I’m going to keep this introduction brief, not because there isn’t tonnes to say about Flo and Jason and their fun-packed wedding in Magdalene College, but because there are so many photos in this blog post and I don’t want to make it too much longer!
Flo and Jason met at Cambridge University, so when they were planning their wedding they knew they had to hold it in one of the colleges. The question was, which one? They ended up going for Magdalen simply because it’s such a beautiful setting. The old stone work and picture perfect quads provide the perfect background for a summer wedding. Even though Flo and Jason technically got married in Spring, they were incredibly lucky to have plenty of sun and warmth. In what has to be the ultimate ‘blessing of the gods’, the sun shone out from behind clouds at the exact moment they shared their first kiss.
This was one of those weddings where the bridal party really ‘brought it’. I was greeted as a long lost friend from the moment I arrived, and the bridesmaids and groomsmen, along with Flo and Jason, encouraged a relaxed, fun vibe throughout the day. We had croquet, typical groomsmen/groom japes and a brilliantly hectic preparation. One bridesmaid had flown in from the USA (this was a truly international affair!) with nothing but the clothes on her back, so there was a mad scramble to find her shoes and jewellery, while the bride sent her lone ‘bridesman’ out into central Cambridge to find her a necklace.
I can see that I’m at risk of making this introduction way longer than I promised, so I’ll wrap up shortly. There’s just so much I could say about this wonderful day, from the cute book rabbit-obsessed Flo got for her husband-to-be, to the dramatic photos we sneaked out to get before the sun went down, to that gorgeous cake (all hail Fitzbillies!) and stunning dress (from Pronovias).
I’ll leave you to take a look through the photos now. Flo and Jason – here’s to all the happiness and fun of your wedding day following you through life.
