Tetbury wedding - Kate and Ashe. Dyrham Park then Great Tythe Barn, Tetbury.
William Blathwayt, builder of Dyrham Park married Mary on the same spot in St Peters Church, Dyrham on (almost) the same date in 1686(4 days later, to be exact). This day just over 3 centuries later however, belonged to Kate Collins and Ashe Palmer. I was so excited for Kate and Ashe ; not everyone gets married and then goes straight off to live in another stately home! Kate had just got a new job working for The National Trust at Arlington Court in Devon and was moving from Dyrham Park in Gloucestershire. Who would be the Lord of the new Manor? Ashe?
This was a warm wedding with lots of laughter and fun which reflected the couple so very well.Some of the highlights: a whirlwind of Kate's deeply coloured homemade rose petals (from the garden at Dyrham), priceless expressions of surprise and joy during the best mans speeches and dancing beneath a canopy of blue stars suspended from the half-timbered roof of the Great Tythe Barn in Tetbury.
