This venue for wedding ceremonies and receptions isĀ The Noke Hotel, also known as the Mercure St AlbansĀ Hertfordshire. The Noke is just a stones throw from the M25 motorway but this is no motel; it really is gorgeous both inside and outside. The gardens are particularly well maintained with a good variety of trees and shrubs plus bedding plants urns and hanging baskets.

The registrars who conduct marriage ceremonies at this St Albans venue are very easy to work with - no silly restrictions regarding professional photography and video so Peter is able to record a complete record in both stills and movie formats.

Receptions can take place in the main restaurant and in the adjacent large marquee, as you'll see in the photos.

The weather on Caroline's day was very testing from a photography point of view. It didn't rain and it wasn't cold, but the wind was strong and gusty and was a constant feature throughout. We shot a few essential group photos in the afternoon but the main photos were shot in the evening after the wedding breakfast when we were able to take advantage of what became an area sheltered from the wind around the rose gardens.

Peter's coverage often starts with the girls getting ready. Details shots of the flowers, shoes, dresses, jewellery etc make for a great start to a wedding photo album:

A bride, Shannon, had her wedding and reception at another venue rather than The Noke Hotel. Peter shot some of her photos at The Noke as well as shooting the rest of her day in full for her elsewhere. What an amazing dress:

The car is the groom's pride and joy, so it simply had to be included with some wedding photos:
