Neesha and Chris – Thornton Manor Wedding

Earlier in the year, we had visited Thornton Manor and were lucky enough to be shown around by a member of staff. We got to see all the function rooms as you would expect, but also the corridors that would have been used discretely by servants on their way to and from the kitchens. It had a touch of Downton Abbey about it!

It whet out appetite, and we were very excited about returning to photography the wedding of Neesha to Chris. Thornton Manor weddings make great use of the venue, especially when there is a Hindu ceremony and a civil ceremony!

Neesha and Chris opted to hold both a Hindu ceremony and a civil wedding at Thornton Manor.  This meant Neesha had two wedding dresses, one for each. We love them both, and were surprised at the weight of the material in her traditional Indian dress.

Meanwhile, downstairs in Thornton Manor, guests had started to gather, and Chris arrived at the Gatehouse with his Groomsmen.

Chris and the guys were in good time, but waited at the Gatehouse until it was time for Chris to receive a traditional welcome from Neesha’s family

The welcome is joyous and accompanied by enthusiastic drumming.

After the welcome, it’s game on and Neesha’s sister and bridesmaid Priya rounded up Chris’s family and guests to follow the drummers into the ceremony.

Neesha was keen to have a few photographs taken before she changed into her dress for the civil wedding ceremony. As the Hindu ceremony had overrun a little, we had to work fast.  There were just seven minutes for photos and the change of clothes!

Thornton Manor is a grand setting for a wedding.

After dinner, there is just a short time to grab some photographs in the gardens before dark.

We’re not outside for long. Darkness falls and it is cold!  After a few more photos indoors we set up for the first dance.
