Last Friday (12th June 2015) I had the absolute pleasure of photographing the wedding of Victoria and James at Parklands Quendon Hall. Quendon Hall is a beautiful 17th century mansion house and is set in idyllic rolling parkland and certainly adds that WOW factor to your wedding day.
The day started with both Victoria and James getting ready at Parklands, Victoria is was in the stunning bridal suite and James was getting ready in one of their cottages, they held their ceremony in the grand Banqueting Hall, drinks reception in the gorgeous grounds and their wedding breakfast and reception in the silk-lined pavilion.
They exclusively showcased their engagement session to their family and friends at the start of the wedding breakfast, it was great seeing my work on the screens. Back in April we spent the day in Bournemouth photographing their e:session - it was a full on day, working in what seemed like gail force winds to me lol...
Their engagement session is now live please click on the link below to check it out.
