On this long hot day, I thought I’d share a Fanhams Hall Hotel wedding from last October to try and cool things down a bit! I had the pleasure of photographing Sam and Alan’s big day late last year at the hotel, which is nestled in its own grounds just outside the pretty Hertfordshire town of Ware. Having worked at Fanhams Hall Hotel many times previously, I knew some great places to take the couple for stunning colourful and romantic photographs and we wandered around the grounds after the wedding service, enjoying the peace and quiet.
After a long wet summer in 2012, we were treated to a fairly mild and dry autumn, which made the light on the day very soft and golden – just what was ordered! We made use of the iconic red bridge in the grounds, which is always a must-have shot for couples getting married at Fanhams. As usual, I shot with Canon digital cameras and lenses but also brought along a Mamiya medium format camera loaded with film and shot a couple of the portraits with that – can you tell which images are on film?
