Working as an Oulton Hall wedding photographer is always a pleasure as, rain or shine, there’s always somewhere to shoot even if we have to work entirely indoors and I have to say, I was expecting to not get out into the grounds today as the forecast was grim! Not only was there chance of rain but also hurricane winds gusting to over 100mph were on the cards. In the end though, we dodged all but a few light showers and got away with shooting in the grounds albeit briefly. Hannah and the girls got ready in the Bolton Abbey suite which is large and spacious and absolutely fabulous for some prep shots and bridal portraits with oodles of room so that we can shoot candidly as the events unfold as well as posing formally. Once in her dress, I photographed Hannah using the daylight fill from the large windows and softening up an SB800 in a 24″ softbox as key light then it was outside to catch up with Stewart and the boys for their photos ahead of the ceremony in the Repton Room.
Straight after the ceremony, we managed to get everyone outside for a big group shot but the confetti shot proved far more tricky with the petals being blown into oblivion in the stiff autumn breeze and I don’t think a single one was caught on camera! We dashed in and out between a few light showers but on the whole had a not bad run in the grounds for the photos, including a nice rainbow over the couple at one point. It’s amazing how quickly the time goes and shoot gives way to a bit of guest mingling time before the wedding breakfast followed by the evening’s partying in the Claret Jug but I’m pleased with some of the shots and I hope Hannah and Stewart are too. Here’s a selection of images from the day amd if you want to book me as your Oulton Hall wedding photographer, just call the studio on 01924 229800 for a no obligation chat.
