Wedding Photography Bagden Hall | Melanie and Richard

Summer seemed to take a long time to arrive this year but it finally burst in on Melanie and Richard's wedding day.  As experienced Bagden Hall wedding photographers we know that this venue has beautiful grounds offering great locations for photographs but during the early afternoon the light was very harsh, meaning that certain photographs we had planned would wait until after the wedding breakfast when the light had softened.  Melanie got ready at her parents' home and we were warmly welcomed by her mum and sister, as Melanie had her hair and make-up done.  After we'd taken photographs of this, Melanie's gorgeous dress and accessories and a few lovely shots as Melanie's dad saw his daughter in her wedding dress for the first time, we left the girls to their final preparations and set off to meet Richard and his best man to begin the wedding photography at Bagden Hall. Before the wedding Melanie wouldn't let anyone into the secret of what kind of car she and her dad were going to arrive in.  She had chosen an elegant Rolls Royce from Rolls Hire Vintage Limousines.  The couple married in an intimate civil ceremony in the restaurant with their closest family and friends around them.  Afterwards Melanie and Richard left everyone and enjoyed a ride in the Rolls Royce and when they arrived back we worked through their group photographs.  By the time we'd finished the groups the restaurant had been transformed and once we'd photographed this, the cake and the table details, the receiving line started.  As creative Wakefield wedding photographers we're always on the look out for opportunities for stunning wedding photographs which make our work stand out, and as soon as we'd arrived at Bagden Hall we'd spotted the meadow near the lake.  It always looks different depending on the time of year and now it was full of bright yellow buttercups. There had been no time to make the most of it earlier in the day and in any case, the early evening brought with it beautiful soft light, a bit of time and the opportunity to get something really special.  The guests were treated to a selection of delicious ice creams, as Melanie and Richard had hired Graham and Lisa of A Taste if Italy to come along in the evening and set up their cart in the grounds.    Apparently, the banana flavour was the couple's favourite and the strawberry was delicious too!  Mr and Mrs Tanfield danced their first dance together and we ended their coverage with a some photographs of the two of them at the entrance to Bagden Hall.  Thank you so much for booking us to capture your special day.

Getting married at Bagden Hall?  We would love to hear from you.
