St Michael’s Manor Hotel Wedding St Albans

St Michael’s Manor Hotel Wedding

On Saturday 1st April I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Charlie and Matt at St Michael’s Manor Hotel in St Albans.

St Michael’s Manor Hotel is a new venue for me and it is absolutely beautiful. The elegant styling and light filled conservatory are a dream setting for a wedding. The building itself dates back to 1585 and the grounds are stunning.

Charlie and Matt are two of the loveliest people you could meet, and their families made me feel so welcome and at home. Many of whom had travelled far and wide to be with them on their special day. From Yorkshire, Warwickshire, Dubai, Spain and even Australia!

The Ceremony

The ceremony took place in St Peter’s church in St Albans, just a short drive from St Michael’s Manor Hotel. The church filled with light that streamed through the beautiful stained glass circular window. Honestly, this was a dream church to photograph a wedding in!

When the vicar introduced Charlie and Matt as the new Mr and Mrs Edge the whole congregation burst out cheering and clapping as they walked back down the aisle. I think it was the loudest congratulations I have witnessed in a church! The atmosphere was warm and happy, despite the chilly April air.

The Reception

Back at St Michael’s Manor the celebrations got underway while I captured the important group photographs and couple portraits. We were so lucky that the rain held off for us!

After the wedding breakfast the party continued into the night and I could tell it was going to be a good one! 

Here is a sneak peek from Charlie and Matt’s wonderful day, I can’t wait to bring them the full gallery!

If you are planning your wedding at St Michael’s Manor Hotel do get in touch, I’d love to chat about your day!
