Being a photographer based in Cambridge I get to photograph in some amazing venues. The Cambridge Colleges are part of my staple diet of wedding venues, local hotels and country houses as well as a fair number of weddings receptions held in marquees. However, Victoria and David`s wedding was the first one I have ever photographed where the reception was held in a tipi!
The tipi was set in a large field with a number of large farm machines in the background giving the scene a vaguely country fair/festival type of feel that was absolutely amazing! One of the highlights for me was the open fire in the tipi and the lovely smell of wood smoke permeating the site. Being an October wedding it started to get a bit cool in the evening and it was extremely cosy being zipped into the tipi with around 100 wedding guests with the open fire burning!
Other highlights included two classic cars ( a morris minor similar to mine but with less rust!) and a fly-by by a Spitfire. The ceremony itself was held in Harlton church, one of my favourite local churches. Coupled with Victoria and David`s incredibly laid back approach the day had a wonderful and unique atmosphere, there really was a sense of Victoria and David having created a day that was very personal and individual to them in every detail.
I have included some of my favourites from the day below.
