Who wants to see some wedding photography at Notley Abbey? Yes I hear you cry! Well good for you and look no further. You’ve come to the right place people….
Because this is the wedding of Stewart and Robyn and thats the venue they chose. It’s nice. It’s very nice. It’s bloomin’ lovely. When these two lovely people came to me and told me they were looking for a specialist documentary wedding photographer, I was over the moon. I’d sort of met them before you see, at their friends wedding. Sarah and Mark got hitched in 2016 and Stewart had the honour of being and usher on their day. I in turn, had the honour of Sarah and Mark recommending me! The rest they say is history…
Speaking of history, Notley was founded in between 1154 and 1164 by the second Earl of Buckingham. Despite its lack of historical fame, it was one of the largest and richest Augustinian monasteries in the Oxford region. There’s your blog post history lesson. You know I like to drop the history knowledge on you when I can. Boom. There you go. Thanks Google.
So, I was on debut having not been to Notley before. I’d wanted to shoot there for a while. Like I said earlier, it didn’t disappoint me. Robyn, Stewart and their guests spent the whole day there – prep in the morning, ceremony, and onwards. I really loved shooting the ceremony. The room offers some wonderful light and the wedding breakfast hall is just lovely. Exposed stone and beautiful beams. You get the picture….
