Nestling at the foot of Boxhill parts of Burford Bridge hotel date back to the 16th century.
It was here too that Lord Nelson spent secret hours with his love Emma Hamilton, before going to vanquish Napoleon’s fleet at the Battle of Trafalgar, during which Admiral Nelson met his untimely death.
The 16th century Medieval Tithe Barn with beams allegedly from ships of the Spanish Armada was re-erected adjoining the hotel in 1934. In the same year that the Burford Bridge acquired the Tithe Barn the outdoor swimming pool was opened. The outdoor swimming pool has a very Art Deco feel to it and we certainly made good use of the 1950’s style changing rooms.
Nicki & Dominic’s wedding
Nicki had decided to spend her pre wedding night at Burfurd Bridge so we made our way to her suite where the girls were in full flow with hairspray, nail painting and blow drying everywhere.
Nicki’s little daughter and flower girl Olivia was really getting into the spirit of the day and she certainly looked cute! After covering all the “Prep” shots I made my way to find Dominic and the groomsmen arriving at the hotel and after a few shots we made our way into Tithe Barn. The barn with its old rustic timbers looked truly stunning as did Nicki as she made her way down the aisle. A fabulous harpist played during the ceremony which created a lovely atmosphere.
Following the ceremony everyone adjourned to the gardens to have a glass or two of Fizz and we were able to sneak off with the happy couple to take some shots around the grounds of the hotel before coming back to cover off the group shots. Following the wedding breakfast some great speeches and the first dance we said goodbye to Nicki & Dominic and thanked them for choosing us to record their lovely day.
