The Wedding of Holly & Alex - Darren Athersmith

The Wedding of Holly & Alex

The weather forecast for Saturday the 10th November wasn’t too promising and I was due to photograph the wedding of Holly and Alex but luckily, I arrived at The Grange Hotel to sunshine and blue skies. It’s a while since I’ve had the privilege of being a wedding photographer at The Grange but it’s one of my favourite wedding venues and as I walked into the hotel the staff were as friendly and welcoming as ever.


Holly and the girls were getting ready in their room on the second floor and Elly from Peacock Beauty in Kendal was doing a great job with their makeup. Everything was calm but laughter broke out as she opened a card from Alex her soon to be Otter half!


Unusually for these occasions Alex was suited and ready to go so we took advantage of the weather and went outside for some photos of him and his groomsmen.


The morning flew by and Holly and Alex soon became Mr & Mrs Radcliffe with a couple of surprise readings during the service. The weather was still good so we ventured outside again for some formal photos before everyone went in for the speeches and wedding breakfast.


Holly had particularly wanted a sunset photo but unfortunately the clouds had rolled in and the odd spot of rain was falling so it wasn’t to be, we still managed a nice atmospheric photo though.


On to the evening celebrations and ‘Flat Al’ made an appearance and mingled with the guests, even venturing onto the dancefloor at one point. The room was full of love and laughter and the guests danced the night away having a great time to end a wonderful day.



Thanks for having me as your wedding photographer guys and the very best wishes for your future together.


Darren.
