Tewin Bury Farm Wedding Photographer
Recently I had an enormous pleasure and honour to be a Hertfordshire wedding photographer and photograph a beautiful wedding of Gemma and Aaron at the magical Tewin Bury Farm.
The wedding venue on the day was the beautiful Tewin Bury Farm, situated in picturesque Hertfordshire countryside. Right by the Welwyn Garden City. Tewin Bury Farm is just a perfect wedding venue and a true joy for any wedding photographer who wants to capture the wedding day of his newlywed couple in a beautiful way. The farm, which is also an excellent hotel, consist of uniquely converted barn building situated along river Mimram. The river flows just by the farm through structures of a rustic mill.
All that creates some beautiful backdrops for gorgeous wedding photography.

I started the wedding photography on the day in the bride and groom’s place, where the bride was getting ready in the company of her bridesmaids as well as the mother of the bride. From the first reactions and overall atmosphere I knew it is going to be an awesome wedding day!
After we snapped a few photos of the preparations, opening and pouring the champagne, off I was to the ceremony venue. Which was St Peter’s church in St Albans.
The ceremony went smoothly and was just perfect. With the father of the bride walking her down the aisle, the vows, exchange of the rings an of course first kiss we had all the formal parts of the wedding ceremony covered. The bride and groom also signed the register and the whole ceremony was simply joyful and moving.
After the ceremony, we took a few formal photos just by the church. After that most wedding guests, bride and groom included, got on the wedding special edition red bus.
The red wedding bus is such a great feature and is a great mode of transport during weddings. It can sit so many people and has lots of character. And they serve champagne on board!

After everyone arrived at the Tewin Bury Farm wedding venue, the fun part of the day was getting started. After canapes and drinks reception in the bar, everyone moved slowly to the red brick walled stables, where the wedding breakfast took place.
The speeches were funny and moving, bringing many wedding guests to tears. Then there was time for delicious dishes served during the wedding breakfast. There also was a traditional cake cutting with gingerbread men decorated wedding cake.
I photographed all those essential parts of the wedding in my signature natural and unobtrusive style. Just documenting things as they happened to create a story of the day in a documentary fashion. The first dance was fun to photograph as I could get up on one of the balconies and get a nice view from above.
The wedding photography finished in spectacular fashion with petting and feeding of reindeers and some beautiful wedding sparklers action!
Here is a selection of photos from the wedding day of Jemma and Aaron at the lovely Tewin Bury Farm. Enjoy!
Hertfordshire Wedding Photographer
I always enjoy photographing wedding in and around Hertfordshire. This county has so many beautiful wedding venues surrounded by beautiful countryside. It is always great to come back to create some gorgeous wedding photography.
Tewin Bury Farm is definitely no exception. The venue is so beautiful and is truly a full package for anyone looking to organise their wedding in Hertfordshire. It is also perfect for wedding photos with its historic barn buildings surrounded by nature.
The wedding of Jemma and Aaron was a true joy to photograph. The wedding couple, as well as their families and wedding guests, were just a bunch of down to earth people. They celebrated this wedding day in an atmosphere of family love and joy and happiness.
The bride and groom had their little baby boy with them throughout the day. This was just perfect for my style of photography. As a father of two and soon three I love photographing babies and kids and their connection to their parents.

Another gorgeous building of the Tewin Bury Farm is the 17th-century red brick stable. This is where most of the wedding photography on the day took place.
