Fulbourn Barn Wedding Cambridge – Nigel & Tash

Fulbourn Barn Wedding Cambridge, Nigel and Natasha, 24th September 2016.

Nigel and Tash’s wedding was quite the extravaganza. It was one of the busier weddings I’ve shot, with 100 day guests and a further 100 evening guests. This gave us a lot to photograph! The day kicked off as it meant to go on, with Tash and her bridesmaids a hive of frenetic activity. They all wore matching kimonos and each had a personalised coat hanger for their dresses, which was a nice touch. Nigel had very sweetly left Tash a gift to open in the morning, and tears had to be fought back, mostly so that the make-up wasn’t spoiled!

Meanwhile, the guys were getting ready in the best possible place – the pub. A couple of drinks were had to ease nerves and off they went to get the church ready for the service. The ceremony was beautiful, with Nigel and Tash choosing old primary school songs to sing as well as hymns (One more step along the world I go, anyone?).

After the ceremony, the congregation made their way to Fulbourn Barns for the reception. Of course, if you are going to invite 200 people to your wedding you better have a giant venue. And this barn was massive. Nigel and Tash managed to decorate the whole place, with lots of interesting tidbits dotted around the barn. There were old photos, quizzes, balloons, a photo booth, fairy lights and sweet stalls. A delicious punch was served as the guests arrived. Just before dinner, we had the logistical challenge of corralling a hundred people outside for the group photo. Fortunately the wind died down long enough for us to catch a photo without Tash’s veil blowing all over the place!

After the group shot, the congregation sat down for dinner. The speeches were very enjoyable, especially Nigel’s, who gave an emotional tribute to his father. Tash also cracked the cheesiest joke imaginable, with the punch line literally being ‘Nacho cheese!’ You can probably guess the rest.

The plates were taken away and the partying commenced. We were treated to lots of live music, including a rock band that blew the place away, and a friend of Nigel’s coming on to play a DJ set. Dancing went on long into the night, until approximately 2 in the morning, although I have to admit we didn’t quite stay that late!

Nigel and Tash’s wedding was a feast for the senses, and we left feeling like we were a part of something really special. So congratulations to both of you, and thank you for asking us to shoot your wedding!

Urbex UK – Time for a Bit o’ Dereliction part IV

Urbex UK 68Urbex UK – Looking dusty, 2016. 

For those of you that have followed my work over the last few years (I’m sure there is at least one of you out there), you will know that I have been quite keen on photographing buildings in advanced states of decay, also known as Urbex (Urban Exploration). You can check out my previous attempts on my Facebook profile. And this is why I have titled this post part four and not because I can’t count for toffee.

This latest discovery is a former breeze block factory at a location I have been sworn to secrecy over. This place is by far the most interesting of all the urbex spots I have encountered so far. This includes a disused grain factory, a former barracks (with tanks) and a burnt out house in Shelford, so this factory is in esteemed derelict company.

It is also by far the largest site I’ve photographed, and required multiple visits to get around and document properly. Taking each derelict building increasingly seriously is also something I have noticed in myself – perhaps because they don’t come along very often.

This factory really felt frozen in time. It would make an excellent zombie movie location. There are calendars with dates from over 10 years ago. There are lots of gratuitous pictures of naked women pinned up on the wall, all dog eared and covered in dust. The are containers of food and drink with inevitably rotten contents inside. The building is not adequately sealed, therefore lots of mould covers the ceilings. People have come and stripped copper and left rubber sheathing all over the place. Teenagers have come and simply trashed parts of the factory. Amusing graffiti remains from when the place was a functioning place of employment. Plants, mostly buddleia, have begun the long-game process of reclaiming their land. All of this contributes to the place being fascinating to photograph.

And to whoever put a load of dead pigeons in the chest freezer… you are one sick individual and need help immediately. Serves me right for being a nosey so-and-so!
