Eggington House Wedding Photography
Amanda and Neil had an amazing day at the beautiful Eggington House in Bedfordshire.
They had a vision for their day. And it was BIG. They wanted to do make as much as possible, have their own space, have lots of guests, keep it local, make it child friendly…and just generally have an all-round awesome day! And believe me they achieved it!
The first godsend in their plans was to find the stunningly beautiful Eggington House. The grounds are amazing, with lots of different areas for photos and playing; including a former sunken tennis court which is now a pretty dappled enclosure where they held their Humanist ceremony. A woodland walk, a rose garden, more formal lawns around the house and not to mention the massive fields further at the back which has the biggest marquee I’ve ever seen! And the owners, Susie and Oliver, are wonderful. Kind and thoughtful, perfect hosts for a wedding – and they make the most amazing sourdough!
Eggington House is quite a new venue and I was incredibly happy when it opened it’s doors – as it’s only a 5 minute drive from my house! It’s great as a wedding photographer to have this beauty on my doorstep.
Everyone chipped in to help Amanda and Neil realise their day. Amanda made all the little pink tutu’s for her younger bridesmaids and sourced all the beautiful vintage crockery. Friends and family helped out with the wedding cake and desserts, mums made the napkins, table cloths and bunting, etc and everything else was from local suppliers – (including me)! It was a such a great wedding and to know all the effort everyone put into it – it felt really special too.
To round off the day, Amanda and Neil had given everyone Smore’s (chocolate and marshmallow and sticks) as favours to be used at the evening bonfire. Owner Ollie worked really hard keeping it safe and going! We also had the most amazing sunset to round off the day, and it was really special to photograph Amanda and Neil as they watched the sun set on their beautiful day. It was truly a very special moment.
