After dodging a few showers we managing to spend some time outside in the gardens of Kingston Country Courtyard. From the back it has epic views of the Dorset countryside and Corfe Castle. We took advantage of the sunlight, arranged some group poses and romantic portraits whilst everyone enjoyed their wedding reception drinks.

The wedding breakfast was held in the 18th century Purbeck stone barn, lovely and atmospheric, perfect for Rebecca and Ashley’s vintage inspired wedding.

Here are some of my favourite wedding photos from the wedding reception in Kingston:

The couple had arranged for aprons to be secretly placed under one of the guests chairs on each table. They were the nominated carver for the roast.

I think all good Bestman speeches involve some sort of embarrassment for the groom. Here’s a sequence of photos were the Bestman reveals some details from the stag party. Great humour and fun for the guests.

Being a big roast dinner fan, I think carving at the table is a great idea and a fantastic fun way to get the guests involved in the wedding reception. Kingston Country Courtyard is a fabulous wedding venue in Dorset to photograph. More wedding photography from Rebecca and Ashley’s evening celebration to follow soon..
