Rogerthorpe Manor Wedding Photographers

Wedding photography at St Cuthbert's Church, Ackworth and Rogerthorpe Manor for Rebecca and Sam on 15 August 2010

It was our pleasure to capture Rebecca and Sam's wedding at the beautiful St Cuthbert's church in Ackworth.  As Pontefract wedding photographers, it was lovely to work there again.

Rebecca's mum, Kay is a photographer and one of Rebecca's brothers teaches photography at college.  No pressure there then!  Seriously, it was such a privilege to be chosen to photograph Rebecca and Sam's wedding and to be trusted so much that Kay was banned from bringing a "proper" camera to her daughter's wedding!

We started the day at Kay and Frank's house where Rebecca and the girls were getting ready.  Rebecca had chosen a stunning princess wedding dress - wow!

We met up with Sam and his brothers for photographs at St Cuthbert's church before the arrival of Rebecca and Sam's cute little son, accompanied by his grandparents. 

There was one very special request - please try and get a picture of him in his suit because he probably won't be in it for very  long!

Rebecca had no idea what kind of car would be bringing her to church, because it was a surprise from her mum.  She arrived in a beautiful Beauford, along with brothers, James and Richard, who's privilege it was to give their little sister away.  Their walk up the aisle was accompanied by Sam's brass band mates playing which sounded incredible.  The Rev Roland Taylor, who conducted a lovely ceremony for the couple, generously allowed photography from the front and the back of the church and we got some amazing images!

Following the ceremony, the newly married couple had a few shots taken with close family, followed by some really impressive confetti throwing at the church gate.

On arrival at Rogerthorpe Manor and with perfect weather all day, the rest of the groups were quickly taken care of with the help of Kay, James and Richard and their excellent organising, leaving time for some photographs of Rebecca and Sam together around the hotel grounds.

The gorgeous girls...

Following the wedding breakfast, there were some great speeches, in particular the one from James and Richard in which they told everyone how they used to wind Rebecca up when she was small, including a hilarious story about monkey eggs!!!!!!

Rebecca and Sam were such a pleasure to photograph and Rebecca is a fantastic, bubbly lady who was really enthusiastic about posing for the camera - something she's been used to all her life, having a mum who's a photographer!  It was so enjoyable to create something just a bit different.  She looked amazing!  Hope you like this Beci!

The couple had hired a band called The Solicitors to provide their evening entertainment and shortly before they started performing, Mr and Mrs Fisher took to the floor for their fun first dance.  Thank you for giving us the opportunity to capture your fabulous day.  It was awesome!
