Emmanuel College, Cambridge – Wedding Photography – Alan & Jenny – Howell Photography

Doug and I absolutely love photographing weddings at Emmanuel College for so many reasons. Rain or shine , this wedding was both, there are numerous places for photos. Usually the whole wedding is under one roof, we adore the beautiful chapel with the stunning chandelier and floor. We absolutely love the duck egg blue walls in the dining room. The colours are muted and chalky in a sort of Farrow and Ball palette which is our favorite colour chart of all. More importantly there is something very lovely about witnessing the excitement and love when old friends get together and catch up. Soon, as is often with the colleges you can see everyone transported back to memories of sitting together in the old dining hall where they once would have been between lectures. To return together to marry in the chapel is so very special. Jenny and Alan’s wedding was late summer early Autumn and the trees had changed colour early. The garden looks great at any time of the year but on this day was very beautiful, as was the soft light. The girls in particular at this wedding were really up for a great time. I could tell that Jenny must have been very popular and I could understand why. I found it great that Jenny married in her dancing shoes as well. I really liked the idea of the cycle parked just outside the chapel, flowers in the basket and at one point even a loaf of bread. Reminding Jenny of when she used to potter about town. Jenny looked very natural and decided to wear her hair down as she is known for her curls. Alan’s mum was unable to attend the wedding and like a good son he kept her updated via Skype throughout the day. A great thing to witness was him taking his phone around the empty dining hall when it was all set for dinner showing his Mum and making her feel part of the day before it filled with guests. So sweet and thoughtful. All in all this was at times quite a formal affair and at the same time so very personal to the couple and best of all it still felt relaxed.

Best wishes to you both for the future.
