Superb winters day for this Hunton Park wedding. Deep blue skies and a crisp morning as I made my way to meet Emma. The house was full of energy and fun as I arrived for the bridal preparation. Lots of laughter and perhaps a few nerves but great for image capture.
St Paul’s Church is located in Ruislip Manor where James and the groomsmen were ready. In fact the whole of the church was already packed and ready to go. Befitting the groom’s occupation there was a surprise car for him. A vintage 1963 Jaguar police car – a stunning automobile.
With a keen wind flowing down the street the bridesmaids arrived and braved the elements until the star of the show arrived. Always love this moment to capture the flow into the church and the nervous anticipation in the air.
Positioned at the front of the church I was able to see all of the entrance and the reaction on the face of James. A beautiful ceremony followed in this stunning church. The vicar kindly gave me complete freedom to discreetly move and capture the full story.
On exit the newlyweds were congratulated and covered in confetti before heading off for the Hunton Park wedding reception. What a stunning location for this classic hotel and we soon made good use of the grounds for some lovely private moments. With the sun going down in the golden hour, extraordinary light and shadows added some real drama to the images.
The scene was set for the wedding breakfast in the marquee. Emma’s creative thoughts were perfectly translated into a beautiful winter woodland theme. So onto drinks, fabulous cuisine and the beginnings of a wonderful party. Lots of candid, fun moments to capture plus some tears and real heartfelt moments for the speeches.
Finally the cake was cut and the newlyweds hit the dancefloor to round off this wonderful wedding.
