Wedding Photography Waterton Park | Kirsty and Richard
Kirsty and Richard very kindly chose us to be their Waterton Park Hotel wedding photographerson a day fairly typical of April, with a mixture of sunshine, strong winds and rain, just to keep us on our toes. Couples like them are the reason why we love weddings so much. They laughed and smiled all day, had a great time celebrating the fact that they had finally become Mr and Mrs Graham, and they were wonderful to photograph, patiently working with us and making our job a pleasure. Their beautiful children played a huge part, with their son Keiron having the privilege of giving his mum away to his dad. The couple's lives revolve around football, Richard being a former professional player who now coaches, and naturally the football theme found its way into their wedding. As theirs was a Thursday and the only wedding that day, we got some valuable extra time outside for the wedding photographs at Walton Hall before everyone sat for the wedding breakfast. Kirsty's brother, Stuart, was great at organising everyone for the groups and his assistance meant a few minutes left afterwards to get some couple photos whilst the rain just managed to hold off, because it absolutely chucked it down during dinner. By the time Richard had been well and truly made fun of during the speeches by his two best men (always a risk having two of them), the rain had stopped and the wind had dropped and we enjoyed some quiet time with the couple, making the most of the lovely backdrops that make Waterton Park wedding photography such a pleasure. The fun and happy atmosphere continued after the first dance with a sing-song with a difference, where guests had been asked to suggest the songs they'd like to sing, and Kirsty and Richard had provided song sheets with the lyrics on so that everyone could take part. Twilight photos were in our plans regardless of the weather but because the wind had subsided, the lake was like a mirror and it made these images even more spectacular.
Congratulations Kirsty and Richard on your marriage and thank you so much for booking us. We hope you love these, a small preview of your wedding day.
