Here are my favourites from Caroline and Jeremy’s wedding in August at the stunning Hampton Court House in Surrey. If you’re getting married at this stunning venue, do please contact me to discuss your requirements.

Hampton Court House is an independent school that’s also used for weddings and has appeared in various TV productions and films. Unlike some other schools that host weddings, when it’s set up for weddings you wouldn’t know there’s a school there – so you won’t be saying your vows surrounded by the year 11 art projects 🙂

I started the day at the smart Lensbury Hotel just around the corner from Hampton Court House and joined Caroline, her mother and the bridesmaids for bridal prep. Once hair and makeup was finished, Caroline put on her fantastic dress (and gave the girls their necklaces as a thank you – I was outside the door, it took all my control not to burst in shouting ‘but I need to photograph this bit!’), then we waited for her dad to come up and see her for the first time. Perhaps he hadn’t anticipated me, but the latte was a nice touch!

I then high-tailed my way to Hampton Court House to meet with Jeremy and document the guest arrivals, while waiting for the bridesmaids and bride.

Caroline made her grand entrance before we the start of the lovely ceremony in the absolutely stunning galleried hallway, with fantastic natural light streaming in from Bushy Park next door.

Everyone made their way outside to form a line up – not confetti, but bubbles, which worked really well as the bride and groom made their way out!

This was followed by drinks and canapes in the lovely warm sunshine on the front lawn of Hampton Court House.

I took Caroline and Jeremy back into the house for some natural light shots in various locations.

A quick dash downstairs to the amazing red dining room (complete with black and white checkerboard floor) to capture the details, before it was time for the guests to be seated and the bride and groom to make their entrance.

After Caroline and Jeremy had finished their main course, we quickly grabbed a few more portraits.

It was soon time to move onto the speeches – as always, a great mixture of emotional moments!

Once the speeches had finished, the guests made their way out into the lovely evening sunshine to enjoy their drinks, whilst being entertained by the amazing magician Maximillian Somerset (Max Magic) who you may recognise from various TV shows. I’m always amazed by magicians, but this guy was something else! Very funny watching him pickpocket the bestman’s watch from his wrist – very obvious from my viewpoint but he was totally oblivious!!

After documenting the goings on, I nipped down to the shell grotto to set up some off camera flashes for a couple of quick portraits of the bride and groom, before making my way around the house. As the weather was so fantastic it was great that the guests had spread out with some enjoying a civilised croquet on the lawn.

After the cutting of the cake it was time for the first dance, followed by some serious dancing to the fantastic band!

Night-time venue shot in the bag, it was time for me to pack up and head back to Kent.
