Waterton Park Hotel wedding photography

Its always with a sense of excitement mixed with a little trepidation when I arrive at a new venue! arriving for my first Waterton Park Hotel wedding photography for the wedding of Carl and Kirsty my worries melted away, greeted by the stunning island setting of this fabulous 17th century house and its wonderful waterside setting. The day was already warm and the forecast promised high temperatures, a perfect bank holiday Sunday for a wedding..

The girls were nice and relaxed, having been awake and getting ready from just after 5am! Hair stylist Hannah Taylor was busy at work as was make up artist Kelsey Rowland making the girls look simply sensational. Kirsty was incredibly relaxed the whole morning, even as the time arrived to climb into the exquisite Phoenix gown supplied by Fluttery Bridal Boutique Kirsty was still all smiles and laughter, a model bride :-)

With the Kirsty, mum Claire and sister Adele along with the rest of the bridesmaids happily making their final preparations I headed over to Carl and bestman Mike. As relaxed as they could be I stole them away from the rest of the ushers for a few moments of pre-ceremony images as they put their final touches together, including the immaculate button holes created by Sarah at Hibiscus Flowers. As everyone began to gather in the suite for the ceremony the nerves and emotions began, Carl unable to hold back the tears as his beautiful bride made her way towards him.

After the ceremony the party moved outdoors to enjoy the glorious day, drinks were enjoyed on the lawns as the team from Blue Horseshoe Weddings placed the final touches to the wedding breakfast room. With the arrival of the new Mr & Mrs Long the customary speeches began, Kirsty’s dad Andy giving a very emotional speech following by Carl and his touching sentiments towards his mum and dad and new inlaws.

The day swiftly moved along and after completing the obligatory family formal pictures I managed a few moments with my bride and groom around the lawns and terraces of Waterton Hall. The day concluded with superb live music and dancing in the Boathouse, a few evening pictures in the golden light of the setting sun and my first Waterton Park Hotel wedding photography adventure was complete. A truly joyous day with a lovely happy couple who made my job so very easy… Thank you for having me along Mr & Mrs Long.
