Oliver and Kay married at Waterton Park Hotel on the outskirts of Wakefield on Friday. Following a week of continuous wet and miserable weather it was with just a hint of optimism the forecast showed it being a relatively dry wedding day and maybe even brightening for a short period of time, although not superstitious, we managed to cross everything possible.
The plan had been for a barn owl to swoop in and deliver the wedding rings during the ceremony, however the bird became a little shy at the given moment and with all element of surprise lost the handlers eventually managed to coax the bird down to the best man so he could present the rings. Thankfully the Sybil the Owl lost her shyness later as she posed for photographs outside with Oliver and Kay.
The ever threatening sky made a superb background for the wedding photographs and thankfully the rain managed to just about hold off allowing us to shoot everything outdoors.
