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.
When deciding a location for their pre wedding shoot, Chris felt a trip down memory lane to Cambridge and his uni days was a natural choice. As well as heading back to Chris’ old haunt Emmanuel College for a stroll around the gardens, Claire and Chris decided punting would be fun and we didn’t disagree. We love a Cambridge punting pre wedding shoot, which works well because there are two of us; Lina beds down in the end of the punt, and Tom races between the bridges! We’re excited for their wedding tomorrow, not only because we are sure it’s going to be lots of fun but it will also be our first at the gorgeous Brocket Hall, Hertfordshire wedding venue and stunning Golf course. Here’s a taste of a sunny afternoon…
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…
