Wedding Photographer Rogerthorpe Manor

Wedding photography at Rogerthorpe Manor for Rachel and Todd on 8 August 2010

Our second wedding of the weekend saw a big improvement in the weather for the marriage of Rachel and Todd.  As Rogerthorpe Manor wedding photographers we always enjoy photographing weddings there.  With a great couple, a lovely venue and perfect photography weather, we knew we were going to have a fabulous day.

As wedding photographers in Castleford, we are literally two minutes away from Rachel and Todd's house, so we didn't have far to travel to meet up with Rachel, her bridesmaids and her mum Elaine to document Rachel getting ready before we set off for Rogerthorpe Manor in Badsworth to take Todd's mind off his pre-wedding jitters!  He looked very smart in his navy uniform.

We were delighted when we found out that Jane Milner from Pontefract was the registrar who would be marrying Rachel and Todd.  A free reign to photograph the ceremony as we wanted to get the best pictures for the couple is something Jane very generously allows and we and the couples she marries always appreciate her kindness.

Following the ceremony, the guests enjoyed champagne and canapes on the lawn.  The weather was kind and the large number of guests worked with us to get Rachel and Todd's group photographs done quickly and smoothly, leaving plenty of time for the newly married couple's photographs together and some fun with the bridal party.

Rachel had chosen a gorgeous ice blue colour scheme and the wedding breakfast room looked absolutely stunning!  The detail on the wedding cake was beautiful.

As the guests sat down for dinner, we were treated to a Sunday carvery in the Jacobean pub adjoining Rogethorpe Manor.  It was delicious!  Thank you Rachel and Todd for arranging this for us.

After the speeches, the couple joined us for some relaxed and romantic photographs together, enjoyed the company of their guests and made the most of the late summer sunshine.

A casino is a great idea to entertain the guests in the evening.

Rachel and Todd didn't have a dance routine, but Todd spontaneously lifting Rachel and spinning her round made for some great shots!

Thank you Mr and Mrs Barry for inviting us to share your wedding day and for being such a pleasure to work with.  We had an wonderful day with you all and we are very excited about designing your Italian storybook wedding album.
