I was very excited to work at the famous Pinewood Studios and being the Heatherden Hall wedding photographer for the wedding of Gaby and Phil. Heatherden Hall is a great wedding venue. It is also known for having featured in many high profile films. Gaby was getting ready at a nearby hotel and this is where I met Gaby and her bridesmaids. I like these moments before a wedding as I can pick up the vibes and emotions from some of the key people. Everyone was very relaxed and there was a good ‘ambiance”. I then went to the venue to capture a few shots of guests arriving. During this time, I also try to capture of few shots of the groom and his family waiting for the bride to arrive. The room for the ceremony was beautiful with lovely flowers. Everyone was happy and the bride was perfectly on time and looking radiant as she entered to room with her dad. The ceremony was fairly short with a nice reading and the dog made a great unplanned appearance. After the ceremony and a bubble shot (instead of a confetti shot) guests enjoyed the outdoors space at the venue. The grounds around the venue are beautiful and it was a gorgeous summer day.
It is great when guests can spend time outside. It makes for nice pictures for me but guests also get to do different things, such as playing crocket or with arrows and targets! After the drinks, the bride and groom had chosen to have a receiving line so that they could say Hello to everyone before sitting down for a meal. The wedding breakfast was then followed by speeches. All the speeches where beautiful but I remember in particular the speech from Gaby’s friend which was very funny and touching. The speeches were then followed by some “down time” for guests before the first dance. The bride and groom had a fun first dance and I stayed for a bit after that to capture their sparkler exit before heading home.
Below is a selection of my favourite images form their wedding day. I really enjoyed my time with Gaby and Phil and it was a great wedding and a fabulous location. I really hope that you enjoy the slideshow and images below and I look forward to hear from you in the comments section.
