Crathorne Hall was built for celebrating, so why not take the whole venue for you and your guests to enjoy? It’s guaranteed to be a house party like no other.
How We Met
This is where I first met Rob & Emma, it was shortly after that party they got in touch to ask about their wedding date which was great to say yes to, and the fact it was at Crathorne Hall again was a little bonus as I love coming back at Crathorne.
A lot had happened from the day we met like they had a beautiful boy "Alf" who I met when I did his newborn photos then a year later I did his christening and now round it up with their beautiful wedding.
The day started and finished at Crathorne Hall, yes the from the bridal preparations to the ceremony and the reception all at the stunning wedding venue of, did I mention it Crathorne!
It was a very relaxed bridal preparation for Emma, just close family Alf was with her too a very handsome pageboy!
It was lovely and very relaxing throughout even with the champagne erupting like a volcano after just unwinding the wire clasp, which caught everyone by surprise!
Rob was getting ready at home and I met him and the boys later on surprise they were at the bar, having a great time and hoping to settle the nerves a bit.
Alf decided he didn't want to walk down so Rob went to join him and lifted him and they came down together which is one of my many stands out pictures from the day, real moments that they will remember. Following them down the aisle was their little flower girl that decided to stop at her mum's side and stay before Rachel the next bridesmaid, came and took her by the hand to go the rest of the way. The ceremony was just perfect, Alf had another part to play and that was helping with the rings, another aww moment.
We had a short time for the photos because it was all about celebrating their wedding with their friends and family which I absolutely get, and they still have beautiful portrait images in the 20 minutes that we did do.
Speeches came next which were hilarious, and then onto the night, the dance floor, it was so much fun and very lively the dance floor was where it was happening and we even had props like cowboy hats, blow up unicorns...
