It was a gorgeous day for the wedding of M&S. A sunny, yet a tad chilly spring day in March. Wedding photography at Moor Park is always beautiful, as it is such an outstanding wedding venue. The photography is even more special when the sun is out and the light filters beautifully in all the rooms that the venue offers. Moor Park is situated just north west of London, and ideally situated. I arrived fairly early in the morning to capture a few shots of the bride getting ready. The venue offers a lovely suite for the bride and bridesmaids to get ready in. By the time I arrived, the preparations were well under way.
The mood was relaxed, with everyone sipping a drink while chatting and getting ready. Everything is within reach and I was able to move around to capture a few shots of guests arriving and the groom greeting them.
Everything ran to time on the day. The bride, groom and guests alike were ready for the ceremony. It was lovely to see the emotion on both M&S faces as they saw each other for the first time during the ceremony. This is what weddings are about for me. Those real moments of joy and love that take place during a wedding. The ceremony was lovely, mixed with laughter and tears. Shortly after the ceremony, guests gathered outside for a confetti throw that was followed by a few family pics. It was still a bit chilly to have drinks outside, and guests moved indoors for the rest of the drinks reception.
Both the bride and groom love their music and a classical trio provided some beautiful music during the reception. Just before the wedding meal, the bride and groom joined me for a few portraits before being welcomed by their friends and family for the wedding breakfast.
After the meal, following with tradition, we had speeches. They were all lovely and emotional. And funny too. And I think that this is the perfect recipe for wedding speeches. They were also the right amount of time which means that guests are entertained. After the speeches, we adjourned to the main Hall were the bride and groom had a lovely cake waiting for them, ready to be cut! A lot of effort had been paid to and the the band were incredible as was the lighting in the room. The bride and groom performed their first dance before their family and guests joined. Shortly after, as a surprise to their guests., Sega dancers arrived onto the dance floor. The bride has a Mauritian background and the Sega dancers perform a traditional dance that is special to the bride and her family. It was beautiful to see!
Shortly after the Sega dancers. it was time for me to leave the M&S to enjoy the rest of their evening with their guest. Below are some of my favourite images from their wedding, I really hope that you like them. If you are getting married and wonder what Wedding photography at Moor Park is like, then I hope that the images below give you a god insight.
