Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer – Sarratt is a really picturesque village in Hertfordshire (near the Buckinghamshire border) which I know of because the lovely Micklefield Hall wedding venue is just outside the village. I’d never actually been into Sarratt before, and I was very happy to be there for Rich and Clare’s big day – it’s SUCH a pretty place!
When I arrived Clare was getting ready in the super cute cottage she shares with her husband. I was a bit (well, a lot) star struck on arrival – Clare’s full name is Clare Halse and she’s the star of the smash hit West End musical 42nd street ! She plays Peggy, and spends the show tap dancing on a piano and other awesome things (according to her very proud friends…I haven’t seen the show yet but I’ll be there as soon as I can!). She met Rich (who’s a very talented musician, currently performing in Mamma Mia) when they worked together on a pantomime, so it made sense for there to be a bit of a West End theme to the day.
The weather wasn’t kind to us (although we got a teeny bit of sunshine as Clare and her bridesmaids arrived at the village church – Holy Cross Church) so we did some of the group photographs in the church after the ceremony. They’ve worked out nicely so I might not just keep that up my sleeve as a rainy day option for other weddings! We also got some lovely photographs of the bride and groom leading their guests (and their brollies) to the village hall for the reception.
One of the highlights of the day for me was the first dance – they had the most amazing big band play, and Rich played the piano solo whilst his bride stood at the piano and watched. Lovely! The sound was goose-bump-inducing – I loved it!
Clare and Rich – congratulations on your beautiful wedding, and on your general awesomeness!
