Chicheley Hall Wedding Photographs
Frank and Lucy
On August 1st I had the pleasure of capturing the beautiful summer wedding of Frank and Lucy. As you’ll see from the images the weather was a warm and sunny day. The couple chose an intimate ceremony at Bletchley Registry Office. Frank and Lucy arrived in a Red Corvette. Lucy’s dress and the car matched perfectly. After the small ceremony at the Registry office the couple drove off to their additional wedding ceremony.
Frank and Lucy chose the stunning Chicheley Hall
The Bridal party then moved on to Chicheley Hall Milton Keynes, for their wedding Breakfast. Ther Wedding Breakfast was preceded by another ceremony and blessing carried out by their Minister. The blessing was very spiritual and deep. The Wedding was very intimate, with full attention and importance surrounding their faith. I felt very special to be involved! It was a very serene and moving ceremony.
Frank and Lucy welcomed everyone joining them for their wedding breakfast. Their Minister also joined us for the day! I had also been invited to join the wedding party for a very special wedding breakfast. I felt very honoured to be invited to join them. It was a lovely celebration. It was a perfect summer wedding.
I felt that I had known them all for far longer than just the wedding day. I became a guest, with family and friends treating me as their own. To be part of the couple’s big day, to carry the importance of documenting their memories, their history, for generations to see, isn’t just a job, it is a passion for me. I can’t think of anything better as a job! You’re witnessing happiness, love and exchanges of vows. You’re experiencing special moments, made even more special when you are invited to stop working, and join in fully with the couples celebration meal. It also means that as a wedding photographer, I’m doing something right. For me it became a proud, and poignant moment!
Chicheley Hall is a Grade I listed building. It is complemented by the extensive gardens that can accommodate marquees for up to 300 guests. The venue is licensed for civil ceremonies. The Main House and its bar, sitting room, and dining room provides the ideal venue for, both intimate and exclusive wedding receptions.
The main door opens to a fine panelled Great Hall, with a classical double-height ceiling. Beautiful marble columns, lead you to oak staircases to the upper floors. There is ‘secret’ library on the upper floor, with all shelving and books concealed behind what appears to be panelling. The interior includes some of the finest woodcarving, joinery and plasterwork in any English country house of its period.
Many Congratulations to the New Mr and Mrs Da Silva!
