Summer Wedding I The Granary Barns Estates I Cambridge Wedding Photography


The Granary Barns Estates i summer wedding 

The Granary Barns Estates was the perfect setting for Jen & NIck's wedding on one of those  glorious summer days last year. Jen looked stunning in her Anna Sorano dress and as I turned up in the morning she was being pampered and prepared for her debut by the amazing MUA Kate Fletcher from Flash Kate Bridal and Hair by Lucy from Lucy’s Organic Styling. Jens Mum and bridesmaids were on hand supposedly to help keep her calm but this was never an issue for this cool cookie.

My Second photographer Jonathan had gone to meet the boys at the Bedford Lodge Hotel in Newmarket. The boys wore a classic three piece Ted Baker suits in Royal blue. The buttonhole gave a tasteful nod to the brides Scottish heritage. Nick travelled to the venue in an open top Mercedes SLK perfectly fitting for this suave and charming gentleman and the beautiful British summer day.

Throughout the day we were treated to glorious sunshine and were afforded the opportunity to have the drinks and canapés reception in the beautiful manicured lawns of The Granary Barns Estates. The guests were later treated to an amazing three course dinner prepared and served by the team from Hall & Co Events Dining. A ceilidh by the talented Stumpy Oak followed a perfectly un-choreographed and natural first dance.

The tasteful wedding bouquet by Feather & Fern matched beautifully with the bridesmaids dresses, complimenting the intricate detailing of the brides dress.  Jen & Nick’s cake by One Part Love Bakery made a stunning centre piece and it certainly tasted good too.

I chatted with Jen and Nick following their wedding and asked about the proposal, wedding planning and the day itself.

Where did you meet?

Nick was originally from Cambridge and back in 2012 was working at the MRC Human Nutrition Research unit. I had moved down from Edinburgh to study at the same institute. The rest as they say is history

How did Nick propose?

Nick proposed at the summit of Mount Rinjani in Lombok, Indonesia. The proposal followed a two day hike and of course he’d planned for someone to be on hand to capture it all on his iPhone.


How long did you plan for the big day?

We started planning about nine months before the day itself. We are busy people but actually we work better this way too. Some people take a lot longer but it worked for us.

What was the favourite part of your day?

The ceremony was perfect but being introduced as Mr & Mrs Bond to all out guests and friends at the wedding breakfast was just an amazing feeling.

Any tips/advice you’d like to share which you learnt along the way?

When comparing options for the smaller things or thinking about the finer details make the decisions straight away. If not you may need to do all the reviewing again as its impossible to keep it all in your head. Make snap decision and get it off your plate sooner. Plus trust your first instincts these will be the right ones for your day. Also delegate, delegate, delegate!

Any little things you fell out over during the planning stages?

The amount of time spent on planning.

Where did you go on honeymoon?

Touring Bordeaux drinking wine, eating cheese and speaking French poorly!
