Rogerthorpe Manor Wedding Photographers | Lisa & David's Wedding Photography
As recommended Rogerthorpe Manor wedding photographers, it's always a pleasure to work at this lovely venue and we were delighted when Wayne told his friends, Lisa and Dave about us and our work. Lisa and Dave came to see us and booked us on the spot which made our day.
The morning of the wedding, we arrived at the couple's house where their son, Jack, was full of energy and running round without a care in the world. The ladies were under a bit more pressure, having their hair styled and getting ready for the wedding.
We arrived at Rogerthorpe Manor to meet the boys. Dave, Wayne and Darren have been close friends for many years and so it was a given that there would be two best men. Wayne had another job as well as that of best man. He runs Class Laser Clay and set this up as a gift for Dave and Lisa. If you fancy entertainment with a difference that's great fun and safe for everyone, we can highly recommend it.
As unpredictable as the April weather is, the hailstones which fell as we were waiting for Lisa and her dad to arrive were pretty unexpected and pretty unwelcome too. Thankfully, they stopped a couple of minutes before our bride's car appeared. Typically, it stayed dry throughout the civil ceremony in the Lawrence Suite and then decided to throw some light drizzle our way just as we started the group photos. Lisa and Dave took it all in their stride and thanks to the assistance of Wayne and Darren who held umbrellas over each assembled group, whipped them away just before each shot was taken and then put them back again, we got all the group photographs in the can in very little time and without the need to work indoors. Guys, you were stars!
Lisa and Dave were fantastic to work with and were up for trying anything including some fun photographs with their best men and Lisa's sisters, Sharon and Natalie, who were bridesmaids and luckily, by now, the rain had stopped allowing us to ditch the brollies and use some of the backdrops at Rogerthorpe Manor for photographs of the couple together before the wedding breakfast. The Lawrence Suite had been beautifully and expertly dressed by Stacey Benson of Chantilly Weddings. Stacey's a lovely lady, does a brilliant job and her services are highly recommended.
After dinner, the sun came out, it was warm and dry and we captured some reportage photographs as the children (and some adult size kids!) played on the lawn before we borrowed the new Mr and Mrs Bridges for some photographs together and enjoyed our favourite time on a wedding day - creative, romantic, relaxed couple photography time.
A first dance and exploding balloon was the finale to their big day but we couldn't leave without taking a few evening photographs. Lisa and Dave, your wedding day was fantastic. Thank you for asking us to share it with you and for looking after us so well.
