Natasha and Ian’s Cliveden House Wedding

This was a wedding I shot with the fantastic Bloomsbury films who it was a pleasure to work with!

I arrived early at Cliveden House on a gorgeous morning to have a wander round the grounds and get a few shots of this fabulous house and gardens.

Natasha was getting ready in one of the master suits. Everyone was enjoying the morning and I got some great shots of the girls getting ready as well as a few shots of Natasha’s fabulous Christian Louboutin’s and gorgeous dress!

The first of the days ceremonies was in a church in London. There were Routemaster buses laid on to take people from Cliveden to the church. Natasha had a little more luxurious transport, a brilliant white Rolls Royce Phantom.

After the ceremony we got back on the busses for a short drive to Pissarro, a little restaurant on the banks of the Thames. The guests enjoyed Champagne and canapés while being entertained by a band plying traditional Russian music.

From Pissarro it was back to Cliveden for a second, civil ceremony and more Champagne followed by a lavish wedding breakfast.

The end of the evening for me was the first dance followed by an amazing firework display!

All in all a very long but very enjoyable day! Enjoy the photographs.
