Francesca and David chose St Johns the Baptist Evangelical Church in Royston for their traditional wedding service. The church is a truly impressive building of red brick Victorian gothic grandeur in the style of the decorated period, which boasts beautiful carvings of foliage stonework around the church.
St John’s opened its main entrance (something it only does for weddings) so that Francesca, David and their guests could enjoy a grand entrance up the tree-lined path and into the church. Before the ceremony, David was in good hands with best man Robert and ushers Simon and Paul.
Francesca arrived looking beautiful in a classically elegant dress by Pirouette in Exeter, which was complemented by her attentive bridesmaids Hari, Helen, Heather and Olivia’s teal blue dresses. Her hair was done by Saks in Royston and flowers provided by Mulberry Flowers.
After the beautiful ceremony, it was off to Longstowe Hall for the reception. With the newlyweds arriving in style in a vintage Maserati. On arrival, Francesca and David’s guests were served drinks in the beautiful gardens, where they could meander around the borders towards the lake and wander across the lawns to the rose garden. This gave the wedding a lovely relaxed feel after the formality of the ceremony which I know is something that Francesca and David wanted. Giving me the chance to take more great wedding photography of the happy couple and their guests.
After a sumptuous three-course wedding breakfast served by Capers Catering, it was then onto the speeches, with a particularly impressive speech given by the father of the bride! After dinner, the real celebrations started with a fantastic Ceilidh band who had everybody dancing well into the evening. A lovely sunny friendly wedding day for this pair of childhood sweethearts (they met in sixth form college) Congratulations to Francesca and David for getting married. I hope my images will enable you to relive your day again and again for many years to come.
Longstowe Hall wedding photography
Dating from the reign of Elizabeth 1, Longstowe Hall lies hidden within ancient woodland that opens out to reveal a glorious English garden. With its spectacular double borders sweeping down to the lake, I always love capturing Longstowe Hall wedding photography. It really offers the ideal setting for a truly romantic wedding in unspoilt countryside. It’s not just outside that impresses, the hall inside has an air of grandeur with original oak panelling and enormous fireplaces. The whole wedding venue, including the awesome marquee, oozes of opulence and romance. Making it one of my most preferred venues in the county!
