Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer – Lucy and Sim held an absolutely beautiful wedding at wonderful Hertfordshire wedding venue Micklefield Hall. Lucy got ready in the bridal room and I was really impressed when I arrived at just how calm everyone was – there was a lovely chilled atmosphere. Lucy looked incredible – lovely hair and make up artist Hanna Wildman (who did my own wedding make up 100 years ago) created the most beautiful smooth updo and Lucy looked like a movie star!
I often tell clients not to worry about the weather. It is obviously a bit of a waste of emotion as you can’t do anything about it, plus although it seems to rain quite a lot in the UK, it rarely rains all day. However, Lucy and Sim’s wedding day was one of those days where it really did rain all day long! Rain won’t ruin your wedding day, but if the bride or groom are grumpy about it that would put a dampener on the day (see what I did there?!). Thankfully, Lucy and Sim were absolutely incredible and beamed all day. After all, they still got to marry the love of their life in front of their friends and families, so what does a bit of rain matter?! And a happy bride and groom equals happy guests, so everyone had an absolute blast!
The ceremony was held in the barn, which Andrew Fleming had decked out with stunning flowers. There are good wet weather photo options at Micklefield Hall, and we opted for doing the group photographs by the fireplace, which worked really well.
A benefit of rain on your wedding day is the opportunity for some creative shots. Once it was dark, and after I’d tested my lighting (thanks to one of the videographers for being my model!), Lucy, Sim and I popped outside into the rain with a brolly and a video light and created some lovely images. In fact, I posted one on my instagram and it’s one of my most liked photo ever, so it seemed to go down well!
Huge congrats to the gorgeous newlyweds – Lucy and Sim, you’re amazing, and I wish you all the best for the future!
