We wrote on facebook a couple of days ago that we thought our kettle was going to explode – such was the amount of wedding meetings we have had recently! What struck us though in those meetings was the fantastic feedback that we have had on some of the images featured on our website, so we have decided to occasionally write a blog post on the story behind some of those wedding shots.
The photo featured here was taken at Rebecca and Anthony’s wedding at Brocket Hall in Hertfordshire, a venue we have worked at quite a few times in the last few years, and beautiful it is too. The shot is in the library there and was taken by David stood discreetly near the registrar. In an intimate setting such as this it is always a case of finding the right balance between capturing the moment and being as invisible as possible during the ceremony. We can’t remember exactly what was said in the seconds before the image was captured, but it involved Rebecca’s father mispronouncing something we think. Dad Ricky George has been a local Hertfordshire celebrity for some time now, as it was he as a professional footballer who scored the winning goal for Hereford United against Newcastle in the FA Cup in 1971, a massive act of football giant killing. However we only mention this as footie nerds and truly the star of the show on the day was daughter “Becks” herself. She is even more a star since we discovered she lives round the corner from us.
We should also point our that the two bridesmaids you can also see in the photo are married themselves, and we photographed their London and Hertfordshire weddings too.
Have a confession though…during the meal I (David) went away and had a race around the grounds on one of the golf buggies. Please don’t tell the venue. I’m not usually badly behaved.
