Nicola and Alex get married!
I was absolutely delighted to asked to be Nicola & Alex's wedding photographer - I had shot Alex's sisters wedding at Essendon Park Country Club few years ago so it was lovely hear that Alex had asked Nicola the big question, and Nicola said yes!!!
I met our newly engaged couple at Hatfield House and we made plans for the photographs on the day! They both wanted a relaxed feel to the [photogrphs but were keen to have a lot of group photographs taken - Winter weddings are always a bit tricky as the daylight is so short, any delays or bad weather can leave you with your indoor back up plan!
However after a grey start to the day the rain stopped whilst Nicola arrived - ensuring she looked magical to walk down the aisle at the beautiful great hall at Hatfield House and the sun even shone through the grey as Nicola and Alex left for a spin in their wedding car after the ceremony!
We were on track for the group photographs outdoors...
Down to the drinks reception and I knew the best place for the group shot (nearly 200 people!) would be from the balcony - everyone is warm and I can get everyone in, we quickly completed and then set off to capture the couple photographs in the formal gardens of Hatfield House before the light vanished!
The speeches were emotional, funny and compelling - just what everyone wants - well done to Nicola's Dad, Alex and Best Man, Steve! With the speeches over we had one more outdoor task to complete - the sparkler shot! There wasn't too many places to choose as you really need a very dark spot - with just a little detailing to keep interest so after scouting the courtyard I decided on the gardens again - Nicola braved the cold and we got the shot!
Back inside again to party the night away with the band ensuring a good evening would be had by all.
