It was huge pleasure to be asked to capture Beth & Dans big day. They had booked me quite some time before their actual day and it was one i was eagerly awaiting as it would be my first wedding at Mount Pleasant Hotel near Doncaster.
I always enjoy shooting at new venues and take the time to explore them beforehand with the couple, normally at their pre wedding photoshoot. Mount Pleasant had a fantastic array of photo location opportunities but i don’t think they were expecting to have photos taken in the car park, more about that later.
Once the girls were all ready it was off to the church for their ceremony and then onwards to Mount Pleasant Hotel for their wedding breakfast & reception. The room looked amazing with decor supplied by Sophia’s Final touch.
We had a short period of time ahead of the wedding breakfast & speeches to take some group images before exploring the beautiful gardens for some couple portraits and just before heading in for their meal the wedding party had a ballon release sending love to the skies remembering absent family & friends.
After a short but heavy downpour, and i do mean heavy, some guests were stranded under parasols outside for some time, i took a look at the sky and instantly thought we could make the most of what others would probably avoid. I took the couple to a far corner of the car park, found a bit of a puddle and made some epic images.
The rain didn’t dampen their spirits, intact their day was full of emotion, happiness and some truly emotive moments and from start to finish it was a real pleasure to be a small part of their special day.
Beth had gone to town with the detail & planning and wanted a timeless emotive portfolio of images and judging by her response i think i fulfilled the brief.
I hope you enjoy these images below as much as i enjoyed making them!! If you would like to find out more about my wedding photography services please do check out my website & Facebook page or get in touch via email. I’d love to hear from you.
