30 Sep Wedding at Whittlebury Park – Brenda & Mark.
Brenda & Mark are a lovely couple and we were delighted to be chosen to cover their wedding at Whittlebury Park as it had the extra special element because they were celebrating a very long and successful relationship that had already lasted over 20 years plus they have a lovely grown up son Jamie, so it felt extra special to be there to witness them finally tying the knot! This was our 2nd wedding at Whittlebury Park and we will return at the end of October to close our season with Sam and Alex. Earlier this year we had got together in Woburn for a pre-wedding session which paid dividends on the wedding day as Brenda was not keen to be photographed and was much more relaxed on her wedding day as a result of taking the time to have the pre-wedding session.
Brenda and her bridesmaids got ready at the Orangery above the ceremony room. The bridesmaids had created a lovely photo book with images from the hen weekend in Scotland and hand written notes telling Brenda what she meant to each of them. It was lovely to see something so personal which clearly touched Brenda and it was a lovely start to her final hours as a single gal! Mark got ready at home and had treated himself to some amazing handmade shoes which were very special and I think may make it onto Don’s xmas list.( good luck with that !) Brenda’s dress was pure glamour & the satin was stunning and a perfect fit and it is one of our favourite gowns of the season.
The orangery at Whittlebury Park is a lovely space to get married in, with beautiful light and a balcony which gives a added angle from which to capture the day. The wedding co-ordinator Lincoln doubles us as an amazing pianist & created a fabulous atmosphere before Brenda and the girls came down to start the ceremony. After the ceremony, the weather held out and the guests were able to spill out onto the lawns whilst we went, via golf cart, to the lake for a quick portrait session before the wedding breakfast. We were invited to sit with the guests for the meal ( always a special treat) and the speeches.
Brenda & Mark, it was a pleasure to be part of your day, and we were thrilled to be able to create a collection of images that you love particularly knowing how much you enjoy having your picture taken!!!!! hahaha.
