A hot, summer’s wedding

Nerrisa and Jason held their Hampton Court House wedding on a very hot day in mid-June. It was a very calm and glamorous day, a stones throw away from Hampton Court itself. The day had such a relaxed vibe and was yet very classy, which made for a fantastic day for everyone.

The couple chose this venue for their Hampton Court House wedding, for the elegant design inside, and the tropical garden outside on the patio. Everyone had the space to access different views and it was a great mix. During the day, the Grand Hall was used for the ceremony, before the guests moved to the stunning Victorian picture gallery for the wedding breakfast. The 10m high ceilings and decadent red walls really made for an elegant backdrop. The conservatory was used for the cake cutting, first dance and the remainder of the evening – it’s such an enchanting and romantic space. I just adore this venue!

Hampton Court House overlooks one of London’s largest royal parks and is a grade 2 listed, 18th century building. It’s located on the edge of a bushy park in London’s borough of Richmond. During the week it is a independent private school, but does weddings at the weekends. It’s also been used for photoshoots and music videos for the likes of bands such as Oasis, Twiggy, Kasabian and Leona Lewis – to name a few – how cool to say you were married here?

A bubble shot!

A Hampton Court House wedding doesn’t allow confetti, so we had a bubble shot instead! This was really magical, and although the bubbles themselves are quite hard to see in the photos, it was a special moment for the couple.

For the portraits we went for a walk around the gardens. I always ask my couples to be themselves and this wasn’t hard for Nerissa and Jason at all. Nerrisa is such a happy go lucky character and is always smiling anyway, in fact I got the impression she was trying her hardest not to burst into laughter during the ceremony! Jason is a very relaxed and chilled out guy – they’re gorgeous together! These were a couple that didn’t need much direction. I cracked a few terrible jokes, which got them laughing. It hurts to say it, but it was more them laughing at me, than with me! What can I say? I’m a photographer, not a comedian!

Hampton Court House wedding

For evening portraits, we were told we were not allowed into the Royal Park, which the house backs onto. This was for insurance purposes as they have wild deer roaming. The park was too stunning to miss however, so when the house manager wasn’t looking we snuck across. With the lovely evergreen ferns visible, we just had to get out there. It seemed inevitable, due to our cheekiness, that we stumbled across a herd of stags. It was amazing as we literally got within a couple of meters of them and luckily they were so friendly! In fact, Jason wanted to stroke one, but thankfully Nerrissa convinced him otherwise!

This for me had to be my favourite part of the day. Nerissa and Jason had said they booked me for my sunset photos, but unfortunately, mother nature dictated a different sort of evening. I wanted to take a picture of something looking epic and the shot of them in the ferns did it for me. I also experimented with some double exposure shots which I’ve included below. This is currently one of my most popular Instagram photos! After all of this adventuring, we snuck back in and went to the front of Hampton Court House for a handful more photographs.
