Wedding Photography at Hazlewood Castle for Kate and Chris

Kate was very organised, booking us as her Hazlewood Castle wedding photographers almost two years before the big day, which was wise because as a Saturday in June, it was one of those dates that's extremely popular.  We hit it off big time with Kate and Chris, who were more than complimentary about our work, and we were very excited about photographing their wedding at their gorgeous venue where we are recommended.  It was lovely to work again with Andrew and Gail from A & G Productions, and along with Gail, we spent some time with the girls as they got ready.  There were some beautiful details to capture, including a spectacular 1920's style beaded gown, a pair blue and silver shoes and the biggest bouquet of roses and hydrangeas we have ever seen.  It was truly stunning (and very heavy!)  Kate's had mentioned that her dress would be "different" and it really did have the Wow! factor - a heavily beaded gown reminiscent of the Art Deco period and in keeping with the Downton Abbey theme the couple had chosen.  We started the wedding photography at Hazlewood Castle with Chris and the boys when they arrived at the venue in a vintage bus.  They looked so smart in dinner suits, dress shirts and bow ties.  A beaming Kate and her proud dad arrived in style, expertly chauffeured by Robert of Rolls Hire Vintage Limousines.  The couple tied the knot in a civil ceremony in the Victoria Room whilst the majority of guests took their seats in the chapel ready for the blessing that followed, conducted by the Rev Ian Walton, in his own unique and humorous style.  The challenging weather of this "summer" just about behaved itself when it mattered, allowing everyone to enjoy the the Champagne reception and us to take photos outside, before we returned indoors to photograph the Great Hall.  This great couple were so enthusiastic about their photographs and we had such a brilliant day with them.  Kate was something of a natural in front of the camera and she and Chris were a joy to photograph.  Hazlewood Castle has so much to offer, especially when the weather's good.  The architecture really appeals to us and suits our style.  We were excited about getting back outside after the wedding breakfast but we just had to photograph Kate sitting in the window in the Victoria Room first.  What a beautiful album Mr and Mrs France are going to have.  A massive thank you for inviting us to be part of your gorgeous wedding!
