The View Wedding Day
The View is a golf complex in Welwyn Garden City with a licensed suite for weddings and events. In 2017 it was taken over by the team at Tewin Bury Farm Hotel, who wanted to maximise its potential as a wedding venue.
I joined Gemma and her bridal party at their hotel on the morning of her wedding. The morning gives me a great opportunity to get to know the bridal party, as well as capturing the all important details like the dresses.
The View is really a blank canvass for couples, and Gemma did a fantastic job of transforming the room.
With it being a Spring wedding and no guarantees of good weather, she included a flower wall for a backdrop if photos needed to be inside.
As it turned out this Spring day ended up being one of the hottest on record. Gemma and Richard got to have their ceremony outside just as they had hoped.
For couples who have young children, I like to break up the photos. Children have a limited attention span and therefore I like to get any ones including the children out of the way soon after the ceremony (and most importantly before their pristine outfits get covered in chocolate). Above all, it’s about making it fun for the kiddies, and engaging with them.
