• The Old Palace Hatfield House Wedding, Hertfordshire

Hertfordshire wedding photographer Zoë Cooper

‘You were so helpful and patient in the lead up and it was a pleasure to have you around on the day. We love them so much, thank you!’

By the time Emma and Jaz’s wedding celebrations at The Old Palace Hatfield House had come around, they were already very used to the grandeur of a wedding day.

For this was to be their third (and last) wedding celebration. Having already enjoyed two formal wedding days honouring both family heritages with a traditional Sri Lankan wedding and an English wedding at Osborne House, on the Isle of Wight.

Their final wedding celebration was to be less formal. Having already had their traditional ceremonies, this day had much more emphasis on the celebration – and what a party it was!

300 guests were invited to Hatfield House for a reception which included canapes and drinks in the beautiful gardens of The Old Palace, a formal three course meal in the Banqueting Hall followed by an evening reception.

My brief was to document the informality of the day. Guests mingling, the amazing array of colourful clothing, the music being played, the laughter and the fun. During the garden reception Emma & Jaz took some time out with me to capture a few moments together in Hatfield House’s stunning grounds.

After the speeches they cut their third and final wedding cake to signal the start of the evening reception. Their first dance was I think the only time that evening the dancefloor only had two people on it.

The dancefloor is one of my favourite parts of a wedding day to photograph. It is so much fun to capture everyone letting their hair down, having a fantastic time and throwing some shapes. I, like many of their guests, did not want to leave.

Thank you Emma & Jaz for having me as your photographer for this fantastic celebration of love.
