Rachel and Nigel asked me to be their wedding photographer after they had been guests at a wedding that I shot up in Liverpool back in 2017.
I had photographed another wedding at Morden Hall just a few months previously to this one (Emily and Dom’s gorgeous winter wedding), so I was aware of what a truly stunning wedding venue it is. It also holds a special place in my heart because it’s where my parents got married years ago!
Spring wedding details
Rachel had mentioned to me months before the wedding how excited she was about her wedding dress. She sent me a photo of her trying it on and I fell in love with it too. A floral wedding dress! It was so unique and beautiful, and it even had pockets which in my mind adds at least 50 cool points.
Rachel and Nigel love to travel. When they invited me round to their house before the wedding I took some time to browse their holiday photos framed on the walls. It’s clearly very important to them to explore the world and for that reason they named their tables after a few of their favourite destinations. I loved their DIY world map table plan. They also asked their guests, ahead of the wedding day, to provide a photo of themselves on holiday. Each photo was printed and placed where the guest would sit, and before the meal they were told to ask the other people on their table for the stories behind their holiday snaps. I thought that was such a lovely idea and a great way to get people chatting and help to break the ice.
I also adored their stunning wedding cake, adorned with spring flowers and with a little lego wedding ceremony setup on top.
Emotional wedding at Morden Hall
From when Rachel’s dad and grandma both clapped eyes on her as a bride, to the look on Nigel’s face as he saw her walking down the aisle; and from the happy tears during the ceremony, to the beautiful words during the speeches, it was a wedding day absolutely packed full of love. I’m so glad I got to be a part of it, and wish that we could do it all over again!
