When I previewed Abenet & Toby's wedding at Great Wilbraham Hall on my blog, I mentioned the sad news that the old barn at the hall had burned down just a week earlier.

I first met Abenet & Toby at Sarah & Adam's wedding at Gonville & Caius College in Cambridge and I was delighted to be invited to photograph their wedding. Here's a selection of my favourite photos from their outdoor wedding ceremony at Great Wilbraham Hall.
