The Wedding of Rebecca & Hamish

On August Bank Holiday I photographed Rebecca and Hamish’s wedding at Great Hallingbury Manor (https://www.suryahotels.co.uk/hotels/great-hallingbury-manor/).
The venue is set in a beautiful countryside location of Essex and Hertfordshire borders.

As usual, the weathermen were wrong and I arrived at Rebecca’s parent’s house on a bright sunny morning. The family and her bridesmaids were getting ready whilst the bride was with her hairdresser Stephanie Paphitis (stephaniestylianou89@hotmail.com).

The enjoyable thing I knew and loved about this wedding is that they had a Harry Potter theme, and they even had the Ford Anglia

After some group shots, I headed off on a short trip to St. Michael’s church to meet up with the Groom and Best Man.

After the ceremony, we headed outside to get some group shots, confetti, and the throwing of the bouquet, with some funny antics going on in the background 🙂

We headed to the reception venue – Great Hallingbury Manor (www.greathallingburymanor.co.uk) and after the drinks reception, began some of the group shots before I took Rebecca and Hamish around the venue for their portrait photos.

After the portrait session, I left the couple to rejoin their guests and took some candid shots before the wedding breakfast.
