What a scorcher! Gin clear skies and not even a breeze made Saturday’s wedding at Oulton Hall the hottest of the year. The mercury climbed to 30c as John and kerry married in a civil wedding ceremony in the Repton Room at Oulton Hall on the outskirts of Leeds. The fantastic light was great for photography but the high temperatures meant we had to work fast to create the images before the guests or the cameras melted!  Mindful of this we decided that the photos of John and kerry should be taken after the wedding breakfast when hopefully the temperature had dropped and we would have a little more shade for them to keep cool.

Oulton Hall is as stunning inside as out and so we began our photo session inside the Hotel before heading back into the sunshine for photographs of John and kerry. The aim was to have a selection of these edited before the evening reception began half an hour later to add to the big screen display we’d already set up. Some speedy work on the Macs ensured we had some of the great evening shots ready before the guests arrived at the Claret Jug for the evening reception. The screen went down a storm!
