The perfect cure for the January blues is a wedding like this. Gavin and Natasha had a Cain Manor wedding and the weather on their day was absolutely stunning. A chill in the air but a blue sky and beautiful golden sunshine.
When I arrived, the girls from Linen and Lace and Clair Lythgoe the florist were busily dressing Cain Manor to perfection. The flowers were in abundance. There were fairy lights and candles dotted around the venue, the fire was already roaring and there were flashes of thistle and tartan everywhere (Gavin is Scottish!)
Natasha, supported by her lovely maids, got ready in the bridal suite upstairs. Her hair and make up was by the super talented Gemma Sutton and her dress was by Mark Lesley. Gavin and his groomsmen dressed in full traditional Scottish attire. When everyone was ready we all headed downstairs to be greeted by a trio of bagpipers. They piped as Natasha was walked up the aisle by her father.
The ceremony was just lovely and included the most fantastic (and really rather emotional) reading by Natasha’s sister Zara. When the registrar announced that Natasha and Gavin were finally husband and wife the room erupted with clapping and cheering. Again the newly weds were lead out of the ceremony to the sound of bagpipes and we all headed out to a champagne reception.
I was lucky to be able to borrow Gavin and Natasha and head out across the fields of Cain Manor for some photos as the sun began to set. Golden hour is always my favourite time of any day but on a bright January day like this it was perfect.
Gavin and Natasha, thank you so much for entrusting me with your wedding photography. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know you both and wish you many years of happiness. I hope Australia is warmer than England, have a great time. Faye x
