This is the Wedding of Anna & Thom way back in 2014 and I cannot believe that this had gotten lost on my blog. I thought I would repost it today. It was a gorgeous two day event in the beautiful Hill Place venue. We had the entire house for the two days and a gorgeous marquee on the grounds for the breakfast and party.

Hill Place is an awesome backdrop for any event and it was inch perfect for Anna & Thom and their guests to relax and enjoy a sense of space and unhurriedness that the place affords. The morning was so relaxed and bridal preparation took place in pretty much the biggest room in the house so I had lots of space to get a good mix of close and wide shots. It’s a few years now since I shot the wedding and the memories are flooding back as I write this.

I know for sure that I was made to feel so welcome and part of the event, pretty much the same as any other guest, from the get-go. I remember thinking that with this venue, and this couple, and these guests … I absolutely have to smash it with the photographs. The day continued in a relaxed pace thru the ceremony at St Margarets Church thru to the wedding breakfast, speeches and then into the party and what a party it was.

Life turned into one huge dancing only stopping for a quick pizza break around 9pm. 🙂 I have to say I had more than a few slices of that. All in all it was a gorgeous wedding day spent with a special band of people who all came together to create a special day for Anna & Thom. I hope you enjoy the images which I’ve decided to post randomly to accompany my somewhat scatterbrain introduction above.
