Countryside wedding Hertfordshire of Samantha and Grant
The idyllic Hertfordshire countryside was the perfect location for the mesmerising and fun-filled wedding of Samantha and Grant. Starting with the wedding ceremony in the picturesque village church of Holy Cross, St Andrew’s Church in Much Hadham, it was the perfect location for wedding videography and the ideal fairytale wedding.
The wedding ceremony
As a cinematographer for the wedding, I want to capture every single element of the church service, from the bell ringers signifying wedding celebrations to the beautiful convertible vintage Bentleys used for the wedding cars. The traditional church was immaculately presented, and as wedding guests filled the church, it was a service that celebrated true friendship and love. The bride’s triumphant celebration as Samantha and Grant walked down the aisle as husband and wife was a further sign that this was a wedding filled with laughter and joy.
The wedding venue
After the ceremony and the confetti was thrown, it was time for the wedding party to make their way to the beautiful country house for the wedding breakfast which just so happened to be the home of Samantha’s parents. The fabulous country home was the ideal location with plenty of space and with the lovely, homely, personal touch that ensures the happy couple can relive their magical wedding day whenever they visit.
The wedding breakfast
The celebrations continued with a drinks reception in the garden. Guests had an opportunity to take in the location and catch up with friends while being entertained by a band. It was a joy to film as guests milled and children played. It was then time for guests to make their way to the marquee for the wedding breakfast. The room was beautifully decorated with tables complete with flower arrangements and candles.
After the breakfast, the groom, Grant, made a funny, heart-warming speech. He shared the funny memory of the couple’s first kiss. Hiding behind the house in case her father saw. With guests laughing, he made sure that the wedding was serious too. There was barely a dry eye in the room as he declared; ‘I love you so much and will do until the day I die’.
Once dinner was eaten, and the stunning many-tiered cake was cut, it was time to clear the way for the dancefloor. Guests were not only treated to three opera singers and a full band, but the wedding also featured a Lionel Richie and Whitney Houston cover artist. With so many catchy tunes and a fabulous atmosphere, it was no surprise that the dancefloor quickly filled with people making the most of the music and revelling in the joy of the newlywed couple.
Thinking of everything, the wedding also featured a basket of comfy shoes for guests to use if their feet got too sore from dancing too much. For wedding cinematography, the jam-packed dancefloor was the perfect place to get action shots of the fun, laughter and love that was shared and was the ideal end to a fantastic wedding day.
