St Andrew the Great to start with, then a Christian Wedding at The Manor Barn Wedding Venue, this truly was a beautiful Cambridge wedding.

Hatty took my gentle advice and hired a luxury AirBnB for her bridal preparation, close to the ceremony venue. In fact, it was located opposite Stephen Hawking’s old house!

Hatty’s mother was calm and collected, cheerfully serving all the bridesmaids as they also prepared. Her maid of honour paid attention to every detail, making sure no hair and no part of the dress was out of place.

I love when our relaxed but organised planning structure takes full effect, showing the whole party was full of peace anticipating the next step of the wedding day. Editorial documentary photography requires planning so that things can run smoothly, and they certainly did.

Father of the bride, Hatty’s Dad had thoughtfully sewn a childhood photo of him and his daughter onto the underside of his tie: it was so cute!

Leading out into the Grand Arcade in Cambridge town centre, Hatty & Andy joyfully passed through the aisle their friends and family had made, leading to the VW Camper Van on the road. 

We simply explored the garden, gave Hatty & Andy time to take the wedding in and shot some gorgeous photos as they enjoyed their Christian Wedding at The Manor Barn Wedding Venue.

After the speeches (including a life size cut out of Colin Firth) we made our way into the garden area for the couple shoot.

Have you ever been to a ceilidh? If you haven’t, think of Scotland, then double it and add lots of dancing! It was a brilliant idea, and everybody (I mean, everybody) was dancing even until we left!

Hatty & Andy – I pray as you walk the path your parents have in having lifelong marriages, that your marriage brings you just as much joy. It was a privilege to shoot your wedding and will forever be in my memories of Cambridge.

All my love, Tom Keenan – Kent Wedding Photographer
