On a rather wet day in October, I had the pleasure of shooting the wedding of Tara and David at Tatton Park. They were awesome, a really fun couple to work with, and no amount of rain was going to dampen their spirits. I began the day at Holy Angel’s Catholic Church in Hale Barns were I met David and the guests.
Although David looked a little nervous, he quickly relaxed as I began taking his photo. Looking very dapper, he walked towards the church, where he was greeted by guests using the new covid greeting sign.
Despite restrictions of only 15 guests, this popular couple had many other friends arrive at the church. From a distance they waved over with brollies in hand. They even waited outside during the hour long service to congratulate the newly weds.
As Tara arrived in a vintage Rolls Royce, she looked absolutely stunning. I was soo in love with her dress, especially the beautiful detail on the sleeves. Soon, Tara walked down the aisle with her very proud father towards her future husband. As light filtered through the stained glass windows together with the sound of the harpist, it really was a magical atmosphere. Although intimate and emotional, their service was filled with enjoyment and lots of smiles.
Soon after we made our way to Tatton Park. As guests mingled I we took a few formal group photos and then we made use of the beautiful pillars of the historical building for more informal and relaxed shots. Due to the rain, we also had the opportunity to take photographs on the opulent staircase in the Lord Egerton’s Apartment.
Shortly after, everyone headed into the beautifully decorated room for their delicious reception meal.
A huge congratulations Tara and David!
