For a March day the weather on Mikaela & Scott’s wedding day was fantastic. Blue skies and sunshine put a smile on everyone’s faces!
Redworth Hall, the venue for the wedding is a favourite of ours, a beautiful, Jacobian styled country hotel with many of it’s original features and gorgeous grounds. We are always spoilt for choice as to where to photograph the happy couple!
We arrived at Redworth Hall and made our way to the room where Mikaela and her bridesmaids were getting ready. It was a hive of activity but, surprisingly, everyone seemed very calm. Mikaela looked beautiful with simple yet classy hair and a gorgeous fascinator and when she put her dress on her flower girl said “Miki is a princess”! The father of the bride had a tear in his eye as he first saw his beautiful daughter in her dress but managed to keep his composure.
Scott was relaxed and at ease when we photographed him, ‘the boys’ and his close family before the service. We took some more formal shots in the doorway of Redworth Hall and then got some great natural shots of the boys walking towards us and the fantastic architecture in the background.
We photographed the service in the Great Hall from two viewpoints. Jane shot from the front, capturing Mikaela and Scott’s facial expressions and, of course, ‘the kiss’ and Sarah shot from the balcony, capturing the whole room and the atmosphere.
After the service, everyone came to the front of Redworth Hall for the drinks reception. It was so nice to be able to shoot casual shots of the guests enjoying themselves in the sunshine, especially after such a long, cold winter. Jane photographed the formal groups whilst Sarah shot casual photographs of the guests and then they both took the bridal party to the Summer House. We even got some fun shots of Scott giving Mikaela a piggy back!
We had a great time photographing Mikaela & Scott’s wedding, they are a really friendly, fun-loving couple and we wish them all the happiness in the world. We hope that they had a fantastic honeymoon and look forward to them coming to the studio when they return to see their photographs for the first time.
