Melanie was getting ready at her parent’s house in Potters Bar so I started with some natural wedding photographs of the bride getting ready before I headed over to meet up with Dave and the guys. The majority of the day was photographed using a documentary approach – most wedding photography has to be this way as you are capturing what happens round you, rather than staging photographs- though once we were at the venue, I took the bride and groom off for some beautiful wedding photographs at Hatfield House. The gardens are fabulous and the main house at Hatfield House and the fountain make for a fantastic backdrop for wedding photographs. The rest of the day was photographed with a reportage wedding photography approach as I documented the reception, (in glorious sunshine!) the speeches, evening reception, cake cutting and first dance.
