Corpus Christi College, Cambridge – Wedding Photography – Sophie & Guy – Howell Photography

Sophie and Guy were married in December at Corpus Christ College on a crisp and beautiful winters day. Sophie didn’t want her wedding images to scream Christmas but was happy with a subtle hint of the upcoming festivities. She made it easier by avoiding the obvious red flowers and instead chose some extremely pretty cream with hints of peachy pinks. They were actually some of the prettiest winter wedding flowers I had seen. Despite the wedding and college being quite formal Sophie and Guy wanted their photographs to be relaxed which we also prefer. When we arrived at Sophie’s Mums house in Cambridge we were greeted with coffee and food which is always a great way to relax with the wedding party,  getting to know them a little while taking everything in and immediately looking for photo opportunities. As we were doing this we were informed that there was a power cut!  The only power was in the attic room at the top of the house. Up three floors we went to find a very relaxed Sophie with her make up artist and bridesmaids complete with blankets and shawls happily watching Sophie having her make up and hair done. They were all very calm despite the power problems. After lunch around the fire the girls had fun trying on different fur jackets. I really love this time in the morning, I know not everyone wants these moments captured but I think as a photographer it completes and is part of the story of the day. Sophie stayed relaxed even when Doug asked to hang her dress in a tree outside. If you have an upcoming wedding with us and this would freak you out don’t worry. If you don’t want your dress hung outside we won’t mind and are just as happy to photograph it inside. Here are a few highlights of a wonderful day …………………………

Best wishes to you both xx
