Amazing wedding at Babington House

It seems very apt that I’ve finally to round to blogging this gay wedding ceremony that took place at Babington House on the weekend where same-sex couples are finally able to have a gay marriage rather than just a civil partnership.

Jonathan and Ian had chosen to have their civil partnership Babington House and I must be honest I have struggled to come up with words to describe just how fantastic their day was and what a pleasure it was to be there to photograph their special day.  I had previously photographed Jonathan and Ian for their pre wedding shoot in London earlier in they year and had got some idea of the plans for the big day but actually being there to witness it was something else.

I arrived at Babington House at the same time as the florists arrived, when the roller on the back of the florists van went up the huge range of magnificent flowers that faced me simply left me speechless, as you’ll be able to see in the following pictures the way in which the ceremony room was decorated was something else.  It goes to say that I loved photographing a wedding at Babington House and can not wait to go back there hopefully very soon, in the meantime take a look through the images and feel free to leave a comment.

At this point, with the civil partnership ceremony having taken place it’s fair to say Jonathan and Ian were looking forward to that first drink as a newlywed couple.Same sex wedding and gay wedding photography at Babington House (22)

When couples book me to be their wedding photographer I always suggest fitting in a little time where they can escape their wedding guests for a short while so we can go off and capture some portraits of just the two of them so they’ve got some special memories captured for when they’re looking back through their wedding photos.  There are so many great locations around Babington House that the biggest concern is not to take up too much time and keep them away from their guests for too long.  Just in case Jonathan and Ian decided to take a little refreshment with them along the way.

I loved this wall in the Library at Babington House and just had to use it as a backdrop for a portrait.

Being able to photograph the speeches at a wedding is another favourite time for me as you usually get to see a whole range of emotions.

Joanthan and Ian had seen pianist Carl Joseph performing at V festival and booked him to entertain their guests into the evening and he most certainly did.  I’ll leave you with this final image that truly sums up the evening.

  1. Great coverage Martin, with a very light and bright feel. Won’t it be great when we can just talk about weddings as being about two people in love and be gender neutral. Great stuff.
