Wakefield Wedding Photographer

Sarah and Paul's wedding at the Hotel St Pierre, Newmillerdam, Wakefield on 10 October 2009

Today we were the wedding photographers for Sarah and Paul. This special day started with a warm welcome from Sarah's mum and dad, Rita and Graham, when we arrived at their house for Sarah's preparations. The weather was warm too - a lovely autumn day! Whilst we were taking photographs of Sarah's gorgeous white dress which had the most beautiful silver embroidery and her accessories including a very important Leeds United garter, Sarah arrived relaxed and calm from the hairdressers and helped her bridesmaids get ready (thought it was supposed to be the other way round!) Before leaving, we got some shots as Rita and chief bridesmaid, Alison struggled to fasten Sarah's dress and it was also nice to be able to take some portraits of our lovely bride ready. We then left for the Hotel St Pierre in Newmillerdam to meet Paul and his attendants for their photographs. A white garage door as a background for a portrait of Paul complimented the elegant black, white and silver colour scheme which the couple had chosen. After a chat with the very kind and accommodating registrar, we knew we'd have no problem getting Sarah and Paul some images to treasure from their marriage ceremony. She told us that we should just do the very best we could for the couple - our sincere thanks to her on behalf of Sarah and Paul because this is what our fantastic job is all about. After the ceremony, we left the guests for a while to go to the lakeside in Newmillerdam for photographs of the couple together. The location we chose makes such a nice backdrop for the pictures and is the same one we used for Sarah and Paul's engagement session a few weeks ago, from which they chose a photograph to display at the wedding with a signature mount for their guests to sign. Thankfully, the weather was much kinder on their wedding day! Arriving back at the hotel, we got all the guests involved in a big group shot, followed by confetti throwing and then some fun shots with the couple, chief bridesmaid and best man, before completing the family groups. After dinner and speeches, we spent some time with Sarah and Paul in their bridal suite taking some special, romantic images for them. A fabulous day in the company of a fabulous couple ended for us after their first dance. Thank you for choosing us to share your very special day. It was a privilege to join you and your lovely families.
