I shot my first wedding at Hampton Court House last year (click here for Gemma & Sam’s wedding blog post), so when Jo & Steve contacted me about their wedding at Hampton Court House this year, I was over the moon. With the house leading straight out onto Bushy Park (one of my favourite spots to relax & shoot), couples are literally spoilt for choice when it comes to their wedding day portraits, not to mention the house itself and the gorgeous shell grotto. Jo & Steve made the most of the venue by having their ceremony & reception at the house, followed by drinks and canapes on the terrace in the sunshine.
I love how relaxed the day was, and watching Jo & Steve with their wedding guests, I realised yet again how special it is to share your wedding day – the most amazing day of your life, with your family & friends. I had a wonderful time and it was a real treat being back at Hampton Court House, and yes, Leyla the dog is still there, and this time she wore a bow for the wedding! :-)
Jo & Steve, thanks again for letting me be a part of your day. Knowing that you love your photos as much as I loved taking them, is simply wonderful.
Enjoy married life Mr & Mrs Shinn!
