Lauren and Sunny got married at the amazing Henry Moore Studios in Perry Green, not far from Bishop’s Stortford. It was a stunning wedding in every respect, with so much colour everywhere, incredible décor, beautiful outfits and delicious food, not to mention the amazing backdrop of Henry Moore’s stunning artworks.
After spending some time with the girls getting ready in the morning, it was time to head over to the venue. It looked gorgeous in the sunshine, and the couple had paid incredible attention to detail when decorating the venue with marigold garlands, umbrellas and other Indian themed décor to celebrate Sunny’s heritage.
The ceremony iself took place in the aisled barn, and Lauren was sung down the aisle by one of the couples friends, which was lovely. It was all very emotional and Sunny was brought to tears at the sight of Lauren walking down the aisle looking so incredible in her Mori Lee dress.
The drinks reception
After the ceremony, the couple were showered with an explosion of colourful confetti, I got some really special photos. The weather was all sunshine and blue skies, it was a stunning day, and we spent a little while taking some quick formal photos in the shade of the trees whilst the guests mingled and enjoyed canapés.
The wedding breakfast and speeches
The wedding breakfast was held back in the main barn and the couple were announced in to lots of cheers and clapping. The meal was delicious, and was followed by some hilarious speeches which everyone loved.
Soon after the speeches, the guests moved back outside for more drinks in the tipi and the party got started. I stole the couple away for a short walk across the field to see the reclining figure statue by Henry Moore, just in time for a perfect sunset. It was a shot that I’d had in mind right from the first time I’d ever worked at this gorgeous venue and I was delighted that the weather played ball and allowed me to capture some stunning images for the couple in amazing golden light.
As the evening continued, Lauren and Sunny had provided marigold garlands, bangles and bindis for the ladies to add to the colour and fusion theme of the day. The DJ played all the best songs to get everyone dancing, including some fantastic Indian tunes and the dance-floor was absolutely buzzing.
The evening ended with a fabulous outdoor buffet of both pizzas and Indian street food which delicious, and everyone had a great time. The whole wedding was so much fun, from the beautiful colours to the incredible sunset and packed dance floor.
“Becky blended into the day so well it felt like she was just a friend of ours who happened to be taking photos along the way.”
I loved this fusion wedding so much. If you’re getting married and looking for a wedding photographer, get in touch.
