Back again at the wonderful Rectory Farm, 2 miles west of Cambridge, one of my favourite venues to photograph at, which is great, as I am there very often.
I met Sarah at her house in Comberton for some preparation shots, she was very calm and surrounded by her bridesmaids, and mum and dad.
The lovely service took place at St Mary’s Church, Comberton, after which we headed over to Rectory Farm for the wedding breakfast and party. In a secluded hideaway, and surrounded by mature trees, there is a romantic, traditional double marquee, with the long window looking out onto fields and the large, pretty garden, great in the early evening for watching the sun set.
Daniel and Sarah arrived at Rectory Farm in an old Bentley, then strolled hand in hand down the walkway to the drinks reception. As a wedding photographer, there is always a good opportunity at this point to get some great natural shots, when the guests wander through the gardens and down the enchanted walkway.
Everyone took their seats in the beautifully decorated marquee for the wedding breakfast. Daniel seemed very nervous about his speech, but he had nothing to worry about, he sailed through it, making the guests laugh and cry. Well done Daniel!
As I stay until the end, the evening party is one of the best parts of the day for me, as I get some really cool, but technical shots, using flash and ambient lighting to create some funky results.
Congratulations Daniel and Sarah, it was an amazing day, I hope you enjoy Antigua and New York!
