Highfield Park Wedding – Vikki and Karl
A couple of weeks ago I covered Vikki and Karl’s wedding at St Michael’s Church Heckfield and Highfield Park.
Both venues are very close to each other, literally a 60 second walk away so Vikki started to get ready at Highfield Park itself and then walked over to the church.
The ceremony itself was lovely, the Vicar was a dream to work with (she had lots of humorous things to say to the guests) and despite my walking around the church in my socks and using the 5D3 with it’s new and amazing silent shutter my bag still managed to fall onto the floor undoing all my good work! The timing was ironic too as the Vicar was telling everyone the importance of saying sorry, it was slightly embarrassing but admittedly it did provide even more humour to an already buoyant atmosphere.
After the ceremony we had an accidental receiving line which went down well and after the confetti we walked around the church the long way to Highfield park. This was because access to the reception was easier at the back and even more importantly we used the open space for formals.
Because it was late Spring and the sun sits lower in the sky I had to backlight everyone (make sure the sun is on their backs). This is the right way of doing things although I was staring straight into the sun.
After the formals I went off with Vikki and Karl to other areas of Highfield Park for formals and afterwards I went and freelanced amongst the guests.
Dinner and the evening reception followed. The DJ was great and with the first dance was pretty special as both Vikki and Karl are dancers.
It was a great day made even better by the excellent staff supporting the Church and Venue. This was my first Highfield Park Wedding and it was pretty awesome.
