Wedding Photography Oulton Hall | Elizabeth & Thomas

As recommended Oulton Hall wedding photographers, we're always really excited about working at this gorgeous venue, with the added bonus that it's only a short drive from home.  Liz and Tom chose the Oulton Suite for their civil ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening celebrations, so it was nice to arrive for Liz's preparations knowing that everything would be at the same location.  We always receive a warm welcome from the staff, they are very obliging and helpful and this is something that's really important, especially when the weather is unkind, which was the case today.  The wedding co-ordinators arranged to have the Orangery cleared so that we could photograph the family groups indoors straight after the ceremony and keep everyone warm and comfortable in the process.  It was drizzling for much of the day but Oulton Hall is one of those rare venues where poor weather doesn't create too much of a problem, offering as it does, some incredible backdrops for photographs inside.  After capturing the activity as the girls got ready, we met up with a slightly nervous Tom and his attendants who, despite the rain, were up for a laugh and although we would like to think that we kept them entertained, it was just as much the other way round!  After the civil ceremony, conducted by lovely, friendly registrars, we got on with capturing the groups the couple had asked for.  We knew that Liz had gone to a lot of trouble to provide dried flower petal confetti in cones for every guest, so we were really keen to make sure that her efforts paid off.  The rain had eased a little and even though it was freezing cold and windy, the guests obliged with a fabulous shower of confetti outside, resulting in some great images for the couple's album.  As the entrance to Oulton Hall is such a brilliant place for photographs and because Liz and Tom wanted some fun images to reflect their personalities, we suggested that the bridal party, including the couple's two beautiful daughters, Evie and Lucy, joined us at the front for a few minutes. After everyone else made a run for it to get back inside and into the warmth, we grabbed a few quick shots of Liz and Tom together.  We know you guys were freezing but thank you for being such great fun to work with!  After the wedding breakfast and speeches, it was a good time for a romantic couple photo session for the new Mr and Mrs Latham and an opportunity to make the most of the staircase, gallery and lift for some artistic images, before the evening party started.  Our grateful thanks Liz and Tom for choosing us to share your special day.
