St Bene’t’s Church in Cambridge is an iconic venue for a number of reasons – in a placed famed for its beautiful architecture and history the church is the oldest church in Cambridge, which for us Cambridge wedding photographers is always amazing to take pictures there, but there is additional significance for me as my own wedding was blessed there.
For Sarah and Richard, the venue more than lived up to its lofty reputation, providing a stunning backdrop for their special day. As with many of the great Anglican churches the stained glass and arches provide some incredible visuals that really make the moment extra special. The historical aspect was also in keeping with the vintage vehicles for the bride and groom to make their way to the ceremony.
As if this wasn’t enough the ceremony also took place at the famous King’s College, another venue that people justly associate with a kind of historical dignity that lends weight to an occasion.
However, that is not to say it was all reverence! As you’ll see from the pictures there was plenty of fun had by friends and family alike. Sarah looked incredible in her dress, Richard looked stylish and it seemed everyone had turned out for this incredible moment, all appreciating the great venue as well as the special occasion (even if there were one or two tired kids on the day, but then those pictures looked really cute as well!)
I am one of the best Cambridge wedding photographers whose work captures the joy of these momentous occasions. While it helps to have a couple of the finest backdrops in the local area the best way to make these moments truly iconic is to use the services of a professional photographer.
