Such a beautiful bride, such a heavenly image - my favourite from this Brocket Hall wedding
This wedding has everything: glitz and glamour, class and style, that traditional English sophistication and quiet elegance. Amy and Charlie were married at Brocket Hall, one of England’s finest stately homes in Hertfordshire.
I love this wedding for its sheer beauty: the majestic venue and breathtaking beauty of the reception rooms, the opulent floral displays and most of all Amy’s glamour and elegance, and the way she and Charlie look at each other with eyes full of love.
And then there are the moments. The moment Charlie looks to the heavens as he waits in church for his bride, the moment the happy couple leave the church in triumph, and best of all Charlie’s excellent dancing as he walks hand in hand with his bride along the driveway to Brocket Hall.
The photography is of course by outstanding wedding photographer Chris Hanley. The romance, the imaginative images, the most incredible detail shots and the way these photos will make you smile… that’s all thanks to Chris Hanley Photography.
