We all love wedding photographs which is why finding a great photographer is a must for many couples. The right photographer will capture emotion, joy and fun on your wedding day so it is a good investment but can also be an expensive one. What can really push up the price is the need for two photographers shooting at two different locations for the pre-wedding photographs.
If your budget cannot run to a second shooter only one part of the morning is recorded. What often happens is that while a bride or groom is getting ready, their future spouse has no one taking professional photographs of them; no one to capture their pre-wedding nerves, their families looking so proud; their best man or bridesmaid straightening their tie or fluffing their dress.
Some venues have dressing rooms but rarely two. Wanting to get ready together but still keep the element of surprise as your walk down the aisle is something many couples are looking for; this is often difficult to find.
At The Pilgrims Rest we are always looking to help couples have a wonderful day and keep their costs down. So with this in mind, we have been working hard to create a second dressing room for grooms and brides; all under one roof but still quite separate. We have designed our new room to be the perfect backdrop for pre-wedding photos. Rich, cosy and quintessentially British, we absolutely love it and so do photographers.
But what to call our new dressing room? The bar and our original dressing room are named after families who once lived at The Pilgrims Rest but not this time. Instead we have called it The Fitzherbert Room for all the Mr Darcys and Bridget Joneses out there looking to tie the knot. And let’s face it, who can’t say it without thinking of that famous scene from the film and still keep a straight face?
The Pilgrims Rest is nearly 600 years old. Full of rustic charm and historic soul, this is a venue quite unlike any other. To book an appointment to meet a member of our wedding team and see what else we include please contact Amy on 07552873448 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
