Autumn wedding photography at Rookery Hall
I had the privilege to photograph Rob and Sharon’s wedding at Rookery Hall in the autumn of last year. This is not my first time for Rookery Hall wedding photography, but it was the first time it hasn’t rained all day. In fact it was a beautiful autumn day with the trees turning all sorts of wonderful colours. But what really made this wedding special was Rob and Sharon’s two children. It makes my life easier actually when the bride and groom have children as there is always something interesting to photograph. It might mean running across a field and sliding on my knees to catch them, but they are always there having fun.
Both Rob and Sharon got ready at Rookery Hall, which meant it was easy to get both lots of preparations. After the ceremony it self, it was then the short back over to the old hall, through the ‘gin bar’ and out into the garden’s. The wedding was so relaxed and easy going, no stress at all and everyone had such a good time. You can see from the faces of the guests how much they were enjoying themselves. After a small number of family group photos, I then took Rob and Sharon for a walk around the grounds for more Rookery Hall wedding photography. I don’t pose couples, at most I just ask them to stop for a few seconds at certain points. I really wanted to capture the colours of autumn.
Evening wedding reception
In the evening, there was a feast of Rookery Hall wedding photography to be had. The evening reception room was lit with purple up-lighters and everyone jumped on the dance floor to enjoy the rest of the wedding. I totally relaxed but fun wedding to photograph and I am very much looking to return to Rookery Hall again soon. A huge congrats to Rob and Sharon, and to the kids, thank you for inviting me to share your special day at Rookery Hall with you. Here are just a few photos from their day:
A huge thanks to Andrew Keher for assisting me on the day. My wife was 40 weeks pregnant and Andrew was there to take over just in case I had to run.
