How exciting to invited to a ball, right? I spent all last week working out what I was going to wear and then crafting my masque. My gown was a vintage Roter Couture of London. I felt like a princess all night, It had a sheer black cape which was really unusual and so much fun!!! Victoria of Victoria Elizabeth made up my face and I was complete! I will let my masque speak for itself, let me know what you think! The actual masque was bought from Mauds attic on the Saints in Ipswich.
My friend and fellow wedding photographer Sara accompanied me. We very much enjoyed the fine champagne and outstanding food which was catered by the AMAZING Talbooth catering. They have fed me well over the wedding season, however, this meal was a little bit different as I wasn’t on official duty. Oh and the canapé’s Talbooth do are outstanding, think Oysters and roast beef on yorkshire pudding, absolutely delicious.
It was so much fun talking to people and having little idea of what they looked like, just taking in their masques. The barn in which we ate was decorated with lots of lovely touches which I believe was the work of Clare at Love Blooms.
After dinner there was a fantastic auction, the lots were impressive and I am not surprised to hear that they raised over £4,000. After the auction there was a vodka ice luge and a cocktail bar, while the famous Lee Vasey band shook the house with their rocking tunes.
Bruisyard Hall and Barn is the ideal wedding venue, I am so excited it is literally on my doorstep! I look forward to photographing some wedding there in 2013/14. I hope you enjoy the photos!
