“Thanks so much for the link – that’s a great set of photos!” Nanette and Oli
Nanette and Oli’s Burwash manor wedding with a church ceremony in Grantchester just on the outskirts of Cambridge.
The reception was in the Secret Garden Wedding Marque which is located in the secluded old walled garden of the 16th Century moated manor house.
Burwash is the perfect country wedding venue and has the advantage of offering couples complete freedom and flexibility to have their day exactly as they want it!
The wedding ceremony itself was at the famous Grantchester church and I started the day photographing Nanette and bridesmaids getting ready at the beautiful Edwardian End House B&B in Newnham shortly after having eaten what they described as one the best breakfasts ever! It was then on to photograph the boys getting ready in Grantchester before heading off to the church and then to Burwash Manor.
I think my favourite shot of the day is above. It’s just as Nanette and Oli were announced and entered the marquee to sit down for the wedding breakfast. It’s always a bit of an awkward shot to get and I normally try to get the expressions on the bride and groom’s faces as their friends and families cheer and applaud them on their way to their seats. In this case things happened completely the other way round and as they spontaneously raised their hands in the air I was able to picture their friends and family smiling and clapping through their arms!
Earlier in the day there were several highlights for me including photographing an unbelievably calm Nanette just chilling out and reading the newspaper before getting ready for the day. Frantic speech writing from the boys both before and during the wedding and reception! A trip in a well loved family camper van and the frankly amazing job that they had done of decorating the Secret Garden Wedding Marquee.
Some more of my favourites from the day are below.
