Anoushka and Laurie’s Laid Back Forty Hall Wedding

 

It was so wonderful to be part of Anoushka and Laurie’s Forty Hall wedding. We had together first visited the site for their engagement shoot at the venue months pervious to this. It was refreshing to see the change of the seasons as the colours of the wisteria had faded giving way to beautiful autumnal tones for their London wedding photography. The couple chose to have their ceremony at their local church St Mary the Virgin in Cheshunt.  It is a beautifully bright and open church building with a lovely community feel. As guests began to arrive they mingled together and took their seats. Being prompt, Anoushka was there bright and early, ready to walk down the aisle with her mother and father.

To honour both of their families heritages, the couple had two ceremonies. One to pay tribute to Laurie’s Christian family roots and then another wedding celebration at South Farm. This was where Anoushka and Laurie were married in a Hindu Ceremony. This blog is however in the pipeline so you will have to wait to see the gorgeous Cambridgeshire wedding. After a beautiful ceremony at St Mary’s, the couple exited the church to a flurry of brightly coloured rose petals. A Rolls Royce whisking the newlyweds away to their Forty Hall reception as their guests followed them to the venue.
