Brocket Hall wedding photography | Katy & Dean

Brocket Hall wedding photography

Great people, a great venue, and… typical English weather – well two out of three isn’t bad! It didn’t actually rain on Katy & Dean’s wedding day, but it was that classic English mix of overcast skies with a hint of sunshine here and there. The couple would probably prefer wall-to-wall sunshine of course, but from a photographer’s point of view a softer day is not necessarily a bad thing. It means people don’t get hot and sticky, and aren’t dazzled by the sun.

My day started with the guys getting ready (and the obligatory swift pint in the pub), while my colleague Steve Shipman was with the bride and her family. We all came together for the service at Our Lady of Lourdes’ Church in Harpenden. To quote the best man’s speech: “I think you’ll agree the bride and bridesmaids looked stunning.” Yes they did!

Parish priest Monsignor Turner was very welcoming, but of course we did our best to be as discreet and quiet as possible when taking photos during the service.

Wedding photos at Brocket Hall Golf Club

After the Mass we headed down the road to Brocket Hall for the reception, which was held in the Oak Room at Brocket Hall Golf Club. This gave everyone plenty of room to move and the guests were able to enjoy drinks on the terrace overlooking Broadwater Lake and the golf course.

Steve and I took the couple off for a short photo shoot in a couple of locations around the grounds, before everyone sat down for the wedding breakfast and speeches. The evening was rounded off by dancing, and a great time was had by all!

Brocket Hall is an excellent location for weddings – whether you prefer the elegance of the main House, or the more spacious surroundings of the Golf Club. There’s also the more intimate option of the Auberge du Lac restaurant if you don’t have as many guests. I always enjoy working at Brocket Hall, so if you’re thinking of having your reception there, please give me a call.

Oh yes and before I forget, here are some photos! 🙂
