Claire and Iain’s Clandon Park wedding

Happy new year, my first post during 2012 so I’m only a few days late in wishing that ;). Anyway at the end of last year Claire and Iain got married at the magnificent Clandon Park near Guildford. It started the day snowing, but by the afternoon in had turned into one of those fantastic, clear, December days that are fantastically beautiful, but it was mighty cold.

Claire organised this whole wedding in just 6 months from Iain proposing. I think getting a wedding like this organised in that time is seriously impressive going.

I first met Iain when I had a sensible job, so I was really pleased to be asked to photograph his and Claire’s wedding. For a bit of a change for this year’s weddings I’m going to say a little about each photo. Please do comment if you like the idea. Enjoy.


One of the best things about photographing weddings is you meet many fantastic people. All the cards over Claire and Iain’s home spoke volumes as to the regard people hold them in

Clandon Park is stunning. Black tie certainly does it justice

Details like this don’t just happen – theres some serious planning gone into this

The Marble Room at Clandon is magnificent. Just the sort of place you’ve expect to find a string quartet 😉

I’d love to know what they’re talking about

Classic cars, it was the only way for a venue quite this classy. Anyway I’m terrible with cars, anyone know what it is?
