A White Wedding at The Old Hall Ely
Jakhya + Shaun
Why have one wedding when you can have two? Jakhya and Shaun had the most beautiful Bengali Wedding at The Old Hall Ely. I often talk to couples planning a fusion wedding between different cultures. This lovely couple took it one step further and booked two whole weddings. To comply with social distancing regulations, there were 15 guests for both of their weddings and it was lovely to get to know their family and friends.
The Old Hall Ely looking spectacular
As I arrived back at The Old Hall in Ely the sun was shining. It was, without doubt, the perfect day to be a Cambridgeshire Wedding Videographer and I was so excited about the day. A quick walk around to capture some venue shots then it was time to head back in for bridal prep. Jakyha was already having her hair done and there was already plenty of laughter flowing.
I headed over to the other side of the hall to capture Shaun getting ready. You could already feel the nerves in Shaun. It wasn’t long before it was time for him to make his way down to the pavilion in the gardens.
Intimate Wedding Ceremony
As Jakyha made her way down the aisle towards Shaun you could feel the emotion. The wedding guests spread amongst the benches were really caught up in the moment. The most magical ceremony followed with some beautiful wedding vows and intimate moments.
One of the things you can always rely on at The Old Hall in Ely is the food. The 15 guests sat down to a stunning meal. Once the food was finish it was time for the speeches. Six emotional speeches followed, including both Bride and Groom. I have to confess I always find it so special when both the bride and groom make a speech. It always makes for magical audio for your wedding film. I won’t make any apologies for it making it’s way into the highlights of the day.
These guys were just so lucky! Every couple hopes for some epic light on their wedding day. Jakhya and Shaun had it twice! Wow, every single wedding I have done so far at The Old Hall in Ely has either had the most epic sunset or incredible golden hour. This day was no different. The guys smashed it again as we made our way around the lakes.
In our prewedding meeting, we had talked about making sure both wedding films had a different vibe. For the Bengali wedding, we went for a very epic and romantic feel. For the white wedding, it was all about the fun. Enter Shaun picking up and spinning Jakyha around! So much fun!
These two were just amazing and it was a real pleasure to be a part of their weddings. I hope you enjoy their highlights wedding film. It was without doubt one of the highlights of 2020!
