I travel all over the UK and occasionally abroad to photograph weddings but I have to say there is something very nice about photographing a wedding in my home town and being able to walk to it. Higham Ferrers is an attractive small town in Northamptonshire with a lot of historic buildings dating back to the 14th century and a beautiful church. Clare and Jon married at St Mary’s church in Higham Ferrers and had their reception at Glebe Farm in Higham Ferrers.
I caught up with Jon having a pre wedding drink with his family at The Carriage House pub and then went to photograph Clare’s final preparations at her parents house. It was then a short trip back to St Mary’s for the wedding ceremony. After the ceremony the guests were transported to nearby Glebe farm by bus for the wedding reception in a marquee. Clare and Jon took an evening walk for a few minutes together and this made for some good photographs in the beautiful evening light.
