Wedding photography Wakefield Cathedral - Wedding photography Walton Hall - Caroline and Michael - 18 September 2010
Our second wedding of the weekend saw us join Caroline at her parents' house in Wakefield as she and the girls got ready. Her gorgeous wedding dress was hanging in the bedroom and her perfume bottle made us smile - it was very appropriate. Caroline's make-up artist and hair stylist were still busy pampering her when we had to leave for Wakefield Cathedral to meet up with the boys. We kept Mike and his attendants occupied for a few minutes, taking his mind of any pre-ceremony jitters. A new wedding venue for us and after a quick chat with the lovely vicar, we were delighted to have free reign to photograph the wedding ceremony from the front and from the back. Caroline was expertly chauffeured to the cathedral with her proud dad by Robert Hepworth in an elegant, classic Rolls Royce, courtesy of Rolls Hire. We love their cars!! As always, it was a pleasure to work with Robert again, as he always does everything he can to help us get some good shots of the couple with the car. Following a beautiful wedding ceremony, the newly married Mr and Mrs Rochford exited the cathedral, had a few group photographs taken and were showered with confetti. The couple and their guests mingled for a while before travelling to Waterton Park for the wedding reception. The weather was breezy and the threat of rain did hang ominously over the proceedings but we managed to capture the remaining group shots that the couple had requested, along with some beautiful images of Caroline and Mike together around the grounds of Walton Hall with its fabulous backdrops for wedding photographs,without getting wet! After the wedding breakfast and speeches, heavy rain had decided to make an appearance so we spent some time with the couple taking some romantic shots and bridal portraits on the staircase - the ideal location to show off Caroline's dress with its long train. She looked beautiful. After capturing the couple's first dance, we couldn't leave without taking a few photographs as Caroline partied with her sister, Liz. Caroline and Mike are now on honeymoon and Caroline has the job of editing her own wedding video when they come back! Thank you for choosing us to capture your special day.
