Hedsor House – Ruth & Josh

Hedsor Hall wedding photographer – Ruth and Josh’s Day

As a London-based wedding photographer, I frequently capture wedding photography at Hedsor House.  Ruth and Josh chose a truly awe-inspiring location for their late summer wedding.

First, these guys had a catholic church wedding at St Joseph’s Parish Church in Maidenhead.  Ruth looked stunning in a gorgeous dress made of sushi taffeta.  It had a high neck, a fitted waist and a full skirt giving Ruth an amazing silhouette.  It had a vintage glamour about it that I knew was exactly what Ruth was going for.  It was designed by Jesus Peiro and Ruth bought it at  Ellie Sanderson’s bridal boutique in Beaconsfield.  It was perfectly complemented with elegantly styled hair by Juta Zorubiene and flawless make-up by Amy Rose.

Josh and his groom’s party looked very smart in traditional tails with blush pink ties.  And Ruth’s bridesmaids all looked elegant in blush pink dresses from Ever-Pretty.

The church looked amazing decorated with elegant white flowers thanks to florist Devine Flowers.  The ceremony was conducted by Father Liam whose gentle humour set a light tone.  The ceremony included the sharing of water, anointing of oil to the hands as well as vows and prayers.  There was a live performance by a close family friend who sang ‘Ave Maria’ so beautifully that it brought some guests to tears.

After the ceremony, everybody headed to the award-winning Hedsor House for the reception.  For anyone who has never visited Hedsor House, it’s a stunning Georgian Mansion that sits in 100 acres of beautiful Buckinghamshire parkland.  And is simply a stunning location for a wedding.

Guests arrived first to be greeted by a live mariachi band Mariachi Rey at the entrance of Hedsor House.  Everybody convened outside to welcome Ruth and Josh who arrived in an impressive vintage Bentley.  The mariachi band were so popular and played some classics like ‘Tequila’, ‘La Cucaracha and ‘Guantanamera’ which delighted guests throughout the day.  Ruth is half Colombian, so Ruth and Josh wanted a blend of a traditional English wedding with a Latin theme woven in.  So, the mariachi band was a great idea (Well done to Ruth’s Dad for thinking of it!)

One of the many reasons why I love capturing wedding photography at Hedsor House is because weddings there are always so well organised.  Especially when couples book local professional toastmaster Paul Deacon, who subtly and light-heartedly made sure everybody was where they should be at all times.

The wedding reception was held in Hedsor House’s magnificent ballroom which had been dressed beautifully with blush pink and white flowers with green foliage to match the colour scheme and the bouquets.  All were created by Hedsor House’s recommended florist Seventh Heaven.  Each table was named after a place that Ruth and Josh had enjoyed travelling to, each with a picture of them at that location.

There followed a delicious wedding breakfast created by Hedsor House’s recommended caterers Goose & Berry who served a bespoke menu of food that they created to suit Ruth and Josh’s tastes.

Now I must mention the cake, it was a work of art and was made by Hedsor House’s recommended cake makers le papillon cakes and included some really fun cake toppers of Ruth, Josh and their dog that they got from Rosie’s Cake Toppers.

Evening celebrations started with a first dance for Ruth and Josh, who wowed everybody with a choreographed salsa dance to ‘Get Lucky’.  It went down a storm with everybody and really set the party tone for the evening.

When it came to evening entertainment Ruth and Josh had thought of everything with a fun photo booth, a ‘pick n mix’ stand and a live performance from the seven-piece band The Rockets Collective who performed well-known disco and funk tunes as well as some fun mash-ups that saw the dancefloor packed with ecstatic guests dancing and singing along.  As always, I got right into the action and captured some really fun dancefloor images.

I loved capturing Ruth and Josh’s fun wedding at Hedsor House.  An amazing wedding at a simply stunning London wedding venue for a really lovely couple.
