What happens when the Priest gets married? A beautiful celebration in Potters Bar • Documentary Wedding Photographer • Church Wedding

It’s very rare to be able to shoot a Priest’s wedding, even rarer to have been lucky enough to work alongside the same Priest at his cousin’s wedding a few years ago. Word of mouth is my biggest form of advertising and when family members of past Brides and Grooms come to me for their own wedding photography it always feels like an old friend and has a very special feel to it.

This feeling was added to on this wedding day, as it was the Priest himself getting married! This meant that the church service was absolutely packed! Friends, family and congregations from across multiple churches and communities came along to celebrate these two getting married. Good job his Church was a fabulous size!

The ceremony itself was absolutely beautiful, with everyone involved really giving it all their heart, the choir sang beautifully and moved the Groom to tears, which was just beautiful to watch. After the ceremony we went straight out and hid the newlyweds around the corner to do a few quick couple shots before heading back out of the doors to a fabulous confetti line, which was nice and quick to organise. It was fab to then follow them to a hotel on route to their reception where we could grab a few more intimate photos in the gardens away from the eyes of their guests.

 Leading into their reception they followed two Dhol drummers, which then led to a great dance off before the meal! This was a surprise for their guests and it went down like a storm – everyone loved it! The fun and games continued during speeches with the Mr and Mrs game - played with feta cheese for the Greek grooms side and rice for the Brides side! Mr and Mrs is always a fabulous way to get laughs and get the party going. It really was a beautiful day, filled with family and love; I wish them all the happiness in their future, and many more belly laughs together!
