Peterborough Wedding Photography - Haycock Hotel with Charlotte & Iain

The Haycock Hotel in Wansford, near Peterborough, Cambridgeshire is a regular venue for our wedding photography. Both Charlotte and Iain are in the Military which meant the first opportunity we had to meet was for their Pre-wedding Engagement Photo Shoot, at the Haycock, three days before their wedding. After the shoot, a relaxed cup of coffee and a chat, we were all upto speed with the arrangements for the day and how the photography timeline was going to work.

The day was bathed in sunlight, thankfully, as the days leading upto the wedding the skies continually rained resulting in very wet and soft grass areas and flooding the river Nene. The beauty of the Haycock Hotel is that there are plenty of ‘hard standing’ options when required so we opted for ‘plan B’ and the day went without a hitch. We were especially excited with the prospect of an official Guards Honour (a first for us), also with some of Charlotte’s and Iain’s colleagues re-forming a band to entertain during the evening, which leads to another ‘first’. After the band played a personal song for Charlotte & Iain, Rob (Strobe Disco Roadshow) announced the first dance. Everyone gathered as the newly wed couple embraced for a smooch when suddenly the music changed to the Birdy Song with Charlotte & Iain performing the mandatory arm waving and bum wiggling to everyones delight. It wasn’t cheesy at all, but strangely fitting, a brilliant idea - a special moment on many levels for everyone to smile at in years to come.

A huge Congratulations to Charlotte & Iain. We have full respect and admiration for the work you both do, here are some of your best bits ……..

Peterborough Wedding Photography - Rebecca & Glenn at the Haycock Hotel

Our wedding season kicked off in April with two weddings at the Haycock Hotel in Wansford, near Peterborough. Having seen us at the Haycock wedding fayre Rebecca & Glenn booked us almost exactly 12 months before their big day.

The day started for us at 10.00 am at Rebecca’s parents farm, in Aslackby, Lincolnshire, with a very relaxed bride and bridesmaids all getting prepared for Rebecca & Glenn’s big day. The ceremony was at 1.00pm so I left the bridal preparations at 12.00 to catch the Groom and Groomsmen leaving the pub for a short walk to the church to meet the friends and family arriving. Unfortunately my infamous sun dance didn’t work, the dark skies threatened for most of the morning and they finally deciding to rain 10 minutes before Rebecca was due, however we thankfully managed to get Rebecca from the bridal car to the church in-between the showers.

Once in the Church Rebecca’s bubbly personality started to shine through with her infectious smile and loving gaze the whole ceremony was a delight. Even when Rebecca couldn’t hold back the emotions any longer Glenn calmly wiped the tears from Rebecca’s cheek with a tenderness apparent to all.

After the 25 minutes of group shots we had a 30 mile trip to Wansford. We were working to a tight schedule to make sure we could get all of the shots without impacting on Rebecca & Glenn’s day too much and before we could catch our breath we were photographing the evenings partying at 10.00 pm on the dance floor.

Congratulations to Rebecca & Glenn. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves photographing your big day, looking forward to finishing the design of your albums artwork, its going to be stunning!!! Here are a few of your best bits, enjoy …..

Cambridgeshire Pre-wedding photo shoot at The Haycock Hotel

On Monday we met with Charlotte & Iain at the Haycock Hotel for their Pre-wedding Engagement photo shoot. We would have normally planned this shoot 4 weeks ago, however, both Charlotte & Iain are in the Military and couldn’t make themselves available until now, just 3 days before their big day. The Haycock Hotel is a regular venue for us so we showed Charlotte & Iain around the area demonstrating how versatile this venue can be for photography. Clicking and chatting as we explored, the hour flew by with both of them amazed at how relaxed and fun the session was. After a drink and a quick planning meeting we are all now thoroughly excited about Thursday, just hope the weather decides to be kind. Here are a few sample shots, well done Charlotte & Iain ….

Engagement Shoot at Haycock Hotel - Rebecca & Glenn

A couple of weeks ago we met up with Rebecca and Glenn at the Haycock Hotel in Wansford, nr Peterborough. Rebecca & Glenn are getting married at their local church in Aslackby and then travelling to the Haycock Hotel for their wedding breakfast and to party the night away. So when we were discussing where to go for the Engagement Shoot the Haycock Hotel seemed the obvious choice with its walled gardens, a cricket green and field beyond which runs the Nene river. This is a lovely area offering more than ample opportunities for wedding photography with trees, water and walls, and for the more contemporary shots a bright green cricket pavilion.

A gentle stroll along the river, with me clicking as we go, soon allowed Rebecca & Glenn to relax into the shoot, and dare we say it, actually have fun. The key to good wedding photography (in our opinion) is getting the couple to relax, not over-pose every situation, and allow the camera to tell the story and capture those lovely relaxed and intimate moments. Needless to say after seeing the photos Rebecca Glenn both loved them, fully understanding why we have this session prior to the big day. Rebecca emailed to say:

Hello Andrew, hope your well.. I just wanted to say on behalf of Glenn and I that we love the engagement photos, we are very much looking forward to the wedding day and not so nervous now :)

Here are a few select shots of the hour session, can’t wait until their big day in April.
