Summer Marquee Wedding

A Summer Marquee Wedding

Some weddings are quintessentially English, and this summer marquee wedding was one of them. Camilla and Nick met at work in the English capital, London, and came back to the family seat in Hertfordshire for their wedding. This was perfect for me as a Hertfordshire wedding photographer. There was an ancient wedding ceremony in a Victorian church complete with stained glass and a fine organ, a Roll Royce to ferry Camilla and her Dad from home, then Camilla and her new husband back home. Camilla and Nick’s summer marquee wedding was in the family home garden, under an English summer blue sky complete with fluffy white clouds. The gentlemen were dressed in morning suits, complete with top hats and tails, and the ladies wore summer dresses of pale colours and floral designs, with large hats. The flowers were, of course, roses.

Why a summer marquee wedding is so special

Even the summer drink is English – Pimms. To quote Wikipedia, “Pimm, a farmer’s son from Kent, became the owner of an oyster bar in the City of London, near the Bank of England. He offered the tonic (a gin-based drink containing a secret mixture of herbs and liqueurs) as an aid to digestion, serving it in a small tankard known as a “No. 1 Cup”, hence its subsequent name. Pimm’s began large-scale production in 1851 to keep up with sales to other bars. The distillery began selling it commercially in 1859.”

And of course underlying all of this is a strong sense of history, tradition, loyalty and family love. And that strong family love was very much in evidence throughout this most excellent day.

Here is Camilla and Nick’s wedding day story.
