I was thrilled to get the call to be Natalie and John’s House for an Art Lover wedding photographer. It’s the most beautiful of spaces to work in with the dramatic contrast between the Hall and the Music Room.
The Hall has it’s high ceiling, dark panelling and huge north facing windows while the Music Room is all white with south facing windows and a bright open terrace. Moving from the dark hall into the bright music room triggers a sharp intake of breath every time. Well, it does for me anyway!
So with the familiar promise of such a great venue, I was very excited by the prospect of the day ahead. The damp and overcast day didn’t spoil the anticipation as I knew Natalie and John would be the perfect couple to work with.
I’ve put together a short photofilm of my favourite images of the day. I hope you enjoy it and look out for the surprise entrance during the reception….
What did you think of that? I hope you liked it – it was certainly a great day to photograph.
Natalie and her bridesmaids were at Malmaison for their preparations. The time there flew by and it didn’t seem more than a few minutes before she was walking down the stairs on her dad’s arm to meet John, nervously waiting in front of the assembled guests.
A reassuring squeeze of the hand and an exchange of glances seemed to put them both at ease and they were relaxed and having fun from that point on.
Its really important for me as a documentary wedding photographer to have no impact on the events of the day and I pride myself on being able to capture tender moments like these both silently and with full respect for the integrity of the moment itself which could be so easily spoilt by distracting movements and noise.
I have photographed lots of weddings at the House for an Art Lover now and it never fails to provide the most wonderful setting whatever the style and approach of the couple. If you have booked your wedding there and are looking for a photographer, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
