Katie and Daniel’s wedding day at Barnsdale Hall had finally come around and what a day it was. I loved every moment. They had put so much effort into planning their day and it really paid off.
It was a gorgeous summers day at Barnsdale Hall and when I meet all the bridal party that morning, they were all bursting with excitement. It was endless smiles and giggles throughout the bridal prep, perfect for some natural photographs.
Their daughter Isabelle was racing around; trying to keep up with her was a bit of a challenge but I managed to capture some lovely images of her.
It was a special moment when Katie’s Dad laid eyes on his daughter for the first time in her dress, I just loving capturing these emotional moments.
A quick ride in a golf buggy and the bridal party were ready to walk down the aisle.
They were fortunate enough to be having an outside ceremony, accompanied by a live orchestra. As the bride walked towards her husband-to-be it really was a powerful moment. The registrars provide a beautiful service and Barnsdale provided the perfect setting. As the Orchestra played the whole wedding party were singing at the top of their voices, including myself and within no time the bride and groom had become husband and wife.
After the service everyone enjoyed socialising on the terrace, they had ice cream, pimms and garden games to keep them entertained.
We could take our time over all the required photos and the whole day just flowed perfectly.
Inside, the venue had been dressed so beautifully. All the little intimate touches gave the room a real unique feel and the flowers were just superb.
After the formalities I took the couple off around the grounds of Barnsdale using the beautiful backdrop of Rutland water, it is such a lovely county.
As it was the height of summer I suggested we went again to the shores of Rutland water for some sunset images, they both obliged and we were treated to a lovely sunset.
After a good old boogie we ended the day with some moonlit photography, a magical end to an unforgettable wedding day.
