Sarah & Rob’s Hatch House Wedding
Wiltshire Wedding Photography
I was really looking forward to meeting up with Sarah and Rob again to photograph their wedding at Hatch House in Wiltshire. I had photographed Rebecca and Ben’s wedding at Hatch House a few years ago and it’s one of those venues that I’d always hoped to pay a return visit. It’s a beautiful secluded private wedding venue in the middle of the Wiltshire countryside, Sarah and Rob were also drawn to the lovely gardens and stunning setting. The views are amazing and make a beautiful backdrop for photographs and it’s great to be able to have all the celebrations in one location.
As my second shooter, Emmie photographed the boys getting ready at The Courtyard at Park Farm I was busy with Sarah and the girls at The River Barn where there were a few worries about the weather. The gardens at Hatch House are perfect for an outdoor ceremony and drinks reception, but it seemed as though the morning’s heavy rain would mean a change of plan was necessary. Fortunately, as I left the girls and arrived at the venue the rain stopped and the clouds started to part, by the time the ceremony had finished the sun was shining brightly.
The ceremony was followed by a lovely relaxed drinks reception with entertainment in the form of an acoustic set from The Epics. We had group photos on the lawn with the lush green gardens forming a lovely backdrop and then explored the grounds for the first session of couple portraits. Since the weather had vastly improved we also headed out again in the golden hour, the light was perfect and the views over the valley were stunning.
The marquee was full of emotion during the speeches, there were tears but also lots of laughter and I loved that Sarah and Rob did a speech together. The celebrations continued into the evening with a party that was full of fun and energetic dancing and accompanied by delicious wood-fired pizzas provided by Wild Oven pizza truck, a perfect end to the day!
