The Grove Hotel Wedding Photography – The Grove Hotel is a luxury hotel (and awesome wedding venue!) set in acres of Hertfordshire countryside just outside Watford (and surprisingly close to London given how ‘countrysidey’ it feels!). I worked there a few years ago and was delighted when Marie-Anne and Nico asked me back to photograph their big day.
Marie-Anne and Nico delightfully defied convention for a lot of their big day, which I loved. They got ready together, with a handful of their best friends, in their own flat 10 minutes from the Grove. The morning was beautifully relaxed – not a bridezilla in sight! Marie-Anne donned a leather jacket and biker boots as they all piled into their own car (driven by the groom) to drive down the road to the venue.
The bride and groom decided to walk down the aisle together, and the lovely paper bouquet was carried by Nico rather than Marie-Anne. They beamed at each other during the whole ceremony, then went out to greet their guests. It was a lovely, intimate wedding with only a couple of dozen guests, which meant they had time to really chat to every guest there. It meant they could all sit round one (albeit huge) table, which worked really nicely. Despite the truly terrible forecast we managed to get outside for some photographs in the Grove’s beautiful grounds, and even got a teeny bit of sunshine, which was the icing on the cake of a wonderful day.
Congratulations to Nico and Marie-Anne!
