King's Croft Hotel Wedding Photographers | Victoria and Joanna
We had a fabulous day as King's Croft wedding photographers for Victoria and Joanna and we had really been looking forward to their celebrations. This was the second time we've been asked to photograph a wedding for the Carr family, having photographed Vicky's sister, Samantha's wedding to Chris. We were also invited to photograph their baby daughter. There were some other familiar faces amongst the guests too and it was lovely to be surrounded a warm and friendly bunch of people. Joanna had opted out of bridal prep photographs but Vicky really wanted them so we started our coverage at her parents' home, just as we had done for her sister. Vicky was keen to have some photographs ready and in her dress before we left to catch up with Joanna at the venue and start the King's Croft wedding photography. Both brides looked gorgeous! They had chosen dresses which were completely different to each other but their bouquets were identical. They each had their own bridesmaids; Vicky's dressed in pale pink and Joanna's in silver grey. The only blot on this fabulous day was the weather, which conspired to prevent the couple tying the knot in the Pavilion with their guests gathered outside. Doesn't seen too much to ask for in late June but this is the British weather for you! The venue staff held on as long as they dared before taking the decision to move the ceremony into the King's Suite, but afterwards things improved enough to allow us to photograph the groups and confetti throwing outside. The restaurant was beautifully dressed for the wedding breakfast and there were some pretty details to photograph before everyone enjoyed a delicious meal, and both dads and Lucy made their speeches. Lucy did steal the show with hers, it has to be said! During dinner the dismal weather of earlier in the day gave way to sunshine and the grass dried enough for us to venture into the gardens with Victoria and Joanna and their bridesmaids for some couple photographs and fun shots. Mrs and Mrs Carr-Will's wedding oozed happiness and a touch of craziness too. Just how a wedding should be and it was obvious what a brilliant time everyone had. A huge thank you to Margaret and Brian and Vicky and Joanna for allowing us to share it and thanks to your guests for keeping us entertained, giving us some great photo opportunities and for making us laugh! It was an absolute pleasure to share this special day!
