Cambridge Wedding Photography - Selwyn College & Kings College - Nathaniel and Volker
The 6th August 2016 - An amazingly hot day and what a day it was with the Cambridge colleges wedding of Nathaniel and Volker. I'd had a couple of FaceTime calls with them earlier in the year and I could tell this was going to be an absolutely magic special occasion! It's not often you get two college backdrops in one day.
My assistant photographer for the day was Vaida from http://www.phototale.co.uk and we headed first of all to a house on Victoria Road in Cambridge that they'd booked up through AirBnB - an amazing location and spotless property to shoot all the double groom prep in! I knew this was going to a be a bit of a dual language day and, although my german is not quite up to scratch (i.e. non existent), I could tell that they were having plenty of hilarious conversations - perfect for shooting the many smiles that were going around!
With the men ready and looking their best we made our way to the ceremony location - Selwyn College in Cambridge. The service itself was a lovely small private affair within the college buildings followed then by a beautiful outdoor blessing in the tropical-paradise-like gardens in front of all their family and many many friends from around the world! With everyone enjoying a sumptuous buffet, we took a walk around the college grounds with Nathaniel and Volker to capture some shots of just the two of them.
After a break in the day to relax a little (for them and Vaida and I!), everyone took a brilliant punting journey from the quayside down towards the second venue - Kings College. Ready to greet them was a fantastic champagne reception on the rear lawn and also a completely cloudless sky giving the most amazing blanket of blue.
The wedding breakfast was held in the jaw-dropping Great Hall where we all got to listen to some lovely warming speeches followed by a great first dance with the two grooms and their mums taking centre stage!
Take a look below for a selection of shots from their big day...
