Here is a sneak-peek of Katie and Chris’ fabulous London wedding at One Great George Street recently. More to come soon!
Karen and Steve Jewish wedding celebrations took place at Pendley Manor, Hertfordshire, and despite having been a wedding photographer for longer than I really need to remember, I haven’t photographed there before, something which I’ve had to work hard convincing people, especially my wedding photographer friends. It’s a lovely venue, and Karen and Steve were looked after really well.
It had dried out about enough for just heels to sink into the grass, as opposed to one’s whole leg (it’s been that wet) and so we had a chance to break our reportage coverage of the day’s events to go outside for some portraits. Pendley Manor is famous for it’s peacocks, but despite my best efforts (peacock herding is an acquired skill…) I couldn’t get a decent shot of one with the couple. Happily I got some lovely shots of Karen and Steve without peacocks, so that’s a result!
Karen looked amazing in her dress, and I know Steve was thrilled when he looked round and saw her walking down the aisle towards him. The ceremony was touching, with lots of good humour. And talking of humour, the speeches were excellent, especially Steve’s opening remark, the response to which you can see below.
Here are a few favourites from the day. If you’d like to discuss your wedding photography at Pendley Manor, please contact me here.

The gardens at Hatfield House are ideal for pre-wedding portraits, and at this time of year they are blossoming. Even the bluebells are still in flower, along with rhododendrons and cow parsley. Lisa and Michael were immediately at ease in front of the camera, and we wandered through the formal and informal areas of the gardens, spoilt for choice with good areas in which to photograph. Lisa’s mum came along and took a few photos too, so Lisa and Michael had the full paparazzo treatment!
These pre-wedding portraits are so worthwhile – it’s a great chance to get even more comfortable having your photo taken professionally, we get to know each other better, and everyone feels more comfortable together on the wedding day right from the start.
Here are just a few favourites from our morning together.
