Lucy & Alex: Autumn Wedding at Chicheley Hall

Lucy & Alex’s day brought us back to the fabulous Chicheley Hall, which will always hold a special place in my heart as it was the venue for one of my first ever weddings!

Lucy looked so elegant in her strapless Maggie Sottero dress, chic updo and killer red shoes, with the boys looking dapper in their morning suits and teal ties. Alex paired his suit with his dream watch which Lucy wrapped up for him as a wedding morning present – a really wonderful surprise.

They chose the little church in the Chicheley Hall grounds for their ceremony, and I just love the way they kept looking at each other throughout their vows. Everybody managed to keep the big secret under wraps: a surprise ring bearer in the form of a gorgeous husky the pair used to own when they lived in England. It was so thoughtful and there were tears and beaming smiles all over the place!

After the ceremony we took a bit of time out to shoot portraits in the beautiful grounds of their venue, before leaving the two to mingle with their closest friends and family. Lucy & Alex descended down Chicheley’s iconic staircase to cheering guests for dinner, such a dramatic and memorable moment!

Later that evening, Lucy returned the earlier surprise by booking a Frank Sinatra style singer much to Alex’s delight, who got everybody up on their feet dancing. After a beautiful choreographed first dance, we left Chicheley with the music pumping and the disco lights shining through the windows. Congratulations you two!

Thank you so much for all these wonderful photos. They look incredible and we couldn’t be happier! We very much enjoyed reliving the day through these photos and you have done an amazing job with them!

Styled Shoot: Charlie & Harvey at Chicheley Hall

As promised, here is a look at the finished photos from our styled shoot earlier this year.. I've been so excited to share these! If you missed it, click HERE to see this shoot published on the cover of Your Herts & Beds Wedding magazine.

On a sunny day at the beginning of April, a whole lot of Bedford-based wedding vendors joined forces at Chicheley Hall to work on a styled shoot, co-ordinated by wedding planner TJ of Weddings Rock My World. It was an enormous amount of fun and I feel so inspired to get out there and do more styled shoots. What a fantastic way to network with local vendors!

There are too many finished photos to share but below I've posted my absolute favourites.. I hope you like them! A big thank you to everybody involved in the creation of these pictures - your hard work is greatly appreciated and I really hope our paths cross again very soon in the future :-)

Martyn & Kate: Chicheley Hall Wedding

Back in November, we had the honour of photographing Martyn & Kate's beautiful winter wedding at one of our all-time favourite wedding venues, Chicheley Hall. We originally met them whilst photographing a Rotary Club dinner a few years back, so it was especially lovely to meet and photograph them at such an important day in their lives.

Good weather at winter weddings can provide a gorgeous sunset for photographs, and luckily this their day provided just that! We managed to get some wonderfully atmospheric photos of them as the sun went down, walking down the corridors of trees in the grounds of Chicheley Hall.

Martyn & Kate, thank you for inviting us to be such a big part of your day. We loved every second!

“They look amazing! Thank you both for all your hard work. We both said that we could not have hoped for two nicer people to enjoy those quieter moments of the day with - so thank you.” - Martyn & Kate
