Swynford Manor Wedding
The beautiful winter Swynford Manor Wedding of Angela and Jamie, set in the stunning surroundings of the Swynford Manor Wedding Venue in the Cambridgeshire countryside near Newmarket.
My normal course of action is to meet with clients a couple times in the build-up to a wedding, once during the initial consultation and usually a couple weeks ahead of the big day. In relative terms, this was a late booking and we didn’t really have the time to get a meeting in place. I’d only spoken with Angela and Jamie over the phone on a couple occasions but instantly knew they had it all covered.
A black tie and ball gown wedding with Basil cocktails, fighting gladiator pugil sticks and one hell of a dancefloor, how could this wedding not be fun?
Swynford Manor Wedding
Boasting a heady combination of romance and glamour, Swynford Manor is a delightfully different, exclusive use wedding venue in Cambridgeshire.
Situated within easy reach of the city of Cambridge and the market town of Newmarket, this classic country house wedding venue dates back to the early 18th century. Once the home of Lord Byron’s half-sister, Augusta Leigh, the house has a rich history and a very distinctive style.
We started the glorious November day with the ever enjoyable bridal and groom preparation. It’s always an advantage when the couple are getting ready in the same venue as I love being able to quickly move from Bride to Groom to see how their mornings are unfolding. I must thank the videographer for the day, David at Rideout Films, who had recommended me to Angela and James. His work is truly stunning and I had a great time working alongside him again.
A beautiful ceremony followed in the Swynford Manor Study before the guests moved into the breathtaking Garden Room for the wedding breakfast and even festivities.
We also managed to fit in a short outdoor session with the couple and the images are certainly some of my favourite of the year. Thanks once again to David (Rideout) for standing in the tree and shaking the leaves off, greatly appreciated.
I wish Angela and James all the best in the future, they are a great couple who deserve nothing but the best in their future together.
Here’s the story of their day…
