Wedding Photography at Oulton Hall for Jenny and Dean

We are really happy to be booked by Jenny and Dean as their Oulton Hall wedding photographers on a popular date in June, and very flattered that the booking came about by kind recommendation from another photographer.  After chatting with the couple about their plans - and in secret with Jenny about a surprise she had planned for Dean - we knew theirs would be a really interesting day with plenty of photo opportunities.  The girls got ready upstairs and discussed whether Jenny had managed to keep the helicopter she'd booked for Dean a secret from him.  We photographed the dress, shoes and flowers and then made sure we were on the golf course a few minutes ahead of Dean's stylish arrival. The couple married in a civil ceremony in the Repton Room and afterwards everyone celebrated outside with Champagne before launching an impressive volley of confetti over the new Mr and Mrs Bowyer.  Jenny looked gorgeous in her vintage style lace dress and she had shared with us some ideas about the type of photographs she wanted - arty, romantic and the couple as a small element within a surrounding scene - and the ones she didn't want - anything cheesy and not too many smiling for the camera.  We tried hard to visualise the Oulton Hall wedding photographs which would best appeal to Jenny, whilst keeping to the elegant and classic style we are well known for, and we decided that as the weather forecast was risky later on, that it would be best to work outside as much as possible before the wedding breakfast, leaving the interior shots for later.  This worked well, as it did start to drizzle during the early evening, which was our cue to spend some relaxed and quiet time photographing Jenny and Dean on the gallery and staircase before everyone headed to the Claret Jug for the evening party, which featured a casino and later, a surprise for everyone, a spectacular firework display, although by that time it was tipping it down, but we were determined that we would get some great images to complete the couple's storybook. Thank you so much for booking us to capture your wedding celebrations at your beautiful venue and congratulations on your marriage!
