The wedding party was very much a family affair. With Tracy, sister of the bride and maid of honour. Niece Ella as a beautiful bridesmaid. And Steven’s nieces as sweet flower girls Amelia, Sophie and Hannah. The best man role was taken by Steven’s brother Jamie.
A bright sun was shining all day for Helen and Steven’s beautiful wedding at the Quy Mill Hotel and Spa in Cambridge. Once a historic watermill, it is a secluded haven with beautifully manicured gardens and riverside grounds that provided me with the perfect backdrop to take some great shots. The luxurious interiors and beautiful grounds always make Quy Mill Wedding photography a pleasure to shoot.
Helen looked effortlessly chic and elegant in her beautiful dress, with hair done by Sonia of Sonia’s salon in Haverhill and makeup by Claire and Danielle of Elite Beauty in Sawston (both of whom are friends of the bride so were well briefed in advance!)
The ceremony took place in the stunning Waterwheel Room, and flowers were provided by Heidi Appleyard in Swavesey. The Quy Mills’ wedding coordinator was on hand all day to ensure everything ran smoothly.
After the beautiful ceremony Helen, Steven and their guests enjoyed a sumptuous three-course wedding breakfast. During the meal, a magician entertained the guests at their tables with amazing magic tricks.
Speeches were all well received, particularly the best man speech from Jamie who ended his speech by placing Steven’s hand on top of Helens and stating ‘remember this moment it will be the last time you have the upper hand’ which ended the speeches brilliantly as it left all the guests in fits of laughter.
The first dance was a song from the film Dirty Dancing (a favourite of Helen’s) followed by a more upbeat song that had Helen and Steven’s guests quickly up onto the dancefloor where many of them stayed for the rest of the evening.
A sun-soaked friendly wedding with lots of love and laughter making an enjoyable day’s work for a Quy Mill Wedding Photographer. Congratulations to Helen and Steven for getting married and creating such a memorable day for yourselves, your family and your friends to remember.
