From my first meeting with Helen and David they had a clear vision of what they wanted their wedding day to be. Helen knew the type of wedding photos she liked and didn’t like – great guidance for me, and I left our first meeting knowing exactly how they wanted me to capture their day.
Helen and David wanted their Autumnal wedding to have a laid-back informal feel, with very few posed photographs allowing me to document the day candidly.
Tewin Bury Farm was an ideal choice for Helen and David with its close proximity to St Peter’s Church where they had chosen to exchange vows. Helen and David had hoped that weather permitting they and their guests would walk from St Peter’s Church back Tewin Bury Farm following the service.
Tewin Bury Farm is a firm favourite for couples looking for a Hertfordshire countryside wedding venue. The hotel is located between Hertford and Welwyn alongside the River Mimram in Hertfordshire. It has several wedding venue choices within its grounds, the most impressive of them being The Stable and the Tythe Barn.
Helen spent the morning of her wedding day with her bridal party in the Farmhouse at Tewin Bury. Guests (with sensible walking shoe changes at the ready) met with David and his Groomsmen for the short walk up to the St Peter’s Church ready for the ceremony.
The history of St Peter’s Church in Tewin dates back as far as the coming of the Saxons in 449, and is surrounded by rolling countryside. Helen very sensibly arrived by car, saving her feet and heels for the walk back to Tewin Bury from the Church.
After the ceremony guests enjoyed bottles of cider in the sunshine, and mingled within the Church grounds before heading back to the Farmhouse Gardens at Tewin Bury Farm for garden games and more cider.
