If you’re hoping for a glorious day of sunshine for your wedding in the UK then statistically July is your best bet. Sophie & Craig’s Wedding at Barrington Hall, a super venue just outside Cambridge was the perfect English Summer’s day.
Stunning wedding at Barrington Hall in Cambridgeshire
The venue offers exclusive use of a private house within the grounds to bridal parties. The two bedroom areas are perfect for hair and make-up and the large kitchen area is great for breakfast or brunch and the all important bottle of fizz.
Although the house is within the grounds Sophie and her Dad were driven the very short distance to the back of Barrington Hall where Craig was waiting nervously for the ceremony to begin. With a gentle breeze the warm weather was perfect for an outdoor ceremony.
Drinks from the outdoor bar followed as guests were entertained by a pair of jazz musicians and a close up magician. A unique and popular feature were the fairground swing boats which increased in popularity as the evening progressed.
Superb place for wedding portraits.
Within the grounds of Barrington Hall is a wooded area so while the guests enjoyed the entertainment, myself and the couple headed over to capture some portraits and welcome shade. Whilst having a wonder we also made use of the larges fields beyond the grounds and they provided a superb backdrop – particularly later in the day.
The marquee had been beautifully decked out with a string of photos leading into the main seated area. The whole marquee was adorned with a lovingly selected arrangement of feature pieces, all of which were linked to the wedding’s theme of travel. The stunning centrepiece of this was the “suitcase” wedding cake, it was truly incredible and almost impossible to believe it was actually a cake and not just a great piece of art.
To kick off the party for the evening the bride and groom showcased their dance skills with a a well rehearsed routine which inspired everyone to get up and enjoy the band long into the warm summer evening.
