N&G Wedding – Cambridge
Beautiful couple with beautiful families and friends at the most beautiful locations in Cambridge — one of the most rewarding weddings I have taken photographs at so far. The weather nor scenery couldn’t have been better, plus I brought an assistant to help me out. I was hired to cover the whole day, from preparations at the Bride’s house to the first dance and the party after.
The wedding ceremony was held in a historic church in the center of Cambridge. Father of the bride, being the minister, introduced me to the priest leading the sermon and I was able to work without restrictions, which is instrumental for getting a good range of angles and telling a story that is whole and complete.
Elated graduates, tourists and local folk shuffling around town all made for a perfect backdrop on the walk from the church to the reception venue, after the ceremony. Stopping several times along the way I was able to get some shots in front of the iconic Cambridge University, historic district and the parks.
Upon arrival to the reception venue I quickly took care of the group shots before the dinner was served. Wonderfully prepped room provided no obstacles for me to take excellent and natural photos of the guests and family members giving speeches and raising toasts. After the meal the celebrations moved outside into the lush garden filled with perfect light from the setting sun.
To sum it all up it was a flawless wedding day in one of UK’s most beautiful and historical cities.

Equipment I have brought with me on this shoot:
"The photos are brilliant, we have had absolutely loads of compliments on them, and we are very, very pleased with them – they really capture the day and the atmosphere which is exactly what we wanted. It was also such a pleasure to have you and Erin taking the pictures on the day – we can see now that you literally got everywhere(!) but this at no point felt intrusive at all. Your excitement and enthusiasm alongside your professionalism meant you were both an absolute pleasure to work with and have around."
