The Riding School Wedding

The Riding School offers an alternative modern wedding venue, whist still being surrounded by history of Hatfield house.

Sharon and Rebecca chose The Riding School specifically for its modern feel. A direct contrast to the red bricks of The Old Palace and Stable Yard.

The Riding School was transformed with the expertise of event planners Chrisco Productions. Who brought in specialist lighting equipment and props to make the evening ambience extra unique. Chrisco Productions also provided the music throughout the wedding day.

After an emotional ceremony, guests headed outside to the gardens overlooking Hafield House for the drinks reception. Meanwhile Rebecca, Sharon and I took time out for some couples’ photos in Hatfield House’s pristine grounds.

I have always enjoyed the drinks reception where I get to sneak around photographing unaware guests. It’s a real chance to capture natural moments, real smiles and laughter.

After a few more drinks, and a lot more silliness we headed back to The Riding School for Sharon & Rebecca’s wedding breakfast.

Singing Waiters

The Best Women did a fantastic job of character assassinations of both Rebecca and Sharon in the speeches. And dinner was interrupted by a brilliant performance from secret singing waiters.

Who (by the way) did such a good job of convincingly stealing the wedding day thunder, I was sure they would soon be consequently wrestled to the ground by a guest. It was great fun photographing as the penny dropped that perhaps the Bride’s had been in on it all the time.

The singing waiters ended their performance with a medley of songs, which had everyone dancing around the tables. The dancing continued from thereon in, as dinner blended into evening reception.

In conclusion, Sharon and Rebecca’s wedding was a day of a lot of laughing, a lot of love and a whole lot of dancing.

Thank you Sharon and Rebecca, for having me as your wedding photographer!
