Oulton Hall Wedding – Jen & Rich
Oulton Hall in Leeds is a fabulous four star hotel and spa, the perfect setting for a wedding!
When I met Jen & Rich we immediately hit it off, Rich is a super keen sportsman and we got talking about our love of cycling and all things fitness related. It makes the wedding day such a pleasure to be part of when you can relax and know that your bride and groom are relaxed too.
Jen and Rich had their wedding ceremony in St John The Evangelist Church, which just happens to be in the grounds of Oulton Hall! The church is very grand and also has amazing light. A lot of churches are dark places so it makes a nice change. There was a choir brought in especially for the day, a gospel choir, it really brought the service to life!
After the ceremony the guests made their way up to the hotel (it’s just a short walk) as Jen and Rich took the scenic route up the main drive in their open top car. We managed to get a great shot of them with the car outside the main entrance before we wandered through to the drinks reception.
There wasn’t much time during the drinks reception to get any relaxed portraits of Jen and Rich so I concentrated on the drinks reception. We snook out at the end of the meal and made use of the lovely evening light. We also got the chance to use some of the hotel reception rooms, the first shot on this post post was taken then.
The evening entertainment was handled by Richard Daniels a fabulous singer from Yorkshire, he managed to fill the dance floor from the first note…at least after the first dance had finished 😉
