I wonder what made her laugh?

So first dances can often be a little contentious with bride and groom fretting about their dance moves in advance of the big evening event.  What I love about these two, is that despite their nerves they did indeed relax and enjoy it… I love this photo of Katie laughing out loud; it’s just so warm and funny.   Lovely setting at Ashridge House too in the beautiful dance room.

Evening sunlight on my bride, Ashridge House

Katie is a stunning girl, but what gets photographer’s so excited is the golden hour when the sun is just coming down to set for the night…Oh my, that’s when I literally feel my camera tingle!  Look how lovely her hair is as the sun just highlights behind her  – a lovely girl on her wedding day made even more beautiful by the evening sun – aaaah bliss!

My office today – Ashridge House

One of the best parts about being a photographer is spending a morning checking out a wedding venue for September 1st!   I have actually longed to get a wedding here and this year finally I got a booking yay!!!!

To say Ashridge House is stunning would be an understatement – breathtaking, peaceful, stunning would be more apt.  I spent about two hours here in utter heaven.  Not a soul in sight.  The building is beautiful inside and out.  The staircase where the ceremony will be held is honestly amazing.. The light fantastic.   I literally can’t wait for Katie & Daniel’s wedding in three months time.
