Winter Wedding – Jackie & James

Jackie and James had their wedding in early December at Rushden Hall in Northamptonshire. Having done quite a few portraits shoots in the grounds of Rushden Hall (including Jackie and James’ pre-wedding shoot seen here) I was really looking forward to finally shooting a wedding in Rushden Hall itself.

Having visited the venue I started documenting the wedding at James’ parents house where he and best man Carl were getting ready with Jackie and James’ son Ethan. From the beginning it was clear that Ethan would be the star of the day!

The day of the wedding also happened to be James’ Grandmother’s 90th birthday, so it would have been rude not to have taken a formal portrait of her don’t you think?

So with everyone ready to head off from James’ parent’s house I met up with Jackie at home with her parents and the bridesmaids… soon to be joined by Ethan.

When I met up with Jackie and James for their final pre-wedding meeting about a week before the big day they suggested that they would like some formal portraits taken before it got too dark and therefore prior to their ceremony which was at 3.30pm. I was of course delighted with this suggestion and so we scheduled in about 10 minutes to get some shots taken before they needed to meet with the registrar.

So into Rushden Hall itself where Ethan was once again stealing the show and entertaining the guests until the ceremony began.

Before I left Jackie, James, Ethan, and their wedding guests to enjoy their wedding meal I asked if Jackie and James could brave the chilly December weather for some further portraits. This time, in the dark using some off camera flash, with a little help from best man Carl keeping hold of the lighting set up.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed working with Jackie and James and it was truly an honour to photograph their wedding day. I wish them every happiness for the future.
