Just a couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Emma and Simon’s wedding at Great Fosters in Egham, Surrey. Great Fosters is a stunning hotel in near Windsor, Surrey and has a truly remarkable heritage. It was possibly built as a royal hunting lodge in 1550 and possesses a plethora of original details and features including mullioned windows, Jacobean fireplaces, a rare oakwell staircase, authentic tapestries and moulded ceilings.
This was my first time photographing a wedding at Great Fosters, it was a typical May weekend, mixed weather and unfortunately it rained just as the bride needed to make her way from her room to the ceremony. Umbrellas certainly add a certain amount of drama to a wet wedding day! Emma was truly taken back by the occasion as she saw her Groom for the first time that day and was overcome with emotion. Emma and Simon were married by 15.30, at which point the skies cleared and the sun came out, superb timing!
As the sun beamed, it allowed us to get outside in to the gardens including the famous bridge covered in wisteria over the pond, the amazing lawns and topiary gardens, an amazing setting for a wedding day. The bridal party then went inside to their beautifully decorated and intimate oak beamed room for their wedding breakfast.
I’m pretty certain the celebrations would have gone on late in to the night!! Congratulations again Mr & Mrs Crawt, and at the request of the newlyweds I have agreed to show just a couple of photos from their wedding day, enjoy.
