What a fabulous wedding! I know Lauren’s sister from back in our school days so it was a real pleasure to be photographing Chris and Lauren’s big day. They looked absolutely gorgeous, and you could see instantly all the effort they had put in to making this a classy and elegant wedding.
Cain Manor is another one of the exclusive Bijou Venue’s, and having photographed a wedding at their Chertsey Venue, Botleys Mansion, just in April this year, I knew their service would be impeccable, and it certainly was. Cain Manor is a stunning oak built Manor House situated in the North Downs and was the perfect setting for Chris and Lauren’s wedding. Lauren had chosen to have her Bridal gown, along with all four Bridesmaids dresses designed and made by the sensational Felicity Westmacott. It’s so rare to see Bridesmaid wearing ivory and most Brides wouldn’t dream of it, but Lauren had taken this inspiration from Kate Middletons Wedding to our wonderful Prince William! and it definitely worked, the girls looked fab, and I must say both me and Kelly fell in love with Laurens’ dress!
I must give a big credit to Chris and Lauren’s Dream Team… Bradley Wright – Lauren and the girls amazing hair stylist, he is definitely one of the best I’ve seen, so relaxed and so fast! Also Kay Matthew Make-up Artist who did the girls make-up, she did an excellent job and I would recommend her to any bride!
Now, their talented florist – Martin & the Magpie added an extra touch of class with elegant yet timeless bouquets and stunning floral arrangements throughout the venue. Okay, finally, I have to mention “the cake”. I think Lauren actually wanted to marry the cake too! She just loved it and I was under strict instructions to get lots of photos of it! This amazing piece of art is by Nicola at Hall of Cakes and is one of the best I’ve ever seen, as you can see below.
With fantastic weather, me and Kelly photographed the girls, while Tim went to the boys. I’m so pleased with all of the photos, so much so, that there are over 150 photos on this post, and there are even more to come…
A huge congratulations to Chris and Lauren, I wish you all the best for the future and I look forward to catching up with you soon.
