Elton Hall Wedding Photography of Iain and Lyndsey
I was delighted when Iain and Lyndsey commissioned me for their Elton Hall wedding photography, it’s a venue which is rarely available for weddings and I had really been looking forward to it during the months running up. We had met up a few before for the pre-wedding shoot and I knew then that this day at Elton Hall was going to be special. The wedding day was a class act from start to end, the wedding ceremony was held at Castor Church, before the wedding party and guests were treated to the sole use of Elton Hall and its grand and outstanding grounds and gardens. I love marquee receptions and this was one the finest marquee’s I’ve had the pleasure to photograph in. You will see in the photographs which follow; from the magical Tiffany & Co. engagement and wedding rings and accessories, the grooms highland kilt, to the lovely vintage style tea party wedding breakfast, and last but certainly not least star of Britains Got Talent, and runner up in 2009, the magnificent Saxophonist Julian Smith; who entertained and captivated everyone in the marquee with his exceptional Saxophone playing.
The wedding day began with a short visit to the brides family home where I photographed quite simply the finest engagement ring I have ever seen. Take a moment to check out the shots of the diamond Tiffany & co. engagement ring below and then later on when accompanied with the two matching Tiffany & Co. diamond encrusted wedding rings. Once I’d travelled the 30 mins or so to Castor Church near Peterborough, where the wedding ceremony was to be held I then photographed entirely in my trade mark documentary style. I used my small unobtrusive Fuji X-Pro1 camera for most of the shots outside and then inconjuction with a Canon 1d and 85mm prime for most of the shots in the church. We arrived at Elton Hall for the wedding reception where Pimms was served on the lawn in grounds, later on we took 30 mins to complete family and group photographs. My attentions were then drawn to the reception and many of the details which are shown below. Wedding Party and guests enjoyed the wedding breakfast which was afternoon tea served on vintage cake stands.

Iain & Lyndsey were keen to take advantage of Elton Hall’s grounds and we took about 30 mins to capture a variety of shots including the orangery and a couple of Elton Halls quieter corners before returning to the marquee where Saxophonist Julian Smith kicked off the evenings entertainment.

Iain & Lyndsey were treated two first dances as Julian Smith invited the newly weds to the dance floor and played his saxophone for an impromptu first dance for them both.
