Laid Back and Relaxed Pub Wedding Photographer

When Angie and Marty decided to get married, they started their search for a laid back pub wedding photographer. Interestingly, I’d previously photographed a wedding that Angie was a guest at. Therefore she knew that I’d approach her pub wedding photography in the same relaxed, reportage style. Importantly this was a point they were both emphatic about. Clearly lovers of natural and real photography moments, I knew we’d be a good fit!

Why Choose a Pub Wedding?

A pub wedding perfectly compliments my style of photography. Always opting to shoot authentic moments as they arise, an unpretentious setting ensures there are plenty of these. Relaxed surroundings will encourage relaxed guests. Subsequently, relaxed guests feel free to let their hair down and show their joyous true colours. And that means there will be oodles of character in your wedding photography. Leaving you with emotive pictures that you’ll treasure for a lifetime.

Church Ceremony with a Village Pub Reception

Choosing to keep your wedding day local eases the logistics of the day massively. Angie and Marty opted for a church ceremony to start their wedding day. Happily, St Mary’s Church in the quaint village of Welwyn in Hertfordshire played host to this. During the ceremony emotional speeches meant guests shed happy tears. Furthermore, when Marty’s opera singer sister took to the stage she also took the roof off! At that moment myself and probably most of the wedding guests had goosebumps. It really was a wonder to hear.

A Short Stroll Back to The Pub Wedding Reception

In keeping with the “no fuss” feel to this pub wedding day, the bride and groom and guests wandered to the pub reception. Luckily made possible by its close proximity to the church, even in heels! The venue had been dressed beautifully by Dress It Yourself Abundantly filled with bohemian flowers, glassware and lace. It really did have the “wow” factor and set the mood for an intimate pub wedding reception. Angie and Marty chose a buffet style barbecue in keeping with the easy feel of the afternoon shenanigans. I hasten to add that it smelt amazing, all credits to the catering by The White Horse pub in Welwyn, Hertfordshire.

A Few Kind Words

Gradually as the afternoon turned into the evening it was time for me to leave. Angie and Marty had chosen my smaller wedding photography package for their pub wedding. In short, just enough hours to cover the ceremony through to reception. Hence I left everyone to continue their partying into the night! Kindly, Angie and Marty sent these kind words after receiving their wedding gallery.

“Thank you, thank you, thank you for the most amazing wedding photos. Denise photographed our wedding almost three weeks ago and it was perfect! She is so talented. You can forget boring, staged, run-of-the-mill pictures. Instead, think dynamic, action filled, fun, sensitive, rich and soulful. That’s what you get with Denise. These are beautiful memories that will be cherished for ever . Denise was super friendly and so well organised. also, she went above and beyond when our speeches over ran. She made everyone feel totally at ease, kids & grown ups alike. Her wonderful style has enabled us to experience moments we would have otherwise missed, that’s priceless. The whole process has been a joy & we cannot recommend Angels With Dirty Faces Photography highly enough. Thank you for being our awesome pub wedding photographer and now, lovely friend. Angie & Marty xx”
