16 Nov Bletchley Park Wedding
Bletchley Park Wedding.
Remembrance day is always special, but this year Haydn and Emma chose not only this iconic date but also the home of the WWII code breakers for their November 11th Bletchley Park Wedding. We’d not photographed a wedding in the Mansion at Bletchley Park previously and can’t wait to return, especially if the day is anything like the one we enjoyed. We had one of those rare autumn days where it was crisp and still but with the most fantastic sun and very long shadows that make days like this so special. Sally started the day with Emma, as she got ready at home. The chaps were wearing dinner jackets and lil man Conner looked very dapper doing his James Bond impressions. A vintage Citroen car called ‘Dorothy’ took Emma and her dad across Milton Keynes to start their Bletchley Park Wedding.
The service took place in a wood paneled library, which was made all the more intimate by closing the curtains. It was a little too dark for such a bright day so they were left open 12″, just enough for one or two members of the public to peer in and then jump back in embarrassment when they realised a wedding was in progress!! Oh well, there’s nowt so queer as folk!
We have to mention all the amazing work that Emma did to prepare for the wedding. Everyone was given a handmade fabric poppy or corsage to wear. The poppy’s being all the more poignant, as at each centre were British regimental buttons. Her grandfather’s poppy even had the button from his own regiment, now that is attention to detail and he was as proud as proud can be to wear that flower on Sunday.
We had a ball with Emma and Haydn all the way through their Bletchley Park wedding and wish them a long and happy marriage, plus a great time on their mini-moon!
