Hedsor House is a beautiful wedding venue based in Buckinghamshire, very near to me. Hedsor house is such a fantastic venue for weddings and it has also been used to film many films in recent times. The venue is elegant and luxurious but it doesn’t feel stuffy, it retains a relaxed feel which I really enjoy. The wedding day of Joanna and Sammi was made even more special by the fact that it was relatively nice day with some blue skies at times.
Bridal preparations and ceremony
The venue provides with some rooms for the bride and groom and their guests. The bridal suite is very spacious and beautifully decorated. This is where I met the bride and her bridesmaids. Everyone was in great spirits, excited about the day. I enjoy this time of day. It allows me to get to know some of the bridal party and check the venue. It is really useful to get ready at the venue as everything takes place under the same roof. Logistically, it makes it very easy for everyone. The ceremony was in the main room and it was a simple yet beautiful ceremony. I could tell how much it meant to everyone. I enjoyed capturing those emotions as bride and groom see each other for the first time and are finally pronounced husband and wife. After the ceremony, the weather was a tiny bit cold so the guests stayed indoors for canapés and drinks.
The reception, wedding breakfast and first dance
The wedding reception was lovely and plenty of time had been set a side for guests to mingle. We took a few family photos and relaxed portraits during this time. I like to keep these sessions short so that the bride and groom can have a chance to mingle and greet their guests. The guests were then invited for a three course meal followed by speeches. The three speeches were fun and meaningful. They were also the right amount of time, which I find is important. Too long and guests get restless, here all the speakers had the full attention of the guests.
After the wedding speeches, we proceeded to the cutting of the cake, a sparkler exit, throwing the bouquet and then the first dance. It was a busy evening for sure but full of fun and joyous moments!
Below are some of my favourite images from their wedding day. Joanna and Sammi are a gorgeous couple, caring and funny and I certainly enjoyed documenting this fabulous wedding day for them. If you are getting married and are looking for Hedsor House wedding photos (or for any other venue) in a fairly relaxed photographic style, I would love to hear from you! Thanks for reading and have a fab day!
