This weekend was simply AMAZING. I had the absolute pleasure of photographing Sophie and Andy’s incredible wedding at the Hanbury Manor Marriott Hotel in Hertfordshire. Planning a wedding in the midst of a pandemic cannot be an easy task and with the rules and guidelines around weddings continuously changing, these two did an EPIC job of pulling off such a beautiful and memorable day.
I was blown away when I saw Sophie's stunning Nicole Milano dress and the veil by Unveiled by Sophie really was spectacular. The detailing on both pieces is insane! Sophie looked stunning even before she'd had her make up done. Andy is definitely one lucky man. When she put the dress on, she looked jaw-droppingly stunning. Honestly- WOW.
Sophie and Andy had an Orthodox wedding which was so beautiful and a very special ceremony. They were also lucky enough to have one of those gorgeous sunny September days that are beautifully bright yet not too hot. What more could you ask for?!
After the ceremony we headed back the the Hanbury Manor Marriott Hotel for the drinks reception and some gorgeous photos of the newlyweds in the stunning grounds surrounding the hotel. The venue really is quite spectacular and I was overwhelmed with all the locations available that would make great backdrops for photos.
Here is just a snippet of the story of Sophie and Andy's wedding day...
Some kind words from the couple themselves:
"Andy and I just wanted to say thank you SOOOOOOO much for everything yesterday, you and Emma were absolutely incredible and so amazing at your jobs. We are so grateful for how flexible you were on the day and how you made us and all of our guests feel completely at ease. We all had so much fun with you! We’re so happy we chose you as our photographer."
