Cambridge Wedding at St Catharines College

I knew when we did Sian and Richard’s engagement session in Highgate that their wedding would be full of smiles and happiness.

So the story begins with Sian and her bridal party in the luxurious Hotel Du Vin. I was only here last week shooting the bridal preparations for Sarah and Richard’s wedding last week so the staff we’re greeting me like a local resident. I love this place, so many cool places to shoot details and portraits.

I then walked over to the Regent Hotel in Cambridge to get some documentary photos of Richard and his ushers getting ready. He was remarkable calm and buzzing with excitement. I’d be nervous as hell on my wedding day!

Once both bride and groom were polished and pimped we went to St Catharines College in Cambridge for the wedding ceremony. Sian was pretty nervous and had a little wobble before confidently walking into the chapel.

After the ceremony we had literally 10 minutes before the heavens opened, so with military precision we banged through 20 group shots and ran for cover for cocktail hour in the SCR room.

A very cool old routemaster bus then took us from St Catharines College to the picturesque inn, The Three Horseshoes in Madingley. The food was fantastic as were the attentive staff. Great music in the evening finished off an amazing wedding in Cambridge.
