A beautiful bride who couldn’t stop laughing, a dashing groom with a wicked sense of humour, a bunch of stunning dancer bridesmaids and the kindest families you could meet…when combined with an amazing Surrey wedding venue (Cain Manor) this must be close to the perfect wedding. I loved every moment of photographing Emily and James’ beautiful Cain Manor wedding.
I normally start my wedding photography with the bride and her bridesmaids getting ready. It sometimes takes a while for everyone to get used to having a photographer around, but at this wedding everyone was so relaxed that I felt like I just fitted in straight away. Emily’s bridesmaids were her best friends from her dancing days and although it might look like she just hired beautiful glamorous girls to accompany her for the day she assures me she didn’t! Cain Manor is great for photographing a bride getting ready because the room is beautiful, with lovely windows, a surprisingly large and glam bathroom and even a perfectly placed hook for taking a photograph of the wedding dress hanging up! It also allows the bride to take a sneaky look at guests arriving which was fun.
Emily and James had a lovely outdoor ceremony – the weather once again defied the forecasts and was pretty good for spring time in England! The ceremony was lovely – the registrars couldn’t stop commenting on quite how beautiful Emily was – I think they fell a bit in love with her too! After that we whizzed through a record number of group photographs and some couple shots in the grounds in just 30 minutes. This was followed by a delicious wedding breakfast and some of the best wedding speeches I’ve heard (I commented to Emily’s father that I enjoyed some of his rude jokes, but apparently I’d just misinterpreted them 😉 ). After coffee Emily threw her bouquet to a particularly competitive bunch of girls! This was followed by a lovely first dance then a lot of very lively and fun dancing. Wow, what a day!
