A gorgeous summery sky heralded the wedding day of Caroline and Ray.
Hurlston Hall was the venue and what a place to hold your wedding!
There are spacious cottages available for the bride and bridesmaids to prepare for the day ahead in a comfortable setting and within easy reach of the ceremony room. A duck in the porch seems to be offering a warm welcome - or is he there to quack an alarm if the groom gets too close?
The ceremony room has floor to ceiling windows across the whole width. Apart from letting natural light flood the room they also allow a view of the golf course which provides an amazing scenic backdrop for wedding photography. The whole ceremony and the speeches were captured without the need for flash photography thus giving a much more natural set of wedding photographs.
Outside there are extensive grounds with little pathways leading to who knows where. We wandered and found a little practice green for putting. This was used to good effect for a couple of golf themed shots of the bride and groom.
Further round is a very scenic fishing lake surrounded by ancient trees which facilitated the capture of some reflection photos. Back to the guests and time for speeches with candid photos showing folk really enjoying the moment - or not in the case of one little boy who preferred to socialise with the outside world.
Altogether a wonderful day of wedding photography at Hurlston Hall and one I was privileged to be able to capture for Caroline and Ray.
