The Gatehouse Registry Office St Albans Hertfordshire

St Albans Registry Office Wedding

Big congratulations to Charlotte and Gary who got married at St Albans registry office.  Just loved the dramatic gatehouse doors of the former Victorian prison, which is now St Albans Registry Office.  The happy couple were very easy to work with and received my directions with ease.  As always I aim to make as image natural looking with a little fun.  Formal posed group shots are important to every wedding which I try and do as fast as possible and then break into some relaxed group shots to stage then in a way as if they just happened that way.

If you are planning to get married at St Albans registry office you will find the registrars here are very friendly and give an upbeat ceremony with a little humour.  The gardens and buildings do make a great back drop for your wedding photos which is limited at many other registry offices in the area.

West Lodge Park Hotel

Vicki and Richard married at Enfield Registry Office in May on gorgeous bright warm day. They made me very nervous when I arrived as they were both outside the registry office and panic set in my mind. Was I late for the wedding; did I get the time wrong ?
After racing over to them I found out I was my normal early self and all ways well. Vicki and Richard were just being unconventional and decided to wait together. They are just a sweet couple I guess they just could not be parted. After a small ceremony we took of images on the bridge outside Enfield Registry Office a favorite of mine. After the formal group shots we move on to West Lodge Park Hotel, Cockfosters Road, Hadley Wood for canopies on the lawn and later into the wedding breakfast. Unusually this was a Monday wedding but still West Lodge Park was host 2 weddings this day. It is a very grand wedding venue and beautiful gardens with very kind and helpful staff.

Wedding at Heatherden Hall, Pinewood Studios

Heatherden Hall, Pinewood studios is such an exciting place for a wedding venue.  Not only is the place steeped in history but Heatherden Hall is a magnificent building in itself with a very grand wood paneled ball room makes a stunning back drop for any occasion.  In addition to this the beautifully managed gardens provide endless possibilities for great photos.  We even used Heatherden Hall as a venue for Kayleigh and Colin’s pre wedding photoshoot .

Boxmoor Lodge Wedding

Boxmoor Lodge, Hemel Hempstead is a great venue for weddings with a very personal service.  With a large marque and private gardens your guests can enjoy a great experience and kids can run around safely.  Mel and Paul hired this stylish retro VW camper van that fitted in well with Mel’s all pink wedding theme.
