The Carriage Rooms at Montalto Estate: Angela & Stephen
When Angela & Stephen first said they had chose The Carriage Rooms at Montalto Estate for their wedding I counldn’t wait. It’s such a stunning venue and with my last wedding their in the depths of winter I was excited to experience it in the summer – after all it was July!
The morning was pretty relaxed for the most part – well apart from a little moment in the guys house – but that was quickly sorted! Meanwhile over at the girls house I was being well looked after by Sam (Father of the Bride) whilst the girls were with the amazing Harmony Hair and Deborah Harper Beauty & Make-up in Helens Bay.
It was great to have some creative input into displaying the wedding dress, shoes & flowers…most fathers take themselves off to a quiet room with the paper!
On arrival at The Carriage Rooms, we were greeting with rain…persistent rain that stayed until the evening but that wasn’t going to dampen Angela & Stephen’s spirits.
Such a happy couple – they took it all in their stride. And all we needed to venture outside was an umbrella, a lakeside gazebo, and a stunning greenhouse! The Carriage Rooms took care of that.
The reception room is such a beautiful setting for speeches – the natural light through the large windows made for some stunning photographs of Angela, Stephen & their guests. The wedding cake (made by Berina) stood out beautifully too!
Many thanks to Catherine Falls for being the 2nd photographer – it’s always great having a second set of eyes…a very creative set too!
