Clare and Martin's wedding at Tatton Park in Cheshire was a complete joy to work on for many reasons. Not only was I working at Tatton Park in Knutsford, a place I know very well having done a two year project called Tatton 365, www.markwilliamsonphotography.com/tatton-365, but this was the wedding of an old friend of mine, who I have spent many a cold Saturday afternoon playing rugby with. So to see him marry his beautiful bride, Clare, and be a part of that day was a privilege. Clare and Martin are both full time, busy professional and were struggling for time to put their wedding together so they chose to book Kristin to help put their wedding together and run the day for them to ensure that it all went as they had planned. Midsummers day was the date of choice and the theme pretty much set itself in the stunning surroundings of Tatton Park.
The room was dressed with antlers shed by the estate deer during the Spring rented out by www.mrandmrsw.com and finished by the team at Living Colour, www.livingcolourflowers.co.uk . Along with www.lightech.co.uk providing the lights, the room looked great.
The wedding was in Sale and after the service it was back to Tatton. We grabbed some photos on the drive, followed by a few family photos, then the rest of the day was natural, reportage wedding photography. After the speeches I wanted to try and grab a shot in the park and maybe get some deer in. A couple of Fallow stags were very courteous and obliged and we headed back to the party.
As is often the way with friends weddings, I was ordered to ditch the cameras later on and enjoyed a few catch up drinks with Chads and some other former rugby playing chums. Along with most other parents my age, I was soon gracing the dance floor to the soundtrack from Frozen. Always the sign of a good party!
