Emily and Kaine’s Missenden Abbey wedding was so much fun to photograph, and I’m certain their guests will have loved the party celebrations as much as I enjoyed documenting the day!
Missenden Abbey in such a wonderful setting, and the interiors and exteriors really are as beautiful as you see in my pictures. With its high ceilings, chandeliers, stained glass windows, and gorgeous landscaped gardens, the abbey is a truly breathtaking wedding venue. So I can 100% understand why Emily and Kaine fell in love with this fabulous historic venue!
Emily and Kaine brought so much energy to their wedding celebrations, and their love for one another was so apparent throughout the day. Their cheeky smiles and antics also made for some great picture opportunities, especially so when Kaine decided to energetically dive in with a photobomb moment for the picture of the bridesmaids whilst they were sat down on the bouncy castle. As you can imagine, not only did the ladies get a surprise kick back, but we also got some fabulous smiles and the resulting laughter in my images!
The guests were in high spirits all day too, and the laughter and smiles were highly infectious during the drinks reception, meal and speeches. When everyone is in fun loving party mode it certainly makes my job so much fun, and at times like this I don’t feel like I’m really working at all!
Come the evening, I thought everyone would be flagging, but no chance – once the music came on, the dance floor was pulsating with non-stop dance moves as the wedding party continued celebrating into the small hours!
By the end of this wedding, I was exhausted after doing my best to keep up with Emily and Kaine’s lively friends and family from behind my camera!
Here is the very kind email I received from Emily & Kaine:
Your portfolio was the first we had viewed and its safe to say no others came close.
As a couple who really do not enjoy having our photo taken we were dreading having a day filled with awkward posing and non stop smiling. After meeting with you at the venue, Missenden Abbey, your enthusiasm and passion put our worries to rest and we felt completely at ease that we had chosen the right photographer for our special day.
Throughout the day we had candid photos as well as the essential family shots and whilst we knew our photo was being taken, you had it under control. Each photo was captured quickly and no detail was missed. During the family shots we were not stressed at all and you managed to organise large groups (some more difficult than others) whilst being completely approachable and calm.
Guests were approaching us during in the day and the next morning to compliment our photographer and how they just could not wait to see the photos! You were certainly the talking point at breakfast the following morning amongst our guests.
They loved your impeccable attention to detail and enthusiasm for trying new shots. I am sure at times the best man & usher thought they were posing for Vogue.
Now we have viewed the photos we cannot thank you enough. We are in love with them and could not have wished for anyone better to capture our day and leave us with the most breath-taking photos to remember the best day of our lives. It was rather emotional looking through pictures reliving the whole day, you captured everything!
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
Emily & Kaine
