Beaumont Estate Wedding Photography // Naomi & Andrew
As the first wedding of the year, Naomi and Andrew’s elegant Windsor wedding at De Vere Beaumont Estate presented the perfect setting for me to reconnect with what documentary wedding photography is all about; being true to the story of the day. It’s what I specialise in! My kind of wedding photography really comes into its own at outstanding venues like De Vere Beaumont Estate. With high ceilings and huge Georgian windows, this Windsor wedding venue has 40 acres of perfectly manicured parkland and a gorgeous 18th-centuary Georgian House. Not a bad backdrop!
For this shoot, the fab Andie Moore was my second photographer. It’s always great to photograph weddings with my partner (who is also a pro photographer in her own right) as it allows us to fully capture the big day from every angle as it unfolds naturally, ensuring we don’t miss a thing for our discerning clients. It’s well worth investing in 2 photographers if you can, especially if you want both bride and groom ‘getting ready’ shots and plenty of other priceless moments captured throughout the day.
After an intimate wedding ceremony, (which included some choreographed dance moves by Andrew and his best men before the bride entered!) the late afternoon sunlight called us out onto the sprawling lawns of the estate to capture a few precious portraits with our newly-wed couple. Naomi’s dress, with long flowing lines and intricate lacework, really complimented the grandeur of Beaumont Estate against the white Georgian architecture.
The 19th-centuary chapel was an amazing event space for the happy couple’s wedding reception, with crisp white wedding tables laid out beautifully beneath the jaw-dropping stained-glass Rose window. A very cool place for a party.
As Naomi and Andrew danced the night away with their closest friends and family, we were able to get some great shots of everyone having a laugh on the dance floor and also in the photo booth larking about with lots of crazy props and hats – such a fun way to bring a sense of silliness to a sophisticated and stylish wedding. The guests loved it!
