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.

View of Waterton Park Hotel, Walton Hall on the island

Weddings at Waterton Park Hotel are always very special due to the wonderful location on a private island on the lake

The trees are still fresh, as if Spring has only just unfurled, as the light catches the water while the fisherman cast their lines and the Geese go about their day….

 

Kirsty and Paul chose Waterton Park Hotel for their 15 May 2011 wedding day, which started bright and early with all the little ones in the large en-suite room in the new part of the building.  This room has changed quite a bit since our first ever wedding here in June 2002 for Lisa & Paul.  Gone is the four poster bed, replaced by normal beds… but the charming mirror is still there, just moved to a better light for makeup by the window.

Martin & Leanne have chosen lots of posed family pictures from a selection of the literally hundreds of reportages shots taken  on their wedding day.  We don’t mind which pictures the couples choose so long as we have covered everything to give them those choices – sometimes even choices they didn’t ever imagine in advance – but in this case Martin & Leanne had it all planned out!

Signed wedding at Waterton Park Hotel near Wakefield

Tuesday, June 9th, 2009

http://weddingphotos-video.co.uk/blog/?p=1057

This was my first ever wedding where 50-70% of the guests communicated using their hands and their vibrant facial expressions.  Martin & Leanne’s vows –  instead of being spoken –  were expressed visually with flying hands and dramatic gestures, transmitted for those who like me do not know how to sign, by an official sign language interpreter who also speaks standard English!

Signed wedding at Waterton Park Hotel near Wakefield

Every other aspect of the wedding was filled with exuberance, as apart from lack of auditory speach, these guys had it all!

Talking of speach, the wedding speeches were very  different as both the bride and groom, best man and ushers all communicate with powerful sign language -rather different for the videoman to capture!

George the video man at Martin & Leanne’s wedding at Waterton Park Hotel

He would need to capture both the signing and the Interpreter so needed to be everywhere at once!

The groom dramatically signs his wedding speech

The groom dramatically signs his wedding speech, giving such an emotional performance, that the signing translator was hardly needed for the hearing guests.  Plenty of laughs too!

Leanne and Martin had researched their wedding very well indeed so even though I couldn’t direct using sound like I normally do, they just arranged everything exactly how THEY wanted, which was brilliant!
