The Old Lodge Wedding

Real weddings | Tasha and Toby at The Old Lodge, Minchinampton

My last wedding of 2018 was a wonderfully laid back wedding for Tasha and Toby set at The Old Lodge on Minchinampton Common. Not only was it a special day for Tasha and Toby, it is also my own wedding anniversary which Tasha and Toby took as a good sign (Mr G and I celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary this year!).

It was a beautiful day, with glorious sunshine and a little nip in the air. Tasha and Toby had spent the evening before their day, decorating the Old Lodge using a wonderful rich scheme of greens and purples influenced by their love of a favourite video game. Hair and make up was in full swing when I arrived, a very relaxed and calm bride enjoying the time with her bridesmaids and Mum as they helped each other get ready. Across the corridor the boys were getting ready too before heading to the bar for a few beers ;). 

The wedding was attended by so many family members who were amazingly good fun to spend time with and of course made my job so much easier. There was a wonderful mix of cheeky children who stole the show, great banter from the Groomsmen, fabulous moves on the dance floor  and the most laid back groom I have ever met. Tasha brought her own style to her outfit wearing sparkly Converse and added a splash of purple.

Tasha and Toby both have a great sense of humour and it was real pleasure to get to know them and to capture their special day.

Like many couples, Tasha and Toby had spent a lot of time preparing for their wedding day, making many of the details themselves including button holes, centre pieces for their wedding reception right to carefully selected thank you gifts. They created a wonderfully quirky wedding with so many personal touches.
