I’m just going to start off by saying that Katie and Nathan are two of the nicest people I’ve ever met. It’s rare to find a couple who are so friendly and easy-going. And while it’s not necessary, I’m always super grateful to couples who make my job easier by being totally up for wandering around a big estate at night-time in the name of getting photos!
So Katie and Nathan found me because I photographed Katie’s brother’s wedding (and he in turn found me through Phil and Holly). James and Gemma married on a brilliantly sunny day, and so did Katie and Nathan, so clearly good weather runs in the family! The good weather was a big contrast with the skiing theme of the dinner. Skiing was just one of the great personal touches Katie and Nathan added to their wedding, alongside a beautiful cheese platter from Katie’s workplace and the bridesmaids’ dresses, which Katie made by hand (I can’t even begin to imagine how much time that must have taken her!).
Added to the lovely little touches was the backdrop of the Old Hall in Ely. The Old Hall is a gorgeous Jacobean Manor House that was recently converted into a luxury B&B and wedding venue. It’s such a gift to a photographer, with beautiful, old, characterful rooms and not one but three huge lakes in the grounds. I’m back there later in the year and can’t wait.
Right, now I’ve rhapsodised about the couple and the venue, I’ll leave you to take a look through the photos. Thanks so much for having me along guys!
