Micklefield Hall Wedding Photography with Emily and James.
When Emily and James contacted me about their Micklefield Hall wedding photography I was thrilled to bits. This, for me was the hat trick! Having previously shot Emilys mums wedding and her sister Lauras wedding too, this would complete the family!
It’s a true treat shooting returning clients. I love to build a relationship with each couple I photograph so in this instance we hit the floor running. I must add that James was an exemplary best man at Laura’s wedding so I had high hopes for his wedding day behaviour 🙂
St Mary’s Church Amersham.
Our day started in the familiar surroundings of the family home. Beautifully decorated, the house makes a stunning backdrop for bridal preparations. However, shooting a set of images which differ from Laura’s and her mum’s was a challenge. None the less, one I was happy to take on board. The lovely Amanda, from Amanda Artistry joined us again for make up duties. She does a great job, I love her “smokey eyes” and flawless skin. You can visit her here.
Once ready we all made our way to the beautiful village of Old Amersham where the wedding ceremony was being held in St Mary’s Church. These guys always seem to make me emotional and this day was no exception. The tears flowed as beautiful Emily made her entrance, honest, it wasn’t just me!
A reception at Micklefield Hall.
Micklefield Hall is set amongst sweeping views and gorgeous grounds. The newly renovated Great Barn is equally impressive, listed with original beams dating back to 1490! Interesting quirky features include a cloistered walkway, garden room with an open log fire and a French fountain. Unsurprisingly, Micklefield Hall wedding photography is an absolute joy.
I knew from our pre wedding consultations that Emily and James had a few favourite spots that they wanted some portraits shot in. Having visited prior to the wedding myself, I had a few ear marked too. In keeping with my “let’s do something different” attitude I was chuffed to hear that Emily was more than game to hike across a pig field in her wedding dress. James was a little less keen! I appreciate it’s not everyones cup of tea, but Emily got the shots she wanted. And that, after all is what counts.
A Farewell tinged with Sadness.
Talented Thom from Thommusic provided live acoustic music throughout the day, perfect to drink and chat to! Luckily, the wonderful Soho Gourmet were on standby with their amazing freshly cooked pizza to soak up a little alcohol as the day rolled effortlessly into the night. I love to jump amongst merry wedding guests capturing the lively part of the evening. Crazy dancing shots are high up on my favourite list.
As I said goodbye at the end of the night I felt like I was saying goodbye to old friends. The past three family weddings had been a joy to be a part of and the familiar faces I’d shot would be missed. I guess maybe now I might wait for the baby photo shoots…
