I’ve been quiet close to home in Essex for the past few weeks, so it was nice to have a change of scenery and go to Huntingdon in Cambridgeshire, as the Hinchingbrooke House wedding photographer for Nick and Gemma.
Huntingdon is a beautiful town with the church – All Saints, being right on the Great Ouse river. A truely spectacular spot made even more inviting with the sun shining. When I arrived at the church, Nick was there, along withy the ushers, greeting guests as they arrived. Gemma didn’t keep Nick waiting too long and arrived at the church in a stunning vintage Rolls Royce.
The minister was a very reasonable guy – even more so as like myself, he has a passion for cycling. I had a good spot in the church, reasonably well hidden but in a position where I could catch some of the great emotion and expression during the service.
After the service a red London bus took the guests to the stunning Hinchingbrooke House. A superb, grand venue steeped in history and former home of the Cromwells. A great location to be a wedding photographer.
By now the sun was beating down and it was actually quiet difficult to find an area of shade suitable for the groups. A rustic wall did the job. For me, the most important thing with groups is the quality of light on peoples faces, avoiding harsh shadows and people squinting into the light. The other images will tell the story of the day.
Hinchingbrooke House has an impressive staircase. Gemma asked for for a couple of shots using it so we tried something a little more artisitic and creative with the angle and pose.
I had a great day working with Nick and Gemma as their Hinchingbrooke House wedding photographer. A great couple to work with in stunning surroundings.
