Saturday was my final wedding of 2017! I can’t believe this year has gone so fast. I have shot 29 incredible weddings and now the countdown begins until baby arrives… with rather a lot of editing in the mean time!
So on Saturday I headed to one of my all time favourite venues, the stunning Holkham Hall for the wedding of Harry and Maddi. I met them several months ago for their engagement shoot and we had such a lovely day, they were so much fun and so relaxed, I knew their wedding would be just gorgeous!
Well what a way to finish my 2017 wedding season this was… incredible venue, one of the most unusual wedding dresses I have ever seen, beautiful details (loved the bridesmaids dresses!), lots of sunshine, a VERY yummy 3 course meal and Maddi and Harry surrounded by their wonderful friends and family who made me feel like part of the day.
I met Maddi in the morning getting ready at the Ancient House (part of the Victoria) with her mum and bridesmaids and was blown away as she got into her incredible full lace dress. I headed over to the boys at The Victoria getting ready and having a glass of champers and everyone including Harry seemed pretty relaxed about the day ahead!
Up at the Hall the guests had started to arrive and gather in the Statue Gallery where their ceremony would take place and Maddi arrived with her Dad in a beautiful vintage car.
They had a beautiful ceremony with 2 gorgeous readings followed by confetti in the marble hall. We then headed out for a few group photos before heading up to my favourite view of Holkham at the top of the hill.
Back at the Lady Elizabeth wing the guests gathered and cheered as they arrived and they had a little time with their guests before heading in for an amazing dinner by the awesome Julie Abbs Catering.
After dinner cake was served and they headed for the dance floor for their fabulous choreographed first dance with their guests gathered round!
As usual I have so many images I can’t wait to share from this beautiful day but for now here are my favourite five moments…
Huge thank you to Nerida, Laura and the Holkham staff for looking after me so well and to Tristan for my amazing meal its been such a pleasure working with you all so much this year. Big thank you to Harry and Maddi for making my final wedding of the year a truly incredible one, I can’t wait to share the rest of the photos!
