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.”


2010 Wedding Show Reel

As I had a bit of time this weekend I thought I would create a wedding show reel of some of this years weddings. I used iphoto to export the images in HD 720p format video, seems to work ok. The video has weddings for Luton Hoo, Sopwell House and St Nicholas Church Harpenden, hope you like it.

Laura and Russells Wedding Luton Hoo

Just into October after a week or two of bad weather Saturday the 9th was looking good, but as usual the BBC weather was wrong. It didn’t rain which was good but it was a bit cold and overcast all day. The day started with me heading to the venue about 9 o’clock to photograph the bride prep.

Luton Hoo was the venue, and what a great venue a 18th century Grade 1 listed Mansion House on the boarder of Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire. I then off the the Cross Keys in Harpenden to catch up with the groom. After a quick bit of Dutch courage the groom and best man made there way across to St Nicholas church to wait for the bride.

Vicky and Pauls Wedding St Marys Church Luton

On a sunny but windy 25th of September Vicky and Paul got married at St Mary’s church in the centre of Luton. The bride stayed with tradition and arrived at the church a bit late, but well worth waiting for she looked beautiful. A great service followed by a tea and cakes in the church hall for some of Vicky and Pauls friends then off to Letchworth Hall Hotel for the wedding breakfast and evening reception.

The church building you see today is the largest in Bedfordshire and one of the finer medieval churches in England. It dates mainly from the 14th and 15th centuries. The earlier church was built about 931, founded by King Athelstan as an act of thanksgiving for victory over the Danes. The land here was owned by the king in Saxon and early Norman times and the church was very richly endowed.

Here is a small selection of the images from the day.
