Stephanie and Will: Where do you start when you come from opposite sides of the world, live in a foreign country and want to plan a wedding? You start with Instagram, of course! And that’s just what Stephanie did. One phone call later and the wedding photographer was booked (that would be us, of course!) to a beautiful wedding at the heart of Hertfordshire!
An Australian girl walked in to a London pub…no, this isn’t the start of a pub joke but rather, of Stephanie and Will’s real-life love story. While this couple lives in one of the most romantic cities in the world, it was no comparison to the familiarity of Will’s home that won out when deciding where to have their wedding, a beautiful farm at the heart of Hertfordshire.
They took a break from their busy life in Paris when they invited their family and friends from around the world to join them on their wedding day. Thankfully we were there to capture the story and share it with you!
Leaving the buzz of the City of Light behind, Stephanie and Will choose an outdoor setting in the peaceful countryside. We started the day with the beautiful bride at Anstey Grove Barn.
The I Do’s
The ceremony and reception were held at Will’s family home in Molescroft. Another beautiful moment would be added to the photo album of family memories! Perhaps there was a little stress about the unpredictable English weather but if so, it was all for nothing because the day was sunny and warm! This seemed to us to be a reflection of the happiness of the bride, groom and all of the guests! Everywhere we turned to snap a picture, we found another smiling face. A photographer’s dream!!!
A highlight of the ceremony was when Will’s brother played the piano and serenaded the couple with a rendition of Your Song by Elton John.
Our team included a videographer which allowed us to fully capture all the moments of the day. What we loved most, which was how at ease Stephanie and Will are with one another. Their love is genuine and natural.
A huge thank you to Will and Stephanie for inviting us to be a part of this unforgettable day! We truly wish you all the best in all your life’s adventures together!
