I always enjoy shooting wedding photography at Fairlawns Hotel especially when I get to work with great couples like Isabelle and Richard. Fairlawns Hotel is such an elegant and stylish venue which offers a bespoke wedding service making it the perfect choice for Isabelle and Richard’s wedding. When I shoot Fairlawns Hotel wedding photography and I always like to arrive early on the day to get some shots of everybody before the ceremony. First, I went and saw Isabelle and took some images of her as she made her final preparations. Isabelle really suited being a bride, she looked amazing in her dress and beamed her infectious smile all day long.
Richard arrived shortly after her so I had a chance to catch up with him and his grooms’ party as well who were all in good spirits and looking very dapper, the handsomest being the two young nephews! (Sorry Richard, but you were out-cuted there!)
I then made my way downstairs to take some relaxed shots of Isabelle and Richards excited guests, who were happily mingling around the hotel. That’s another thing about Fairlawns Hotel weddings, they give their wedding parties exclusive use of the hotel and grounds, which gave the day a lovely friendly laid-back atmosphere that I know was something that Isabelle and Richard really wanted. Fairlawns also allow guests to add their own personality when dressing the venue. Isabelle and Richard had enlisted the help of those talented people at Debonair Venue Styling who had dressed the venue to perfectly complement its luxurious and stylish interiors.
After a lovely ceremony in one of Fairlawns gorgeous reception rooms, everybody enjoyed a drinks reception and I took the chance to take some family and group shots. This was followed by a sumptuous wedding breakfast and three very well received speeches.
Now, can I just say that I learned very quickly on the day that Isabelle, Richard and their guests do like to party and some of my favourite shots of the day were off them all letting their hair down. Cutting the cake and first dance happened in the evening (allowing the evening guests to share in the moment). This was followed by a live band who had the dancefloor packed in no time where Isabelle, Richard and many of their guests remained for the rest of the evening.
A great couple and a fun and friendly wedding full of love and laughter. Congratulations Isabelle and Richard for getting married and allowing me to tell the story of your day. Thanks for allowing me to provide your Wedding photography at Fairlawns Hotel.
