Micklefield Hall wedding photography – I’m lucky to be one of a handful of wedding photographers recommended by the simply lovely staff at Micklefield Hall (a luxury country house wedding venue in Hertfordshire, near Rickmansworth). This means that I regularly get to photograph at one of my favourite wedding venues – in fact, this was my 4th wedding there in 3 weeks! I won’t gush too much – look at my previous few blog posts if you want to hear why I love the venue so much…although if you just take a look at the pictures here it should be pretty obvious why!
I’ve been looking forward to this wedding for a long time – as soon as I met Lucia and Matt I knew they’d throw an awesome wedding party! Lucia has a big Italian family, and I suspected that the stereotypes would be true – that there would be masses of delicious food, a lot of warmth and laughter plus a singalong or two…and I was right! After their Catholic wedding ceremony the newlyweds drove off to Micklefield Hall for a lovely sunny champagne reception. After lots of group photographs (organised in superb fashion by Lucia’s lovely sister!) everyone went into the Great Barn for the wedding breakfast. This started in style, with the whole wedding party announced in, and Lucia and Matt literally danced their way into their wedding reception – the crowd loved it! They had an awesome wedding singer who lead everyone in a giant singalong to Amore – which I LOVED. There was so much love and laughter in the room. There were lots of other lovely touches e.g. Lucia singing a duet with her grandpa (there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!) and the very touching speeches. Seemingly minutes after the 4 course meal (including a pasta course, of course!) there was a hog roast. And mini fish and chips. Oh and some cheese on toast. Italians certainly don’t want anyone to go hungry at a wedding!
I stayed til the end of the (very enthusiastic!) dancing so I could photograph the sparkler exit, what a wonderful send off! Huge congrats to you lovely peeps, I wish you every happiness. xx
The stunning food is by Kalm Kitchen (my favourite wedding caterers) – look how pretty they make everything, even if it’s just laying out some baps for pulled pork they make it look like a little work of art! Thanks also go to the awesome Martin Hobby for second shooting with me, and Anna, Abby et al at Micklefield Hall for looking after me so well (as ever).
Love Sarah xx
