0ne of my favourite weddings of 2010 – Philippa & Barney at Longstowe Hall, Cambridgeshire
Philippa & Barney live in Dubai and came home to have their wedding at a beautiful Elizabethan Country House in Cambridgeshire. Click here to see the Longstowe Hall website I have chosen a few of my absolute favourites images from the day. I remember this wedding very well because something happened that happens very rarely – I bumped into someone I knew at the wedding! A guy who I knew from University 15 or so years ago! I managed to have a chat with him toward the end of the day and we realised we were both going to another friend’s wedding this year. – Small world 🙂
Philippa wore a beautiful dress by Ian Stuart and she looked totally amazing in it – lucky for her she is beautiful, slim and tall 🙂 Barney looked very proud and not at all nervous. The ceremony was lovely and inside the stunning Longstowe Hall. It was a gorgeous room with tapestries draped on the wall – a fabulous place to be married. The ceremony room itself can only carry 40 people so after, Philippa and Barney walked outside to be greeted by more guests waiting in the sunshine! I really felt the love in the room, not only because people really love the couple, but because they had travelled half way across the world to be married. The sheer beauty and History of the Hall added to the drama of the day. The building and the grounds provided me with loads of ideas for beautiful shots and their album is packed full of stunning images!
Longstowe Hall is a private residence and the family live in the house, they are a lovely family and warmly open their grounds and home for weddings! It is such
a beautiful location with beautiful flower borders, a Rose garden and a lake – perfect backdrop for wedding photos! – It makes my job so much easier when I shoot a wedding at a lovely venue such as Longstowe Hall, also Philippa & Barney were such a lovely couple, very easy to pose and so much in Love it wasn’t hard to capture their feelings in the photos!
