Magdalene College in Cambridge is one of Cambridge's older colleges, and has a rich history. It actually started out as a Benedictine hostel (trust me when I say I'm going somewhere with this...) which meant that when Tracy & Dominic asked their friend Father Christopher - himself a Benedictine monk - to officiate at their wedding they were going right back to Magdalene College's roots.
That's today's history lesson out of the way. Now for some photographs of Tracy & Dominic's wedding at the beautiful Magdalene College in Cambridge.
