Hazlewood Castle Wedding Photographers - Sarah and Richard

It was a pleasure to be wedding photographers at St Giles' Church, Copmanthorpe for Sarah and Richard, and to have the opportunity to work again at this pretty village church, which is only a couple of minutes away from Sarah's parents' home, where she got ready for the ceremony, along with her bridesmaids and baby daughter, Eleanor.  

We took the short drive to the church to meet Richard and after the dreadful weather of the previous week, it was fantastic to enjoy a warm and dry day.  Not only was this a very special day for the couple, it was also a very special day for Eleanor, as she was christened during the same ceremony.  We were joined by our good friends Ken and Carol Wilson from Phase 5 Productions, who captured the day on film.  We always enjoy working with them and they do a fantastic job, leaving us to get on with the photography whilst they concentrate on capturing events as they unfold.  

After the ceremony and an impressive confetti throwing effort by the guests, we left for Hazlewood Castle, where glasses of Pimm's were waiting in the courtyard for the guests to enjoy on arrival.  The canap├ęs looked good too!  As Sarah and Richard arrived in their Beauford, we did feel a few spots of rain but thankfully, it didn't amount to anything, meaning that as planned, we could photograph the groups outside in the courtyard, our favourite location for these.  As Hazlewood Castle wedding photographers, we are always spoilt for choice for backdrops to use in our photographs, but as time was short, featuring these in the couple photographs had to wait until later.  

The vibrant Cadbury purple that the Sarah and Richard had chosen as their colour scheme looked stunning in the Great Hall, and we set aside a few minutes to capture an image of the whole room, the details on the tables, and the cake before the receiving line started, followed by speeches before the wedding breakfast, which we think is a brilliant idea if any of the speakers are at all nervous.

With a few groups left to do after dinner, Sarah mentioned the possibility of doing some fun shots with their group of friends.  We're always up for this and those guys really went for it, giving us a great sequence of images which will look fantastic in the couple's wedding album.

Once everyone had gone back inside, it was lovely to have some quiet time for some couple photos and bridal portraits, around the grounds of Hazlewood Castle, before the first dance and evening party.  It was great to see Russell Shaun, the swing singer again, who along with his band, entertained the guests.

Our congratulations go to Sarah, Richard and Ellie.  We really appreciate being invited to capture your very special day.
