If you’re looking for Wedding Photography Near Me, speak to The Two Photographers. Burghley House, one of the largest houses of the first Elizabethan Age was the setting for Hazy & Marc’s wedding. The house was built and mostly designed by William Cecil. The Lord High Treasurer to Queen Elizabeth I, between 1555 and 158was the setting for Hazy and Marc’s Civil Wedding. 160 guests traveled from as far afield as USA to celebrate the day with the happy couple.
The gardens and parkland that you see today at Burghley are largely designed by Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown in the 18th century. Today, sweeping vistas down to the spires of Stamford with the backdrop of the House create the perfect canvas for weddings.
Moreover, for their truly memorable wedding day, Burghley was used exclusively. The elegant rooms in this magnificent setting were made available from the ceremony and right through to late night partying.
After the ceremony and the formal shots were taken, firstly we took the newly married couple on a whistle stop photo shoot around the gardens and parkland finishing up at the impressive ‘Devils Staircase’. Secondly we even managed to capture the happy couple with the designer of the life size Tie-Fighter. The Tie-Fighter was commissioned by eBay to celebrate the release of the new Star Wars movie. Hazy & Marc are massive fans of the Star Wars franchise. Above all a must for these Sci-Fi fans! We had brought along a pair of lightsabers to add to the ambiance on the day.

After that we stayed with the bride and groom capturing the Wedding Breakfast. Then most importantly the speeches, cake cutting and the first dance. In the evening the guests rocked out with a 1950’s swing band in the Orangery restaurant. Above all, a beautiful end to a wonderful wedding.
