Manor by the Lake is such a gorgeous venue set in beautiful grounds in Cheltenham. Mark and Melanie decided the Manor gardens was the perfect place for them to say "I Do" and the wedding took place August 27th 2017.
We arrived at Manor by the Lake for bridal preparations, Melanie and the bridesmaids were all relaxed and enjoying the calmness while getting ready for the day ahead. The Bride and each bridesmaid had their hair and make-up beautifully styled before slipping in to their gorgeous dresses. Once Melanie was ready her Dad came to greet her, and after a kiss and cuddle, they were ready to walk down the aisle.
The weather was on Mark and Melanie's side (it was very very hot!) so the ceremony took place outside in the gardens at Manor by the Lake which is exactly what they wanted. The guests were greeted by Mark and his bestmen as they arrived, they soon were seated and awaiting the arrival of the bride. Melanie made her way down the aisle with her dad by her side where Mark was waiting with a huge smile upon his face. The ceremony was lovely and after the newlyweds signed the important documents, the bride, groom and guests enjoyed a refreshing glass of pimms in the gardens.
After a lovely afternoon of lots of chatter in the sunshine it was time for the newlyweds and their guests to be seated for their 3 course meal and of course the speeches. Father of the bride, the groom and both bestman each said a speech. All the speeches had a great mix of laughter and emotion, meaning lots of laugh out loud moments and a few tears.
The evening celebrations started with a bouquet throw and soon after the cake was cut and Melanie and Mark took to the dance floor for their first dance.
A huge congratulations to Mark and Melanie aka Mr & Mrs Payne! We wish you all the love and happiness for the future ♥
