Down Hall Wedding Photos by Matt Heath Photography-039On Saturday I had the pleasure of returning to Down Hall Country House to photograph the wedding of Hayley and Dom on what was yet another hot day! Not complaining mind, it was beautiful:)I started the day with Hayley and her bridesmaids whilst they were making preparations and having hair and make up done, I have to say it was all rather calm…. perfect! The ceremony was beautiful with some lovely readings which was followed by a steel band! The glorious weather meant everyone got to enjoy the sun for the reception drinks and of course made it easy for the group photos on the lawn! We of course had a wonder around the grounds for some portraits and were lucky enough to have a great sky which was perfect for my more dramatic portrait as seen above. A superb meal put on by the Down Hall team was followed by fantastic speeches and they even had the Chocolate Buffet Company putting on a spread for the evening! Looked amazing! The day was perfectly kept on track by Mark GreatBatch their toastmaster, who I highly recommend, he really goes to every length to ensure his bride and grooms have the perfect day and proved to be a great help. They both clearly had the time of their lives!

I had a lovely day photographing Hayley and Dom’s wedding, an absolute pleasure,  if you are planning a wedding at Down Hall or anywhere else, please get in touch via the contact page

Saturday I was at Down Hall in Hertfordshire for the wedding of Elaine and Chris, certainly cant complain about the weather , it was a scorcher! Even if the weather man did predict storms at 4pm, he was wrong! What can I say, such a fun, relaxed day for Elaine, Chris and their guests with never a dull moment, from releasing doves, an exceptional performance from Soprano Bella and even a bit of Mr + Mrs! All in all a fantastic day, some great suppliers come together to help make their day special, lovely flowers provided by Gracie Day, Soprano Bella singing waiters in disguise and evening entertainment by Lovelight, not to mention the superb staff at Down Hall and Mark Greatbatch their toastmaster who as usual kept everything running smoothly!

Here are just a few pics from the day….

On Friday I met up with Claire and Alex for their pre wedding photos at Great Hallingbury Manor, after a good catch up we had a short walk around the grounds for some photos, they will be tying the knot in September and it promises to be a fun and relaxed day so I cant wait! Whilst te main purpose of these sessions is to give them a chance to get in front of the camera before the big day, they didn’t really need it! They will do just fine!

Nancy and Grant will be getting married in August at the beautiful Down Hall in Hertfordshire, so we met up to go through their plans for the day whilst taking the opportunity for a few photographs, all my clients get these sessions simply so that come the big day they have already worked with me which helps settle any photo nerves, also as a bonus one of these images gets printed and presented in a large 6″ signing mount for their guests to sign at their reception, always goes down well! great to see them both again, great fun couple so look forward to the big day!

Hatfield House Wedding photos by Matt Heath-021

Sarah and Mark were recently married at the beautiful St Etheldreda in Old Hatfield and had their wedding reception at Hatfield House, a stunning estate with so much history. I started the day at Sarah’s home to capture some of the preparations before heading to the church to catch up with the guys and await Sarah’s arrival.

The ceremony was beautiful and the joy on their faces plain to see, afterwards we quickly got the group shots done as the weather looked as if it could turn any minute, but it was kind and we got to make use of the stunning gardens for their wedding portraits, perfect!

Great food followed (very very good lamb), finished off by some fantastic speeches, I left just after 1st dance as the party was getting under way!

All in all a lovely day and a pleasure to be a part of!

Here are a few from the day…
