Orton Hall Spring wedding

November 10, 2016  •  1 Comment

I have known Lisa and Gerry for a number of years and was truly honoured when they asked me to be their wedding photographer.  Every couple is unique and special in their own way but I always feel the pressure slightly more when the couple are personal friends of mine.    After lots of planning the big day finally arrived and I headed off to Orton Hall.  My assistant for the day Pippa, from PS Photography Ltd had not photographed a wedding at Orton Hall before so I completed a walk through and briefed her on the timetable and plans for the day,  here starts my excitement.  Orton Hall has lovely grounds including a beautiful field out the back.  As we walk out I am greeted by a bed of blue on the little woodland,  Bluebells being my favourite flower I was delighted by their presence and noted their position for later in the day.

Lisa and Gerry were very lucky, a May wedding and just perfect weather, the guests were able to retire to the patio for Pimms and canapés while we worked though the formal photography.  It really was lovely capturing the guests and the relaxed images demonstrate the relaxed, fun feel of the day.
