Quite a day for Hedsor wedding photography at this stunning location. It was cold and grey but this turned out to be the most warm and colourful of weddings.
Victoria and Stefan created a rich tapestry to experience and a joy to photograph. The bride was dressed to kill as I arrived and elegance personified. We spent this time just capturing her lovely family and friends and generally having fun! The floral layout for the ceremony was an absolute masterpiece and wowed all the guests as they arrived. Stefan was in great spirits and greeted everyone.
With the ceremony room packed I made my way upstairs for the start of the long walk by bride and father. Always love this time for capturing the nervous energy and the grace of it all. Quickly I positioned myself near the registrar and those all important first few moments of a dramatic entrance and first glance. A beautiful ceremony followed and many natural images were taken.
The newlyweds exited to loud applause and headed outside.With the light fading some essential family shots were squeezed in prior to some private moments in the grounds.
The drinks reception was in full swing and a lovely party took over. On entrance to the wedding breakfast the guests realised they each had a funny face beer mat. This accelerated the atmosphere and the ensuing selfies… Caper and Berry provided sumptuous cuisine plus the wine to create the wonderful atmosphere. Such a great time for candid and fun photography. Onto some speeches with real emotion and sincere thoughts.
Victoria and Stefan escaped upstairs and we created some intimate images with the spectacular backdrop enhanced by extraordinary lighting.
Finally the cake cutting and the all important first dance but with a difference…. All the wedding party and guests danced the twist to the infamous Pulp Fiction track sung by Chuck Berry – brilliant! As the DJ mixed the grooves the tempo stepped up and allowed for Hedsor wedding photography with an alternative streak as the newlyweds partied hard into the night.
A really memorable day at this beautiful wedding.
