Wedding Photographers Rockliffe Hall | Helen and Chris's Wedding

We were delighted to be chosen by Helen and Chris as their Rockliffe Hall wedding photographers.  We love working at new venues and during our recce of this stunning hotel we knew we'd be spoilt for choice, with some great places both indoors and out.  On the day we were lucky that the weather held for us and allowed us to work outside at the locations we'd chosen for Rockliffe Hall wedding photographs before the wedding breakfast when we still had daylight, leaving the indoor portraits for the early evening.  We love it when we have a bubbly and fun bride, as enthusiastic about her photographs as Helen was.  With everything at one venue, we caught up with her and the girls, and the make-up artists, and Kevin, the hair stylist, in the bridal suite, as they painted faces and twirled hair.  Kevin is a very funny guy and he provided lots of giggles as we all worked, and he continued to make us laugh later on in Chris's room, as he gave our groom's hair its finishing touches.  The boys met up with us outside for their photographs, we allowed enough time to get back to Helen's room afterwards and it was lovely to watch two proud dads as they saw her in her spectacular Ian Stuart dress for the first time and then walk their beautiful daughter into the ceremony. Being a two photographer team means we can photograph the wedding ceremony from two different viewpoints and usually we both capture civil ceremonies from either side, at the front, but the perspective of the columns in Rockliffe Hall's orangery is so striking that we decided to photograph as we do in a church, with Alex at the front and Janet at the back, as Helen and Chris tied the knot.  Now it's fair to say that Chris wasn't quite as enthusiastic about being photographed as Helen was but he did admit that it wasn't anywhere near as bad as he'd feared.  Glad to hear that Chris! After the speeches Chris had a surprise for his bride and he really wanted a sequence of images which perfectly captured Helen's reactions as she unwrapped the fabulous Marilyn Monroe picture he'd bought for her.  We had a walk around this beautiful hotel and got some romantic couple shots and artistic bridal portraits for Helen and Chris's wedding album before first dance and party time. Congratulations Mr and Mrs Athey and thank you for letting us have the pleasure of sharing your wedding day and for looking after us so well. Such a fabulous couple who we loved working with, a cracking venue, wonderful guests and lots of fun.
