It was wonderful to be back at @theoldhall in Ely at the end of July, our first time back since before the first lockdown! We couldn’t resist taking a few snaps of the outdoor ceremony area and grounds – just beautiful!

However, today was not one of those days. We had the pleasure of returning to Brookfield Barn to play at – what we would call – a perfect summer wedding.
