This magnificent marquee is situated in the stunning grounds of Luton Hoo Estate’s private Walled Garden and was the perfect setting for Tania and Jordan’s big day in July. The Estate sits in the heart of Bedfordshire whilst the ornate gardens date back to the late 18th century being a production centre for the estate’s fruit and vegetables. Today the green houses are still in tact and whilst it’s not permitted to enter, they make for a unique and historical backdrop to the photos.
The day started at a nearby hotel where Tania and her bridesmaids and family were getting ready. With heavy clouds and spitting rain I arrived to find poor Tania in dismay at the prospect of their outdoor wedding ceremony being ruined. Despite my assurances that all would be well whatever the weather there was apprehension in the air as we all kept our eyes poised on the sky outside. To everyone’s delight, a break in the clouds became visible and a hint of hopeful blue sky finally arrived met with cheers all round! It was an emotional start to the day and I captured some lovely shots before the ceremony started. Tania and Jordan had dressed the gardens outside the conservatory with beautiful red Chinese lanterns and elegant white trees held in place by the ushers as the strong winds kept blowing them over! After a tearful ceremony I took the newlyweds around the gardens for a relaxed and sunny couple shoot. Jordan is Jewish and Tania is Chinese and the mixture of the two cultures made for an unforgettable wedding reception! The marquee looked absolutely stunning inside and the dancing started immediately as Tania and Jordan were welcomed in to the room with popular traditions taking place everywhere I turned. I thoroughly enjoyed capturing their wedding and am really excited to share some of their images from the day. Special thanks to Alicia for second shooting. 🙂
