At the end of April I had a lot of fun photographing Georgie and Matt's gorgeous wedding at the amazing Kentwell Hall in Long Melford, Suffolk.
I met Georgie at her home in Chelmsford, where she was getting ready with her sister, brother-in-law and niece, who'd just flown in from Australia. It was a lovely relaxed morning and so nice to capture the fabulous Verity of the Vanity Box at work. Verity is a fantastic hair and makeup artist specialising in vintage looks, and I'm very lucky to have her as my own hairdresser too!
We then headed over to Kentwell Hall where both the ceremony and reception were being held. I knew it was going to be an incredible venue to photograph from my first contact with them - when I called to arrange a visit before the big day I was warned there would be Tudors in the hall! I wasn't disappointed - their recreations are brilliant and well worth a visit!
They were then able to relax and catch up with friends and family in Kentwell's historic rooms, before heading back to the hall for the speeches. All the speeches were fantastic, but I particularly enjoyed the Best Man's powerpoint presentation on the history of the Groom's haircuts - an excellent idea and certainly entertaining!
Everyone then headed over to the Overcroft for dinner and the evening entertainment. It's a lovely room and felt so warm, lit beautifully with fairy lights and decorated with Adele's gorgeous flowers.
The first dance was 'Your Arms Around Me' by Jens Lekman - I hadn't heard this before but it was so perfect - lovely and romantic but fun too!
The evening entertainment was SO much fun! One Night Standeoke are a bandaoke band - like karaoke, but singing along to a real live band rather than a backing track, so you're pretty much a rockstar for the night (well, for a song, at least!). All the guests were amazing and got really into their performances and dancing along. I had so much fun photographing the night and really enjoyed the performances too! I'd definitely recommend them for a party to remember.

It was such a pleasure to work with everyone on such a beautiful day! Thank you so much to everyone, and to Georgie and Matt for asking me to photograph their day.
