My final three wedding of 2016 all took place at Audleys Wood and I was fortunate enough to be asked to photograph Leah and Simon’s wedding at Audleys Wood Hotel during the Christmas holidays. Leah and Simon were to be married late in the afternoon with just a few family and friends in attendance and it turned out to be a true winter wonderland wedding with frost on the ground and winter sunshine low in the sky. I had been asked to just attend the wedding for a couple of hours to photograph the ceremony, the couple and a few group and family shots after the event. This tiny wedding had all the elements you could wish for to take beautiful photographs. A stunning location, a pensive groom, a handsome family and of course a beautiful bride.Leah was escorted down the staircase at Audleys Wood by her eldest son. She wore a soft, floaty chiffon gown with dropped shoulders and a ruched bodice with delicate sparkle detail. Her bouquet was deep red with white accents. The leaves, berries and red ribbon gave it a real Christmassy feel.Leah’s youngest son was ring bearer and he walked down the aisle as the couple held hands watching.It was a perfect ceremony sealed with a kiss.After their ceremony the couple braved the elements and we were able to go outside for some photographs in the wintery grounds surrounding Audleys Wood. Some of the winter wonderland feel I mentioned previously.Back inside to get warm and for a few Christmassy photographs of the couple and their family.Afternoon tea and cake was to follow. Thank you so much Leah and Simon for asking me to photograph your lovely wedding, it was a real pleasure.
