Oulton Hall Wedding Photographers | Sarah and David's Wedding
We're always excited about providing wedding photography at Oulton Hall and we were delighted when Sarah and David booked us to photograph their celebrations at this beautiful venue. We knew it would be great fun as the couple don't take themselves too seriously and as expected, theirs was a day full of laughter and celebrations, just how a great wedding should be, with a very welcome bonus of perfect weather for most of it. Sarah had chosen a gorgeous Ronald Joyce gown and two pairs of shoes - a pair of glamorous, silver high heels for show and a pair of sparkly Converse trainers for comfort. After capturing some pretty detail shots for our bride, we tracked down David and his attendants for some portraits before the ceremony in the Oulton Suite and it was more a case of him keeping us entertained with his Geordie banter, warmth and good humour. This was a wedding packed with giggles, including a hilarious "Wey aye" moment during the ceremony! The guests enjoyed a champagne reception in the grounds whilst we worked through the groups and naturally, it was really important to Sarah and David that we captured some images of them with their son, Asher, but kids being kids, he had other ideas and much more interesting things to be getting on with than standing still having his photograph taken. Sometimes, as a professional Leeds wedding photographer, you have to employ different tactics to get the pictures you need and we got a lovely sequence of the three of them as they walked hand in hand. With an eye on the time before the wedding breakfast we managed to get some bridal photographs at Oulton Hall's main entrance and David joined Sarah for a few romantic shots together. After the wedding breakfast and the speeches we worked together to create some fine art portraits on the gallery and the staircase. The weather took a turn for the worse just as we decided to head outside again and enjoy the remaining daylight but the couple were absolute stars and went out anyway. The evening kicked off with a chocolate fountain, and fancy dress for the kids, and Sarah and David enjoyed their first dance together. We had a ball at this wedding! A groom who made us laugh, a bride who was up for anything we suggested, lovely, friendly guests, good weather (mostly!) and a favourite venue of ours. Thank you Sarah and David, such a great couple, for choosing us as your Oulton Hall wedding photographers.
