Emma and Alex got married at one of my favourite wedding venues – the very excellent Notley Abbey near Thame in Bucks – a dream for photography and a hop and a skip from GHP HQ. The thing I will remember about this wedding was the incredible colour – even on a day of mixed weather conditions, the wedding was saturated with beautiful pinks and yellows and greens and oranges. The bridesmaids dresses, the guests, the cake, it was a colourfest that made your average rainbow look monochrome. I had yet another chance to work with the immensely talented make up artist Jodie Santer, who is an incredibly calming influence on any crazy wedding morning, and highly recommended by me.
Emma and Alex smiled their big smiles all day, and Alex’s spontaneous one-liners during the ceremony deserved some kind of award. As ever the lovely registrars at Notley were very welcoming, and certainly put everyone at ease.
We beat the rain (just) and got our bride and groom portraits done under the (literally) awesome canopy of the neverending avenue of trees that leads to Notley Abbey. It really is an incredible venue for wedding photography – the outdoor space is vast and the light all around the place is just fab, inside or out.
I’m looking forward to photographing another wedding at Notley Abbey in a few weeks time.
