Cumberland Lodge is a gorgeous venue in the heart of Windsor Great Park in Berkshire. The history of the lodge is fascinating, having been a royal residence in the past and now an educational charity. With such a pedigree, I was certainly looking forward to being the Cumberland Lodge wedding photographer for M & R’s special day! I had met them about 18 months before and was glad when their wedding day arrived. A lovely, candid and friendly couple at first impression. They were really relaxed on the day and really seem to enjoy every moment as the images below show!
My day started at the bride’s house documenting a few moments of the getting ready before heading off to the church for a few shots of the groom and the guests arriving. It was a lovely church with a friendly priest and the ceremony was beautiful. There were signs of anticipation before the bride arrived but no stress, everyone was happy and relaxed. The ceremony was lovely and their was some beautiful singing from family and friends at the church. After the service, the bride and groom left for Windsor Great Park where we stopped off for a few portraits.
After a few portraits, we arrived at the venue where guests were mingling and enjoying drinks and canapés. It was still nice and warm but the wind had picked up a little bit. The bride and groom decided, after a confetti throw and bouquet toss, to adjourn inside for speeches. Speeches are often after the meal, but more and more couples choose to have speeches before as it allows speakers to relax during the meal. it was a beautiful room for the speeches with some lovely light! After the speeches, everyone was invited next door for a lovely sit down meal. After the meal, we took some time to do a short portrait session at the venue, just in time before it started raining. M & R were so happy that it was really easy to make some nice and effortless pictures. After this, it was time for the first dance!
Below is a set of my favourite images from their wedding day, I really hope that you like them! It was a real pleasure to work with this lovely couple and at this historic wedding venue. If you are getting married soon and you are looking for a Cumberland lodge wedding photographer (or any other venue for that matter) I would love to hear from you!
