Aisha and Asela | St Michael’s Manor Wedding Photography, St Albans

St Michael’s Manor wedding photography is always special, and it was an honour to document Aisha and Asela’s wedding day for them. There was the inevitable concern for the weather, and my fingers were firmly crossed as I assured Asela that it rarely rains all day. Well, the planets must have been in alignment, as not only did Aisha and Asela shine throughout, at times so did the sun. Yay!

I had already photographed Aisha and Asela for their pre-wedding portraits, (you can see them here) and I knew that they would be calm and confident on their wedding day. The registrars were a delight, and made the whole process easy for the couple. Aisha and Asela are a perfect fit for each other, and their happiness permeated the whole day – everybody was smiling. Even Aisha’s sunny colour scheme seemed to add to the mood – fantastic lime green bridesmaids dresses, and fabulous flowers by Jo and Nicky at Gadsden Flowers.

The speeches were full of love and emotion, and everyone was treated to an amazing display of energetic Sri Lankan dancers, before Aisha and Asela’s rather more considered first dance for  took place. It was, in every respect, an excellent day.

Here are a few of my favourite images from the day – a Photofilm will follow shortly.

As always, please leave a comment or two below, I’d love to hear from you.

We have had some many compliments on your lovely photos. Each time we look at them we find something new! We just wanted to let you know how grateful we are to you for doing such a brilliant job. Each of your photos are so natural and convey a true sense of emotion. You put us completely at ease and we did not feel self-conscious at all being photographed. We were so wonderfully surprised at how many candid and intimate moments you captured without being in any way intrusive.We really would have no hesitation in recommending you to our friends and family. Aisha and Asela

St Michael’s Manor Wedding Photography | Vicky and Pete

Vicky and Pete booked me last year for their St Michael’s Manor wedding photography. Their wedding took place in the beautiful Hertfordshire wedding venue St Michael’s Manor, which is one of my favourite venues for wedding photography, and I’m delighted to be one of their preferred suppliers. Our day together started together with Vicky and Pete both getting ready at St Michael’s Manor, (in separate rooms!) and Vicky was fine until she read the card that Pete had left for her – it was too much, the emotions came welling up. She was still trying to gather herself when her dad came to walk her down to the ceremony room. Yes, it was an emotional day!

Vicky’s couture wedding dress was made by my good friend Louise at Louise Marie Couture, and as you’ll see, Vicky looked amazing wearing it. My usual documentary wedding photography approach was ideal for Vicky and Pete, unobtrusively and sensitively recording the ceremony and events of the day as their story unfolded. We made time during the afternoon for some relaxed wedding portraits as we walked around the lovely grounds and lake. We had previously had a pre-wedding portrait session together, and without doubt this helped Vicky and Pete to feel even more comfortable being photographed on their wedding day.

In fact there was no holding back – Vicky is in love, and Pete is the happiest man around!
