As most of my work is in London it was lovely to become a Buckinghamshire Wedding Photographer for a day. Lucy and Sam were married on a beautifully warm July day at St Mary’s Church in old Amersham. The reception was at the nearby Kings Arms Hotel, a wonderful venue that has been used for many TV and film productions, including Four Weddings and a Funeral.
On this day however there was just one wedding and it was also a classic – one that I will look back on fondly. Lucy was so calm in her preparations, making her a wonderful leading lady. The service was both beautiful and emotional in equal measures, then it was outside into the glorious sunshine and the confetti shot, one of my favourites from the day. Then we took some beautiful portraits of the newlyweds, around various spots in Amersham.
When we moved on to the reception it was packed full of fun and laughter, just how it should be. The afternoon was warm and perfect for drinks on the lawn, ideal for family and friends to catch up with each other. Then it was inside for the wedding breakfast and really funny and emotional speeches – there was hardly a dry eye at the top table!
I loved this wedding so much – everything was perfect from the fabulous bride and groom to the stunningly perfect venue. And with the gorgeous weather we were able to take advantage of the changing light throughout the day, right up until the sunset. Some of my favourite portraits from this wedding are the evening ones when the sun is just starting so set. And of course the partying was able to carry on outside well into the night…
Here are some of my favourite images from the day, hope you enjoy seeing them.
