    I was lucky enough to shoot Hetty and Nick’s engagement shoot in London. They must have liked this because they’ve asked me to shoot their wedding in Bath area as well. The setting this time was the village of Biddestone. This stunning part of the country is always a delight to shoot.

    On the day I arrived early at La Casetta in Bath. This beautiful villa has been stunningly renovated and decorated by Hetty’s mother.
    The house which was set in beautiful gardens was flooded with natural light. It gave me the chance to take some great shots of Hetty and her wedding party as they made their final preparations. There was lots of love, laughter and a little bubbly to help things along!

    Meanwhile, in Biddestone, Lizzie was shooting Nick and his groom’s party who were in fine form and getting ready at Manor Farm. Maurice was playing host and quickly put himself on tea duty. Once ready, the party enjoyed a hearty brunch. Then it was off to St Nicholas Church for the ceremony.

    The church of St Nicholas is a beautiful medieval church that serves the village of Biddestone. The Reverend, who performed the service, is Nick’s aunt. Can you see the pattern? All in the family.

    Hetty arrived with her father in the most beautiful vintage car (Maurice having stepped down from teas and taking on the role of chauffeur). Hetty looked stunning. The lace detail and cut of her dress gave her the most exquisite silhouette. She was the essence of effortless understated beauty and really suited being a bride.

    Unfortunately, because the church is so tiny and quiet, I was not allowed to shoot during the ceremony. From the choir, I still managed to take the shots of the key elements of the ceremony.

    After the ceremony, I managed to get some shots of Hetty and Nick exiting the church and a few shots outside (including a confetti shot). Did you notice that everyone is so happy?

    The couple left in the vrooming Bentley and everybody headed to nearby Manor Farm for the reception.

    The reception was in a spacious and bright marquee in the grounds of Manor Farm (Maurice’s home). You can tell from the images that this couple comes from an artistic family and this was evident in the details at their wedding. Hetty’s mother had decorated the venue giving it a timeless vintage feel. The table maps were made up of guests polaroid photos hanging on strings. There were handy pegs on the inside of the marquee so hats could be hung and displayed. My favourite touch was the hand-painted menus.

    After a sumptuous wedding breakfast and some very well received speeches, there was the cutting of a gorgeous cake. Evening entertainment was a live band with Nick’s dad on guitar! They started with a romantic first dance where Hetty and Nick were quickly joined by their loved ones. As the sun dropped the marquee was beautifully lit for the evening with a fire pit just outside to keep guests warm. It was this image of everybody happily partying inside that I chose as my closing shot before taking my leave.
