Waterton Park Wedding Photographer | Emma and Richard

As recommended Waterton Park wedding photographers, it was great to return to this pretty venue for Emma and Richard's celebrations.  Emma got ready there and we spent some time with her in the morning as she had her hair and make-up done.  Her dress was beautiful and she had a spectacular shower bouquet of purple orchids.  What really struck us about Emma was her stunning smile which shone all day long.  The joy in her face throughout the entire day was just lovely to see. 

Richard arrived at the church just as we did, allowing us to photograph him and his attendants well before Emma's arrival with her dad and the start of the wedding photography at All Hallows', Kirkburton, our first time working at this church.  It's always a pleasure and something of a relief to work with vicars who are friendly and accommodating, and Emma and Richard's vicar was wonderful, bringing humour and personality to the ceremony, and allowing us, as a two photographer team, to document the proceedings from the front and from the back as the couple tied the knot.

Emma and Richard were keen to have a few of our more arty photographs and at our consultation around a month before the wedding, we'd seen an arched doorway at the church and this resulted in an idea for a spectacular bridal portrait, which was firmly planted in our minds and very much on our to do list.  We just hoped that the weather would play ball.  If anything, it was too sunny, and this creates its own challenges but it's definitely much better than the wet stuff!

After the confetti throwing at the church gate, we left to start the Waterton Park wedding photography, and Pauline, the wedding co-ordinator, was there to welcome the couple and their guests to a champagne reception on the island.  Emma and Richard had a few photos together until everyone had arrived, and we worked quickly through the group photos they had asked for, leaving some time for fun shots with the bridal party.  Our aim with these is to get a sequence of animated images with happy expressions for the couple's storybook, and we weren't disappointed!

As regular wedding photographers at Waterton Park, we know that there are some must have locations for bride and groom portraits, including the stone archway at the lakeside, so straight after the wedding breakfast we dashed out with Emma and Richard to make use of the last of the daylight for their romantic couple photo session, before the first dance and evening party in the Boathouse downstairs.

Our congratulations on your marriage and our sincere thanks for choosing us to share your big day.  We look forward to seeing you on your return from honeymoon.
