Wow what an amazing day was had by Charlotte and Paul at the stunning and luxurious Carden Park Hotel in Cheshire. Carden Park is one of the top hotels in the UK and a championship golf course. It truly is a magnificent venue to choose for a wedding. As a bit of a change from the normal blog post today I am going to share the Graphi Album pages instead of my selection. How I normally work with designing a wedding album is to allow the bride and groom to choose their favourite images and then I set about designing the album, each album is fully bespoke and totally unique and individual. I use what is in my opinion the finest albums in the world and the albums are hand made in Italy, Graphi Albums. If easier I can also choose the photos for the album, sometime the task of choosing the wedding photographs for your album is much much more difficult than you would imagine. Enjoy the wedding album and if you would rather see it as a slide show the link is here.
A beautiful Cheshire sunset across the Greens at Carden Park to start the blog. I don’t think I could of ordered better light and I don’t think I could of worked with a lovelier couple. It was a truly magical day at one of the UK’s Top Venues.
This is page one and two of the beautiful Graphi wedding album, the finished produced had luxurious paper and rally the computer screen doesn’t do the wedding album justice. Make up, flowers and dresses and has luck would have it the bedroom overlooks the garden and the whole setting up procedure can be viewed from above. Which maybe wasn’t so lucky today as it was incredibly windy and the outside wedding was in question right up to the last minute. Funny in the wedding service I cannot really remember it being windy, maybe someone was smiling and the wind abated for the service.
The wedding waiting game. For the men this time must be the longest of the whole day. An outside wedding in the UK isn’t very common!
A last chat with Father and then the walk to meet her Prince Charming. A very tender moment.
A truly delightful service, Carden Park is a beautiful venue.
The Group Shots.
The Entourage, that people who make the day, and a little one who wanted to play.
Speeches, a time to reflect, the odd tear and much laughter. The Hunting Lodge at Carden Park is a stunning setting.
The Italian Garden, and a moody sky.
Carden Park has a wonderful backdrop of Gardens and Gold Courses and the building itself is rather smart.
Up at the 18th Tee looking over the Cheshire Plain from the the Sandstone Ridge. My house is down there somewhere not that far away. As the crow flies I must live only be about three or four miles from Carden Park. And what a wonderful spot for a wedding.
A beautiful couple on their biggest of days. It was such a joy to photograph Charlotte and Paul on their wedding day. And how lush is that gold course.
Charlotte looked amazing on her big day, and what a beautifully dress with the finest of detail. The weather in the day was incredibly changeable with the high winds and luckily we had a beautiful blue sky with just a smattering of high level cloud to give the sky a bit more ooomph. Funny how a perfect blue sky isn’t half as dramatic as one with a few clouds in it.
Now we are back at the Hunting Lodge for the first dance.
Being June the sun set was rather late so before going home we sneaked out into the gardens to take advantage of the wonderful light.
Carden Park at Sunset and the fountains just add a bit of decadence to a beautiful lake. I love this wedding photograph.
Carden Park is a magnificent hotel.
And for me at least the day is over as the Cheshire sun drops below the horizon on this most beautiful of days. For everyone else the party was just beginning.
I had such a fantastic time with Charlotte and Paul at Carden Park, they were a total joy to work with as were their families. It was an honour and a privilege to be part of such an amazing day and I trust they now have a wedding album which will give a life time of memories. Or longer. Something to pass down through the generations.
Thank you for taking the time to read the blog.
See you all again very soon.
