Emily & Hugo’s Peterborough Cathedral wedding was a real privilege to shoot. Not only because they are a delightful couple, but because I love the cathedral setting and the grandeur of the architecture and the living history of the building. We began at the charming Old Bridge Hotel in Huntingdon where Emily was getting ready with her bridesmaids and family. We then travelled to Peterborough Cathedral for the wedding ceremony. Hugo had been getting ready at his parent’s house, which is located within the cathedral grounds, and had then made the short walk into the cathedral to wait for the bridal party to arrive. I’d recommended to Emily & Hugo to book a second photographer for a few hours to make the most of the photography, and so my colleague Liv was positioned high in the Cathedral eaves to capture Emily’s entrance from above. It was great to be able to shoot a ceremony in the cathedral setting, and there was fantastic choral music throughout the service. Afterwards the entire wedding party assembled on the lawns in front of the cathedral in anticipation of showering the newlyweds in confetti. The guests then made their way to Island Hall in Godmanchester for the drinks reception. Emily and Hugo and their immediate families stayed behind for some family photos in Hugo’s parents garden, and then we took the bride and groom for some portraits around the garden and back into the cathedral. It was then time to rejoin the wedding party and head to Island Hall. The drinks reception was in full swing and Island Hall has a beautiful English garden that backs onto the Great River Ouse, it really is a lovely scenic spot in the grounds of the 18th century mansion. We made time for a few more family group photos in the garden, before the guests took their seats in the marquee. We photographed the speeches, and that was the end of the photography coverage for this wedding, but I’m sure the evening was a fantastic party.
