Rogerthorpe Manor Wedding: Kelly & Mark

Ceremony & Reception: Rogerthorpe Manor, Thorpe Audlin, Pontefract, West Yorkshire

Well, it was back to Rogerthorpe Manor again for the second week running and another lovely couple who were happy to do almost anything for a nice set of photos for their album!

It was one of the hottest days of the year (I kept making excuses to go inside and stand under an air conditioning unit) but everyone else seemed to cope really well. They were all being very sensible and drinking plenty of liquids so as not to dehydrate!

There were plenty of activities going on all day to keep me busy photographing people having fun, from the giant Connect 4, Jenga and skittles in the garden (which were supposed to be for the kids) to the mini casino, chocolate fountain and barbecue later on.

Congratulations to Kelly & Mark and a big thank you to them and all the staff at Rogerthorpe Manor for a thoroughly enjoyable day.

Rogerthorpe Manor Wedding: Cheryl & Tony

Ceremony: St Mary the Virgin, South Elmsall, Wakefield, West Yorkshire
Reception: Rogerthorpe Manor, Thorpe Audlin, Pontefract, West Yorkshire

What a lovely day for a wedding photographer! Nice and warm, dry underfoot (so the ladies don't mind walking on the grass in their heels) and intermittently cloudy (so no squinty eyes or harsh shadows). Add to that a lovely couple who were up for anything and a venue with plenty of interesting backdrops and it doesn't get much better!
In addition, there was plenty going on all day with Cheryl & Tony releasing a pair of doves, a magician to keep the guests amused and the evening reception was kicked off with an energetic display of street dance.
A busy day, all in all, and it absolutely flew by. Congratulations to Cheryl & Tony and thanks for a cracking day!
