Storybook wedding pictures at Nostell Priory and Waterton Park Hotel

Waterton Park Hotel wedding pictures storybook album cover

Storybook album cover showing Sara & Dan as they cross the bridge onto the island for their wedding reception.

Sara & Dan chose to get married in the lovely chapel at the National Trust-owned Nostell Priory, the bride having got ready at her parent’s home nearby. The following pages tell the story of their wedding day, using just the photos they themselves chose, though with all the unused shots they could easily have created a second album, that showed more of the reportage-/documentary type images.
