Wedding Photographer Rogerthorpe Manor | Rebecca & Simon
It seemed that summer had finally arrived just in time for Rebecca and Simon's big day and we couldn't believe our luck, with wall to wall sunshine all day long. Beautiful weather certainly puts a smile on everyone's face and the couple couldn't have wished for a better day for their celebrations.
As Rogerthorpe Manor wedding photographers, we love the venue and as their recommended photographers, we have a relationship with the staff that means a lot to us so it was great to be back, starting with Becky's preparations with her bridesmaids. It was a hive of activity with a make-up and hair styling "production line" going on, as well as lots of laughter and a fair bit of champagne tasting (the girls, not the photographers)!
Simon arrived with his attendants and the warm weather meant everyone was in good spirits and up for some fun which is what we love - fun weddings and lovely people. We kept Simon busy for a few minutes to take his mind off any pre-ceremony nerves and Simon, you obviously took notice of our advice on how to help us get the perfect ring shot for Becky. You nailed it!
As professional West Yorkshire wedding photographers, meeting our clients' wishes is vital to us and we met with Becky and Simon a few weeks before their big day to talk about timings, what they had planned, important group photos and what they would ideally like from us. It was fantastic to hear that their wedding photographs were extremely important to them and they gave us the freedom to suggest anything we wanted and said they would be happy to go along with any ideas we came up with.
Time was short between the end of the ceremony and the start of the wedding breakfast but with good co-operation from the guests, we just managed to complete all the groups, fun photos with a great bridal party, confetti and a few shots of the new Mr and Mrs Foster, planning to concentrate on their couple photo session later.
With a mid-day civil ceremony in the Lawrence Suite, meaning we had plenty of free time after the wedding breakfast, wall to wall sunshine and a fabulous, enthusiastic couple, we suggested to Becky and Simon a short journey out together for a few romantic and artistic photographs for them in a nearby rape field. It's unusual for the rape to still be in bloom at the end of May but it seems that many plants are flowering later due to the exceptionally cold spring. The vibrant yellow flowers made a spectacular backdrop for some special photographs for the couple and Simon was very complimentary as he watched us create some artistic portraits for his bride.
On our return to Rogerthorpe Manor, the couple had some time out with their guests to enjoy a bottle or two of Foster's lager, before Becky was raring to go again. She gathered her friends together for some fun girlie shots before giving us a twirl in her gorgeous princess dress.
A most sincere thank you Becky and Simon, not only for choosing us to capture your beautiful wedding day but for being such a pleasure to work with, for smiling all day and for giving us such great feedback. We hope you love your preview images and we look forward to seeing you soon.
