Sam and Matt’s wedding
{Heatherden Hall, Pinewood Studios}

Early start today to ensure we arrived at the Pinewood Hotel in plenty of time for Sam’s preparations with her nearest and dearest girlfriends and family.   It was yet another glorious morning and the drive up towards London was soon done giving Earle and I time for a coffee and gather our thoughts for the day ahead.

The girls were in their room, I love that time when I can just dip into all that girlie chatter and excitement, capturing the essence of the atmosphere and then moving on to quieter areas with the bride while she completes her final preparations.  Sam had a lovely bridal suite and this is where she opted to have her hair and makeup done before her mum and aunt arrived to help her into her beautiful wedding gown.

Earle and the boys met quite close by, once the boys were suited and booted they all made their way to Pinewood Studios and Heatherden Hall , the lovely manor house within the grounds of this infamous film studio.  Matt and their guests were seated in the ceremony room which looked marvellously colonial with all the french windows flung open to let a cooling breeze through whilst reavealing the calming view into the gardens,  Sam and her father followed the bridesmaids up the aisle and we all enjoyed a particularly animated and emotional ceremony.

While the guests made the most of the sunshine during the drinks reception we spent a short time with Matt and Sam to photograph them alone together around Pinewood Studios before the formal photographs were completed and the wedding breakfast was to begin.  Sam and Matt had hired the candleabras we have available and their florist had done a brilliant job of adorning them for the table centrepieces giving the ballroom a truly grand air with the wood panelling and stunning chandeliers.

As the afternoon turned to evening the weather began to change with thundery rain moving in, but this did not matter one jot as the party was due to begin with a huge number of guests arriving to join the music and dancing provided by Matt and his friends, some of London’s very best DJ’s and musicians.  Sam’s surprise for the evening (after the biggest, explosive blast of confetti during the first dance we have EVER seen) was arranged by Matt and as he introduced Mark Shaw lead singer of  ’80’s band ‘Then Jericho’ onto the stage to sing just for her…. the whole place went wild!!

Sam and Matt we send you our warmest congratulations on your marriage and a wonderful wedding day, we have chosen a few images from the day for you to enjoy while we organise your proofs.  If anyone would like to join in with our blog and leave a comment that would be great:-)
