Are you ready to go to Hertfordshire for today's Real Wedding? Well today we have the big day for Hayley and Mike who got married at Hexton Manor. Mastermind behind the camera is Alexis Jaworski whom we haven't featured on the blog as yet but we do think this is a great first wedding.
So lets take a look at the Wedding that was...enjoy.

One of the things that I will remember from Hayley and Mike’s wedding is how genuine, caring and fun they both are and I really felt welcomed by both families and friends on their wedding day! They chose the beautiful venue of Micklefield Hall, which is one of my favourite one’s to work at and the day was beautiful from beginning to end! Wedding photography at Micklefield Hall is just beautiful with so many areas and backdrops available.
The day started at Hayley’s parents house where the girls were having their hair and make up done and there was a relaxed and festive mood as I arrived. The bridesmaids were having fun and it included a rendition of Gangnam style for the amusement of all of us present in the room. Hayley and Mike had chosen to get married at the local church where Hayley’s parents attend at weekends. A beautiful church and service, but I was unfortunately only allowed to take a few shots from the back. It is always slightly disappointing when vicars impose those restrictions, considering how silent new cameras are and how discretely I work but I still managed to capture a few frames for the lovely couple to remember some of the service. It was raining as the service finished, however luckily it didn’t last too long and guests were able to enjoy the beautiful grounds at Micklefield Hall, a gorgeous venue and lovely staff!The day was relaxed with a few traditions such as the throw of the bouquet which I always like capturing and after the meal a few speeches followed, all of which were very entertaining and heartfelt! I covered the day until shortly after the first dance and then took Hayley and Mike for a final portrait by the lake at Micklefield Hall before leaving them to enjoy the rest of the party.
