Fetcham Park Wedding | Chloe & Paul
Fetcham Park Wedding Photographer
Now I click with a lot of my clients but even by the high standards set in the past shooting Chloe and Paul’s wedding was particularly fun. In fact, since their wedding we’ve had dinner twice and are currently drawing up plans to ransack the gin palaces of London. I mention that really because walking into the bridal prep felt like walking into the home of an old friend. When you click you just click. This is the first of two back to back winter weddings I’ll be blogging and they’re always challenging because they’re so dark. But having to work twice as hard makes it more rewarding in the long run and wintry weddings are always incredibly atmospheric. It was already dark when the ceremony started at 4pm inside the beautiful St Barnabus church on Ranmore Common. Where, as part of the service, there were Christmas carols and chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Okay, there were no chestnuts roasting on an open fire but there was a Christmas tree and the roasting chestnuts were there in spirit. From there it was a short drive to the gorgeous Fetcham Park House for the reception and dinner in a twin-roofed tipi (the reaction shots of Chloe walking in and seeing it for the first time are priceless) outside in the grounds. I have a big soft spot for Fetcham Park anyway, ever since I did a fashion shoot (*see links below) and got to know the ridiculously lovely Laura Caudery (Chloe concurs on this matter, FYI), who ghosts about making everything run like clockwork with gentlest of hands. But really, it’s impossible to overstate what a happy and beautiful wedding this was to be a part of. Chloe and Paul are absurdly charming and that was stamped through the day like a stick of Brighton rock.
Next stop, the gin palaces of London….
