I first met Matt and Bronwen in late 2016. We had arranged to meet up and discuss their Chippenham Park wedding , which is a beautiful country house wedding venue in Cambridgeshire. Like a lot of couples they weren’t 100% confident with having their photo taken. I recommended a pre-wedding shoot and this proved to be really useful. We got some great pictures and more importantly we got to know each other. This meant that on the day everyone was feeling confident and relaxed.
Bronwen decided to get ready at the Rosewood Pavillion, another wedding venue in Chippenham. I actually live in the village, so a Chippenham Park wedding is ideal for me!
I arrived and was delighted to see make up artist Dani Roberts. She’s always fantastic to work with! She had positioned Brownen right next to the window. This is the perfect place for getting lovely images with natural light.
I set about shooting lots of natural, relaxed photos of the bridal prep, I also like to take time at this point to chat and get to know everyone. It really helps later in the day, making everyone feel at ease.
Bronwen and her bridesmaids drove to Chippenham Park to make their final preparations. Here in the bridal suite I was able to capture a lovely image of her wedding dress, as well as other details such as her perfume and wedding shoes.
There are loads of options when it comes to your Chippenham Park wedding ceremony, with 3 outdoor locations to choose from. Bronwen and Matt chose to tie the knot in the pergola, which sits just in front of the main house. The ceremony was beautiful and made extra special by her brother and sister, who both sang.
Chippenham Park is well known for it’s gardens. They offer a whole range of photo options and I was keen to take advantage. My style mixes natural images, with more dynamic, creative photography. With this in mind we took a walk and tried a whole range of different ideas, with my 2nd photographer on hand capture different angles. Matt and Bronwen were having a great time, and felt really relaxed in front of the lens. This definitely helped me to shoot some wonderful natural reactions between them, and capture their true personalities. I also had a brilliant time!
Light up letters have been really popular at weddings this year, and Matt and Bronwen went for LOVE. The lovely Lucie from Easy and Elegant Weddings provided these, and comes highly recommended! The first dance was spectacular and Matt’s footwork was impressive.
As always I was on hand to capture all the dancing right up until midnight. The action was relentless and it has to be said, these guys didn’t let me down. There was the classic “Wedding Worm” (think break dancing), a conga and even a pole dancing dance off!
If you like the images you’ve seen here and you’re planning on getting married at Chippenham Park ( or anywhere else!), then get in touch! I’d love to meet and discuss your plans.
