French Style At Cain Manor
Self-confessed Anglophiles Amandine and Julien, chose Cain Manor in Hampshire for their autumn wedding and were joined by close family and friends for what was a very special and emotional day. The couple were drawn to Cain Manor by its oak beams, it’s open fire, and it’s traditional English architecture that they felt their international guests would appreciate. Cain Manor is in fact an Elizabethan building built in the late 16th century in the parish of Headley in Hampshire. It’s a wonderfully warm and inviting space that I’ve had the pleasure of photographing many times as one of their recommended photographers.
One of the things I enjoy most about photographing at Cain Manor is that both bride and groom are able to get ready in different parts of the venue. This really suits my documentary storytelling approach to the photography, as I’m able to dart between the two of them, as well as capturing those little incidental moments as guests start to arrive in anticipation of the ceremony. Amandine and Julien’s day, although small in number, was nevertheless filled with emotional moments and a dream to photograph.
