Stunning Down Hall Country House Hotel, Hatfield Heath, Hertfordshire Wedding. Sarah & Ben

Sarah & Ben had their lovely wedding at Down Hall Country House Hotel not far from Hatfield Heath in Hertfordshire. It was such an beautiful location for their wedding, amongst one of our favorites.

The house was incredible, we couldn’t believe our eyes when we walked in, an opulent Italian style mansion built in 1322. Today it is modern, yet still retains all of it’s vintage charm, what a great place to photograph a wedding.

Sarah & Ben had planned their day meticulously down to the last detail and were so happy to be getting married. The wedding party were great to spend the day with, and the celebration and fun of friends and family that will be remembered for a long time.

Autumn weddings in the Garden of England

Autumn brides can take advantage of beautiful light and stunning scenery

Marilyn Monroe once described herself as a “warm, red autumn” and, on a gorgeous sunny day like yesterday was, it’s easy to see the appeal of the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness.

It may come third after spring and summer in terms of popularity as a wedding season, but there are plenty of positives to be found in the cooler, crisper days of September, October and November.

Brides can take inspiration from the rich reds, oranges and golden hues and there are still plenty of flowers to choose from if you want to bring back memories of sultry summer days.

There will be less stressing about the weather, so you can plan for a rainy day but enjoy the sunshine if you are blessed with it.

Fewer people will be on holiday so more of those you care about are likely to be able to attend, and flights and hotels are likely to be less expensive so you could save money on your honeymoon – and avoid hordes of holidaymakers at the same time.

From a photographer’s point of view, the autumn light is just beautiful and, as sunset is earlier, there is more chance of stunning romantic shots without adding hours to the package. And darker evenings lend themselves to open fires and candles which can also make for some incredible images you’ll want to treasure forever.

You may not be able to show off a picture of the bridal party in a perfectly manicured garden full of summer blooms, but imagine instead your little bridesmaids (or even grown-up ones!) kicking up fallen leaves or with bouquets of berries.

Here in Kent, we are known as the Garden of England and with good reason, so why not take advantage of that and use the abundance of fruits in your wedding? From table decorations to delicious crumble, there’s a place for everything from apples to pumpkins if you so desire.

And your guests may thank you for it as they can add tights and jackets to their wedding outfits without fear of spending the day looking like a hot sweaty mess.

In short, we love autumn weddings in Kent – and we’d love to talk to you if you are planning one!

How to stay cool on your wedding day

wedding photographer kent-1234Most brides want the clouds to stay away for their wedding day, but is there such a thing as too much sunshine?

Perhaps, if you want to avoid looking hot and bothered in your wedding photographs!

It may not seem like a priority if you’re planning a ceremony in the UK, as the British summer is not exactly known for its scorching temperatures. But heatwaves are possible, even here in Kent, so we’ve put together some tips to help you stay cool on your big day.

As with most things, preparation is key. If you’re planning a summer wedding, pick a venue that will offer you and your guests areas that are out of the sun. Air conditioning inside is always a winner, or the thick stone walls of an old church or historic venue. If you’re planning on spending a lot of time outside, trees will provide natural shade, or consider marquees with fans to provide respite from the heat.

It would be unwise to pick a heavy velvet dress for a summer wedding, so think about floatier fabrics and a looser fit – it can still be fitted, and lace-up styles are ideal because they can be adjusted throughout the day. Grooms may want to bring an extra shirt to change into before the reception if it is forecast to be very warm.

This is the perfect opportunity for your bridesmaids to play an important role in the day – and not just by standing around fanning you, although that would be perfect too! But they can also keep you well-supplied with water and keep an eye on any guests who look like they may be flagging.

If you’re working with a professional make-up artist, they will be able to advise you on the best way to keep your make-up in place by using a good base. Adding an extra supply of tissues to your bridal bag is a good idea too, to blot away shine as well as any happy tears.

It’s also a great opportunity to show off your creative side – perhaps the programmes or menus could be printed on fans, or you could come up with a range of alcohol-free iced cocktails, or place bottles of water at each table setting for guests to spritz themselves with.

You could even embrace the summer holiday vibe and add some water play into the day – water slides, water balloons or paddling pools could be great fun if you’re planning a laid-back celebration and will make some really fun photographs. But just make sure you’ve taken all the formal photos you want before you get stuck in!
