On Friday May 31st I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Amy & Rob at Lanwades Hall near Newmarket.
But before the big day at Lanwades I had an extra treat. Amy asked me if I would meet them to take some pictures of them and a few of their closest friends and family as they enjoyed a day in Cambridge. Amy explained that they planned to go punting as part of the day and as I’m never one to miss the opportunity to nearly fall in the River Cam I couldn’t say no! It was a lovely occasion and we all had an amazing time.
Just a few hours later I joined Amy, her mum and bridesmaids Ava and Maria at Lanwades Hall for the main event. While I was with the girls my second photographer Tracey met up with Rob, the ushers and best men Mark & Pete.
The day itself was one of the most relaxed weddings you could wish for. After a lovely outdoor service on the lawn there was plenty of time for mingling and drinks, including the fabulous gin cart (grown-up candy cart?). The highlight of the day for me was seeing Amy perform a few songs with the harpist as a surprise for her new husband. I met Amy through her career as a singer and was once again reminded what an incredible singing voice she has.
Like most wedding breakfasts the meal concluded with the speeches. But no-one expected Mark & Pete to come out dressed as the main characters from Dumb & Dumber – Amy’s favourite film! It was hilarious and another highlight from an amazing day.
Wishing Amy & Rob all the best for the future as husband and wife. It was an honour to be a part of their big day. I hope you enjoy this selection of images from an amazing couple of days….
