Manor by the Lake wedding – Chi and Yijing

Being a hampshire wedding photographer I shoot the majority of weddings in Hampshire and the surrounding counties however occasionally I get to photograph further afield and this Manor by the Lake wedding in Gloucestershire was an absolute cracker.

A recommendation from the best man, who I used to work with at Northern Ballet, put me in a position of trust with the Bride and Groom. Chi and Yijing, both professional dancers with Birmingham Royal Ballet are absolutely lovely and we clicked instantly.  The beauty of the couple and elegant oriental styling at this incredible venue made for a wedding recipe not to be missed.

The couple also considered hiring world-renowned wedding photographer Ross Harvey to photograph their wedding however when they saw my work and style of photography, as well as my background in dance , they opted for me instead. I felt very humbled when I found this out on the wedding day and aimed not to disappoint, motivated by their shared charm and natural chemistry. This opportunity allowed me to showcase my special blend of wedding and dance photography.

It was also a pleasure to photograph alongside Mr and Mrs productions on the day, a husband and wife videography team based in Gloucestershire.

Yijing had three wedding dresses for the day all purchased from her native China and all completely different. The first had an amazingly long train with lots of bling and sparkle, the second was a shorter dress and the third was a stunning Chinese red satin dress, which was worn throughout the evening. A beautiful set of photographs in the Bridal suite, followed by variations throughout the day in a range of settings, which made for a kaleidoscope of images to remember.

The best man’s speech drew a tear of raw emotion from the Groom, and the first dance with Yijing saw a tear rolling gently down her cheek as she danced with her new husband. These were two of the stand out fleeting moments from the couples day.

There are some amazing night time photographs to sign off Chi and Yijing’s collection of unique photographs from this beautiful Manor by the Lake wedding.
