Laura and Al's Wedding Photography at Oulton Hall

Laura and Al married on Palm Island in the Caribbean in November.  We didn't get to capture that part of their celebrations as we couldn't fit in their suitcases, but we were delighted when they approached us during the planning of their UK wedding party and asked us if we would be their Oulton Hall wedding photographers.  Oulton Hall is a stunning venue where we always love working and it holds a very special place in the couple's hearts, as they both worked there, met there, and the rest, as they say, is history. Al is a warm hearted, southern guy and Laura is lovely, bubbly, Yorkshire lass who we first met when she was one of the wedding co-ordinators.  It's a massive compliment when a wedding co-ordinator chooses you to be her wedding photographer!  We caught up with Laura to get photographs of her dress, shoes, perfume and her spectacular engagement ring and once she'd done her make-up and was in her dress we took some bridal portraits on the gallery whilst we waited for Al to join her.  We knew that Al wasn't overly keen on being photographed but we got some fantastic portraits of him too!  After some dreadful weather and what seemed like endless rain over the previous few weeks, things improved a lot for Laura and Al's day, and it was lovely to get outside without the need for umbrellas for a change.  We enjoyed a relaxed bride and groom portrait session and some beautiful Oulton Hall wedding photography around the venue, followed by the family group photos in the warmth of the Repton Room.  The Oulton Suite had been dressed in jewel colours with details following a Caribbean theme.  There were casino tables, a Slush Puppy machine, informal speeches and a band.  We managed to get Laura and Al outside at the perfect time, as light fell, for some gorgeous, romantic, twilight images before party time and dancing.  Congratulations and thank you Mr and Mrs Briggs-Roberts for booking us for your wedding photography at Oulton Hall.
