I caught up with Liza and Mark on their engagement shoot around Normanton. It was great to learn all about their wedding day plans. They warmed to the camera really well and I knew they would be superstars on their wedding day.
On the morning of the wedding I was greeted by a room full of lovely ladies all busy with hair and make up. There were also two of the cutest little flower girls that I just knew would keep my camera occupied all day. I went about my business capturing the moments that naturally unfolded. It was great to be able to switch between bridal prep and grooms prep as they where both getting ready at Barnsdale Lodge.
I was back at one of my local venues for the ceremony, the lovely Normanton Church. It looked great soaked in sunshine but on this occasion there was a strong wind whipping around which made for some interesting pictures.
As always the registrars delivered a beautiful service and before we knew it everyone was out in the fresh air once more. I took the chance to take some pictures around the impressive grounds of Normanton before we hopped onto the Rutland Belle, which gently took us from one shore to the other, a lovely way to arrive at your reception.
After all the traditional group photos I concentrated my efforts on capturing lots of candid moments. Liza and Mark were great fun to work with, I thoroughly enjoyed this wedding day; they partied long into the evening and ended the night with celebratory cigars .
