A moment to remember
A same-sex marriage proposal that got over two-hundred thousand views on YouTube was only the start for Jason and Daniel, who chose a sixteenth century manor house surrounded by acres of beautiful parkland for their wedding day.
This was a luxurious feast for the eyes (and the camera): from the deep red and blue velvet of Jason and Dan’s respective three-piece suits, to the old world charm of Glenham Hall’s Doriccolumns and wooden panelling.
I believe that wedding photography – beyond making everyone look good – is about capturing the importance of family, the intimacy of the occasion and the chemistry between friends. However, even the greatest venue in the world won’t do that on its own. To truly bring the it to life, a photographer needs to seamlessly blend the gravitas and joy of the special day with the character of the setting, creating a unique memory that will forever be remembered just the way you capture it.
The grand staircase serving as the wedding aisle and a live orchestra were particularly epic. I made sure to bring this out in the photos.
One of my favourite things about this one was the flamboyance; Jason and Dan came from a theatre background, and boy could you tell! Touches such as the grand staircase serving as the wedding aisle and a live (yes, live) orchestra accompanying them down the aisle were particularly epic. I made sure to bring this out in the photos.
In the end, tears were shared, fathers were proud, and love, friendship and acceptance were all around as this very special wedding drew to a close on a warm Summers’ eve, deep in the heart of Suffolk.
