Wedding Photography Hardwick Hall Hotel | Mel and Jon | And Ever After Photography
Only a few weeks previously we had met up with Jonny and Mel in the Lake District for their pre wedding photography shoot, then before we knew it, their wedding day had arrived. We met up with Mel as she and her bridesmaids were starting their preparations getting their hair done and putting the finishing touches to their make up. Then it was on with the dresses, the shoes and the final checks before it was off to the church. Mel looked absolutely stunning as she arrived at the church and despite the English summer rainy weather brightened everywhere up with her terrific smile. Jonny waited nervously but patently in the church for his bride to be who was of course fashionably late.
After the ceremony it was outside for the longest confetti run I have ever seen, time for a few photographs before it was time to head to Hardwick Hall where the wedding breakfast was to be held. After the meal it was time for the speeches with a great tag team entertaining effort by the best men Shane and Andrew. The proper summer weather then made a fantastic appearance and bathed everywhere in glorious evening sunshine. We were able to get some terrific photographs as Jonny and Mel explored the amazing grounds at Hardwick Hall.
Time for a bit of a relax before the evening guests arrived and then it was cutting of the wedding cake followed straight away by Jonny and Mel’s first dance together as man and wife. As we left the dance floor was packed with family and friends with Jonny and Mel right in the middle having a fab time, this party was going to go on for a long time yet. A huge congratulations to Jonny and Mel, Mr and Mrs Donald. Please enjoy some of the photographs from your very special day.
