Beckie & Jack’s Hardwick Moat wedding was my first time to this beautiful hilltop venue set in rural Cambridgeshire. The day began with Beckie and her bridesmaids getting ready at her family home, before the bridal party made their way to Kimbolton church for the ceremony. Like many days in July 2023, this day was wet. Umbrellas were needed as Beckie and the bridesmaids made their way into the church, which was beautifully dressed with floral blooms. After a traditional church ceremony, guests gathered outside under umbrellas ready for the confetti exit. Due to the wet conditions there was no hanging around as the newlyweds dashed into a vintage soft top Land Rover for their departure. This however was a fake exit as the Land Rover looped around to the other side of the church for the couple to return in order to take the various formal family photographs in the church. Usually these would be taken outside somewhere, but as the weather was not on side, we used the nave of the church and I brought out some studio lighting. With the group photos completed, and a few portraits of Beckie and Jack too, it was time to head to Hardwick Moat wedding venue. The wedding guests were already enjoying the beautiful marquee and drinks reception, and were waiting to welcome the new Mr and Mrs to their wedding party. The marquee was full of flowers and fantastic foliage, and looked amazing with so much attention to detail. Guests enjoyed drinks and canapés and plenty of chit chat before taking their seats for the wedding breakfast, followed by the brilliant speeches. In the evening guests were treated to one of the best wedding bands I have encountered, who brought great energy and swagger and lit the party touchpaper.
