Tim & Jhaenelle’s Spring Surrey Wedding
Tim & Jhaenelle’s Surrey Wedding
Tim & Jhaenelle get hitched in Surrey
Tim & I actually go back over 20 years, all the way back to school. Since then we’ve popped up in each other’s lives from time to time. Last March I received a message to ask to meet with him and Jhaenelle to see if they could book me for their wedding. We spent an hour having a coffee and a chat. And by the end of it Jhaenelle had decided that she wanted to book me there and then.
The venue they had chosen was De Vere Horsley Estate, and it was absolutely glorious!
De Vere Horsley Estate
Set amidst acres of Surrey parkland, De Vere Horsley Estate has history and heritage at every turn. Designed and built in 1820 by Sir Charles Barry; the architect of the Houses of Parliament, the house was later the seat of the Lovelace family who enhanced it with the bold architectural features that can still be seen throughout. A secret chapel, beautifully tiled cloisters, and a lakeside 19th century mansion. De Vere Horsley Estate near Guildford creates an unforgettable backdrop. The Great Hall lends a dramatic atmosphere with its vaulted ceiling and oak-panelled walls. Whereas the Sopwith Suite provides an elegant space with original features and timeless décor. With beautiful grounds and the garden just starting to realise its Spring. De Vere Horsley Estate is beautiful, of that there is no doubt.
St Martin’s Church
There ceremony was held a short walk away at St Martin’s Church. A wonderful and intimate little church for a lovely ceremony. Beautiful stained glass and the light shines through in all the right places.
St Martin’s Church dates back to Norman times. The church consists of a Chancel, a Nave and Tower on the western side. A Transept was added to the north side of the Chancel in the 1980’s together with a Vestry on the east side of the building.
