Our biggest wedding weekend of the year at The Old Hall Ely, Cambridgeshire

August 2017

So we are coming up to our busiest wedding weekend of the year, with the wedding of Rachael & Dan on Friday, Michela & Ben on Saturday, and to finish the weekend off Lucy & Xander on Sunday.

It's quite unique as all three weddings will have their receptions at the Old Hall, Ely with Friday and Sundays marriages being conducted at Burwell Church, and Saturdays a civil ceremony at the Old Hall.

The Old Hall Ely, Cambridgeshire is a privately owned country house wedding venue, located one mile from Ely in Cambridgeshire, in a beautiful countryside setting overlooking three ornamental lakes and Ely Cathedral itself.

The Old Hall is renowned for its welcoming atmosphere and is run entirely by the Morbey family, who have many years experience in hosting weddings. They pride themselves 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 the 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 is now open for weddings all year round. For further information about our weddings and to view the venue, please call them on 01353 663 275.

Double wedding weekend

July 2017

Today we are recovering from two fab weddings, and wow do we need the rest. Friday was a great day with Gemma & Jos Hengrave Hall, followed by yesterdays wedding at Hinchingbrooke House with Vicky & James. The weather was perfect for both weddings until the early evening when it decided to rain, but we are not ones to let a spot of rain soil the fun.

World Emoji Day, Westminster Bridge, London

July 2017

So as a lot of you have already guessed, Saturday's shoot was initially a secret as people dressed as the faces of emoji for a Guinness World Record attempt in celebration of World Emoji Day.

Some 531 people simutaniously dressed as the emoji characters at several major cities around the world, including the winking face, smiling face, pizza and poop emoji.

We gathered with lot's of Emoji fans near Westminster for the London part of the challenge, which came two days ahead of World Emoji Day. The successful attempt also coincided with the upcoming worldwide release of The Emoji Movie and we feel privileged to have been a part of the big event.

Suzanne & Ton's wedding selfie

July 2017

Congratulations Suzanne & Tony, a great day at Chillderley Hall near Cambridge. We had a 45 minute delay when one of the registrars got lost, but we were not going to let that spoil the couples day and stop us from having some fun. 

We harp on week in week out about the benefits of booking a professional wedding photographer with years of experience, and this issue and delay to the ceremony highlighted how important it is.

Suzanne and Tony's big day at Childerely Hall, near Cambridge has finally arrived. We have been looking forward to this festival themed wedding and will be wearing our new tweed waistcoasts to feel part of the festivities. 

The Long Barn is going to provide a fabulous set of informal wedding images and when combined with the magnificent gardens and grounds as a backdrop, we couldn't ask for more.
