I was delighted to get my first booking at Hampton Court House, it’s such a lovely venue and to share it with Cynthia and Adrian was an absolute pleasure as they are such a lovely couple and a joy to work with. After our initial meeting I had a good look around the venue to familiarise myself with all the best locations for photography come rain or shine. The wedding day started with capturing some subtle getting ready shots, flipping between the bride in the old library and the groom in a a classroom at the other side the house. The ceremony was beautiful, it’s such a nice room to get married in, with Bushy Park in full view in front of you as you say your vows. The weather held perfectly for some candid and softly directed photographs of them both in and around the house. We also went to the little shell grotto. Despite being a little reserved about how the shots might turn out in there, having some off camera flash and shooting them form one side of the room worked really well. The reminder of the day was spent capturing lots of natural shots during the drinks reception and wedding breakfast, then the first dance before I departed. Here is a small selection from their image library, hope you like my blend of natural and creative photographs.
