Wedding Photographer Nostell Priory | Claire and Andy's Wedding
It was a pleasure to return as Nostell Priory wedding photographers to capture Claire and Andy's celebrations as they tied the knot in a civil ceremony in the main house before making the walk to the recently refurbished building which had originally been the stable block and which is now a lovely reception venue. Before the Nostell Priory wedding photography started, we dropped in on the girls as they got ready in the Gamekeeper's Cottage at Waterton Park Hotel. Claire has chosen a fabulous princess style dress and a gorgeous colour scheme of deep blue, accented by bright yellow. She and her bridesmaids were very much up for a giggle and we knew that we'd have a brilliant day in their company. We caught up with Andy and the boys outside the house and managed to persuade the couple's son, Tyler-Jake, to allow dad a cuddle so we could capture a few lovely images of father and son, and then the bridesmaids arrived slightly ahead of Claire and her dad, giving us just enough time to photograph them before Claire's car appeared on the drive and the registrars came down to meet her. The weather was about as perfect as any bride and groom could wish for and after the big group photo of everyone, and some car shots, the guests were invited into the rose garden to enjoy the drinks reception, confetti throwing and beautiful weather. With generous time factored in, we got the group photos done and still had time to steal Claire and Andy and take them back to the main house for some uninterrupted photographs together before the wedding breakfast. The room looked vibrant and summery dressed in yellow and we're sure the alcoholic favours went down a treat! After the speeches we created some images on the gallery before going outside into the early evening sunshine. We love this time of year because even though you can never guarantee good weather, even in summer, the long daylight hours bring with them the chance to get outside again well before it falls dark and make the most of the locations venues have to offer. After some fun with the bridal party we went down to the lakeside for Mr and Mrs Pollington's evening portrait session. Claire made us laugh as she insisted on ditching her Vivienne Westwood shoes and making the trip barefoot! Just a short time and some stunning images later, we returned this lovely couple back to their wedding guests, their first dance and their evening party. Thank you very much for choosing us. We can't wait to design an album for you which is going to be spectacular!
