Granny Mollie’s Fish Pie and Other Wedding Tales

By Claire

I’m back with another wedding story for all you lovers of documentary wedding photography out there – brought to you by English Wedding sponsor Martin Beddall. This wedding day at Clandon Park in Surrey is simply lovely: a beautiful bride and her handsome groom marrying in an early eighteenth century manor house in the Surrey countryside.

Who says a wedding day told in pictures isn’t as rich a story, as inspiring as all those gorgeous details we’re used to seeing on wedding blogs? Katy and Paul’s wedding day is full of its own little tales: Granny Mollie’s Fish Pie is an intriguing name from their wedding table plan. The venue they chose for their wedding has a fascinating history. There are smiles and laughter here, surprises and quiet moments, as the tale of their wedding day unfolds through your eyes and the lens of documentary wedding photographer Martin Beddall. Take a minute, scroll down a little and enjoy the journey:

Clandon Park is a wedding venue with a rich history: home to lords and ladies including three Speakers of the House of Commons, it has a M?ori meeting house in the gardens. This was originally situated near Lake Tarawera in New Zealand and provided shelter to the people of Te Wairoa village during the eruption of Mount Tarawera in 1886. The building was covered in ash and surrounded by volcanic debris, but its occupants survived. It remained half buried until 1892 when Lord Onslow, then Governor General of New Zealand, had it removed and shipped to England. (source: wikipedia)
