Hertfordshire is a beautiful county, steeped in history and surrounded by areas of outstanding natural beauty. With plenty of beautiful wedding venues in the county it’s a great place to start your wedding venue search.
There is one Hertfordshire wedding venue that I’m in love with, it has an abundance of character & history, it is unique in design and it ticks all the important boxes that couples look for in a wedding venue. The venue I’m talking about is Kings Chapel in Amersham.
The Kings Chapel is a 17th century building originally used as a chapel (of course), which means the building is full of beautiful design details. The main room, now used for ceremonies and wedding breakfasts, has incredible high ceilings and tall windows that flood the room in natural light. There is also a large open balcony in the main hall, which offers a great opportunity to capture images from above during the wedding ceremony.
It not only has the stunning main hall but a beautiful ornate side room, which is used for the drinks reception and evening party. From here you climb a couple of stairs to reach a lovely little bar tucked away around the corner.
Anna & Kevin got married at Kings Chapel in February last year and had a colourful and very personal wedding with 70 of their closest family and friends. They put so much time and thought into their wedding and created lots of beautiful handmade details to make their day unique.
My favourite was the hundreds of handmade multi-coloured paper cranes that were painstakingly folded by Anna & Kevin and hung from the balcony to decorate the ceremony. As if that wasn’t enough they also invested time and love into making personalised cross stitched favours for each of their guests. They were a huge hit with the guests and a great talking point to get the conversation started at the table.
They went brave with colour and got the wonderful Sorcha from Sorcha Herbert Flowers to create bold coloured floral displays to decorate the key features within the venue.
I love how Anna & Kevin managed to create such an elegant yet fun and colourful style for their wedding. I really was a beautifully unique day handmade with love.
If you’re planning a DIY wedding then I hope this blog has inspired you to go bold and think outside of the box. Don’t be afraid to follow your heart and your vision but be sure to plan your time well, these things can take time.
