Cambridge Wedding Photography - Ely Cathedral - Jen and Ed
Having known Jen for many years I was thrilled when she asked me to shoot her wedding this year! Especially with the day being based in my home town of Ely.
My involvement in the day started at the Poets House Hotel in Ely where Jen was getting ready with her sister - an amazing location for bridal preparation. Ely itself was hosting the famous Eels Day weekend and so the buzz of a full-on food festival could be seen right outside the hotel window.
I took time to capture the bride's details - the dress, shoes and jewellery and then, after the dress went on, I made my way over to the Old Palace to see how Ed was getting on.
Jen then had the fun challenge of making her way through the crowds on the Cathedral lawns over to make her entrance and see her husband to be! After a lovely ceremony everyone made their way outside into the gardens for some bubbles and group shots.
The short walk for the new married couple to the reception was through a hilarious human arch of arms while being covered in confetti - even I got a handful ruffled into my hair while carefully negotiating the tunnel backwards!
The reception venue of the Lady Chapel was pretty awe-inspiring to say the least. The guests were treated to some fantastic choral singing along with prosecco and some wonderful food. We captured some great bride and groom shots around the cathedral grounds both before the meal and into the evening and also had the entire inside of the Cathedral itself to use as a backdrop!
After shooting the first dance and a bit of the party afterwards, my wife Catherine (and assistant for the evening) headed home and let the wedding guests carry on enjoying themselves!
