I met Sam + Mat a while back when I shot their pre-wedding session at Doddington Hall. You can see that shoot here!
I was excited to revisit Hemswell Court. I like to go back to venues I’ve shot at before. It helps me get creative.
I enjoyed spending the morning with Sam, her bridesmaids and flower girl. It was all very calm. Until they had to figure out how to tie a cravat for the father of the brides suit. It’s a good thing Youtube has an extensive collection of how to videos. Sam was surprised with a Rolls-Royce as her wedding car to Hemswell Court.
Arriving at the venue I’m greeted by Mat, who is calm and collected.
After the formalities of saying “I do” comes the next nerve racking part of the day. The speeches! The Best Man’s speech really stuck with me. The Best Man is Mat’s brother. He produced a projector and screen for some visual cues. He told his speech in the fashion of the old TV show ‘This is your life‘ and it truly made Mat squirm. He told of how Mat’s music taste had changed from Lamb of God and Slipknot to Peppa Pig! And also showed some of Mat’s choice of hair cuts throughout the years.
Anyway that’s enough from me. I’ll let the images tell the rest of the story.
