‘Thank you for sending this across, the photos are fantastic, we are so happy with them!! It was great to have you there on the day and after tonight’s government announcement we feel even luckier now!’ – Charlie
I’ve shot many a wedding at Cain Manor, and I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve heard it described as a ‘chocolate box’ location. So when the limit of wedding guests was limited by the government to just fifteen (including the couple!), I couldn’t think of many venues better suited to an intimate autumnal wedding.
Victoria prepared at Cain Manor from 11am onwards, whilst Charlie arrived a short while later having got ready for the big day at a nearby hotel. As I’ve become pleasantly accustomed to (given the amount of micro-weddings I’ve shot and am likely to shoot in the near future!) , the day started and continued at a calm and relaxed pace. It may have been a grey and mildly grizzly day outside, but the fires were burning and it was a day to celebrate amongst the closest of friends and family.
When everyone was ready Victoria and her father headed downstairs for the moment that matters most. It was of course an emotional ceremony, and once vows had been exchanged and rings were on fingers, the confetti-dash awaited!
After a few canapes and a glass or two of bubbly, the couple and I headed outside to brave the lightest of drizzle and the sudden gusts of wind for a few intimate shots. Those autumnal colours do it for me every time, it’s such a perfect backdrop! Once Victoria and Charlie had got back inside and settled for a bit, along came the classic Bentley to whisk the couple off for an intimate dinner at another location, and they were of course joined by their wedding guests.
What a fantastic day we all, and thank you so much for having me along to photograph it all. Congratulations Victoria and Charlie!
