[Wedding] Tale as Old as Time, Mr & Mrs White's Valentines Wedding at Waterton Park Hotel

When I arrived at Waterton Park, Wakefield on Saturday Morning, 14th February - there was definately no mistaking that there was a wedding here.

With the hearts, signage and pastel ribbons adorning the railings, it was time to go and find Charlotte & her maids getting ready.

Hair and make-up were already underway when I arrived - which meant they were set up and I could work around them. Lucy, Lynzi, Nicola & Heather along with Charlotte's Mum Angela were also in the room before Ava, Charlotte & Mark's daughter arrived a little later.

Charlotte's shoes were No 1 by Jenny Packham lace with gorgeous bow detail. And the beautiful pastel pink and peach bouquet was done by Kelly, at Enchanted Florist, Barnsley - who also did the table decorations & button holes too.

Charlotte's Dress was by Justin Alexander and she looked absolutely BEAUTIFUL - teaming it with a short Veil. 

Charlotte was walked down the aisle and given away by her Dad, Dave. The bridesmaids walked down first before Charlotte headed down the aisle to meet Mark.

Charlotte & Mark's Wedding was the first (and maybe only) Wedding to be held in the Waterton Suite in Walton Hall, whilst work is currently being undertaken at Waterton Park Hotel where the ceremonies normally are.

A string duet played whilst Charlotte walked down to Mark, and again on the way out. Playing beautiful instrumental music. Mark wore a Navy Suit - with a pink Cravat and Handkerchief - whilst the groomsmen matched the Bridesmaids.

Lots of smiles were had, and although a few tears and croaky voices it was totally clear to see how much these two were in love - and relishing in the fact that they were just becoming husband and wife.

After the Ceremony we headed out to the Vintage Bus which had delivered Mark, the Groomsmen and some guests, for some shots as unfortunately the February weather had started to rain a little outside.

Even the Bridesmaids and Groomsmen joined in with the fun on the bus!

The rain didn't and I don't think anything would have dampened Charlotte's smile!

Back inside was where we had to do some of the more formal group shots inside. Silly Rain!

Before, we managed to head out to keep Mark & Charlotte dry, whilst I was the one who got rained on! Part of the job!

Back inside and the Waterton Suite was turned around, the beautiful Cake was from Amandas Cakes - just lovely! I joke with Amanda, that everyone who books me, should book her for their cakes, because I know she will NOT let them down! 

Speeches were delivered by Charlotte's Dad, Dave - Mark and then Paul Mark's Brother and Best Man.

When everyone was chilling after the Wedding Breakfast, I managed to grab a couple of lovely shots of Ava, who was a bit overwhelmed with all the people there - but when there was only a few she was fine. I find that it is typical child behaviour at Weddings - theres a lot going on you know! 

Waterton provides some beautiful area's for "after dark" shots also which can look beautiful and give a different feel to your images.

With the Evening reception starting, the photobooth arriving, it was then time for Mr & Mrs White to take to the dancefloor for their first dance as Husband and Wife. Before we headed outside to play with some sparklers.

Massive Thank You to Mr & Mrs White, for allowing me to be part of their Wedding day!
