Down Hall wedding photography

Helen and Tess marry in style – Down Hall Hotel, Hertfordshire

Helen and Tess were married at the fantastic Down Hall, a beautiful and luxurious wedding venue set in the Hertfordshire countryside. You can read all about Helen and Tess’ awesome wedding day below and I hope you enjoy my Down Hall wedding photography too!

Wedding photography

The day began for me by taking a stroll around the beautiful grounds of the hotel; this was the first time I had shot here so getting a feel for how I would approach my Down Hall wedding photography was a first important step. I then headed into the Hotel to photograph the two brides nervously getting ready with the support of Pkay Bridal hair and make up.

August weather

The plan was for an August outdoor ceremony but the wild (August!) weather did not play ball. Undeterred, H & T refused to let the weather put a damper on the day and everyone got into the spirit of things.

Candid wedding photos

The heartfelt indoor ceremony was followed by cocktails outside where I focused my lens on lots of natural, candid photos of the couple and their guests soaking up the moment.

Wedding dance photography

Helen and Tess were beautifully serenaded by two close friends before dinner and speeches. The evening, as is tradition, ended with wild and celebratory dancing with the stunning Supatight who almost blew the roof off the hotel with 3 sets of R & B and soul music.
