Kate & Stuart

On a very warm and humid day, Kate and Stuart were married on 23rd July 2016.  The ceremony was held at St James Church Skillington and the reception was held in a marquee at The Buckminster Barn Buckminster.  There was a definite ‘Truckers’ theme to this wedding with the bride arriving in style in an articulated tractor unit!

The church building of St James is a very old building. Quoining has been dated to the Anglo-Saxon period. There are many features of interest to note when one visits this ancient church. In recent times, to celebrate the advent of the second millennium, ladies of the parochial group made a set of kneelers which record key items in the village’s history. The most notable of these events and an item, which is further recorded in memorial windows together with a display, came about with the death of a vicar, the Reverend Charles Hudson, in 1865.

Charles Hudson was a remarkable man. He was one of the best amateur mountain climbers of his day and in the fateful year he was a member of a party attempting to become the first to climb the famous Matterhorn. This was accomplished but on the way down some members of the team fell over a crevasse, the rope parted and four of the team including Hudson fell 4,000 feet to their deaths. This was fully reported in the Times. Both the congregation and fellow climbers then contributed stained-glass windows and also a fifth bell was added (Hudson had purchased the fourth out of his own pocket).

Buckminster Barn is set in the very heart of tranquil, unspoilt Leicestershire countryside, and nestled within Buckminster village, Buckminster Barn is the perfect venue for a wedding.

It has been sympathetically converted from original Estate buildings to combine distinctly traditional features with stylish contemporary finishing. Entirely self-contained, Buckminster Barn incorporates two function rooms, kitchen and toilet facilities, wireless internet access and on-site parking. Large double-glazed windows provide panoramic views over untouched local countryside.

The Barn is located on the Buckminster Estate, which comprises residential and commercial property portfolios, farmland, forestry enterprises and sporting activities. The Estate’s primary focus is to provide a thriving rural environment in which both to live and work.

 

Anyway, enough of the history stuff, here are just a few images taken during Kate & Stuarts special day:
