Saturday came and we were super excited! Not only was it Emma and David’s Wedding day, but the weather was looking hopeful for November and we were off to Stapleford Park!
We met Emma and David only a few months ago now on a Sunday. THE best thing about booking so close to the big day is that we don’t have to wait very long to photograph all of the excitement!
Our day started at Emma’s family home where she had grown up. We LOVE visiting family homes on a wedding day. So many memories (and embarrassing photos on the walls!) where better to get ready for your wedding day?
It was soon time for us to make the short journey to meet the boys at Stapleford Park. Still unready on our arrival, the boys were calm (on the outside at least) but excited.
Drinks followed as guests arrived and we photographed the day starting to unwrap. With a few shots of the groomsmen together, along with the groom on his own, it was time for us to all wait for the Brides arrival.
Arriving by classic car from Gladstone Carriages, Emma looked fantastic! Her bridal party helped her from the car and into meet the registrar. After all boxes were ticked, the short walk to the orangery where David waited patiently followed. The service was definitely one that everyone will remember. With everyone singing ‘all you need is love’, the ceremony was a room full of smiles!
As the champagne flowed in the afternoon, it was time for those all-important group photographs. We never want this to take over your day, so we suggest just a small number of ‘formal’ photographs to be taken. Chosen by yourselves, we will endeavour to work through your list as efficiently as possible, getting you back to your guests as soon as possible.
Stapleford Park was the perfect backdrop for these group photographs along with a few moments with Emma and David together.
The beautifully dressed Grand Hall played the perfect host to the speeches before it was time for the wedding breakfast. The hall had been decorated following Emma’s theme perfectly, a candle lit room filled with autumn colours, woodland creatures and even conkers for the guests to play with. Such an original idea!
As the evening drew in, we headed into the main house armed with off camera flash and a very contented Bride and Groom for a few more photographs to add into their wedding album.
Inevitably, the evening do was soon under way which signals that it is time for us to head off but not before capturing the emotions of the first dance.
