BRIDE 2015 Knebworth Wedding Show, Grand Prize Draw – Winners announced!

Our Grand Prize Draw held at the BRIDE 2015 Knebworth Show was for 1 lucky couple to win a Full Day – Digital Wedding Photography Package from Belle Momenti Photography.

Having received hundreds of entries over the two day show we then randomly drew 3 Finalist entries. The 3 couples were then invited into our Hitchin Studio to hear what the prize package included, examples of our work, how it would all work on the day and for the couples to explain why they thought they should be the winners!
This is the first time we have ever offered such a prize, so we were overwhelmed with the response and when it came to selecting the winners, found the process almost impossible. Of the three couples selected as Finalists, two couples were, for very different reasons, clear winners. We had an instant rapport with them, loved their wedding plans and they loved our work & style of photography. As the two couples are getting married in different years, we have decided to extend the prize to one couple getting married in 2015 and one couple getting married in 2016.

We are therefore delighted to announce that the 2015 Winning couple are Lucy & Josh and the 2016 winning couple are Dan & Sunny.
We are extremely excited to be working with both couples and look forward to sharing their special day.

Four Weddings and a Fine Time at Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa

In 1994 the iconic film, Four Weddings and a Funeral was filmed  at the stunning Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa. This included scenes shot in the original Robert Adam designed ballroom as well as one of the bedroom suites where Hugh Grant is found hiding in a wardrobe. Elite Hotels owns 4 of the country’s grandest hotels including Ashdown Park Hotel & Country Club, Tylney Hall Hotel, The Grand Hotel Eastbourne and Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa.

Tying in with the Four Weddings theme, a major marketing initiative was developed to generate awareness of the four hotels magnificent setting as wedding venues.

On the 1st March 2104, Luton Hoo hosted a ‘Real Wedding’ event in the mansion house and invited a number of key Editors & Journalists from You & Your Wedding, Perfect Wedding Magazine, Sunday Express Magazine, Marie Claire Magazine, Your Herts & Beds Wedding Magazine and Ultimate Wedding Magazine.

We were honoured to have been invited as one the key recommended suppliers to Luton Hoo Hotel, Golf & Spa to participate in this event. Our brief was that this needed to be photographed as if it was a real wedding, with actors playing the role of Bride & Groom, Mother & Father of the Bride and Mother of the Groom, Bridesmaid and Best Man.

Lovely Words – Chris & Nicole

This is why we love our work!  When we receive written feedback from our Bride & Groom,  weeks after the wedding and honeymoon celebrations have died down and they have had time to reflect on the images we have captured of their special day.

A big thank you to Chris & Nicole for their lovely words…

The moment we met Andre and Suzanne we knew they were the photographers for our wedding day. They were friendly, helpful and understood the importance of our special day. From the first consultation through to the wedding day Andre and Suzanne were very professional and had our best interests at heart. Andre and Suzanne are a great team and it was a pleasure having them take our photos.

The photos were amazing and captured everything we could possibly ask for.  We would highly recommend BMP to friends and family“.

Many thanks,

Chris & Nicole

An exceptional combination where old tradition meets the 21st century, Fanhams Hall Hotel is a Jacobean Manor House converted into a dedicated training and meeting venue designed to be different. The hotel’s Hertfordshire location is just a short distance from all the major routes into London, Stansted, M1, M25 or simply the A10 just around the corner.
