Haileybury Wedding Photographer | Bob Owen Photography Ltd
Haileybury in Hertfordshire was the venue for Michelle and Christopher’s Wedding.
Our initial meetings had been difficult as Michelle’s medical career had demanded examinations at the highest level and Chris had been kept busy in Yorkshire at the family home.
Michelle was an alumni of Haileybury and so with such a prestigious school chapel at her disposal, nearly traveling back down to Hertfordshire from Leeds was never going to an issue for them. Michelle was hyper-organised, so nothing was left to chance, including me as their Haileybury wedding photographer.
Neither Michelle or Christopher wanted their day to be about stale family groups or awkward portrait sessions, so chose me as their wedding photographer. I specialise in being a witness to the day and neither setting up or orchestrating things or people. I do shoot enthusiastically throughout the day however, making sure I capture all the people present, naturally and candidly. You can see other examples of my work here. Michelle and Chris ordered a superb Queensberry wedding album following their day which displayed their preference for black and white wedding photography.
Sometimes it’s not deemed appropriate for the wedding photographer to be at the front or anywhere near the ceremony. I always think this is shame as there are always great emotional moments during that time. However, I’m always respectful of that decision (it’s not my day after all) and will happily work within any restrictions on the day. It’s always a good idea to have this conversation with your officient before the ceremony to make sure what is, and is not, allowed. Sometimes photographers are told different things to the couple on the day, so best to make 100% sure.
If you’re considering Haileybury for your wedding here are somethings to consider
Set in over 500 acres of Hertfordshire countryside, Haileybury‘s grounds are some of the most exquisite and beautiful in Hertford and perfect for a wedding photographer in Hertfordshire like myself. Approximately half the site comprises formal and informal gardens and associated grounds; the remainder being largely woodland.
Here is a small selection from Michelle and Christopher’s Hertfordshire wedding. I hope you enjoy them. If you are interested in my candid style of wedding photography and don’t want to have your day caught up with endless groups and fashion shoot type photography, contact me here today and we can arrange for an informal chat. I’d love to hear about your day and your hopes and aspirations for your wedding photography.
