Lisa and Anthony Wedding Day
As Wedding day go this was going to be a long day for me, with a good chance it was going to rain.
The Day start at Durker Roods Hotel, Meltham , Lisa room was a hive of activity when I arrived, full of excited bridesmaids and flower girls and more than a couple of bubbly bottles... looks like these girls know how to party!
I then met Anthony and the Ushers at Bartholomew Church Meltham. Lisa and Anthony must be a very popular couple as they had lots of guests at the wedding!
The ceremony photography and video has gone well,
The first problem of the day was I when I opened the doors of the church to go outside the heavens had opened up and the rain was came down, I ask the vicar if I take some formal pictures in the Church, which was no problem, and besides I couldn't really ask Lisa and Anthony to go running to wedding car in the rain.
I did have a choice to take formal pictures at Waterton Park Hotel Wakefield, but it could be rain there as well. Fortunately Lisa and Anthony wedding Reception was late in the day so I could judge how long I have in the Church to photography, by now the rain had stop.
Next we are off to Cowlersley Court Care Home, Cowlersley, Anthony grandma was unable to go the wedding services so Lisa and Anthony have arrange for me take some photograph at the Care Home before arriving at Waterton Hall, the weather was a completely different picture it hadn't rained yet, it had taken me 45 minutes to get there.
Unfortunately the wedding car is not built for speed it had taken Lisa and Anthony almost Hour and half to arrive at Waterton Hall, the place is such a wonderful venue to photographs but now time and possibly rain was going to be a problem.
Lisa and Anthony crossed over the bridge to reception on the Island, time for me take some outside formal photograph, be for the reception.
Here I concentrated on the big group shots, the individual shots I could get later on, it was now time for the reception, by now half the guests were in the reception room so there was no point for Lisa and Anthony to do the meet and greet.
So I decided to take some personal photography time'
Thankfully it didn't rain until the wedding reception.
Emotional speeches were the order of the day as Anthony speech came from the heart, and he had just about all the room in tears too.
Lisa also wanted some “night times” pictures in front of the house
Lisa and Anthony was a great couple to photograph and nothing was too much trouble for them.
