St Albans Cathedral Wedding Photography for Sophie & Steven

St Albans Cathedral Wedding – A privilege and delight to photograph a Wedding at this beautiful and stunning Venue. We were very pleased  to be asked to photograph Sophie and Steven’s Wedding at St. Albans Cathedral. Sophie and Steven were able to get married in St Albans Cathedral as they both went to University in the city.  Our day started at St. Michael’s, Manor Hotel in St Albans, where Sophie, her family and Bridesmaids were getting ready.  With lots going on there was much to photograph. Wedding Photographer Hertfordshire Once the Bridesmaids were ready we took a few pictures in the garden.  A breeze got up just as we were about to take some pictures of Sophie so we had to quickly find sheltered spot, not quite what we planned but we have to live with these things! Leaving them we then went to the Cathedral where  Steven was greeting some of the Guests as we arrived so in between we took Steven and his Groomsmen for their pictures.  It wasn’t long before the Bridesmaids arrived and waited with the Dean in the North Churchyard for the arrival of Sophie. With the Guests seated Sophie took her Father’s arm and made her entrance through the Pilgrim Door into the Cathedral and into the Lady Chapel.  A beautiful service followed allowing us to capture some lovely moments.  Sophie and Steven then led their Guests from the Lady Chapel to the West doors.

On arrival at Shenley Cricket Club the Guests enjoyed the Drinks Reception and it wasn’t long before Sophie and Steven arrived.  Grace, Sophie’s sister then entertained everybody with her wonderful singing, providing some emotional moments, captured of course! After catching up on a few small group shots it was soon time for the Wedding Breakfast held in the Marquee. Coverage of the Speeches followed before a break before the evening celebrations. This allowed us to take Sophie and Steven for a few moments for a some of them in the soft evening light.Hertfordshire Wedding PhotographerDuring the evening we took some informal pictures of their evening Guests as well as speaking to familiar faces that earlier in the day we didn’t have time to speak to. Sophie and Steven cut their Wedding Cake just before the First Dance and with a sunset completed we were happy with our work for the day, it was time for us to say goodbye. A wonderful day!
