Wedding Photography Hunters Meet – It was a wet start when we travelled to Mel and Ollie’s house for Mel’s final bridal preparations. When we arrived Mel was having the finishing touches to her hair and make-up, giving us time to photograph the details and accessories. Once Mel was ready, a few pictures were taken of Mel and her Bridesmaids inside as it was still rather wet outside. As luck would have it, when we were ready to leave for the Church, it had stopped raining and the sky was brighter.
St Mary The Virgin Church, Debden was where we met Ollie and his Groomsmen and managed to get a few pictures of all of them before they continued to carry out their duties. It wasn’t long before Mel and her Mother arrived in her Grandad’s classic Austin car and after a couple of pictures they entered the Church.
Following the service Mel and Ollie spent a few minutes talking to their Guests, then it was time to quickly get on with the requested family pictures as the clouds were threatening more rain. Confetti followed the photographs before we all left for the Reception.
When Mel and Ollie arrived at Hunters Meet Hotel, the Austin was driven into the Garden where their racing Mini car was, so they could have some special pictures taken. Making sure Mel and Ollie spent some time with their Guests, we spent our time getting some informal pictures. Although the weather was fine the rain clouds were on their way again! We took Mel and Ollie for their pictures, taking some other small group pictures before the ‘everybody’ shot was a good move. No sooner as we had finished our last picture, the rain started! How fortunate they were! The heavens opened and continued for some time. With everybody inside it was time for the Wedding Breakfast followed by the Speeches before the evening Reception. Later Mel and Ollie’s Evening Guests arrived and just before their First Dance we went onto Hatfield Heath itself for a few evening images, not quite the sunset we hoped for but a little colour in the clouds made up for it.
Our coverage of Mel and Ollie’s Wedding Day finished a little while later.
