As a ‘discerning wedding photographer’, Adam and Jules’ wedding day at Hambledon House went even further than my expectations, from when they described it to me last year. Vintage cars and bus, amazing country house & grounds, giant tipis, evening light show….all the details worked so well to pack their day with visual delights.
Fun, candid and natural photographs were what Matt and Prim had requested for their wedding day……oh and also a sublime sunny English summer day would be nice too?! Well, the ‘extra topping’ came in thick abundance !!
The interior of St Peter’s and St Paul’s church, in the centre of Godalming, offered some cool respite from the blazing hot Surrey sun and I was more than happy to share my water bottle with the groom (dehydration can lead to fainting). Such were the conditions, that a large number of wedding guests were forced to shelter and take max refreshment in a nearby shady pub until the very last minute before the ceremony started. Matt had been a tad concerned about the lack of numbers until the mass stampede appeared around the corner.
Prim arrived a weeny bit late, however her radiant smile and stunning beauty reassured and took everyone’s minds off the sweaty concern/heat factor; Matt was clearly blown away but remained standing (glad I had offered him the water). It was a lovely ceremony with friends & family reading, performing and offering hearty singing.
