Kimbolton Castle Wedding Photography

What a joy it was to photograph Kat and Tom's wonderful Kimbolton Castle wedding. It was a gorgeous spring day and the castle and grounds were as simply perfect setting. As is the case with most of my wedding days, I met up with Kat and her bridesmaids at her parents house.  The girls were very relaxed and were clearly very exited about the day that lay ahead. All too soon it was time to depart for Kimbolton Castle for the wedding ceremony. 

Kimbolton Castle has a long history. It was the final home of King Henry VIII's wife Catherine of Aragon. Kimbolton Castle is reported to be haunted by Catherine of Aragon who died there in 1536 after several years of imprisonment. Originally a medieval castle but converted into a stately palace, it was the family seat of the Dukes of Manchester from 1615 until 1950. It now houses the prestigious Kimbolton School.

Kat and Tom were married in the stunning State Room which was flooded with gorgeous spring sunshine and then all the wedding party were able to enjoy the courtyard and grounds for bubbles, nibbles and confetti. 

As a documentary wedding photographer Kat and Tom were keen to make sure that they could enjoy the day to the full without much in the way of formal photographs - as you will see from the images below both the happy couple and their guests had a wonderful time.

I am lucky enough to be a recommended wedding photographer at this stunning venue nestled amongst ancient woodland in the beautiful Cambridgeshire countryside.

Longstowe Hall is a gem of a wedding venue. Exclusive and private it's a wonderful location for couples looking for a venue with stunning gardens, the opportunity have both indoor wedding ceremonies in the breathtaking ballroom with stunning oak fireplace and decadent plasterwork or be at one with nature in the tranquil lakeside setting of the pavilion island.

As a Cambridgeshire wedding photographer I love to photograph weddings at Longstowe Hall. The spectacular double flower borders cascading down to the lake are the perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs.

The Woburn Sculpture Gallery was a riot of colour and fun for Jasmin and Joshua's Hindu/English fusion wedding earlier this year. The bride and groom looked stunning in their wedding outfits. The Mandap was bedecked with beautiful floral designs and it looked stunning positioned in front of the temple in the Sculpture Gallery. The Hindu ceremony was abridged in order that the couple could have an English civil ceremony on the same day and this also took place in the Sculpture Gallery. Fortunately the weather was improving for us and the happy couple could enjoy some time in the grounds with their family and friends ahead of the wedding breakfast. It was a wonderful day and you will see from the images in the slideshow how in love the couple were and how thrilled their family and friends were to be sharing the occasion with them.

I hope you enjoy the slideshow and if you would like to see more of my Woburn Sculpture Gallery weddings then please click this link.
