Photographing at one of Cambridge Universities many colleges is always a pleasure, even if sometimes a little challenging due to the light, Westminster College however, is nice and light, with large halls, so makes my job easy.
Jo and Rob had come down from Scotland to marry in the college where Jo has studied. This is often the case with weddings in Cambridge Colleges, couples come back from all around the world, as this is one of the benefits after your college years are gone. In fact, Jo had an even longer history with Westminster College, and this was proven by the fact that there was a large picture hanging on the wall in the library of her Grandfather, a fellow of the college many years ago.
Jo and her two bridesmaids arrived in a beautiful classic car from Cambridge Wedding Cars, whilst Alan waited excitedly in the Hall with his best man and life long friend.
The service was taken by another of Jo and Alan’s friends, which is always nice, as it is very personal, with some touching stories about the couple.
After an hour or so outside in the sun, a few photos, and some light nibbles, everybody made their way into the dinning hall and sat down for the wedding breakfast, and the speeches. I must say, I found Alan a very inspiring man, he had some incredible achievements, both academically and physically, and had an amazing positive attitude, and this was only backed up by his best man during his great speech.
Another short break, then back into the main for the Ceilidh.
Congratulations Alan and Jo, nice to have been part of your special day.
