Laura Ashley Hotel Wedding, Hertfordshire
Laura has the BEST expressions. Fact. Mostly glee and joy and “OMG I can’t believe this is finally happening!” And Jack, despite saying he’d be nervous with a camera on him, couldn’t stop grinning all day. I love how excited these two were to be getting married!
Laura and Jack booked me absolute ages ago, so far back, in fact, that I didn’t even have any 2016 weddings booked yet, let alone any others for 2017! However, I totally appreciate the fact that they knew what they wanted and sorted it all out as soon as they decided! It was such a wonderful day and we all had so much fun. I’m all about my couples having heaps of fun on their wedding day! It’s literally all I want. 🙂
I’ve photographed a few weddings at the Laura Ashley Hotel Wedding and conference venue in Elmstree near Borehamwood before, and it’s lovely there. (See Jodie & Chris’ mod 60s wedding and Julie & Rich’s rainy one) Tons of natural light in the ceremony and reception rooms, and a gorgeous big garden for photos! (And a field for me to make my couples wander into). This day was warm and sunny, but away from the building it was windy as all get out, and Laura’s veil went absolutely crazy (and I went absolutely crazy for how pretty it looked!). So thank you, Laura, for putting up with me making you stand in the wind!
Every single person at Laura and Jack’s wedding was full of smiles all day, and between their excitement and a plethora of gorgeous tiny babies (the best man’s new daughter was only a week old!), as well as children having a whale of a time, I was in my element! Thanks to my fabulous second shooter, Natalie, for coming along with me and taking such fantastic photos. Some of the below are hers!
