Here is Cecilia and Tom’s wedding at Lillibrooke Manor, Maidenhead.
Their wedding day had quite a few traditional Chinese touches spread around the venue. Cecilia’s brother put together a cake and sweet table (which looked REALLY good) and one of their friends gave the most slapstick reading of Dr Seuss’s ‘Oh the Places You’ll Go!’ with full on arm movements and tonality – It was a scream to watch.
The day started for me at Cecilia’s parents and then we all made our way to where Tom was waiting at Lillibrooke Manor.
The ceremony Barn was nicely decorated with cartwheels on the walls holding lots of flowers and after the formalities we went outside into the sun for some photos and their drinks reception.
Their invites were based around Penguin Books in design and Cecilia’s love of Festoon lights was clear with how many were decorating the inside of the main barn.
After dinner we scooted off to the adjacent field where there were some poppies growing for a few second stage photos (I like to split the couple shots into two smaller stages across the day) and these worked out really well. The weather and light was kind to us too.
For their first dance they had taken lessons and it was beautiful to watch and shoot with some of my nicest first dance shots ever (as very few people were hidden behind their phones) and the sun was setting at just the right time too to catch it coming in through the barn doors.
The rest of the evening went without a hitch, I stayed quite late as things were pretty non stop!
Here are some more photos from their day:
