David and Grace were married on Sunday in a Civil wedding ceremony at Waterton Park Hotel near Wakefield. The day started nice and early as I joined Grace at her parents home just after nine for some preparation photographs. Make up and hairdressing were in full swing as I arrived, it was hard to gauge who was the most excited the bridesmaids or Grace! It was going to be a fun day!

Following the prep photographs it was over to Waterton Park Hotel to join my assistant Alex before Grace arrived. With a little time for some photographs of David and his groomsmen we were waiting as Helen arrived to the rapturous cheers and assorted noise making from the bridesmaids! – See photos below.

Following the civil ceremony we quickly headed outside for some photographs before the cold began to bite. The resilience of brides in this weather is truly amazing and it really helps ensure they get some superb wedding photographs. There were a number of formals to photograph today but thanks to some great work from the ushers we quickly plowed through them, allowing David and Grace some more time in the drinks reception with their wedding guests.

The wedding breakfast was held in the county Suite along with the evening reception. The photographs below include many of those we played on the screen through the evening reception.
