Debra and Wayne had a lovely intimate service at Etrop Grange Hotel. Having been together for many years they finally decided to tie the knot. The day began with Debra getting ready together with her bridesmaids, who were also her daughters. The mood was very relaxed with lots of beaming smiles. Shortly before Debra got into her wedding dress, I disappeared to capture Wayne and his bestman, both of whom looked very dapper.
Shortly after, I photographed the guests who were mingling outside around the conservatory area. Not only was sun out but in addition all the guests were having a lovely time. Ten minutes before the service I returned to Debra’s room to capture her nervously walk down to meet Wayne. Debra looked stunning.
The ceremony, although intimate and emotional was nevertheless full of smiles from the guests. The service was held in a beautiful atmospheric room with grandiose chandaliers.
After The Service
Following on from this, we went outside where I captured the guests congratulating them. Shortly after, I arranged some formal group photos in the beautiful grounds. In due time, I took shots of the bride with her bridesmaids which was quickly followed by some spontaneous fun photos of them.
Whilst guests mingled, I was able to concentrate on just the couple. I like to work very quickly during this time so as not to keep them away from their guests for long.
Indeed, the room was beautifully laid out with seat and table dressings together with the most amazing flower display placed around the room.
Congratulations Debra and Wayne! Wishing you all the best for the future.
Here are just a few of the photographs taken on the day.
