Two for the price of one today in the epic Christmas blogathon. In case you missed it, I am sharing photos from my friends Cat & Wayne’s beautiful autumn wedding at Trafalgar Park in Salisbury. We’ve already done preparations and the church ceremony and now for some portraits around the grounds and the stunning Cipriani room.
Now is a good time to say a big thanks to Tarah Coonan who assisted me at this wedding and took some brilliant photos. Reminded me I need to use my heavy 70-200mm lens more often.
Look out for the final installment of photos from the Reception at the weekend.

Happy Christmas everyone, especially all my bride’s and grooms from 2011. Big love especially to two special friends who got married in November, Cat & Wayne, who are currently travelling around Asia on a massive 6 month honeymoon. Over the festive period I am sharing some extended blog posts of their wedding photos so they can relive the memories while they are away.
So lets go back to November, to Trafalgar Park, a manor house on the outskirts of Salisbury. This is straight in there as one of my favourite wedding venues, from the first sight across the long sheep-laden lawn, to the jaw dropping entrance hall and stunning historic interiors. We also refer to it as ‘the zombie house’, where some of 28 Days Later was filmed. No machine gun posts, sandbags or zombies (hopefully) but just check out that baroque entrance hall, and if architecture’s not your thing, Irregular Choice wedding shoes anyone?
Trafalgar Park is a private house and they were so good allowing use of most of the house, from the bridal preparations upstairs to the various rooms being set up for the reception later that day. The boys appeared briefly, dropping off some bits and bobs and Wayne opened up a gift from his bride, an antique pocket watch.
Bridesmaid Lolly is the singer in metal band Apnia with Wayne and best men Scott & Ryan, but she can turn her amazing voice to all sorts of music, and she was joined by Cat’s sister Vicky as they practised for their performance in church later. It was beautiful hearing their singing echoing through the corridors of the house. Cat received some earrings from her groom- Wayne, this is what she thought of them…
Working as a wedding photographer I feel very privileged to be part of the special moments, and this is especially true when photographing my friends. Everyone who knows Cat, knows her to be bubbly, confident, and smiley so I love this set of photos as she got into her dress and the nerves really began to set in.
In true Cat style, things were running a little late, and we rushed off to St Osmond’s Catholic church in Salisbury for the ceremony.
If you want to see what happened next come back Tuesday 28th December…
Back in November my good friends Cat & Wayne got married. Since then they’ve set off on a 6 month honeymoon travelling around Asia. I’ve had the less exciting task of wading through the thousands of photos, both sensible and not so, that got taken on that fun and beautiful day. Over Christmas while they have an internet connection, I’ve set up some extended blog posts so they can relive the day. Happy Christmas Mr & Mrs Envis!
First up the Wedding Photobooth, which we set up during the evening reception at Trafalgar Park, Salisbury. Big up to Tarah Coonan who ran the photobooth that evening, and put up with us lot being silly.
I’ve had an amazing weekend at my friend’s Cat & Wayne’s beautiful wedding at Trafalgar Park in Salisbury. Its about time I posted a sneak preview, but so hard to choose! It was a real privilege to be so closely involved in their day, and share their happiness. I feel like this one kind of sums that up- Just me and the priest saw it from this way round- the moment they were declared man and wife. Congratulations Mr and Mrs Envis!
More soon from the stunning venue at Trafalgar Park, the vintage travel theme, and the fun photobooth…
