I am writing from Claydon House and we are just putting together our new wedding brochure and I remember that you took some lovely photos of Mary and Adam here in July this year and I wondered if I could use some of the images in the brochure. I have added you to our recommended suppliers list. I have already spoken to Mary and Adam and they are happy for me to use their photographs.
The photos are fantastic, terrific, great!!! THANK YOU
Mary and Adam chose the delightful National Trust property Claydon House Middle Claydon Buckinghamshire for their wedding ceremony and reception.
Claydon House is situated midway between the towns of Buckingham Aylesbury and Bicester among some lovely countryside.
The day started with some posed photos at the nearby family cottage. The cottage has its own windmill - how about that! Naturally we absolutely had to feature the windmill in some of the photos!
Then on to Claydon House itself. National Trust properties always have more rules than private country house hotels regarding what you can and cannot do but there was nothing too onerous. Well I guess it would have been nice to have some photos on the ornate staircase but thats not allowed; however there are some nice shots to be had if couples care to pose at the base of the staircase.
The registrars who are responsible for Claydon House are very easy going and there are no silly restrictions on photography during the actual marriage ceremony - just be sensible and considerate thats all!
There is very little natural shade around the terrace so professional photographers will have to hunt out suitable spots for the all important family and couple posed photographs if the light conditions are harsh. Fortunately we had a little high cloud develop at this point on Mary and Adams' day giving just enough diffusion to obtain decent results.
Mary and Adams' photographic coverage ended mid-evening when they departed with some guests for a local hotel. Claydon House itself closes quite early at around 8pm.
