Three Lakes, Westmill Farm, Ware, Hertfordshire
Jenna and Mark had booked me for half a day wedding coverage, so I began the day at the venue Three Lakes, Westmill Farm, skipping the Bridal prep. I have covered this venue many times over the past few years, the staff are always friendly and really great with allowing enough time for photography. I really love the backdrop of the outside ceremony area looking over the lovely countryside and of course the Lakes, I always get some lovely shots there.
So I started by photographing Mark, with his dad and best man, his brother. We used the gardens and had a bit of a laugh with some fun natural shots of Mark and the boys.
After capturing the arrival of the guests and them taking their seats, it was time to shoot the arrival of Jenna and her bridesmaids. They had a beautiful white Rolls Royce.
After capturing some images of Jenna and the girls with the car, it was nearly time for the ceremony. After the usual formalities with the registrar, I grabbed some natural shots as they gathered to walk down the aisle.
Placing myself at the front, I met Mark full of emotion. I feel I captured this moment as Mark's brother offered a supporting arm asJenna made her way down the aisle.
After the ceremony, as canapés were served, I used this as an opportunity to grab some informal shots of the guests and time for Jenna and Mark to greet their friends and family and relax.
We then began shooting the formal group shots of them both as well as family and friends.
My day concluded with the speeches, I must say one of my favourite parts of any wedding as I can capture some great expressions.
It was a lovely way for Jenna and Mark's story of their day to come to a close.
I would like to thank them both for choosing me to capture their day and wish them all the best for the future.
