We have some really beautiful weddings at Hestercombe - unsurprisingly I suppose, with the landscape and formal gardens acting as a backdrop - but this one was a little bit different.
Chris and Rhian were married on October 11th 2013 in the Temple.
For those who don't know, the Temple is situated at the top of the landscape gardens. It has incredible views out over the whole valley, perfectly framed by trees with the Pear Pond spreading out below. It is a short hike for visitors, let alone wedding guests to reach, but we like to think it's worth it, and Chris and Rhian certainly did. I'm sure you'll agree looking at their wonderful photos!
