Wedding photos at Longstowe
Longstowe Hall wedding photographer. When you have a planning meeting and you hear the phrase “the mariachi band will be after the dancing lobsters”, you know you are in for quite extraordinary wedding! I met Emma and Adrian for an engagement shoot in the autumn before their wedding. Their chemistry together was fantastic. Quietly intense but constantly fizzing with open energy. I loved their plans for their day. I knew this was a couple determined and organised enough to pull them off.
Helping them with their plans was the ever capable and incredibly hard working team of Louise and Natalie from Louise Perry Weddings. Can’t underestimate how much work these two put in behind the scenes to make the day run effortlessly and smoothly. And there was a fair bit to organise. Not only the big bits but all the little touches that made this day so special.
SELWYN COLLEGE WEDDING PHOTOS
The ceremony was at Selwyn College, Emma’s old college. Not only is it a stunning backdrop for a wedding but is significant for Emma. The welcome back as bride is more than just being welcomed back as an old friend, it’s almost a second home. We had to dodge the showers in and around the ceremony and thankfully managed a to get some time in the college gardens.
WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER LONGSTOWE
The weather looked ominous as we left Selwyn for the reception but the drive between the two meant the weather had time for a bit of glorious sunshine. Longstowe Hall is one of the most elegant and spectacular wedding venues. To not be able to enjoy it in the sunshine is almost criminal! Thankfully the next rain shower was pretty much perfectly timed for the end of the reception. After the meal and pretty full on emotional speeches, we managed to get some time on the long lawns in the late afternoon sunshine. Such a stunning couple, such a beautiful scene.
CAMBRIDGE MARQUEE WEDDING
Sunset was not the end of the day but merely the start of the party! Hilarious acapella song sung by Emma’s friends about Emma and Dan was not only unique but brilliantly funny. Joined by the backing of the dancing lobsters. And then the dancing started with an introduction by a mariachi band and then dance floor went into overdrive. A brief rest for an arcade of sparklers to round the evening off before heading back into the marquee for plenty more partying.
