Kelly and Bradleys wedding at Fanhams Hall. I started the wedding day nice and early at Fanhams Hall. Bradley had just arrived with his best man and two ushers. They pulled in to the courtyard in two BMW M4 specialist Cars and Bradley’s Range Rover. As they were putting the ribbons on Gracie the bride and grooms little girl ran up to her dad and gave him a big cuddle… “what beautiful moment” I got a few pictures of them all putting the ribbons on the cars . I then went up to the room to see get some shots of them playing table tennis. The boys all then got into their suits and I left them to finish getting ready and headed over to see Kelly.
When I got into the room I met Kelly’s mum Lesa, sister Amy and bridesmaid Katie. What lovely people… this was going to be a nice relaxed day “and they were all beautiful”. We did some pictures and then Nick from Fanhams came in with the key for the Bridal Suite. So Georgina from Hinxworth Bridal grabbed the dress and we all headed up to the suite. Shortly after getting in there Kelly got into her dress and looked amazing…everything came together at that one moment. Kevin the father of the bride then came in and was blown away. I got some brilliant pictures of him seeing her in the dress. We then went over to the window and with Georgina arranging the dress shot some lovely classical pictures using the natural light from the windows. It was now time to head into the Great Hall to set up for the wedding ceremony.
The Ceremony was performed by Margaret from Hertfordshire Registry Office. Ive worked with Margaret many times, she puts everything in and more when she conducts a wedding. The maid of honour and bridesmaid then came in followed by Gracie then Kelly… Bradley had to wipe the tears away. The ceremony finished with a huge kiss which I took showing the whole room and everyone cheering. I then took some beautiful shots of them signing the official register. Everyone then followed the couple outside and they threw the confetti. I then took the bride, groom and Gracie down into the main formal gardens and got some great pictures of the three of them and then took the couple shots.
The time was ticking on so the bride and groom came up to see their guests and I took the family and friends shots. We then all went in to the great hall for the wedding breakfast which was outstanding. The speeches then started … Bradley’s was amazing and he was trying hard to keep it together and did so brilliantly with the help of his beautiful wife taking his hand.
We then went out into the courtyard and arranged the cars for a few boys shots with Kelly joining in the last couple…”for some reason they wouldn’t trust me with the keys..haha”.
Mr H had now set up for the evenings dancing..the great hall looked amazing and Kelly and Bradley had their first dance. Everyone then joined in and the dance floor was rammed.
I then got some great dancing shots with the brides dad doing some great moves.. to the extent that I had to speed the camera up he was so fast. I then went over to the bride and groom to say my goodbyes and thank them for such a beautiful meal.
Kelly and Bradley…what a great day it was and meeting all your lovely family and friends.. Sometimes I have to pinch myself as weddings really are lovely occasions to be part of… Im very privileged.
