Hampden House Wedding

Dina and Ben’s Big Day Out!

 

Today was the wedding day of the lovely Dina and Ben at Hampden House, an impressive country house set in the Chiltern Hills in Buckinghamshire. The Crown Inn in Amersham was my first stop to cover a little of the bride’s preparations. It was nice to meet the bride’s mother and of course the bridesmaids.

Off to Hampden House – the venue provides these personalised signs for the couple which is a nice touch.

An impressive part of the house is the part that looks out onto the gardens.

There’s a hole in the church wall, tunnelled through about a metre of brick. Great to get a sneaky picture of the couple at the altar.

Into the meal. The dining room had been redecorated earlier this year and looked amazing. A definite step up from the old colour scheme.
