St Albans Register Office Wedding Photography
Brigitta emailed me a couple of weeks before their wedding. Kieran is a rugby player and moving back to their native Australia in a few weeks, so, they planned a very last minute wedding at St Albans Register Office with some photos after.
You may notice from the pictures that there is an extra special guest at this wedding – Slinky, the sausage dog. I’m not sure how overly thrilled he was to be there, but, I would love it if there was a dog at every wedding I covered!
After the ceremony, Brigitta and Kieran’s guests headed off to the pub, while we went off for some photos. We had discussed Sopwell Nunnery, which I think is such a lovely and underrated photo location in St Albans. They very wisely brought some very fetching wellies with them. By the time I got home my feet were squelching in my shoes, so, I was very jealous.
Brigitta had her heart set on some photos featuring blossom, but, our strange snowy spring made this a bit of a challenge. We decided to then head to Verulamium Park because I love the willow trees down there. While there, we also found this beautiful white bush, which I think is lovely. You’d never know we were stomping around in the mud and fog!
I am very much in love with Brigitta’s floral wedding dress! She had originally not planned on having flowers at all, but, her hairdresser talked her into it at the last minute and put together her buttonholes. Her sister also had a bouquet delivered to her as a surprise. This featured some Australian flowers to remind her of home. Both Kieran and Brigitta wore matching white Converse, with ‘wife’ and ‘husband’ written on the back. I loved this cute little touch and I’m always a fan on a bride in flats.
Usually I have a lot longer to get to know my couples and spend the whole day with them. But, even in the few hours I got to spend with Brigitta and Kieran (and Slinky), I had so much fun.
