Having previously met with Helen and Alex at Huntsham Court we knew we were going to love photographing their wedding, the location is stunning and a beautiful backdrop to a classic English wedding.
The wedding day weather was tentative with sunny spells mixed with the typical english drizzle. I mention this as the ceremony was held outdoors, a first for Huntsham Court. As a result there were a lot of glances through the windows to keep check on the weather. Luckily, the crossed fingers worked and they met beautiful sunshine as Helen walked down the aisle with her bridesmaids and children.
The whole day was beautifully relaxed and fun, the weather holding on for the most part and with a bouncy castle to keep the kids occupied and a flow of champagne for the adults no one cared about that anyway. Friends and family mingled and laughed in the gardens, while having group shots and catching up with friends, later things moved on to the wedding breakfast for some emotional and fun speeches, along with Alex being suitable embarrassed by his best man.
A live band played for everyone in the evening while we snuck Helen and Alex out for a couple photo or two before heading back in for more dancing.
Overall, their wedding day was exactly as they had hoped; Fun, family, relaxed and in a beautiful setting with great people.
