Stephen & Rebecca’s Wedding at Nutfield Priory
Stephen & Rebecca’s Wedding at Nutfield Priory had been in my diary for a while and I could not wait to photograph their Wedding at St Mary’s Church in Caterham and then onto the beautiful Nutfield Priory. This country house hotel is inspired by the Neo-Gothic splendour of the Palace of Westminster and dates back to 1872. With its high ceilings and splendid decor it is a perfect location for Weddings.
Rebecca had organised a surprise for Stephen on the Day. In the morning an Aston martin was delivered to the house which they would have use for throughout the day. As you will see below I had to incorporate this rather fine car into some of the images on the day, it would be rather rude not do.
For me the day started with Rebecca, her Sister and her Mother getting ready for the day ahead. After what was a very calm morning we headed to St Mary’s Church. Once again I was greeted with another vicar who had some rather strict guidelines but we able to work around this and capture the images required.
Back at Nutfield Priory the guests were greeted with a champaign reception in the library and with its large windows allowed a beautiful soft natural light to flood in, perfect for some candid images of the guests enjoying the day.
As we headed into the evening we were able to use the natural splendour of the building for some image of Rebecca & Stephen together. At the main entrance, a large lamp beautifully lights the curved arch stonework and is perfect for a romantic image of the Bride and Groom before the sun finally sets.
Once back inside for the evening reception Rebecca & Stephen had their first dance and they danced the night away with Family & Friends.
Below is a small selection of images from the day.
