King's Croft Hotel Wedding Photography - Kay and Gary

I've known Kay for many years and it was lovely to receive a call from her telling us that she and Gary were getting married.  They had chosen a local wedding venue for their civil ceremony and reception, and one that is very familiar to us as King's Croft wedding photographers.  We were delighted that they booked us to capture their special day.

We started off at the couple's home just a few minutes away from ours in Castleford. Amongst other pretty accessories, Kay had a pair of gorgeous lace shoes and a beautiful bottle of perfume.  She was fastened into her dress by Heidi from the bridal gown shop and we had plenty of time to capture this and a few portraits before we set off to meet Gary and start the wedding photography at the King's Croft Hotel.  

Thankfully it stayed dry but it was very windy and we chose areas of shelter near the trees for the boys' photographs.  However, this was a bit risky and we had a good laugh with Gary and his best man, Neil, as we tried hard to avoid being hit by the numerous falling conkers!  Kay's daughter, Maddie, and best friend, Cheryl, arrived a few minutes ahead of Kay and her son, Ellis, who proudly gave his mum away, enabling us to capture some images of the girls before the ceremony got underway.

As always, the Pontefract registrars were brilliant, incredibly friendly and accommodating towards us, allowing us to capture some beautiful moments as Kay and Gary tied the knot, after which the newly married couple and their guests came outside to a Bucks Fizz and Becks drinks reception.  It was lovely to see quite a few familiar faces amongst the guests.

We left everyone for a short time so that the couple could have some photographs with the fabulous Rolls Royce they'd hired, expertly chauffeured by Robert Hepworth from Rolls Hire Vintage Limousines, who, as always, was very helpful to us in positioning the car exactly where we wanted it, before we returned to the main gardens for the group and couple photos.  

Due to time constraints and the fact that it's getting dark much earlier now, Kay and Gary decided to use the time available and the remaining daylight for more photographs outside rather than having photographs of the King's Suite set up for the wedding breakfast.  We came back to capture their speeches and afterwards, as the light faded, we set up near the lake for some twilight photos, finishing our coverage after the new Mr and Mrs Carr had impressed everyone with their first dance waltz.

Thank you Kay and Gary for choosing us to capture your lovely autumn wedding day, and thank you Neil, Gary's best man, for the invaluable and much appreciated help you gave us.
