From my first meeting with Amy & Richard I knew their wedding day was going to be brilliant. Their quirky sense of humour resonated with me instantly, and their desire for a laid- back wedding with big emphasis on fun was music to my ears.
They had chosen hold their wedding ceremony at St Ethaldreda’s Church in Old Hatfield, Hertfordshire. I have been lucky enough to photograph many wedding ceremonies at this 13th century Church. St Ethaldreda’s is impressively grand, but always manages to maintain a sense of intimacy.
Also, as impressively grand was Amy’s choice of wedding dress. This was a fairytale dress if ever there was one, and it fitted perfectly with the magnificent surroundings of St Ethaldreda’s Church.
The weather on Amy and Richards wedding day was what I can best describe as unpredictable. We were offered up pretty much every season in one day. From bright sunshine in the morning, to looming grey clouds and pouring rain, cold, warm, a rainbow, a bit more sunshine and the most glorious evening sunset to reward us for our efforts.
A flexible approach is essential when it comes to the British weather on a wedding day. I will always work hard to get the pictures my couples want given whatever weather is thrown at us, and Amy and Richard were brilliant at trusting me to do so, dashing out with me when the skies cleared.
