The wedding of Richard and Suzanne took place at Clumber Park Hotel in North Nottinghamshire. A very popular wedding venue, and one that we are regular visitors to.
Morning preparations were in full swing when we both arrived to capture the proceedings. As usual with two photographers, we capture both the bride and groom’s preparations simultaneously and on this occasion both were at the same location.
The natural colour scheme of greens and creams was perfect on this fresh spring morning. The bouquets were simply elegant with an abundance of cream roses, fresh foliage and freesias, their fragrance filling the air. There were plenty of details to capture, including some amazing 3D computer cuff links belonging to Richard and it was also a refreshing change to photograph gold wedding bands, which are not seen all that often nowadays.
As Suzanne and her bridesmaids were busy getting ready, Richard and his grooms party went outdoors for some informal, fun shots, and as the ceremony neared and guests were ushered inside there was just enough time to capture Suzanne with her bridesmaids and parents before she said “I do”.
After the ceremony Mr and Mrs Holt greeted their guests and were served with canapés and sparking wine and champagne. By now the sun was shining and it was the perfect opportunity to head outside into the courtyard for the groups shots. Then it was into the car as we headed out into Clumber Park. Most guests who are married at Clumber Park Hotel secure the rights to venture into the park for their couple shots. Suzanne and Richard had already pre-arranged this, therefore we made the most of the stunning backdrop, including the bridge and tree lined walkway before we all headed back to join their patiently waiting guests.
Whilst everyone was enjoying the wedding breakfast we were busy sorting through the photographs we had taken up to that point. These were promptly edited in readiness for the slideshow which would greet Richard and Suzanne’s guests later in the evening.
After the very emotional speeches the room was swiftly prepared for the evening celebrations and as the remainder of their guests joined the happy couple to celebrate, they were greeted with a large projector screen showing the images captured earlier in the day.
The cutting of the cake cut kicked off the evening celebrations and after the couple’s first dance, they were soon joined on the dance floor by other guests. Once the nighttime celebrations were well underway we headed back outdoors to capture some nights shots in the grounds of the hotel. The perfect end to a wonderful day.
Many congratulations to Mr & Mrs Holt from Karl,Marie and the team at Photography For Life.
