Natalie & Dan's big wedding adventure at Swynford Manor

December 2017

Our last wedding adventure of 2017 at the beautiful Swynford Manor, Newmarket with Natalie & Dan. It’s been raining for the last few hours, but is due to brighten up just in time for the ceremony. We do love a winter wedding, and what better time to get married than over Christmas, when a venue is decorated and every one is full of festive spirit. 

Situated within easy reach of the city of Cambridge and the market town of Newmarket, Swynford Manor is a classic country house wedding venue that dates back to the early 18th century. Once the home of Lord Byron’s half-sister, Augusta Leigh, the house has a rich history and a very distinctive style.

It's going to be a great day and a perfect end to a perfect year.

Ely Cathedral wedding

November 2017

The big day for Christina & Marvin has finally arrived, another wedding adventure for us at Ely Cathedral​ and The Old Hall Ely​. It's going to be an epic day and one we will be pushed to the limit with the low winter light, but one we are so excited about.

The Old Hall Ely in Cambridgeshire is renowned for its welcoming atmosphere and is run entirely by the Morbey family, who have many years experience in hosting weddings. We pride ourselves from being the opposite end of the spectrum from a hotel, to be totally exclusive, creative, flexible and personal.

You and your guests will be able to enjoy the exclusive use of our beautiful house and grounds and is one mile from Ely railway station which has excellent links to London and the rest of East Anglia.

The Old Hall Ely is now open for weddings all year round. For further information about our weddings and to view The Old Hall Ely, please call the wedding events manager on 01353 663 275.

Maria & Souel's big day at The Old Hall, Ely

October 2017

We are all set for tomorrow's big wedding adventure at The Old Hall, Ely with Maria and Souel. We met the couple a few months ago for their pre wedding shoot at our local nature reserve and after that we were in no doubt that their wedding images will be stunning.

The Old Hall Ely is one of our favouritre venues to shoot at and as a recommneded supplier we find that we are there for about twelve weddings a year. It's great going back to the same venue so often as we feel a part of the venues wedding team, which at The Old Hall is more like a big family, BUT we don't want to get in to the situation of taking the same shots week in week out and so re try to re-create ourselves and shoot something totally fresh and new for every wedding.

Steph & Matt, Chippenham Park, Newmarket

September 2017

The big day has finally arrived and we are on another Chippenham Park wedding adventure with Steph and Matt. Chippenham Park is situated in the most stunning grounds just a few miles from Newmarket and is now becoming one of our favorutie wedding venues. We are shooting three weddings at Chippenham this year and this one is going to be a scorcher according to the weather men. The couple are planning an outside ceremony on the banks of the river which will be our first and very cool for photographs, before we head back to the house for the formal drinks reception and group shots.
