Wedding Photographers at the King's Croft, Pontefract

Wedding photography at the King's Croft Hotel, Pontefract for Adele and Peter on 31 August 2010

As wedding photographers in West Yorkshire, the King's Croft is one of our local wedding venues and today it was a pleasure to join Adele and Peter as they tied the knot.

We met up with Adele and were greeted by a hive of activity with a lot of people going about their preparations.  Adele had chosen a wedding gown to cause a stir - it was some impressive dress!  There were no flowers because Adele isn't keen on them, so instead, she chose a bouquet made entirely of clear and black crystals which complimented the very elegant black and white colour scheme perfectly.

This was the first wedding we have ever photographed where, due to his commitments, we had not met the groom before the day and as we hadn't had the opportunity to get to know Peter beforehand, we were aware that we needed to help him to quickly feel relaxed and confident with us.  We needn't have worried, as Peter was an absolute pleasure to spend time with, very quickly getting into the swing of things and really enjoying his photo session. 

Adele and Peter's wedding plans hadn't exactly gone smoothly.  However, they couldn't have wished for a better day or better weather, so maybe it was meant to be.  As well as it being their wedding day, it was also very much about their two fantastic sons, with the focus of the day being very firmly on family.  Adele and Peter are an amazing couple and it's so obvious how devoted they are to eachother and to their boys.

Adele and Peter were married in a very personal civil ceremony in the Queen's Suite, beautifully conducted by the lovely Rosalyn Field who we love working with.  She does make a wedding ceremony very special.

A lucky chimney sweep greets the newly married couple.

After the group shots were in the bag, we took Adele and the rest of the girls for some fun.  The girls were really up for playing to the camera and as Pontefract wedding photographers who love a happy, relaxed wedding, this was something we really enjoyed.  You lot made us laugh!

After the wedding breakfast and the speeches, we made the most of the warm summer evening to have some fun with Adele and got her to really show off that stunning dress!


The new Mr and Mrs Middleton took to the floor for a fast and lively first dance - the first of four!  One for themselves, one for each of their boys and one for the Adele and the girls.  A wonderful wedding full of fun, love, laughter and the importance of family.  Congratulations to you both and a big thank you for allowing us the privilege of being there to capture your celebrations.

If you are family or friends of Adele and Peter, please leave a nice comment for them.
