A Wedding at the George Hotel, Buckden

Louise and Marco booked me for their wedding at the George Hotel in Buckden, in large part because Louise had admired the tartan loungewear I was wearing during our call. She mentioned liking my photography too but I think the loungewear sealed the deal.

Anyway, you’re not here to learn about my tartan PJ’s (or are you?). Presumably, you’re here because you wanted to have a look at some wedding pictures. If you did come here wanting to see the tartan loungewear, you’ll have to get on a Skype call with me.

The day began with hair and makeup at the George Hotel. Louise and her sisters were in fine spirits as was Kerry, Louise’s make-up artist for the day. There was a real buzz in the air. A room full of excited bridesmaids and family all eager to help and build the excitement for the day ahead.

The wedding ceremony was held in the conservatory at the George. Louise was beaming as she made her way down the aisle ready to marry Marco.

After the ceremony, drinks were served and the wedding guests enjoyed some laid back jazz from the Blueprint Trio – highly recommended, they helped create a really great atmosphere.

We took some time to make portraits but just for a short while. This wedding was absolutely all about time with family and friends and enjoying the celebrations.

Nothing compares with his love for Louise but Marco does have a passion for the railways and the wedding breakfast was themed around the London Underground.

The speeches were fantastic and I got photos of some amazing expressions as the jokes were told.

Onto the evening, the Bride and Groom took to the dance-floor and spent their time enjoying the company of their friends and family into the small hours.

This was my first wedding at the George but glad to say, not my last. I took a booking for this venue just yesterday.

It’s an incredibly warm and welcoming wedding venue and I can’t wait to return.

I’d recommend it to anyone looking for a combination of impeccable service, fine food and good times. A day to remember -enjoy!
