It’s always a pleasure to capture my client’s most precious memories and Kate and Adam’s Cain Manor wedding was no exception. Think pastel shades, soft golden hour sunshine, pretty blooms and a surprise mini golf course for their guests which offered the perfect summer evening entertainment…
The English summer wedding of Kate and Adam was held in the picturesque surrey countryside at the Elizabethan country house Cain Manor. They enjoyed a gloriously sunny day which was perfect for their outdoor wedding.
K&A tied the knot in front of their closest family and friends followed by champagne in the gardens while guests enjoyed ice cream and a game of mini golf!
It was an absolute pleasure to tell their story from their engagement shoot to their glorious Cain Manor wedding! The cherry on top was Kate’s reaction…
“Oh Christina, These are BEAUTIFUL!!!!! I can’t actually believe these are our wedding photos. The lighting, the colours…. you are so so talented!!!!!!!!!!! And we are SO lucky that you captured our wedding day so that we have these beautiful photos to keep forever. My grandchildren will be able to look back through these one day.
Best photographer ever and I will be shouting that from the rooftops! You deserve every success that is coming your way!
Thank you thank you thank you!!!”
I fell in love with Kate’s ring at their blossom engagement shoot, isn’t it stunning…
Kate’s bridesmaids wore these stunning Jade Maids to Measure gowns which perfectly complimented Kate’s vision.
A simple yet effective touch, pretty florals added into perfectly styled updo’s by Gemma Sutton.
Capturing my brides and their closest friends is always so much fun and the results are always some of my favourite photographs from the day…
Their ceremony was styled to perfection by stylist Linen and Lace, I really love their wooden ‘Choose a seat sign’ and their gorgeous floral chair decor which were also used later in the day for their wedding breakfast!
I spot some David Austin Garden roses…
Pure happiness in a photograph…
Out in the stunning gardens the warm summer air was filled with incredible live music by The Wanderland Band who played to K&A’s guests during their drinks reception.
As a mummy now myself, this moment is everything, a lifetime of love all wrapped up in one photograph.
The best part of a summer wedding is the amount of daylight hours you enjoy, not only do you have more time for your photos making the day much more relaxed but you also benefit from the glorious golden summer sunsets which create the dreamiest of images because of that gorgeous soft light, it’s called the golden hour for a reason!
It’s the perfect time to soak it all in together, head off for a little walk, because before you know it, it will be time to cut your cake and dance the night away. It’s a fleeting moment so enjoy every second of it together. Thankfully your beautiful wedding album will help you relive your day whenever you choose…
Congratulations Mr and Mrs Bailey and thank you so much for trusting me to capture your most precious memories. Wishing you a lifetime of happiness together!
Here’s what Kate had to say about her experience:
“We are beyond thrilled with our wedding photos and cannot recommend Christina highly enough – not only is she a super talented photographer, she also has this incredible warmth that makes you feel completely at ease in front of the camera. We had so much fun at our engagement shoot and knew then that we were in safe hands for our wedding day!
Communication was brilliant, she sent regular updates and went above and beyond with little touches. Her ‘Guide for Brides’ was invaluable, all brides should read this!! On the day itself, her professionalism shone through and the result was absolutely stunning photos that perfectly reflect our special day.
The icing on the cake was receiving our beautiful fine art album, the quality is insane! Thank you so much Christina for being part of our wedding journey and for capturing memories we will cherish forever.
If you are looking for a wedding photographer, don’t hesitate – book Christina Sarah!”
