Kirsty and Phillip booked me to cover their wedding at least a year before the big day at one the wedding fairs. I then meet them a couple of more times at the wedding open evenings and got to know them quite well before their wedding this definatley makes a difference..
Kirsty and Phillip were really big fans fo the sitcom "Friends" so had a bit of a theme of that for their big wedding day. I think Hardwick Hall is one of the most beautiful wedding venues in the northeast of england the grounds and service is stunning.
Kirsty and the bridesmaids stayed the night before which I always think works well because if theyre running late you dont have to leave to meet the groom.
We said our quick hello's and checked to see everything was running to plan, I then found phillip and his best man having a bit of dutch courage when they were just having a sip red bull laced with vodka haha.
The couple had the Coleman suite two for the ceremony and Coleman one for their reception which was dressed beuatiful by the Whole Shabang .
Everything was very relaxed and we had a great day with them and their family’s, I returned on the night with a signature mount with an A4 photograph from one of their photos from their day.
On the night we went back down to the lake side with some coloured umbrellas and a large picture frame to recreate a couple of 'Friends' scenes, then onto the lakeside where the sun was setting with perfect timing over the lake.
I have done several wedding at this lovely venue and you dont get a lovely sunset like this very often we just got the timing perfect as it only lasted twoor three minutes.
For the finale they had a great firework display which was brilliant one of the best I have seen for a wedding.
Kirsty and Phillip had a lovely day and it was a great pleasure to be a part of it, Kirsty has already left me a great review on my grange photography Facebook page.
