Wedding photographer Hazlewood Castle, Yorkshire

Wedding photography at Hazlewood Castle, Yorkshire for Natalie and Chris on 10 July 2010

As weddings  photographers for Hazlewood Castle, it was our pleasure to join Natalie and Chris as they tied the knot in an early morning civil ceremony in the Victoria Room, accompanied by close family and friends.  Following a few photographs outside with Natalie wearing the first of two gorgeous dresses and Chris looking very smart in suit number one, the couple went their separate ways to get ready for their blessing in the beautiful chapel of St Leonard.  As we knew that this was to be conducted by the Reverend Ian Walton, we were really looking forward to capturing this very special part of Natalie and Chris's day.  Ian is such a pleasure to work with and he knows that the photographs capturing the ceremony are so important to the couple. 

We gatecrashed Joy and Rob's, Natalie's parents' room, to photograph Natalie's stunning gown number two and her accessories.  It was a haven of peace and tranquility compared to the hive of activity going on in the room where the girls were getting ready.  It was really nice chatting with Joy and Rob whilst we completed these photographs.  We loved Natalie's bouquet of white gerberas with black and yellow centres, studded with pink diamantes - a hint at the elegant black, white and pink colour scheme she had chosen.

Next we took the short trip across the hall the Chris's room to photograph him getting ready with best man Mark before heading off outside into the courtyard to spend some time with the boys together.

With the boys' shots taken care of, we returned to Natalie to find her almost ready for her descent down the staircase on the arm of proud dad Rob.  She looked just gorgeous!

Ian's lovely, personal blessing of Natalie and Chris's marriage and a slight hiccup with the unity candle which resulted in some giggles! 

Some very impressive confetti throwing!!

After we'd finished the group shots in the courtyard, we enjoyed a stroll with Natalie and Chris around the fabulous grounds of Hazlewood Castle, choosing a few locations for their pictures.  Hazlewood Castle is a wedding photographer's paradise, as well as a newly married couple's! 

A Private Dining photograph was really important to Natalie.  We were delighted to oblige.

The girls were up for some fun...

Beautiful Natalie in her beautiful gown!

With the photographs of the Great Hall set up for the wedding breakfast, the lovely little details captured and the before dinner speeches in the can, we left everyone to enjoy dinner.

One of our favourite parts of the day is after dinner when we can spend some time around the venue taking some romantic shots.  Natalie and Chris joined us outside, the sun had gone down, the wind had dropped and we spent a relaxed half hour with them creating some romantic images featuring the castle in the background.

Thank you Mr and Mrs Wilson for choosing us to capture your big day at one of the lovelist wedding venues in Yorkshire.  You were fantastic company and we had a fantastic day with you, your families and friends.  We look forward to designing your amazing storybook wedding album
