Oulton Hall wedding
The rain held off for us again on Friday, and this time we even saw a break in sunshine in the afternoon. Emma and Alex were married at St Ignatius Church in Ossett, before travelling to Oulton Hall for their wedding reception in the Oulton Suite, a favourite of mine because the ceiling goes multi coloured for the disco and makes nice photographs. Oulton Hall of course is fabulous anyhow and makes a gorgeous backdrop for wedding photographs.
Emma got ready at home before travelling to church with Rolls Hire.
The guests were entertained during the service by a very amusing priest, before moving over to Oulton Hall for the wedding reception itself.
Anyone at the wedding could not have failed to have been impressed by the efforts of the best man – I’ll not go into the detail otherwise we’ll have every football manager in the country inundated with requests from ‘roving reporter’ best men, but this was something special. A very clever idea, well executed, with a genius touch strip ‘Spurr 10’ as ‘you know who’ turned and walked from the camera. A real treat for the fans and for ‘Booth’ himself 😉 I’ve seen plenty of best man ‘efforts’, this was up with the guy who hired a tank for the morning to drive the groom to church in, who we photographed last year. I didn’t choke up, I had something in my eye, honestly guv. No, I’m not a Town fan either, I just appreciate when I’ve witnessed a blooming good effort.
Thanks were given during the speeches to Vicky at Oulton Hall for a wonderful setting and meal, and for helping the day run so smoothly.
So here are a few teasers from the day.
