A Small affair
29th October 2017
Michelle (my bride) worked with one of my previous couples and it was through them that we were introduced. We met back in April last year and when I heard their wedding ideas I couldn’t wait to get started!
After all the meetings, planning and preparations their special day finally arrived. Starting at the bride’s parents’ house for bridal preparation. Michelle looked absolutely stunning and I couldn’t believe how excited and calm she could be at the same time! Even Sophie (Michelle and Chris’ daughter) had a dress and floral crown for her teddy anxious.
For the ceremony I returned for my second wedding at St Mary’s Church in Shephall, Stevenage. This church holds a lot of meaning to Michelle as the place her parents married and her grandparents renewed their wedding vows. From here we travelled to the beautiful venue of Mercure Letchworth Hall Hotel. There were so many great backdrops for photos at this venue and Michelle and Chris’ attention to detail was amazing with table decorations, sweet and prop stalls and a wish tree.
It’s always wonderful when you meet a couple and get to know them during the whole process and build-up to the wedding but my favourite part is always the speeches. You get to hear what the couple are truly like through their family and friends. There was a mixture of beautiful, emotional and hilarious stories for Michelle and Chris’ day. See if you can guess from the photos what the best man had to say about where Chris’ place is now he’s married!
