Natalie and Andrew Wedding at Moor Park Rickmansworth

My First wedding of 2011 was on a overcast and chilly January day at Moor Park Golf Club, Rickmansworth in Hertfordshire. Moor Park is a Grade I listed Palladian mansion set within several hundred acres of parkland and a great venue for a wedding, and for you golfers it has two challenging courses.

Natalie and Andrew where getting married at 2 o’clock which for me as a photographer could have been a problem with light, but all went well the light held until 4:30 and I got some great shots.

With a 10 o’clock start for hair and make-up we had plenty of time for some bridal prep shots, and then had time to take advantage of the rooms and staircases at Moor Park for some more great images.

With a break from traditional the groom would not be waiting on his own for his bride to arrive, as the couple decided to walk up the isle together. This gave me an optionality to do what the Americans call a “First Look“, I set Andrew up in one for the bedrooms with some good lighting and his back to the door, Natalie then walked in and tapped Andrew on the shoulder he turn to look at her for the first time as his bride, click a great emotional moment was captured.







Hair and make-up was by Shahnaz Walford ‘the make up girl’ simple but elegant.


The “First Look”





‘Fireworks, 9:30, January’  It’s a lot colder and darker then it look.

Herts and Beds Weddings Magazine

Back in December the features editor of  “Your Herts and Beds Wedding Magazine” was ringing local Hertfordshire Wedding photographers and asking if they had any memorable wedding that year, the thing is that all my weddings are memorable but one did spring to mind. The wedding of Laura and Russell Pert back in October, this wedding matches the magazine perfectly as the wedding was in Hertfordshire and the reception was in Bedfordshire. The service was at St Nicholas Church in Harpenden, we then changed county for the reception at Luton Hoo.

Well Grounded

Shot on 9th October, 2010, this image of Laura and Russell Pert by Peter Hearl is a beautiful image taken at Luton Hoo — and a favourite of Peter’s. He tells us: “I love this shot because it captures an intimate moment betweed the pair, and it was the only time in the day that they could steal a walk together through the stunning grounds.”
