27 Sep Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer Essendon Country Club
``Thank you! The photos are all amazing. We’re so happy with them!`` – Sarah & Nick
Hertfordshire wedding photographer
Sarah and Nick got married last spring in one of the most amazing small churches I’ve ever seen. The Church of St Leonard in Bengeo, Hertford is the oldest building in the town, dating back to 1120. And it made for a beautiful and properly atmospheric wedding ceremony.
The big day itself was one of those bright and breezy early spring affairs when one moment it feels a bit hot and the next moment bloody chilly. And I don’t know what it is about a strong wind on a wedding day – it just makes everybody even more excitable!
Please have a look through some of Sarah & Nick’s pictures below. And if you’re looking for a documentary wedding photographer or a Hertfordshire wedding photographer to tell the story of your Essendon Country Club wedding, or any other location, I’d love you to get in touch.
Harlow wedding preparations
The getting-ready in nearby Harlow was a real family occasion, especially because Sarah’s sister Claire had only just given birth a week or two before. And everyone wanted to hold the newborn babe, which made for some lovely pictures.
Then it was off to the wedding at the Church of St Leonard in a white Rolls. One of my abiding memories from the dash to the ceremony is witnessing (and photographing – see below) Sarah and her bridesmaids rushing round the side of the ancient church in such a tight group that they seem to be attached together. If it wasn’t for a glimpse of some 1960s houses in the background it could have been a scene from the Middle Ages.
Essendon Country Club wedding
After a few group photos we all drove over to the Essendon Country Club, which it’s oak framed 16thcentury barn. It’s such a great place for a wedding reception because it feels both grand and relaxed at the same time. It has two levels, with it’s own private entrance and private bar so that the wedding feels properly separate from the rest of the country club.
And as you can see from the images, the dance floor is plenty big enough for a really good party. And Sarah & Nick had a REALLY good party!
