Beautiful Hengrave Hall wedding photography of the lovely Claire and Ben. It was my first Hengrave Hall wedding, what a spectacular wedding venue! I met with Claire and Ben a few weeks beforehand to talk through their day, and I was blown away with how amazing the venue is. On the day Shona and her team made everything run so smoothly and on time, allowing Claire and Ben to enjoy the day with no worries about logistics.
Both Claire and Ben were getting ready at the venue, which allowed me to get some shots of Ben and the boys, as well as the bridal party. The bridal suite is really spacious, making it easier to move around during bridal prep. I captured some lovely moments between Claire and her bridesmaids.
A stunning vocal performance by Claire’s friends at the end of the ceremony had lots of people in tears, including the registrar.
The weather was dry which meant the wedding guests could make use of the stunning gardens for a drinks reception. It also allowed me to grab some couple shots before they headed in for the wedding breakfast.
I’d been told earlier in the day that there was to be a surprise during the meal, just after the main course. Claire’s friends, who are in the performing arts industry, sang opera which was unbelievable! The real surprise came during their speech. This time as they sang, other guests joined in with the dance moves, much to the amazement of Claire who didn’t know anything about it! A truly magical moment.
A great party followed with a superb band.
Thank you both for letting me capture your wedding photography at Hengrave Hall amazing day. All the best for the future as Mr & Mrs Notley.
