This was my last wedding of the year before Caroline and I took the kids over to France for Christmas. I really enjoyed the Virginia Park Lodge wedding of Sarah and Kevin especially as I had photographed Sarah’s sister’s wedding six years ago. It was lovely to see all of her family again.
Here’s some highlights by way of a slideshow and some selected photographs below. I hope you enjoy them!
It was such a fine day outside and with the light streaming in to the bridal suite upstairs in Virginia Park Lodge there was a great atmosphere for everyone getting ready with the children running around giving us all plenty of laughs.
Then it was a short drive up the road to the church for the ceremony. It was another one of those beautiful winter days – nice and crisp with bright sunshine. There was a quick burst of hail and sleet just before Sarah arrived but I’m glad to say that it was dry for her arrival.
The warmth of the church inside was fantastic and it was nice to get a mention from the priest for being unobtrusive. At the end of the ceremony everyone sang Hark the Herald Angels and once the formalities were signed we headed outside into the bright winter sunshine again.
Back at Virginia Park Lodge it was lovely and warm with a great atmosphere as the guests started arriving and getting themselves a drink. For a couple of hours we enjoyed great conversation, music and dancing.
We managed to nip outside for some photographs and afterwards we took some family photographs in the warmth inside with the kids providing musical entertainment with fabulous grand piano in the corner of the drawing room.
Then it was out to the fabulous marquee for dinner and speeches. Without a doubt some of the best speeches I heard all year.
The evening dancing was back in the main house and my favourite wedding band The Big Kahuna showed up to take care of the music and entertainment. It was a fantastic end to an amazing day and I can’t wait to be back later this year for my next Virginia Park Lodge wedding.
I hope you enjoy this small selection of photographs.
