St Michaels Manor Hotel, St Albans, Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer
Alexis & James
The wedding of Alexis and James at the gorgeous St Michaels Manor hotel, was a great way to end my year. They had picked one amazing venue and did I mention just how cool these guys were ? I had such a blast shooting this wedding it was pure fun from start to finish. Being a winter wedding the weather wasn’t the greatest, but it didn’t put any downer on this day.
Alexis got ready at the gorgeous St Michaels Manor hotel with her bridesmaids. She was super chilled whilst having hair and make up done and very excited about the day ahead. The girls helped her in to her stunning Morilee wedding dress in the beautiful bridal suite. The slight bit of nervousness calmed with a helping of champagne. Whilst Alexis added the final touches to her outfit, James was adding the final touches to his stunning tux downstairs in the hotel. His groomsmen all in matching black tuxedos all looked really sharp. As the guests started to arrive we popped James outside to shoot photos of him with the guys and opening a few gifts from Alexis.
Before we knew it, it was ceremony time. As James waited anxiously with his guests in the ceremony room. Alexis headed down to meet him at the top of aisle. The ceremony was perfect, full of laughter and plenty of emotion. All the guests looked on as they exchanged their wedding vows and rings, before heading back up the aisle as husband and wife.
Post ceremony we popped outside to photograph confetti and some family portraits, thankfully the weather held off for us. We let James and Alexis have a good mingle with friends all wanting to congratulate them. Just before heading in for the wedding breakfast and speeches we popped out to shoot some couple portraits in the stunning grounds of St Michaels Manor hotel.
After the wedding breakfast it was time for some fantastic speeches, which provided so many laughs and tears. It was all rounded off with a fantastic sparkler line outside and fireworks provided by some local residents. Shortly after we headed back in for the cake cutting and first dance. The night was rounded off with a few night portraits outside and one huge party.
