Devika and John’s Wedding at Tewin Bury Farm Hotel

It was an early start for me as Devika and John where getting married at ‘High Noon’ which meant hair and makeup for the bride and brides maids was in progress when I arrived at 8:00. The wedding was being held at Tewin Bury Farm Hotel a 17th century farmhouse with its converted farm buildings set amidst idyllic Hertfordshire countryside.

This is a tale of two weddings, Wedding one: Devika and John got married a few months ago in Mauritius ( the home of the now extinct Dodo), where Devika’s family and friends are from, I talked to bride about the wedding ceremony and it seems to be a much messier affair compared to an English ceremony, both the bride and groom get cleansed by rubbing turmeric into their skin and hair, and then they walk around a fire seven times, there’s a lot more to the ceremony then these two events, blessings, prays, flowers etc, but these two stood out the most of all to me.

Wedding two: the return match happened on 29th July, this time in England, and nobody would be rubbing turmeric into anybody, I don’t think that the bride would have liked her elegant ivory wedding dress modified with a bright yellow spice!!  Although the colour of the dress was a break with tradition Devika did hold onto a little bit of home her Red High heels. The Brides maid took up the red theme looking stunning in custom made Red Silk dresses from Mauritius. One more suprise for her family and friends was that the top tiar of the wedding cake was made with the inside layers of sponge in Red,Blue Yellow and Green the colours of the  Mauritius flag.

Here are a few images from the day.

Devika and John’s Engagement Shoot

Just spent a very pleasant morning at Tewin Bury Farm with Devika and John shooting there engagement, they are getting married here on 29th July. I haven’t shoot a wedding here before so I had a good look round today. Devika and John’s wedding is outside so full sun could be a problem! but this is England so the weather could do anything on the day.

Tewin Bury Farm is an old 17th century farm just outside Welwyn Garden City the venue has lots of nice out buildings and a river, so some great locations for the wedding day photos.

For all you F1 GP fans, Tewin was once the home of are very own Lewis Hamilton.

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.”
