We love winter weddings as it brings us lots of different challenges with light and weather (although the summer can’t be guaranteed with good weather these days!) We never worry though as we have plenty of experience and also the right lighting equipment to make sure that we deliver images that are consistent all year round. Orlagh and Craig booked us as their wedding photographers having met us at a wedding fayre at Dunchurch Park Hotel in Rugby, Warwickshire which they had fallen in love with as their wedding venue.
We met up with each of them at parents’ homes where they were getting ready. Orlagh and her bridesmaids were very calm when I arrived and everyone was in good spirits. Socorra Stokes did the hair and Kat Kulpa did all the make up. The bouquets were stunning and were such a gorgeous splash of colour for a winter wedding. Craig’s Auntie, Linda Coleburne had put these together. Kev was with Craig and the guys who were all wearing suits from Farleys in Oadby. They both had the car from Cars 4 Your Wedding to transport them to St Peter’s RC CHurch in Hinckley where Father Frank Daly was ready and waiting to greet them.
Orlagh walked down the aisle with her Dad in a beautiful dress from Wedding Belles of Kibworth to meet Craig and the service included some beautiful singing and some very special moments. After a little visit from their pug Presley we all made our way back to Dunchurch Park where Tony was there to meet them and look after their guests for the rest of the day. We managed to get photos outside and even a trip down to the lake which the newly weds were keen to do.
It was then into the Great Hall for the speeches and wedding breakfast. It looked amazing thanks to Gem Celebrations, Pink Tash and Flowers by Michelle and obviously the hard work of Tony and the hotel team.
As it had started to rain later we did what we like to do….just worked with it! We captured a few photos of Orlagh and Craig in the rain 🙂
The evening kicked off with the cutting of a lovely cake by Little Bird Company and then straight into dancing to The Wedding Crashers who kept the dance floor full literally all night.
We had an amazing day and massive thanks to Tony as always who looked after us too.
