Cambridge Orchard Wedding
The stunningly brilliant Cambridge orchard wedding of Fiona & Oliver in July 2018 at Turnpike Orchard in Barton, Cambridgeshire.
This was my first ever Cambridge orchard wedding and how enjoyable it was. The Cambridge orchard wedding venue at Turnpike Orchard in Barton, Cambridge really is a hidden gem in the rural Cambridgeshire countryside. This family-owned, private venue is so exclusive that this is only the 3rd wedding they’ve ever hosted!
Fiona and Oliver decided upon using the orchard venue as soon as they saw what site has to offer. Having lived locally they knew exactly what the area brought and used this local knowledge to ensure their dream wedding was made into a reality.
Their joint passion for travel and Fiona’s lifelong dance background was at the heart of the wedding day, topped off with an energetic and captivating performance from party band Groovetube later in the evening. Preceding this was a live performance by the incredibly talented Cambridge University Ceilidh Band
The Ceilidh is a traditional Scottish or Irish social gathering. In its most basic form, it simply means a social visit. In contemporary usage, it usually involves playing Gaelic folk music and dancing, either at a house party or a larger concert at a social hall or other community gathering place.
It was very gratifying to have been given the opportunity to document a wedding as special as this. From the moment I received the enquiry, I found Fiona and Oliver’s plans both intriguing and exciting, and it was great to see how precisely they kept to their vision. They really pulled it off and I’m delighted to be able to share a selection of their images here.
I wish this joyful couple, Fiona & Oliver, all the best in the future.
Here’s the story of their day….
