A few weeks on from their e-shoot at Fanhams Hall, in Hertfordshire, I was back to photograph the Niki and Chris’s big day.
Praying for good weather after the cool temperatures that had been ever present I was delighted that we had a near perfect day, with just a few wispy clouds to soften the brightness of the sunlight coming through the stone mullioned windows of the rooms where everyone got ready, and of course the Grade II listed Great Hall where their ceremony was held. Such was the position of the windows in the bridal suite where Niki got ready, that she was able to take a sneak peak at everyone arriving for the ceremony- a great way to spend a few minutes but not sure if it calmed her nerves or increased them!
This Hertfordshire venue, has some great natural landscape features that really come into their own in summer, such as the meadow full of yellow flowers and on this occasion the wisteria arch providing a touch of romance as well as a great natural frame for some very relaxed shots of Nicki and Chris taking time out to wander around the gardens.
Inside, the lofty spaces provide room to manoeuvre around and provide the natural light that I prefer to work with. It was a breath of fresh air to be positioned at the front of hall for the ceremony (so often these days the photographer is dispatched to the back of the church or ceremony venue by an overzealous celebrant or priest!) whilst the chequered floors and mullioned windows provided architectural interest to the images of everyone relaxing and chatting.
All in all a good day…………..
And a few words that Niki sent through when she saw the images: Thank you for sending the e-album through it’s lovely to get a sneak peek at the pictures and they look lovely…..and later:thank you for the photo’s, they look beautiful – I think it’s going to be difficult to narrow down to 75!
