks, nibbles and chatter whilst Bride & Groom were stolen for some shots around the grounds. We concentrated on the backdrop being the house itself, a floral maze and a tunnel of trees, which really set the scene for some of the Images.
Back inside, the dining room faced onto panoramic views of the grounds, whilst the tables were adorned with rustic floral arrangements, colourful treats and beautifully designed Menu's.
Liz & Max were flamboyant, friendly and so clearly happy in each other's company. From an instrumental walk down the aisle (literally), to a show of sparklers during the golden hour, it will forever be a day to remember.... Take a look at the visual story below and soak in the atmosphere for yourselves!
Below are a small selection of my favourite images from the day. Enjoy!
