Winchester College Christmas Wedding – Emily & Boon

It must be tricky organising a wedding from overseas but to create such a beautiful destination wedding in the UK from Malaysia takes some skill!  Emily and Boon did exactly that.

It helps when you align yourself with great people to collaborate with to bring everything together and create the best dream team (We humbly include ourselves in that dream team!) and the best winter wedding.  Special mention to Jenny Prosser who always does an amazing job with the flowers.

It all started with a young Boon who was lucky enough to be a pupil of Winchester College back in his school days.  The school is one of the most prestigious in Hampshire and for a VERY limited and lucky few people they open their doors to be able to host your wedding in this completely unique location – there really is nowhere quite like it.  Winchester itself is a very special place and tucked away in the heart of the city is this every old (600 years) school that Emily and Boon chose as their dream wedding location.

The schools moto is ‘manners makyth man’ and this couldn’t be more apt considering how the family and friends of emily & Boon made us feel so welcome.  People traveled form all over the globe to share in their special day and even Boon’s old science teacher was not only among the guest list but also held the blessing for them.  A highlight was when he presented a photo of a very young Boon at the front of the class learning chemistry many years ago.

Winter weddings are always very special for us.  We absolutely love the cosiness that they offer – there is something very welcoming about a winter wedding.  From our point of view it takes a bit more awareness of the timings of the day.  Because there is a short window of daylight we have to make sure that we make the most of it but in most cases and especially with E&B they appreciated the guidance. That trust certainly helped us to capture some gorgeous pictures.

Here you have a building that has been standing since 1382 – the steps are all crooked, the walls are uneven, the seats have been worn smooth by all the pupils that have passed through this school, but in that imperfection is all of it’s beauty.  We love looking for the beauty in imperfections and that is what we love about photographing people and photographing weddings.

2017 is almost full for wedding bookings and we’re taking bookings for 2018/19.  Contact us now to book an appointment HERE
