“Zoë made our day perfect, she listened to everything we wanted. She was amazing fun to be around on the day and helped us ensure my Wife and I had enough time to ourselves and enough opportunity to get perfect pictures. Our photos are simply amazing”

Chesfield Downs Wedding

From my first meeting with Amy & Richard I knew their Chesfield Downs wedding would be to be brilliant. Their quirky sense of humour resonated with me instantly. And their hope for a laid-back wedding day with big emphasis on fun, was music to my ears.

Their wedding Day

Amy and Richard’s marriage ceremony was held at St Ethaldreda’s Church, in Old Hatfield, Hertfordshire. I have been lucky enough to photograph many ceremonies at this 13th century Church. St Ethaldreda’s is impressively grand, however always manages to maintain a sense of intimacy.

Amy & Richard’s wedding reception was held at Chesfield Downs Golf & Country Club, in Graveley, Hertfordshire.

The guests travelled by private bus for the short journey from St Ethaldreda’s Church to Chesfield Downs. Meanwhile Amy and Richard’s choice of wedding transport was a VW Campervan. One of my favourites.

The weather on Amy and Richards wedding day was unpredictable. I think we experienced every season in one day.

To begin with we had bright sunshine in the morning. Then came the grey clouds and subsequent rain. It was cold, it was warm, there was a rainbow. But then we were rewarded with the most glorious evening sunset, which we took full advantage of.

On a wedding day a flexible approach is so important when it comes to the British weather. I always work hard to get the pictures my couples want, whatever the weather throws at us. Amy and Richard were brilliant at trusting me to do so, dashing out with me when the skies cleared.

After a great set of speeches, including a cameo appearance from the Proclaimers, the dancefloor called.

Amy and Richard kicked off the evening celebration, and what a party it was! The shoes were off and the shapes were being thrown. Above all, a fitting evening to a brilliant day.
