Coltsfoot Wedding Day
I visited the church the day before the wedding day and had a very interesting chat with Rod Dowdell who is the verger at St Mary’s. He was very helpful with his advice and extensive knowledge of the church and Welwyn village. As I was shooting some video as well as my standard stills photography his advice and general helpfullness on the day was very welcome and my thanks go to him as it is always beneficial to work in harmony with members of the ecclesiastical community.
Hair and make-up artist Olivia Ferrer was busy with the girls when I arrived at Angela’s home in the morning. Angela & David have beautiful cats and one of them posed nicely for me. Meanwhile the boys were preparing for the day ahead in the Wellington pub, conveniently right opposite the church.
As is the brides perogative Angela was a little late for the 1pm ceremony but the rector and her nephew Mylo waited patiently at the church gates to meet her. After the ceremony it was off to Coltsfoot in nearby Datchworth for some formal photographs and potraits of Angela & David. Guests, meanwhile, were entertained by the Acoustic Wedding Band and my old friend Piano Paul was on hand to provide a musical interlude too. I realised I had left my sound recorder back at the church so had to dash back while my second shooter Phil captured some gereat candids.
Into the evening with a great band “Indie & The Vegas” providing the music. We set up a little studio in one of the unused rooms to take some fun photographs of the guests holding up their advice and good wishes for the happy couple. The throwing of the bouquet seems to be coming back into popularity at weddings and Angela threw hers twice as the first lady who caught the flowers was already married- often happens. All in all another great Coltsfoot Wedding Day!
