KEELY & STEF – CHIDDINGSTONE CHURCH & THE PLOUGH, LEIGH
Keely and Stef were married at Chiddingstone Church and held their reception at The Plough at Leigh…
It was last year when I first met Keely and Stef to talk about their wedding plans and we got together again a few months ago to have a look at the church and the Plough. They both wanted their photos to be natural and in the moment which is what I love to do.
On the day, everyone met at the tea rooms opposite the church – the nearby pub had recently closed and luckily the tea rooms have a license so those that wanted could have a drink beforehand. Keely arrived in a beautiful Austin Healey which kept going for all the important bits…Stef drove them from the church to the reception venue (having first removed his shoes as the pedals are so close together). The only snag came later when it wouldn’t start but it had done its job.
The Plough at Leigh is not far and made for a great reception with a barn for the wedding breakfast and evening celebration. There’s a mezzanine overlooking the main space and just before the speeches I was spotted by Stef! The weather was perfect so everyone was free to wander in the garden after the meal and before the evening got going.
The evening was lots of fun with guests packing the dance floor after the first dance and the live band keeping things moving. It was huge pleasure to be part of Keely and Stef’s day.
