Hartwell House Wedding - Rachael & Johnny

I started coverage of the wedding day taking photos of Rachael as she had her hair and makeup done in the Bridal Suite at Hartwell House. The Bridal Suite is a lovely large room featuring a four poster bed. Rachael was joined by her three bridesmaids and her Mum. We were later joined by Rachel's Dad who was very proud to be giving his daughter away. I photographed Rachel and her Dad exchange gifts before leaving for the church down the impressive staircase.

St. John Baptist Church

On arrival at the church I was greeted by the parish priest who explained that due to his bad experiences with other wedding photographers in the past that I would be limited to shooting at the very back of the church throughout the ceremony. Obviously this was less than ideal, as it meant I couldn't photograph the bride walking down the aisle properly and couldn't capture the emotions on the bride and grooms faces during the service. In the short time before the ceremony I could not persuade the priest to reduce his limitations, so I put on my long zoom lens and got on with the job at hand.

Church Wedding Photography

If you are getting married in a Church, I would recommend checking with the priest to see if there are any photography restrictions in place. If required I am more than happy to visit a church beforehand to explain to a priest how I work and what I will be doing during the ceremony so that I can deliver the highest quality images as possible for my clients while staying as respectful as I can be to the Priest and Church.

Hartwell House Wedding Photography

After the ceremony, the guests made their way to Hartwell House for a drinks reception. On arrival back at Hartwell House, Rachael and Johnny and I head straight out to take photos of the couple in the stunning grounds of the venue. We were helped by Johnny's best man who drove us around the grounds to help speed us up! We then took group photos of Rachael and Johnny's family and friends in the gardens before heading inside for the wedding breakfast. Hartwell House is a beautiful venue for wedding photographs, there are plenty of locations for stunning wedding portraits.

I had a lovely day photographing Rachael and Johnny it was rounded off by shooting their first dance. If you would like to see more Hartwell House wedding photography, please view Rachael and Jonny's wedding slideshow below. The slideshow is set to the music from the couple's first dance, in this case, Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol.

Congratulations Mr and Mrs Heritage, may you be blessed with a long and happy marriage!
