Friday 9 May - Ponsbourne Park

Sophie & Paul

Just beause you find a sign to Ponsbourne Park don't think you're there yet! It has one of the longest driveways ever and when you round the corner and see the house it's a stunning view.

I see lots of engraving on rings... but it would appear that you can always fit in another diamond somewhere too!

For Sophie and Paul the venue was extra special as Sophie's mum and step dad had got married there too. Whilst you can get married outdoors in the stone gazebo, they choose the Garden Room which was flooded with plenty of sunshine - perfectly matching the yellow colour-scheme.

Fun was an important part of the day and I'd been asked to include some more quirky photos alongside the 'as it happens' moments. The heart shaped group shot did involve a bit of preparation that morning but the guests all did their part perfectly.

bridal party jump

I'd met the couple at Ponsbourne previously, where we'd taken some test shots and scoped out options for dry and wet weather photo locations. So on the day, being in front of the camera came far more naturally.

Sophie and Paul wanted something more interesting than simple numbers so each table had a monkey theme - which was then also reflected in their cake topper! Guests got to write congratulatory messages on jenga blocks which I know will be a highly competitive game in their house.

The day was rounded off with a hog roast, party songs and dancing, conga line and some sparklers and that was before I headed off!
