Wedding Photographer Essex & Hertfordshire

Wedding Photography at The Bobsleigh Hotel near Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire

As a wedding photographer in Hertfordshire and Essex, you may recall I ran a competition last summer in Your Herts & Beds Wedding magazine offering the prize of my Modern Package. On Friday I photographed the competition winner’s (Michelle and Glen) wedding at Leverstock Green Church and the Bobsleigh Hotel near Hemel Hempstead.

The weather on the day was perfect for a wedding, it was bright, slightly overcast and not too warm which I was pleased about. I took Martyn, an assistant along with me on the day and being a photographer as well, he was able to capture some great casual shots whilst I was posing the formal groups. I can offer a dual photographer service at quite reasonable rates so please enquire when making a booking with me.

Normally I like to photograph a wedding ceremony from the front of the church, that way I can capture the expression throughout the service. Unfortunately the decision of where photographs can be taken (if at all) does rest with the vicar, priest or reverend, and in the case of this wedding I was restricted to the back of the church. Not to worry, as I still managed to capture the moments throughout, thank the lord for zoom lenses!

Back at the Bobsleigh Hotel I was able to take a few romantic shots utilising the grounds. The Bobsleigh Hotel, although a small venue, did have some beautiful gardens and seemed very well looked after, ideal for wedding photographs.

There were around 50 guests on the day and the gardens made a great setting for the formal group photographs. Although the church was in a nice setting, the space would have been a little too tight for the formal group shots. Having already viewed the venue with the Bride and Groom as I try to do with all my weddings, it made sense to use the venue for these shots.

As with all my weddings, I try to capture the details and accessories throughout the wedding day which really do make lovely background fades in the wedding album, and here are a few examples.

I thoroughly enjoyed the day with Michelle and Glen, and photographed right through to the first dance.
