Back in August I made my first ever visit to the magnificent Holmewood Hall for Atlanta and Piers’ super sophisticated wedding. Holmewood Hall, which dates from 1873, is a stunning Tudor Gothic style mansion set in the heart of the Cambridgeshire countryside. It really is an impressive and imposing location for a wedding.
I met with Atlanta and her bridesmaids in the beautiful private dressing room of the mansion house which overlooks the stunning grounds from the first floor. Makeup was being done by Beautiano and Phoebe Joyce Artistry whilst Stacie Goodwin Bridal was busy with all things hair. As the ceremony time approached and the excitement levels began to rise Atlanta slipped into her stunning Galia Lahav wedding dress, which was from Browns Bride of London. Her bridesmaids wore dazzling matching dresses which were from Chi Chi London.
Meanwhile downstairs in the impressive 50ft long Gold Room, Piers waited nervously for the arrival of his wife to be. He looked very dapper in his 3 piece suit which was from Moss Bros. The ceremony was a wonderful affair held in front of their closest friends and family. There was lots of love on display as well as a few tears too! With the legal formalities completed everyone made their way outside onto the lawn in preparation for the confetti only to be forced back inside at the last minute due to a very sharp and sudden downpour of rain.
Once the rain cleared we went back outside to make the most of the magnificent grounds to take some formal family and group shots before heading off out with Atlanta and Piers on their own for some more intimate portraits. With the photos completed we made our way back into the dining room for the wedding breakfast. It was during the meal when Atlanta sprung a little surprise for Piers and their guests in the form of Your Singing Waiters. The waiters caused a little bit of controlled chaos before unleashing a smash hit sing-a-long which nearly took the roof off the room. For the evening reception DJDK kept the dancefloor rocking in the back bar with a selection of tunes which made sure shapes were thrown.
Before I sign off I’d like to say a massive thank you to Atlanta and Piers for having me along to photograph their special day at Holmewood Hall. It was also lovely to be able to catch up with Grace and Antonio, who were guests, who’s wedding I shot at Crockwell Farm two years prior. I should also mention Optimum Weddings and Wren Ark who did a sterling job with the venue styling, making this already impressive manor house look even more magnificent. And a final tip of the hat to Jamie Ferguson Films who did a sterling job on the video front. Here’s fifty photos to give you a flavour of Atlanta and Piers’ day . . .
