What a fantastic wedding venue Fetcham Park is! This was my first time photographing at the Grade II listed country house, and I was really looking forward to it for Sally and Chris' winter wedding. Though the house is over 300 years old, the newly refurbished interior has all the elegance and class needed for a stylish wedding party. But before I got to the house, I started with Sally's bridal preparations at home a few miles away.
Andre was in full swing getting Sally's hair and makeup ready as I arrived. The atmosphere was calm, and there were some great moments to photograph as Sally and her sister got ready. I particularly liked using the Fuji XT-1 with the ultra wide 12mm lens to make some split composition images with Sally and the dress in one room while other family members were in the kitchen.
Next stop was The Plough at Effingham where Chris and the guys had joined some early wedding guests for a quick drink before the ceremony at Our Lady of Sorrows Church. The wind had started to pick up a little at this point promising for a breezy exit from the church for the newly weds after the ceremony. The ceremony itself had a lovely moment when the couple jointly lit a unity candle, before the exit into the anticipated weather.
Fetcham Park itself was very welcoming, with the guests all cosily enjoying pre dinner drinks as the couple made an entrance down the impressive stairs. Those stairs would make a fine setting after the meal for the rest of the wedding speeches before the party continued on the dance floor.
