Dewsall Court Wedding Photographer


Katherine & Ian were married at spectacular Dewsall Court in Herefordshire at the end of July. Dewsall is one of my favourite venues and I have raved about it on the blog many times before! It’s a popular country house for weekend stays and it really does feel like your own home while you are there. You can get married inside the house itself or in the newly-refurbished Wainhouse Barn, or you can get married in the charming church in the grounds, or outside in the garden. You really are spoilt for choice at Dewsall and can really make your wedding how you want it to be.


Katherine & Ian had the most perfect summer weather for their outdoor ceremony under the canopy on the Dewsall Court lawn. Katherine’s wedding dress was made especially for her by her friend, the talented British couture designer Nicholas Oakwell. I love the delicate beading in the leaf design, and the elegant cut of the dress – stunning! Katherine’s makeup was by Debbie Stone and hair by Sheena’s Wedding Hairstyles. The amazing flowers were by Wildbunch Flowers – I always adore her beautiful blooms, they are just like paintings.  After the ceremony, guests mingled in the garden at the front of the house at the relaxed reception, interspersed with speeches (both touching and hilarious) from the stairs. Then it was time to move down to the Wainhouse for the feasting and fun. A Black Cab Photobooth was greeted with much delight! It was such a pleasant evening that guests stayed outside sitting around the fire, so the versatile Super Tenants band moved outside to the firepit with them and put on an impromptu outdoor acoustic set with singing around the campfire! The party ended with sparklers – what an incredible wedding day! Huge congratulations to Katherine & Ian – thank you so much for having me there, it was an absolute honour. Here are a few favourites to tell the story of their day… x

Here’s what they said when I sent them their photographs:

“Hello from Lake Como! We have WiFi here so have been able to look through the photos and they are absolutely FANTASTIC!!! Thank you for capturing every part of the ‎best day of our lives so beautifully, we couldn’t be happier and can’t wait to share them with our friends and family. Thanks again Gemma, you have a wonderful talent x”
