Steph and Quentin’s Wedding at Milton Abbey School

We first met Steph five years ago when we photographed her sister Natalie’s wedding to Justin in Bournemouth. Since then, Natalie and Justin are now parents to two little girls and Steph and Quentin have had their own wedding to plan.

It was lovely to be asked to join their family again for Steph and Quentin’s wedding at Milton Abbey School in Blandford Forum, Dorset.

The entire day was spent between the school and the Abbey and guests travelled from far and wide to celebrate their day with them. Much of Quentin’s family travelled from South Africa which gave inspiration for African wildlife table themes and Biltong appetisers.

The big Milton Abbas street fair was taking place on the same day as the wedding; which meant a little bit of extra thought had to be put into the morning travel.

Steph and Quentin’s Wedding Prep Shoot at Milton Abbey School

We met up with Steph and Quentin this weekend to have a nose around their wedding venue – Milton Abbey School in Blandford Forum. This is such a unique location with wonderful, vast surroundings and we’re looking forward to seeing this place in all its glory.
