• Tipi Wedding in the Hertfordshire Countryside

Hertfordshire wedding photographer Zoë Cooper

‘We are so pleased with our wedding photos! From beginning to the end they tell the story of our special day, and you captured every emotion. It was lovely to have someone so easy to work with’.

It is impossible to rely on the Great British Summer, and even in August you are not guaranteed a dry day.

When you have planned a rustic wedding with your venue being a Tipi in the middle of a field in the Hertfordshire countryside, there is bound to be a lot a focus on the weather.

On this front Danielle and Chris’s nerves were certainly tested. With the weather looking uncertain, and continual spells of rainfall in the lead up to their wedding, contingency plans were being made to ensure the field did not become a muddy bog.

And, although it kept us guessing right up to the last-minute, Summer did show up on the day, and the ground had dried out well enough for even the highest of heels.

Danielle chose to spend her wedding morning at her family home with her Bridesmaids. She was surprised with a video sent to her by her soon to be Husband which left everyone in tears.

Danielle and Chris chose to marry at Ayot St Peter’s Church in Hertfordshire, just a short drive from the field where their wedding Tipi stood.

Whilst guests enjoyed their reception drinks and being entertained by the magician, I took Danielle and Chris off to capture some relaxed photos around areas of the field that I had scoped out in the lead up to the wedding day. I was thrilled to see the hay field I had found had not been cut back yet, as I wanted to incorporate as much of the rustic Hertfordshire countryside that was so fitting with the theme of their wedding.

The wedding breakfast was a carvery at each individual table, and guests were encouraged to get stuck in with the serving, adding to the informal feel of the day.

Lit fire pits, sparklers, and an amazing firework display kicked off the evening reception. Then everyone hit the dancefloor with full gusto.

Thank you Danielle and Chris for having me as your wedding photographer.

Are you planning your wedding? If so I would love to hear from you.
