We were back at Draycote Hotel recently to photograph the wedding of Helen and Mark. Kev and I met up with both of them at the hotel. Helen had Elaine from Elite Hair Design looking after the hair of the girls and she did a great job. Once again I was working with the wonderful Candice Fuller, make up artist. Make up stayed put all day and looked fab. It is lovely to meet up with regular suppliers including Gary from JLW Sound and Lighting who was in early to sort out the uplighting which added a beautiful ambience for the ceremony. Helen looked amazing in her dress from Brides World in Northampton. Fleurissimo was responsible for the many stunning floral arrangements and bouquets.
The ceremony was very moving. Helen’s Dad walked her down the aisle and then turned round to conduct the service. Such a lovely touch and very special. Helen’s brother and Mark’s daughter, Molly both did readings during the proceedings.
Afterwards we made our way out for the couple portraits and Molly came with us on the golf buggy. It was dry but quite cold so when we got back to the hotel we used the balcony for the family photos. It was then into the Phoenix Suite for the speeches and wedding breakfast. The room looked stunning with help from Rainbow Linen who had also arranged the table stationery.
The evening got under way with cutting of the cake from Karen at Cakes Fabulous Cakes and then the first dance. We had our Photo Booth adding some fun and an awesome firework display from Halo FX also kept everyone entertained.
A huge thank from us to Stephan, Anna and the team at Draycote for looking after us as always. Another great day. Enjoy some of the photos from Helen and Mark’s day.
