Wrest Park Wedding Photographer - Alice & Ben

English Heritage describe Wrest Park as a grand French chateau but in miniature and it was a stunning backdrop for Alice and Ben's wedding on a sunny (if rather chilly) weekend in February.  As a successful architect Alice is better qualified than most to appreciate the architectural magnificence of this beautiful Grade I listed country house and despite being in the throws of a very harsh winter the weather gods looked down on us and we were able to enjoy a brisk walk for a few portraits in a small section of the 92 acres of award winning gardens. 

After a short drinks reception, guests followed Ben to the orangery located in the grounds of the house in readiness for the wedding ceremony. The orangery was flooded with late afternoon sun and it was a lovely, intimate occasion with civil wedding ceremony and a blessing from a family friend. With the sun setting, confetti was thrown on the steps of the orangery and then guests departed for the house while I spent a little time with the happy couple. Whilst the majority of my wedding photography is documentary and candid in it's approach, it is always nice to have just a short period of 'couple time' this adds to the overall coverage of the day and it also gives the newly weds a chance to take in the occasion and spend a little time together before returning to the reception. 

Ben is an avid Norwich City fan and tried desperately to incorporate the colours of his favourite team into the day. We had all thought that his mission had been unsuccessful until the cake was cut and a large extraction revealed a vibrant green and yellow sponge, much to the delight of Ben ! It was then straight on to the dance floor and the fun carried on well into the evening, a great day enjoyed by all. Please get in touch is you are looking for a Wrest Park photographer. Here is a small selection of images taken on the day, I hope you enjoy.
