With so many venues available to couples looking to tie the knot, it's often a huge relief to come across somewhere like The Langton Arms in Tarrant Monkton Nr Blandford. I think for Emma & Phil, it was just the sort of place they were looking for - quaint , quiet and set in the countryside. It is a beautiful village and the gently rolling hills nearby are a fabulous backdrop to any occasion. Both the bride and groom enjoy the outdoors, the animals therein and the relaxation it affords - it stands to reason that this place was ideal for them.
Having visited Emma at her mums house in the morning of the big day, to capture the preparations, it was then onto The Langton Arms for the ceremony and celebrations. The guests relished the beautiful gardens both before and after the ceremony, whilst the staff did a great job all round.
I don't like to keep the bride and groom away from their celebrations for too long, however we did pop up to an area in which i used to live, near Tarrant Rushton Airfield. The view from up there is glorious and gave us the perfect backdrop for some photos with their classic car.
I love how down to earth they both are - no dramas, no panic - just a horizontal approach to everything... and they got it spot on! The food was a delicious carver buffet which, quite frankly, was enjoyed by every single person there - booootiful! Come the evening, the party kicked off with Paul Ballett of Muzic Mania, doing a great job of getting people up and dancing... for the whole night and beyond (so some candid footage suggests).
I wish Mr & Mrs Murray the most amazing life together and i'd like to thank their guests for being so much fun to be around!
