Nicole & Stephen
The wedding of Nicole & Stephen at Chartridge Lodge in Chesham - 17th September
As soon as I met Nicole and Stephen I knew we were going to have a giggle on their wedding day. They were both lovely and laid back with Stephen putting a strong ban on any 'cringey or cheesy shots' which I loved. The wedding took place at the lovely Chartridge Lodge in Chesham in the middle of September.
Nicole and her bridesmaids got ready for the wedding in the venue's library - a beautiful, warmly decorated room full of wonderful furniture and artefacts. This might sound strange, but this is actually one of my favourites rooms I've ever photographed a bride getting ready in. The lighting, colours, furniture and space made for some really beautiful and rich photos. The grounds of the lodge were just as inviting for photographs and we were able to get some really lovely shots around the mini lake that was there.
The highlight of the day (apart from the Krispy Kreme Donut Tower wedding cake!!!) had to be in the evening when Nicole and her hen party girls surprised the other guests by performing a choreographed dance to Abba's 'Dancing Queen'. It was hilarious and everyone loved it. It was a perfect end to a fabulously fun and happy day. I loved meeting Nicole and Stephen and it was an absolute pleasure to be their wedding photographer.
