31 Aug Bedford Wedding Photography for Angharad and Matt
We have just finished our viewing with Angharad & Matt for their Bedford Wedding collection. It was lovely to see them again and it’s always lovely to see couples re-live their wedding through our images. Both sets of parents had travelled considerable distances to attend the wedding. Angharad’s parents had driven cross country from Wales whilst Matt’s had flown half way across the globe from Australia. So the house was somewhat packed with people when Anna and I arrived to start the bridal prep shots. You have to hand it to Matt & Angharad, not only had they planned their wedding in great detail but had only moved into their lovely new house just a week or so before, so they certainly gave themselves plenty to organise.
The wedding service was held at St Andrews in Bedford. Angharads father, not only proudly walked his daughter down the aisle, he also conducted the service. Which made for a very touching and interesting moment we came to the part of “Who gives this women to be married” !! The service was wonderful and we then walked to a nearby park which gave Angharad time to be with the students from her dance school based in Bedford. She also chose this moment to give them their exam results ! High drama indeed, and a great relief when not one simply passed but each had acheived merits and above. (excuse my lack of knowledge for the exam terminology) It was wonderful to see their faces.
Onwards to the reception at The Mill House Hotel in Sharnbrook and the beautiful scene of multi -coloured chair sashes which just looked wonderfully elegant and effortless (don’t you think?) It takes great imagination to create such a beautiful setting and with the 3 long tables there was a lovely intimate feel to the reception which included a vegetarian feast.
Thanks again for choosing us to cover your day, it was wonderful.
