It’s fantastic to receive thanks for the Wedding Photography service that I provide. But it’s so much more than a service, it’s a real pleasure to capture a couple’s most treasured moment.
Wedding photography wherever the venue, fills me with pride and a sense of duty. The photographs have to be perfect, not only must I capture the bride and groom looking their very best, but the wedding venue needs to stand out within the photographs as a place that the couple will remember forever.
Wedding photography for Stephen and Jenny was one such occasion. The wedding took place at Whittlebury Hall in Northamptonshire, where Jenny and Stephen were a genuine delight to work for and photograph.
Here is their story as published in The Wedding Planner, I’d like to thank them again for the kind words expressed in the article.
Stephen & Jenny
Married on the 29th December 2018 this was a wedding with a Christmas feel
As we married at the end of December, we did have some Christmassy touches. In fact, not only did we ask Whittlebury Park, our venue, if we could keep the Christmas trees but whether they could add more lights! We wanted a warm, romantic look with lots of twinkly lights and candles.
For the tables we used ornate candelabras as the centrepieces with mini Christmas crackers and personalised chocolates for each guest.
Our four-tier cake was special as it had a sparkly glitter tier.
My Dad and Steve’s Mum have passed away, in remembrance of them we had their initials on a candle which burned throughout the day.
Also, I had a charm with a picture of my dad, Ron, on my bouquet so he could still walk down the aisle with me.
Before the first dance we asked everyone to come outside for some photos with sparklers but really, we wanted to surprise them with a firework display by Halo FX – it was a huge hit with guests exclaiming it was better than some organised events. We finished with the sparkler photos which just added more romance and twinkly lights!
We love live music, so we felt the day needed a band. ‘Jukebox’ performed an acoustic set during the day, a chilled classic set through the drinks reception then livened up with covers across the decades; everything from Jackie Wilson to The Killers – they were brilliant.
Our photographer, Arif Gardner from AG Studios, was excellent. He put everyone at ease and was so happy he really got into the spirit of the day. He captured our day beautifully.
In a future article I will be giving you my experience as a Wedding Photographer, talking about the best venues for wedding photography in Hertfordshire and St Albans.
