The Maltings Weddings – Pauline and Dan

Pauline and Dan’s super-sunny day at St Mary’s Church and The Maltings, Ely

B eing British, the weather is always a topic of interest and as a wedding photographer, it often dictates how I approach a job, making it all the more relevant to me. Considering the infamously damp summer we endured, Pauline and Dan were one of this year’s lucky couples – after a week of unpredictable weather, the sun shined all day, making their wedding one of the hottest and brightest I’ve worked all year.

The day started at their home, where Pauline and her wedding party were busily getting prepared. I’ve rarely seen a more efficient yet relaxed hair and make-up session; Pauline’s living room was temporarily transformed into a bona fide beauty parlor, with ‘beauty stations’ set up in different corners of the room. Everything was remarkably calm; I got the feeling that Pauline was stunned at how smoothly everything was going.

This laid back start set the tone for the rest of their day. The couple were married at St Mary’s Church in Ely. This is a delightful location, built next door to a historic building that was famously the home of Oliver Cromwell. As the guests and groom arrived it was fun catching some of the excitement and anticipation.

Pauline arrived in a suitably glamorous car and looked stunning as she entered the church. The ceremony went near perfectly – a minor slip in the vows only added to the occasion and as the couple walked out of the church their happy faces told the story for them

Their wedding reception was at The Maltings, a riverside location that is also in Ely. Again it’s a lovely spot, right on the bank of the river, and it made for a lovely hour or so as the couple mingled with family and friends in the sun, before going in to enjoy the wedding breakfast itself.

I’d like to say thanks to Pauline and Dan for the chance to be a small part of their day. Congratulations to both of you again, I’m sure you’ll have a long and happy marriage!
