EAST LAWN: A PICTURESQUE SETTING
At 4pm A and Z met in secret to have their first wedding portraits taken. Here they had space away from the onlookers and attendees who were gathering across the field for their ceremony. In this quiet and elegant space they were able to breathe and relish in how far they'd come before heading of to the ceremony space. While this couple opted not to do a first look, this would be an idyllic space to meet in private and share such a moment.
Bowling Green: Where Love Takes Center Stage
The ceremony took place on the lush Bowling Green, a meticulously manicured lawn framed by stately trees and historic architecture. Underneath the azure sky and a gentle breeze, the bride and groom exchanged vows in front of their closest loved ones. Among the tranquil fountains and shaded grove the moment was truly special. The verdant greenery and serene atmosphere made it a perfect spot to start for A + Z to journey together. It proved an excellent space to not only tie the knot, but to gather for a heartfelt toast and take formal group portraits.
The Rose Garden: A Floral Wonderland
Following the ceremony, the newlyweds and their guests strolled through the enchanting Rose Garden and Front of House. This meticulously landscaped haven boasts a kaleidoscope of colors, with hundreds of roses in bloom. The fragrance of the roses hung in the air as guests explored the winding paths and admired the beautiful blooms. The Rose Garden at Tudor Place added a touch of romance and timeless elegance to the day.
