A peek at the weddings we have been shooting in September – from a serene woodland wedding to a glamorous country retreat. Also, Lina escaped to Italy for some family time, and we captured a very special one year old’s birthday!
We’ve shot some fun punting pre wedding shoots in the past, but Ruth and Danny’s had a twist, this time our very own Tom was the initial chauffeur. We tried something different, he punted so that we could give Ruth and Danny a go at ‘driving’, and what a hilarious decision that was! As well as the happy couple cuddling up in the punt, we saw them both try their hand at punting for the first time, with varying results, as we think the punt Danny hit would agree! No one ended up with damp feet though, so we were able to have a short stroll around Senate Passage, a beautiful part of the city, where they continued to make each other giggle, lovely stuff.
Last weekend saw a double bill of beautiful venues, with Ros and Robin marrying in the splendour of the chapel at Jesus College Cambridge, before going on to one of our favourite barn venues, Childerley.
We love this gorgeous moment under the cloisters at Jesus….

We had a fantastic day yesterday with Kim and Nick. These rock music lovers and fans of all things magical stayed true to themselves and had a wonderfully unique Alice in Wonderland themed wedding at the newly refurbished Slepe Hall Hotel with a touch of gothic red and black. Before the ceremony, they chose to have a ‘first look’ away from their guests on the bridge in St Ives, and they had also booked the beautiful little chapel on the bridge. Later on they were especially considerate to their guests’ enjoyment, with the evening reception being a silent disco, which worked brilliantly! They also had an ice cream factory, photo booth and amazingly, a ball pit! We couldn’t decide on just one taster of this fantastic wedding, so you get two!

We’ve been looking forward to Kim & Nick’s wedding for ages, ever since they told us they wanted to do things differently, choosing an alternative Alice in Wonderland theme for their wedding! Obviously this really excited us, but when we discovered we were booked for their original planned wedding date they actually moved it to suit our availability, so how can we not automatically love them!
For their Cambridge pre wedding shoot we headed to Milton Country Park, and Kim & Nick brought props that will be part of the wedding! We had a lot of fun with them, capturing their love as well as their personalities – we hope! We can’t wait to celebrate with these guys tomorrow, they don’t take themselves too seriously so we know the day will be fun. We’re particularly looking forward to hearing some rock and metal at a wedding 😉 which will also see us shooting our first ‘first look‘ – which having got to know them we know is right for these two. In the meantime, here’s some of their gorgeously sunny and quirky pre wedding shoot.

We had a super day yesterday with Claire and Paul, back at The Secret Garden Wedding Marquee at Burwash Manor, Cambridgeshire. After a few rainy days the sun shone beautifully, showing off the stunningly Spring-like celebration that was the theme of this wedding. Bright yellow flowers were everywhere, so you couldn’t fail to be brightened by your surroundings. Team this with a bbq and some cold beers for the wedding breakfast (genius) and it was a perfect Spring day!

After a few showery days, we were so happy for Lisa and Steve that the sunshine came back out for their wedding at the Cambridge Menzies Hotel. A super day filled with love and laughter, and great food and service from the team at the hotel, here they are enjoying some sunshine amongst the blossom of the golf course – lovely!

Wilma & Gilbert brighten up our Wednesday with a truly international wedding at Girton College for which all the guests had to fly in for! With various elements such as a chapel wedding, a tea ceremony and an abundance of time for photographs, we were spoilt for choice when choosing a taster. However this last shot of the night stands out as an intimate moment at the end of a packed but truly wonderful day…

Mother nature was technically not kind during Kim and Steve’s rainy Cambridge pre wedding shoot, however as we always say, rain does not mean a ruined shoot! We had lots of laughs with them in the drizzle, and to us arty folk, a wet pavement at dusk is a thing of beauty – see for yourself…

We spent a lovely afternoon in Cambridge with Claire and Chris today, ahead of their wedding at Brocket Hall
Excited at the gorgeous sunshine, we started with a relaxed stroll around Emmanuel College, where Chris studied, before moving down to the Mill Pond and climbing aboard a chauffeured Scudamores Punt!
Lina was up front, whilst Tom got his running shoes on, following the punt along the length of the river, intercepting from various bridges on the way, making sure we had lots of angles covered, the 8kgs of camera equipment in the backpack testing his fitness!
Here is a little taster of a sunny afternoon…
