Waterton Park Wedding Photographer | Laura and Paul's Wedding

We were very happy to be chosen by Laura and Paul as their Waterton Park wedding photographers, a favourite venue of ours, and one of several local venues where we are recommended.  Laura got ready at home and we received a warm welcome from everyone when we arrived to photograph the bridal preparations and the details, including a gorgeous Justin Alexander wedding gown.  A trusting Laura gave Paul free reign to choose his own outfit, which she had no idea about, and on meeting him to start with the wedding photography at Walton Hall we were pretty impressed with his choice of a dark blue suit with an orange buttonhole, orange socks and an orange and blue tie to tie :) everything together.  Just as we finished the photos with the lads, Laura and the girls arrived in style on a vintage bus.  We always appreciate a bride's early arrival but Laura was so early that the driver had to tuck the bus out of sight (not easy) so that none of the guests caught a glimpse of her before the ceremony started.  It was one of those days when we were prepared for shower dodging, but days like these feature those fantastic, dramatic stormy skies which add so much to the couple and bridal portraits.  After confetti throwing we snatched a few minutes alone with the couple by the lakeside as the guests headed over the bridge and onto the island for celebration drinks and group pictures. We just managed to get the big group shot and family photos in the bag when the heavens opened, forcing a race under the cover of the main entrance to Walton Hall for the bridal party photos.  The Walton Suite looked lovely dressed for the wedding breakfast and the couple had opted for a small top cake and cupcakes, which looked amazing and tasted delicious (we got to try one at Laura's insistence before we left in the evening).  The cakes were expertly designed and made by Karen, The Vintage Cake Fairy, who we can't recommend highly enough.  We had a torrential downpour during dinner, which came as no surprise, but we were thankful it had stopped by the time everyone came downstairs, as some fun shots were on Laura and Paul's wish list and it was also a good time to capture some natural, relaxed photos of the two of them with their daughter, Pippa. The long daylight hours are so welcome and we loved spending time with Mr and Mrs Ruse creating some beautiful images taking in the backdrops that this amazing venue has to offer.  Laura wasn't too confident about being photographed but admitted that she had loved the experience, which is exactly what we work hard to achieve.  Congratulations to you both.  We wish you many years of happiness together.
