Beth and George were married at St Nicholas Church in Harpenden, Hertfordshire, followed by a reception at North Hill Farm in Rickmansworth.

Beth and I first met several years ago when I was moving out of home and she rented me the infamous nightmare flat I lived in for my first independent eighteen months. While that may not have been the greatest experience, meeting Beth was a delight and we bonded over a love of impractical period features and the wedding industry – Beth used to be a florist. It’s hard to put into words how glorious this wedding was, or how welcome Beth, George, their families and friends made me feel!

Beth and George have a lot of talented friends! While Beth clearly had a lot of input on the flowers, these were put together by a friend; the beautiful cake was made by George’s Mum; his brother serenaded guests throughout both the ceremony and reception (including a rendition of ‘happy birthday’ during the speeches) and one of Beth’s school friends did all of the ladies hair. I think he deserves a special mention for doing all of this with one of his legs in a cast balanced precariously on cushions! And then there’s Beth and George themselves, who put together so much of the day by hand! George makes his own comics so there was a heavy comic influence here, beautifully incorporated into their order of services, which included the illustrated story of their relationship and proposal! Not to mention the most beautiful superhero theme I’ve ever seen! Each table was named after a different superhero and the table runners were made of comic strips that guests could colour in themselves! When someone says “superhero wedding” I’m sure it doesn’t look as elegant in your head as this absolutely stunning wedding!

When we arrived at North Hill Farm in Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire there was an ice cream van waiting, with some of the most delicious ice cream I’ve ever had (triple chocolate!!). As well as a “Pimp your Prosecco” tent, which is something I’ve never seen before, but, I hope I do again! Later in the evening, as the campfire was fired up, a fish and chip van served as the evening buffet. Just perfect. My final shots were of Beth and her bridesmaids dancing in a field in special bridal party wellies, which summed up the day for me – lots of giggles and a whole lot of fun.

Fiona and Jake were married at Clissold House in Stoke Newington, London. Clissold House is set inside Clissold Park, so our couple photos took us on a little wander through everyone’s weekend at the park. This included a very sweet serenade by some kids passing by on bikes. I do love how everyone gets in the spirit of a wedding the moment they see someone in a wedding dress. Just look at the giggles during the couple shots – I had so much fun with Fiona and Jake!

I absolutely loved Fiona’s outfit, her very elegant pinky glittery dress and then those shoes! Amazing! Although, I have a suspicion that Fiona didn’t much enjoy wearing them as she held off putting them on until the very last moment.

Usually once all the group shots are taken, I slip off for a few minutes to take photos of the room before guests sit down. When I walked into this room my first thought was, “it smells like Lush in here!” Definitely not a bad thing! And then it all became clear, Fiona works at Lush and included some limited edition shower gels for everyone which smelled divine! At each seat there was also a blank canvas, ready for guests to draw a little representation of the day and then trade. Oh and as everyone took their seats for the wedding breakfast they got sorted into Hogwarts houses with some little house badges! The Harry Potter geek in me was very happy at this wedding! There were also some other little Harry Potter touches; heart garlands made from pages from the books and some sly quotes slipped into the speeches.

I love a low-key wedding, all of Jake and Fiona’s guests were seated at one big table, so it felt very intimate. In the evening they had casino games for everyone to get involved with (I think I may finally understand roulette after hearing the rules be explained to five separate guests) and a very DIY laptop style DJ set.

Hertfordshire Wedding Photography Albums (1)I finally got around to photographing my new wedding photography albums. If you’ve met with me lately, you’ve probably already seen these. I am so in love with them!

All my packages come with your high resolution images on a USB stick as standard, however, there’s something so special about seeing your favourites printed out, in an album that just feels substantial and like an heirloom in the making.

These fine art books come with a variety of fabric cover options, presented in a lovely cotton bag inside a craft presentation box. The albums are printed on fine art white paper, with a gorgeous matte finish (seriously, it’s lovely to stroke!), made from sustainable sources. Your images are presented on double spreads, the pages lay flat, with an invisible crease to allow your photos to stretch across two pages seamlessly.

Your albums are designed by me, with an understanding of how the day unfolded I’m ideally situated to tell the story of your day.  You get to see your layout proof and make changes before the final print is approved.

10% Off Wedding Albums Offer

To celebrate these gorgeous new albums, I’m offering a 10% discount on any albums ordered until 30th April. So, if you’re thinking of booking now, or I’ve already photographed your wedding and you’re itching to see them in print, pop me an email at hannah@hannahmia.com to order!
