The lovely Tom & Emma got married at Waterton Park Hotel on 30th August. A lovely Bank Holiday Sunday. We all know what the British Bank Holiday Weather can be like, so teamed with an umbrella I went armed to photograph the nuptials. But I shouldn't have worried, as the sun burst through the clouds to give a lovely, but warm humid August Day.
I started in the morning with Emma getting ready at her Mum & Dads before popping over to see Tom and then back to Emma. Emma's dress was absolutely beautiful, with the lace and tulle, with buttons down the back and finished off with a gorgeous crystal belt. And of course, not to mention the Vivienne Westwood Shoes!
The Vintage Bus that the couple had hired, took the Groom, Groomsmen and partners, and also parents and some family before popping to collect the bridesmaids and then onto the venue. With 11 Groomsmen then it was the more sensible option, as Tom couldn't leave any of his good friends out.
Emma travelled to the ceremony in a beautiful Beauford car with her step-dad, or as she refers to him - Dad. He also walked down the aisle and gave her away to Tom too. They definitely have a special relationship.

The Civil Ceremony was lovely, and tears were shed by the family (and the groom). Especially when everyone saw how radiant Emma looked.
|Oh I do love a good Confetti Shot!|
We took some shots of the couple and the bus before we headed over to the Island at Waterton Park where the reception and evening reception were to take place. First however, was family photographs before we went upstairs to see the room laid out with each of the tables named after different places in New York where Emma and Tom were engaged.
|The Black and White cake also featured a New York theme with the NY Skyline around the top tier|
After Dinner and Speeches, we headed out to take some additional portraits of the gorgeous new Mr and Mrs Walker, it was a little bit cooler now - but not by much before they went to freshen up and party with the rest of their Evening Guests.
