Kat and Neil are such lovely people and it was a pleasure to be asked to be their photographer. When I met them for their pre-wedding shoot and they talked me through their plans I knew it would be a really fun wedding. Neil told me they were having afternoon tea instead of a traditional wedding breakfast (anyone who knows me or who has seen my main website should know about my love for tea). They also mentioned that they were having a ceilidh which is always a great way to get everyone on the dance floor.
It was my first time shooting a wedding at Swinton Park and I must say it’s now my new favourite venue. Not only is it a beautiful, luxury castle set in amazing grounds making it the perfect backdrop to a wedding, but but all the staff did a fabulous job to accommodate the guests’ needs. Their attention to detail was second to none and it was so nice as a wedding photographer to have a venue say “yes” to my requests. A special thank you goes out to the toastmaster Eric Porter who was brilliant at keeping me informed every step of the way.
The day was wonderful, Kat looked amazing, the ceremony was lovely with plenty of tears. Everyone enjoyed their afternoon tea, all the guests were fab, the ceilidh was hilarious and people got involved in my fun booth. I really do love my job, particularly on days like this!
