Alexandra & Simran – Same Sex Wedding Dorton House Buckinghamshire
I had been a year since I had taken a journey into London to photograph Alexandra & Simran’s official wedding. Now it was time for the official celebration wedding at Dorton House in Buckinghamshire!
There is a special reason why they chose Dorton House (or Ashfold School). Alexandra grew up in the grounds of the school, as her father was the head master for a number of years.
For the second time, it was such a joy to be their wedding photographer. They are full of life, love, and also keen on photography!
The ceremony was conducted by a Celebrant as Alexandra & Simran has of course already married official back in London. It felt so special. Kind words and song from guests were lovely for everyone to hear.
Many details were thought of through the wedding day. The table decorations were clean and contemporary, the food was absolutely delicious; provided by catering company Goose & Berry, and the cake was made by resident Ashford School chef Jacky, which was lavished in gold leaf and looked and tasted spectacular!
You could feel the closeness to my couple when we were walking around the grounds, and how at home they felt there, telling me stories from the past when we reached certain areas.
Then the evening entertainment arrived! A full blown ceilidh dance! Fun and fast moving, family and guests were ready for the gin bar laid on by the couple.
I then felt I wanted to end on a flourish. Alexandra & Simran had bought lots of sparklers, ready for an evening photograph! Gathering as many guests as possible, setting up the camera and timer, ready, set, GO! (See last image) :0)
