Last autumn I had the pleasure to be asked by Chris and Beth to be their Plum Park Wedding Photographer. This was to be my first time working there and I had been looking forward to documenting their big day.
Plum Park is situated on the A5, just a couple of miles from Towcester and is a privately owned boutique hotel and event venue and looked splendid in the October sunshine.
I arrived around mid morning and was shown to the room where Beth and her six bridesmaids were getting ready, two of whom were Beth’s younger sisters. Everybody seemed very chilled as their hair and makeup was being done, so as usual I worked discreetly, blending into the background and consciously not influencing the flow of the preparations.
With the girls now ready and the ceremony getting ever closer, the guests were arriving and taking their places in the conservatory. Beth who looked stunning in her dress, was escorted downstairs by her father and waited whilst her bridesmaids filed in one by one. I love the photo where Chris & Beth’s son (in his page boy role) was stopped in his tracks by another child, who had chosen to lay on the floor as he walked down the aisle. You can see the concern on his face, but he was quickly encouraged to keep going and was picked up and hugged by Chris.
The ceremony was lovely, along with a couple of beautiful readings and once the official paperwork had been completed, all of the guests were asked to wait outside by the main entrance. A few moments later Chris and Beth made their appearance and were showered in confetti.
The balance of the day was relaxed with guests being able to sit outside and enjoy drinks on the patio, before being invited to take their places in the adjoining marquee for the wedding breakfast.
Following the speeches and cake cutting, the evening celebrations got well underway. Once I was happy that I had a good selection of dancing photographs, I bid my farewells. The day had been a joy from start to finish and I felt very privileged to have been a part of it.
Below is a selection of images (and a brief slideshow) from the day and I hope you enjoy looking at them:
