It’s a rare honour and truly special when a couple is able to stage their wedding at their family home, and it always add some magic to the day. Gerrards Cross, what an incredible location, with stunning gardens and even little places to explore away from the guests to capture more romantic shot. The weather was perfect, the setting idyllic, the marquee (by Sail and Peg) was gorgeous, especially in the evening light, and the atmosphere was brilliant, exactly what makes for the coolest possible wedding.
Best of all, working with Ed and Lucy was really easy, they were so easy-going and just wanted a discreet laid-back approach to their day, which is what I’m all about. The photographer was Jonny MP, one of the best wedding photographers in the UK and really personable, a team player and all round good guy. The band kept everyone on their feet all night, the caterers were brilliant and us camera holders were all so well looked after. Oh, and there was a string quartet too, for the ceremony and reception, who added to the calming yet sophisticated ambience. Plus – special bonus for me was the dogs! Four legged guests should be compulsory, honestly. If you’re getting married and you don’t have a dog then please at least hire one for the occasion – that must be a thing, right?
And check out that ceremony location! This place could totally be a top wedding venue, with all it has to offer, and the father of the groom was rightfully proud of the immaculate gardens. Next to the ceremony gardens was the lawn where the confetti took place. I do love a nice confetti shot, and this one was top tier!
Wish I could experience the day all over again, but the wedding film will have to do – enjoy!
