Rowan and Mary-Lyn get married at Hartford

Hartford House is charming in every season and it was an absolute treat to work there again photographing Rowan and Mary-Lyn’s Summer wedding.  The wedding was a stylish yet informal event with a relaxed feel.  Rowan and Mary-lyn said their vows surrounded by their nearest and dearest,  in a beautiful garden ceremony under a canopy of Oak and sycamore trees.  It was pretty much your perfect day.  Mary-lyn and Rowan you were both delightful to work with and we wish you all the very best for your future together.
