Berkhamsted Wedding at The Gatsby, Hertfordshire
On the day of Laura and James’s wedding we were having a spat of those heavy summer showers followed by wonderful sunny periods. I crossed my fingers that we could weave our way through it all without getting soaked.
Arriving at Laura’s mum’s house in the morning, all I could hear was the constant laughter. This, I decided, was the key to a great day. Laura had made all the plans, delegated all the tasks. If it rained, then so what? Nothing was going to stop the love, laughter and fun during this wedding.
After some getting ready shots, I made my way down to Berkhamsted Town Hall. Inside it was like stepping back in time 50 years. Stained glass and polished oak made for a classic setting for the ceremony.
James was there laughing and joking and so well supported by his friends. I knew the joking and back slapping would wear off once he was at the front, awaiting Laura.
Guys will always have a ‘moment’ when their bride walks down the aisle and they see her for the first time. I say it’s something to be proud of, even if there’s a tear shed. It’s the mark of the true man to show some emotion in my opinion.
Following the ceremony we dodged the rain and made our way to The Gatsby, a local restaurant. The Gatsby is a converted cinema that dates back to the 30′s and maintains it’s art deco theme throughout, very cool with helpful and friendly staff.
A great night ensued and The Gatsby was full to the brim with family, friends and well-wishers.
Congratulations again to James and Laura on their Berkhamsted wedding. Here is a small selection from the day.
