A recent wedding at the stunning Rudding Park, a luxury hotel in North Yorkshire. Charlotte and Alex got married at this beautiful venue this April. The day went without a hitch and although it wasn’t bright sunshine the weather was pretty good. I rocked up to the venue to meet the girls for the bridal prep and was met by a room full of bridesmaids and flowers girls all happy and busy getting ready. Alex also got ready on site in a room on the other side of the building so as to avoid seeing Charlotte before her big reveal. The ceremony took place in the Radcliffe room which is a stunning room to photograph. Alex looked very happy as Charlotte walked in with her Dad on her arm. She looked absolutely gorgeous in her Maggie Sottero dress . The ceremony was very moving with laughter and a few tears during the readings.
One of the things I loved about this wedding was how much the guests got involved which provided plenty of opportunities for photographs. There was a fantastic confetti throw, that involved a lot of string being wrapped around the couple, also a confetti bomb on the dance floor which is always great fun and they even had sparklers at the end of the night. The location was also incredible for both indoor and outdoor couple photographs, we used the extensive gardens and also moved indoors for some shots on the staircase under the striking crystal chandelier.
I thoroughly enjoyed photographing this wedding day, there was a lovely friendly atmosphere and the whole wedding party looked like they had a thoroughly good time. A huge congratulations to Charlotte and Alex and all the best for a wonderful future together.
