A Wedding Celebrating the English Summer at Micklefield Hall
As a wedding photographer I've been lucky enough to see many beautiful and special weddings at Micklefield Hall throughout the years. The team always make a big effort to ensure that each wedding feels unique and special to each couple and that was definitely the case for Hilary and Paul's big day. They had planned a perfect party for the guests with cream tea, games on the lawn and even beat poetry to keep them entertained. To top it all, the weather was absolutely perfect.
The day started with both Hilary and Paul getting ready separately at Micklefield Hall. I love that this special venue enables couples to do this and it makes it really easy for me to quietly go around capturing all the action from putting on the dress to doing the buttonholes and the guests arriving.They got married in a beautiful ceremony at the folly down by the lake. The highlight for me was Hilary's goddaughter and her sisters playing the Star Wars theme tune on the cello, guitar and clarinet as Hilary walked down the aisle - it put a huge smile on everyone's faces!
Drinks and canapés were served on the lawn by the ever excellent Kalm Kitchen before the guests were called into The Great Barn for a delicious looking cream tea. Everyone then spilled out into the grounds to soak up the early evening sun. Giant Jenga, Connect Four and Pick Up Sticks were all played whilst some guests enjoyed walks in the garden or simply taking in the view. As an alternative to a band, Hilary and Paul booked some beat poets who had the guests in fits of laughter.Such a fun day to photograph - thanks to the happy couple for having me along.
CONGRATULATIONS TO HILARY & PAUL!
