Old Hall Ely

Becky & Pete at The Old Hall

On Saturday January 2nd I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Becky & Pete at The Old Hall near Ely.

The first of nearly 50 weddings in 2016 got off to a great start straight after the Christmas break with a wedding at another of my favourite venues, The Old Hall.  Having got to know the couple and Pete’s two children at their pre-wedding shoot in Newmarket I couldn’t wait to shoot the big day itself.  On the morning of the wedding I met up with Becky at her mum’s house in Fordham where she was getting ready with her bridesmaids and flower-girls.  Considering there was lots of them to get ready it was remarkably calm and stress-free, with Becky herself seeming to take it all in her stride.  The girls were great fun and they all seemed to enjoy the excitement of the morning of the wedding.  While I was with the girls my second photographer Sian met Pete and the rest of the groomsmen at the church in the village.

It was a lovely service at a very picturesque church and I was grateful to the vicar for letting me record the ceremony from the front.  Once over it was off to The Old Hall, where there was still enough daylight to get some group photos and for the couple to join me around the grounds for pictures.  Of course this time of year daylight is fading fast so I worked extra quickly to get the shots, and to ensure the couple didn’t stay out in the cold any longer than necessary.  On to the wedding breakfast and the guests were treated to a “how-well-do you-know-Becky-and-Pete” quiz, and after the speeches Pete revealed the winners.  I wasn’t too surprised to see Becky’s sister won!

For me the day ended with the traditional cake-cutting and first dance.  It had been a lovely occasion and an honour to be a part of.  Thanks to Becky & Pete for choosing me to shoot their big day. Wishing them all the best for the future as husband and wife.  I hope you enjoy this small selection of pictures from the day.
