Northbrook Park Wedding – Laura & Micah

“Overall James was probably the best addition to our wedding in terms of what we spent our money on. He is more than a photographer. You definitely get a lot more than you pay for, which in our case was all of the above, a lot of fun and great photos reflecting that. We would highly recommend.”- Micah & Laura


There is so much I could say about this special day shared by Laura, Micah and all of their friends and family. It was a truly special day in so many ways. Their Northbrook Park Wedding was just amazing from start to finish. I hope you can tell how much fun we had by the images!

We started the day at Barnett Hill Hotel where Laura was getting ready. The vibe with Laura’s friends and parents was so relaxed. It really was no problem at all getting awesome images of them all getting ready. Laura had gone for such a simple and elegant look, I think we were all blown away by how right she had got it! All morning, you could tell how close the ties were between Laura and her wedding party. This became even more apparent when her bridesmaids and parents prayed for her before the ceremony. With their faith being so important to Laura and Micah alike, this was such a special and heartfelt moment to witness.

The Ceremony

Fast forward to the ceremony, held at St John the Baptist Church, Busbridge, and here came one of my favorite moments from the day. When Micah saw Laura for the first time as she was walked down the aisle, there was not so much a welling up, or a single tear. Micah gave into a wonderful expression of his emotion as he dissolved into tears. It was one of the most beautiful moments I’ve ever had the privilege of photographing. Those moments are what it’s all about for me.
The ceremony then transitioned from that poignant moment to the joy and laughter that followed. From a flower girl going rogue and trying to go back up the aisle to Laura’s Dad having fun playing his part as Father and Vicar! He took full advantage of the moment of asking who gives this woman in marriage!

A Northbrook Park Wedding Reception

What an incredible venue to photograph at! It was beautiful outside and in, complete with peacocks roaming free! I had a great time at this venue and would highly recommend a Northbrook Park Wedding to everyone.
Laura and Micah enjoyed such an incredible reception here, with a beautiful wedding breakfast and EPIC party!

During the meal, the speeches were all incredible. To get 3 out of 3 speeches be that funny is rare. However Micah, his best man and Laura’s Dad rose to the challenge and had the guests (and me!) in stitches. And although there was a fair bit of banter in there, they all spoke so highly of the bride and groom. It was such a testament to them as just lovely people.
Then we come onto the party- these guys know how to party! There were so many epic moments out on the dance floor, I literally couldn’t tear myself away! I stayed well into the night and captured some amazing moments! People were lifted into the air, there was the worm, endless crazy moves, and the whole wedding just having an incredible time.

Micah and Laura are an incredible couple, and the day really showed how right they are for each other. They were just mega chilled around each other, their relationship is so effortless as they just seem to be the best of friends. Throughout the whole day, you could just tell how much they loved each other. The little looks they’d give each other and how they held each other were all telling signs of a great couple. It was an honor to be their wedding photographer and I hope you all love the photographs as much as I do!
