I clearly remember meeting Sophie and Michael at my home studio. It was well over 18 months ago. They came across as a happy and relaxed couple. They were having their wedding in Amersham. I was looking forward to being the Kings Chapel wedding photographer and document their wedding day. I arrived early enough to capture a few shots of the bride, family and bridesmaids getting ready. There was lots going on! Laughter, excitement, noise, as a wedding morning should be. Everyone was incredibly friendly and relaxed. The venue was literally next door and it made it easy for me to walk back and forth. The groom also looked calm when I met him. The Kings Chapel looked beautiful and a lovely place to get married at. When the bridal preparations where over, the bride and her dad walked to the venue. Everyone was ready and waiting, including their cute dog!
The ceremony was fairly simple yet special, including some readings. After the ceremony, guests were able to have drinks outside. It was a lovely afternoon (despite 5 minutes of light rain). Guests enjoyed ice cream, drinks and canapes! All to the sound of a sax player. It was really nice seeing everyone having fun and enjoying themselves!
The afternoon followed with the wedding breakfast and then the speeches. As a parent and perhaps a sensitive person, I really enjoy the speeches. I like to hear about the bride and groom. Meaningful and honest speeches are precious. I have been lucky to witness many speeches and it is easy for me to tell the one’s that come from the heart. All the speeches had a mix of humour and powerful moments and memories. After the speeches, guests had some time to relax before the cutting of the cake and the first dance. I left just shortly after the first dance.
Below are some of my favourite images from Sophie and Michael’s wedding day. I truly hope that you enjoy them as I am really please with the coverage. It was a fun day and I really enjoyed meeting Sophie and Michael, two lovely people! I look forward to hear your comments at the end of this post. If you are looking for a Kings Chapel wedding photographer (or any other venue for that matter) I would love to hear from you. Thanks for reading and visiting my website!
