Our Experience as Wedding Photographers at Shortmead House, Biggleswade


As a husband-and-wife team passionate about wedding photography, we recently had the privilege of capturing a stunning wedding at Shortmead House in Biggleswade.


Nestled in the heart of Bedfordshire, Shortmead House provided the idyllic setting for a summer wedding we recently had the joy of photographing. This 18th-century manor, with its blend of historical elegance and contemporary charm, was the perfect backdrop for our latest venture into wedding photography. My wife and I, as a duo of passionate wedding photographers, were thrilled to capture the love and festivities of a day that was as radiant as the summer sun. Today, I’m excited to share our experiences, highlighting the unique charm of Shortmead House, including its stunning outdoor swimming pool, which played a central role in the day’s celebrations.


One of the advantages of choosing a combined wedding photography and videography package is the seamless coordination between two professionals who work harmoniously together. Our teamwork allowed us to capture complementary angles and perspectives, resulting in a comprehensive visual story of the wedding day.
