West Lodge Park Wedding, Barnet, Hertfordshire
Oh my gosh. This wedding was so much FUN. And there’s nothing I have more fun doing than photographing a wedding where everyone is having fun! It’s just so great. Debi and Paul have such a great bunch of friends and family, who all spent the day enjoying themselves to the max. And Debi and Paul are just such lovely, happy people in love. Their ceremony was gorgeous and heartfelt, and the day was sunny (yay!), so after the ceremony everyone chilled out on the lawns while I took the newlyweds for some gorgeous couple portraits around the hotel grounds. Then it was back to the marquee for speeches and dinner, and then…there were SECRET SINGING WAITERS. You guys, this was the most fun thing I’ve seen at a wedding in probably forever. These three guys had been serving dinner and drinks all evening, and then suddenly, BAM! Bursting forth in song. They really got the crowd into it: napkins were waved, impromptu dances were danced, and lyrics were valiantly sung by surprised guests who had the microphone thrust in front of them. Seriously, I can’t recommend these guys enough. You can find them here. Hire them!
Thanks to my awesome 2nd Shooter, Lynda Laird, and to Debi and Paul for having such a damn cool wedding!
