What could be more romantic than the wedding of two childhood sweethearts? Sarah and Aidan met during sixth form, when they went to neighbouring schools, and ten years later they tied the knot at Hampton Court House in Surrey, with the wonderful Ben and Slawek from Green Olive Photography taking some wonderful photos.
âBen and Slawek were amazing! It was great to meet them for an engagement shoot about 7 months in advance and see them at work. Also, Aidan and I were a bit nervous in front of the camera so it was good to have a practice! They were fun and creative without being staged and were really good at putting us at ease. We really liked their style of reportage and the fact that there were 2 of them each capturing the day form different angles was great. They stayed all day which we were really impressed with and got some great shots of the dancing!â
Sarah and Aidan went to school in Surrey, and Sarahâs parents still live there, so Hampton Court House was an ideal choice for the venue. âThe venue is great because it is a big grand house (though slightly shabby round theages so it wasnât too intimidating!), overlooking Bushy Park. We loved that the whole wedding could happen in one place but that different spaces were involved so you didnât feel like you kept having to move out of the same room so the organisers could restyle it from ceremony, drinks reception, dinner, dancing etc. Also the fact that there is no corkage fee was a great help with the overall budget!â
âEnjoy it but donât let it take over your life. If you think you are turning bridezilla take stock, remember why you are getting married and who you are marrying. The rest of it doesnât really matter!â
And now on to the lovely photos from Green Olive.
Congratulations Sarah and Aidan!
