Hundred House Hotel Wedding – James & Jules
Hundred House Hotel is a beautifully restored 17th Century Tithe Barn based in Shropshire and it looks like such a beautiful place for a wedding! This happy couple are called James & Jules and they got married at the local church St. Mary’s in Sutton Maddock and then they went on to the Hundred House Hotel afterward to celebrate.
The Hundred House Hotel was taken over by its current owners back in 1985 after being closed for two years - back then it looked in a bit of a sorry state but now it's shiny red doors and greenery climbing up the walls make it look like something out of a fairytale. The building has old quarry tiled floors, exposed brickwork, beamed ceilings and oak panelling - a grand place for a wedding.
The in-house team did a fantastic job of dressing the venue and there were personal touches on each table as the wedding stationery was actually done by the bride, who is a graphic designer – Call Me Jules. Tables were given the names of her favourite fonts and she designed lots of details which you'll see throughout these photographs, such as the invitations, table plan, etc. Super talented if you ask us!
Entertainment was provided for children and adults in the form of garden games - Jenga and skittles! As well as there being a cartoonist who drew pictures of various wedding guests.
We did have a bit of a giggle at the comment from the photographer regarding the last photograph; Gareth said, "I was completely terrified walking backward taking pictures at the end of the night with loads of drunk people laughing and wielding sparklers!!" but we think he did a great job and the happy couple look like they had a fantastic day surrounded by people they love.
