Anna and Chris had booked me as their Courteen Hall wedding photographer a long way in advance of their big day. They’d booked Courteen Hall, where at the time, they hadn’t had a wedding. I don’t think anyway! It was brand new. When I say brand new I don’t mean a new facility. As you may be able to tell from the name it’s an old house….
I had a good old fashion mooch around the venue the day before. I remember it was scorching hot. I also remember not being able to find it for love nor money. You’d perhaps think Courteen Hall would be in the village, Courteenhall. You’d be wrong. It’s grounds may kiss the edge of the village (which is a cul de sac by the way!), but the entrance is nowhere near. Eventually I found it and it was worth the goosey goose chase!
The first thing that struck me about this wedding was the happiness. Clearly you expect more than a smidge of happiness on a wedding day! But everyone at the wedding was so very happy for Anna and Chris.
