Sue and Philip’s Brinsop Court wedding took place on perhaps one of the hottest days of the year, 4th August 2018. Brinsop Court is a Grade I listed moated manor house, in the Herefordshire village of Brinsop.Dating back to the early fourteenth century, Brinsop Court is filled with excellent period features including large fireplaces, ornate ceilings and wooden panelling. The house, with medieval foundations is surrounded by lawns, encircled by a moat and benefits from a large private 800 acre estate. The house has been occupied by a succession of noble families and celebrities. After an extensive refurbishment, Brinsop Court is now primarily an exclusive wedding venue available for weekday or weekend celebrations and is owned by a local Herefordshire family. This was my first time photographing a wedding at Brinsop Court, as I arrived the house was a buzz with preparations for the day. As the children played in the generous gardens, the mens were busy stocking the bar as the ladies perfected themselves in the bedrooms. There was a marriage ceremony in the The Elizabethan Library, with it’s sculptural ceiling, huge fireplace, and an antique ornate ceiling, it is in this room that William Wadsworth gained inspiration for his wonderful poetry. After a short interval for drinks on the lawn we made our way to St George’s Church in the village, where additional guests had gathered for a church blessing. After this it was back to Brinsop Court for further drinks on the lawn, facilitated by a pop up gin bar adjacent to the swan occupied moat. The wedding breakfast was served in the banqueting hall, with its arch leaded windows and vaulted ceiling. The courtyard provided a cool spot shield from the evening sun for more drinks before the evening celebrations continued.
