We were very privileged to be chosen as the couple's wedding photographers and to be given an insight into the moving story of how they met, fell for each other, and completely turned their lives around, all in the space of a year. Charlotte was beside herself with joy and excitement each time we chatted, telling us about her plans and showing us pictures of all the little details she had chosen. We very much wanted to reflect her excitement in the couple's photos.
We love being Waterton Park wedding photographers as this beautiful venue offers so much variety for photographs, having architecture, greenery and a stunning lakeside setting to use as backdrops. Charlotte got ready at the venue and she had lots of details for us to photograph, as well as a gorgeous princess style dress, before we headed over the bridge and onto the island to take Mark's pictures.
During our planning meeting before the wedding, Charlotte expressed a dislike of traditional group photos, preferring a more fun and informal approach. The couple decided on a big group shot of everyone, incorporating a spectacular balloon release, and then just a few smaller groups to be taken after the ceremony, with the emphasis on showing the personalities of the people in the groups, with, well, some interesting and hilarious results!
With the weather on our side, we planned the main couple photo session for after the wedding breakfast, but there was a little time beforehand for some bride and groom photos before we went in to photograph the County Suite which looked beautiful dressed in orange and Tiffany blue. This will make a lovely image for Charlotte and Mark's storybook album, along with the pretty details which were on the tables. The speeches were both funny and emotional, with Charlotte's dad making his daughter crack up with laughter one minute and shed tears the next.
Mr and Mrs Taylor enjoyed their romantic portrait session in the softer early evening light and we made the most of the backdrops that Walton Hall wedding photography has to offer, before they rejoined their guests for the evening party. Charlotte's brother Ben grabbed his sister for some impressive moves around the dance floor before the bride and groom danced their first dance as husband and wife. Our sincere thanks to Charlotte and Mark for choosing us to capture their very special day.
