Danielle and Michael | Down Hall Hotel Wedding Photography
I recently had the pleasure of photographing Danielle and Michael’s wedding at Down Hall Hotel on the Essex / Hertfordshire borders.
It was a beautiful, boutique wedding with all their nearest and dearest family and friends. I arrived at Down Hall, where the bridal preparations were taking place. All of the young bridesmaids were very excited as they were getting their hair, makeup and nails done. Meanwhile, Danielle was extremely calm in her private room.
I caught up with Michael downstairs, who was spending time with some of the guests before the ceremony started. I also took the opportunity to view and photograph the ceremony room and wedding breakfast room.
With the bridesmaids and pageboy leading the way, Danielle’s father proudly walked her down the aisle. There was a brief panic when it appeared that the rings had been left upstairs, but they were quickly found.
After the ceremony, we made the most of the mild weather and made our way outside for some group photographs. My assistant, James, did all the formal family photographs, allowing me the freedom to do some documentary wedding photography.
Up to the Wedding Breakfast
Back inside I took advantage of getting some personal photographs of the couple as we wandered around the house. Down Hall provides plenty of photo opportunities both inside the house and outside.
The guests made their way to the wedding breakfast room ready to greet the newly married Mr. & Mrs.
It was a wonderful day and it was obvious to see just how happy the couple were.
Danielle and Michael, it was a pleasure to photograph your Down hall wedding. I wish you both a fun and an exciting life together
