Swynford Manor weddings are always fantastic occasions and Sarah and Stuart’s outdoor wedding was no exception! Swynford Manor (formerly Paddocks House) is located just outside Newmarket, Cambridgeshire. I was there last year for Gemma and John’s wedding, and Sarah had seen some of my shots which she’d fallen in love with. I met them both on a couple of occasions before the big day, the 2nd at the venue to discuss the plan for the day.
The day arrived and luckily for us all the weather was great, which meant an outdoor ceremony. It was absolutely stunning, decorated in beautiful flowers by Wild Ivy.
Sarah was getting ready at the venue in one of their stunning rooms, the bridesmaids were there and the fizz was flowing! The room had beautiful light which allowed me to get some great shots of the girls. It really does make a difference getting ready at a venue, the rooms are always more spacious and normally there’s lots of natural light, which really helps in my job!
A short trip down the stairs and outside for the ceremony where Stuart was eagerly waiting.
There is something really special about an outdoor ceremony, and it also makes my job a lot easier as I have loads of room to move around! It was great that they could use the outdoor spaces and see the venue in all its glory.
The speeches are one of my favourite parts of the day – and these were really entertaining, especially the Father of the brides speech which was very funny! I just love capturing the reactions to these, its brilliant.
An unbelievable Swynford Manor wedding with an amazing couple. Thank you both for allowing me to capture your day.
