Sean and Chelsea both got ready at Fanhams Hall, when I arrived Chelsea and the girls were busy getting ready, drinking Prosecco and having a nice chilled morning. I could tell straight away they were in high spirits and very excited for the day ahead! Sean and the boys was the same but a bit more action packed! Fanhams Hall do have table tennis and football tables and they make for a great photo opportunity. The boys were enjoying their drinks and helping each other tie their ties! As soon as they were ready they put on their jackets and strolled over to the London Route-master bus to join the guests for the journey to the Church.
I then went back into the room and took some photos of Chelsea getting into her dress and then used the huge windows and took a fantastic picture of her, she looked absolutely stunning. Sam from Beautiful You touched up the make up & then dad walked in. After a beautiful picture with her dad in the window it was time for the veil to go in, the perfume to be sprayed and the garter to go on, and then it was time to go and get married!
All Saints Church is a stunning church in the the centre of Hertford with amazing views out over the Town. It was lightly raining so the groomsmen walked people from the bus into the church with umbrellas then it was time for the bride to arrive. Chelsea arrived in a cream London Taxi with her mum and dad. They both walked her down the aisle together, arm in arm. The service was beautifully conducted by Jo Loveridge and assisted by very close friend of the family Catherine.
After the wedding I took a few photos in the Church which was a stunning backdrop. Everyone then got back into the bus and had a glass of Champagne. By the time we arrived back at Fanhams Hall the rain had stopped and I took some shots with the bus outside the Courtyard. The light was beautiful, this is always the case when the rain stops (crystal clear). I took all the main couple shots mainly using the steps down to the croquet lawn, archways and formal gardens. I then shot all the family and friends groups before heading in to photograph The Pavillion before everyone went in. Chelsea and Sean had very kindly put me on a table with some family so I had a beautiful meal in great company. The speeches then started and were very good indeed Dad, Best Man and then the Main Man Sean. Seans speech for me was spectacular, he’s a natural public speaker and he delivered it straight from the heart.
The light was dropping really quickly so I took some dramatic shots with the sky before coming in for the cake cutting and first dance. Barry Owen (main attraction) sang their first dance live (Beautiful In White By West life) this was unreal and a beautiful moment. Everyone then joined in and the dance floor was rammed, all the Irish family and guests were going for it. The Photo Booth wasn’t working so I grabbed the props and took some crazy pictures for the couple. They had a London phone box as the photo booth backdrop and I knew they wanted some fun shots taken. So I gathered lots of couples and did half an hour Photos for them.
