Hampshire Wedding Photographers Cain Manor Two Lockdown Weddings
We met Emma and Sam at Ascot wedding fair years and year ago. Then covid happened and weddings didn’t look how they did when we were chatting at the wedding fair.
Emma and Sam were one of the postponed couples and managed to move their wedding to April for their ceremony and a bit of afternoon tea. They were then able to do the whole shindig in August of the same year, getting to wear their wedding outfits twice! This blog is about their first wedding part A and will follow up with wedding part B in another post.
Emma and Sam planned their special day to take place at Cain Manor. Cain Manor is a Bijoux Weddings venue and sits between Surrey and Hampshire in an Elizabethan building built in the late 16th century in the parish of Headley, Hampshire. It’s only 2 miles away from Churt in Surrey, making it a perfect combination of a Surrey Wedding and Hampshire Wedding!
The day went ahead as if it were a full wedding. Getting ready in the morning with the most relaxed bride, stunning portraits of her in the bathroom as she stepped into her shoes, misty eyes when she saw her Mum and Dad; it was a special moment. The only different thing is that we wore masks and antibac everywhere.
The ceremony was beautiful, socially distanced beautifulness! The drinks reception saw lovely weather and drinks outdoors whilst we did a few family groups on the lawn.
Before the couple went in for their wedding breakfast in the outdoor gazebo they had installed; we did a few bridal portraits to commemorate their wedding day around the grounds.
They are some of my favourite portraits, not rushed, relaxed and perfectly in the moment.
Their second wedding, or wedding part B as we call it, was exactly the same, relaxed and had the time to push the creativity a little and created some of our favourite bridal portraits ever. More to come on their second blog update!
With thanks to the wedding staff at Cain Manor.
