Well.....it's not every day that you photograph a wedding in a Cathedral

In fact, it's not very often than ANYONE photographs a wedding at Worcester Cathedral as apparently they only hold about 4 or 5 each year!

That's probably because you first have to get written permission from the Archbishop of Canterbury, as you do :-)

In this case, the Bride used to be in the cathedral choir giving her the appropriate credentials to receive Bishopric approval and it was full steam ahead with planning the rest of the day

So....when your wedding ceremony is taking place at a building which dates back to the 11th century you need somewhere pretty special for the reception and boy did Philippa & Daniel do well!


Been to ancient worlds

I've scoured the whole universe

And caught the first train home

To be at her side

No matter where I roam

I will return to my english rose

For no bonds can ever keep me from she

Philippa's family have ties to the Worcestershire going back generations and she started her day in her childhood home with quite a houseful.

Parents, siblings, Bridesmaids, Flower Girls, Page Boys, Aunts, Uncles, it was a hive of activity and full of hustle and bustle

Then of course.... off the Church.....a very big Church!!!

It's no surprise to say that Worcester Cathedral is impressive, stunning is a good work to describe it. The Cathedral actually stays open to the public during the ceremony, but section used for the service is closed off from visitors.

Hearing Jerusalem sung in a church is always pretty stirring, hearing it sung by a choir adds gravitas, hearing it sung by the Worcester Cathedral choir IN the Cathedral is one of the most amazing things I've ever heard.

Simply incredible

A crowd had gathered during the ceremony to watch from across the barrier rope so by the time the Bride & Groom started the recessional it felt a little bit like a celebrity wedding!

After the ceremony, time to head out of Worcester towards the Worcestershire/Herefordshire border and the glorious Whitbourne Hall

It's built in the Palladian style and the first time I saw it I thought I was walking into a Jane Austen novel. With an Italian Parterre Garden and Adam style decor inside the house it's stunning, the perfect place for a country wedding reception

With the groom working in hospitality the food and drink was really important to him and the guests definitely weren't disappointed. Tasty canapes on the lawn and then inside for beef wellington and later on an amazing dessert buffet

Somehow during the planning the process the Bride also managed to find time for a photoshoot with Country Life magazine!
