Chippenham Park wedding photography

Just catching up with my blog posts with Becky and Will’s wedding at Chippenham Park from last summer …and the images just make me smile. Smile a lot! What an incredible day – what an incredible couple. You are not likely to meet two more lovely and genuine people. And, apart from a few understandably nervous moments before the ceremony, I don’t think either of them stopped smiling all day. Great friends, great family made my job all that much easier.

Chippenham Park is quite simply beautiful. A grand family home with incredible gardens that go on forever. I could have spent all day photographing there and very much look forward to going back sometime soon. We had a few anxious moments with a drop of rain as the wedding party turned up to the park but thankfully it was a very brief drop. Plenty of opportunity to get out and enjoy the gardens. We were even blessed with a bit of glorious sunshine!

[dropcap]T[/dropcap]he last wedding of the year for me was a flying visit to Cambridge and the glorious church of Our Lady of English Martyrs for Catherine and David’s blessing. When I turned up to the church, my brain kicked into full technical mode, working out the best way to photograph the church and do justice to it’s splendour as well as work out the best way to cope with the typical cold and grey day outside – winter weddings are always tricky, even the simplest things at a summer wedding can become significant challenges in the darker months. My head was in full boring techno-mode when David and Catherine turned up – normally I’m with the bride for the preparations and I get to see the gradual build up to the day. But when Catherine arrived looking absolutely stunning in her dress, my breath was taken away. No more technical brain! (And just so David doesn’t feel left out, he looked pretty suave as well!) Look with charm and grace t’boot, perfect couple for such a lovely setting. It is part of David’s family tradition to be married at this church and it’s lovely to see this tradition carried on. Father Raf officiated the service, a true gent and refreshing change to have someone point out the best opportunities for photographs rather than give you that disappointed glare and read you the riot act! It all cane together for a charming and heartfelt service. We even managed a few group shots outside with out feeling the cold! OLEM Cambridge wedding photography.

Madingley Hall wedding photography of Marielle and Philip

Chilly start for Marielle and Philip’s Madingley Hall wedding photography. And it didn’t get much warmer as the day got on! A brief burst of sunshine later in the afternoon really brought out the best in Madingley Hall, a superb Cambridgeshire wedding venue, beautiful building and stunning grounds, a fantastic backdrop for a great couple.

I know, I know …technically this image is all wrong, both Marielle and Philip have their eyes shut. But I love their expressions and it sums up the emotion of walking through a group of your family and friends all throwing confetti at you. At first you think you will be able to do it stylishly, keep your cool and keep a graceful expression on your face. Give it two or three steps and that strom of confetti makes you speed up and duck for cover, it’s a fantastic feeling! Getting to the end of it is quite an achievement. It’s one of many of my favourite images from the Madingley Hall wedding photography of Marielle and Philip. More to follow soon.
