A Fairytale Wedding in Lincolnshire
Beautiful Burghley House wedding photography to share with you this week. Possibly the grandest venue I’ve ever worked at, Burghley House is a majestic country estate in Lincolnshire. It looks like something from a period drama. Think Downton Abbey, Pride & Prejudice, Hogwarts…!
Pippa & Steve celebrated their marriage at Burghley House on a crisp autumnal day. Although I love summer weddings for the bright sunshine, there’s something about the quality of light in autumn that really makes the images sing. It was great to ply my wedding photography trade in Lincoln too, such a lovely county & one I’m looking forward to returning to soon!
It’s great working with such a lovely, passionate couple. They clearly mean the world to each other. They’re international too! Pippa is our English rose (who looked simply beautiful, check out her gorgeous dress & veil) & Steve hails from the mighty South Africa. I love it when that happens, a fusion of people, cultures & accents (usually it’s just me & my scouse twang, lowering the tone).
Stately Home Weddings
Burghley House is one of England’s greatest Elizabethan houses, dating all the way back to 1555! Majestic grounds & numerous ornate features made it such a pleasure to photograph. There is a fabulous triple-arched bridge in the grounds which was my favourite part. We did try and get a few photos featuring the roaming herds of deer but I think the sight of my long lens scared them away. Wouldn’t be the first time…
I grabbed a few minutes between the ceremony and reception to capture a few photos of the bride & groom in the last of the evening light. I photograph most of the day naturally as events unfold but I do love these few minutes with the bride & groom to create something more intimate. The image of Pippa & Steve in silhouette against the evening sky has helped me to win a couple of awards too which is fantastic! I hope you enjoy this small gallery of Burghley House wedding photography. Be sure to check out my newly updated portfolio too for more wedding inspiration. Thanks for looking!
