Sue and Chris were married at St. Mary’s Church in Chesham, followed by a gorgeous marquee wedding reception just a short stroll away. This just happened to be the rainiest day in September, and boy did the heavens throw everything at us! Luckily, this didn’t dampen the spirits of their guests on the day. Whilst family and friends sheltered from the elements and partied in the marquee, we could all still admire Sue and Chris’s stunning garden and flower borders through the open sides. I loved how they incorporated their pretty garden fish pond and some of the beautiful flower borders inside the marquee, the visual effect was breathtaking!
In my 26 year career as a wedding photographer, this is the first time I’ve ever been able to walk to both the church ceremony and reception venue from my studio. Before I get too smug, I should point out I did get a good soaking as I captured the guests dashing off to the reception under a sea of umbrellas!
Below is the lovely letter of thanks I received from Sue and Chris:
Thank you for these excellent photographs of our wedding day. The formal and informal mixture of photos at St Marys Church, Chesham and at our reception in the marquee in our garden nearby had us reminiscing already. Your roving camera had captured some wonderful scenes and groupings of guests we had missed.
It was rainiest day in September but you had prepared for that. We were also impressed with your planning and specialist “inside knowledge” of what usually works; we had a preliminary meeting with you and we then met at the church and our home two days beforehand to consider your suggestions and options. Your good humour with our guests on the day was much appreciated; you had the right skills for organising, when necessary, guests at a gathering and otherwise being unobtrusive.
Sue and Chris
