Can I just say how good I think this venue is?
Wooton Park is absolutey crazy beautiful. I've shot here many many times and I still don't think I've explored it all. I can't wait to get back there and find even more great locations and textures to bring to my wedding images.
What was the vision for your wedding?
I wanted a natural, outdoors wedding where everyone could relax and have fun. We had laser clay pigeon shooting at the wedding which was a big hit with guests. Outfits and accessories I went out for a day with two of my bridesmaids and got my dress on the same day, from a boutique in rugby. The groom got his suit made for him from Mos Bros, and his grooms men all had suits n the same fabric mate. The suits were sent to shops close to where they all lived, some of which being in Dublin. Ceremony/church/venue We had our ceremony in on of the barn style rooms at our venue, we couldn't have it outside by the lake as planned because it rained.
Di you have a photographer and cinematographer?
We had one photographer (he was brilliant) who went to the house where the groom was getting ready in the morning. He then came to the bridal room when the girls got ready. He captured every kind of photo we wanted, staged, behind the scenes and natural. He was so good we didn't even know he was there during the speeches.
How do you pick your styling?
We had flowers done by a lady called Emma, she is the wife of an ODP that I worked with in the NHS. We rented a sweets kart off of facebook, that was actually the first thing we did for the wedding because snacks are life! Everything was very neutral and natural, and the color scene for clothing was grey, white and navy.
What were the best memories from your day?
The best memories from our day were the shooting games. We got incredible photos posing with the guns with the bride and bridesmaids, groom and groomsmen and then with bride and groom. But our favorite wedding photos are the ones in the wheat field. The photographer even held my shoes for me, who could ask for more! Advice for other couples Have a plan of what photo's you'd like, but let your photographer take the lead, its what they are best at. And have a practice shoot before the wedding, you get comfortable with your venue and the photographer.
Your advice for new brides and grooms?
The best things we had at our day were the garden games, everyone loved the mini golf and shooting and it helped to prevent a dip between the wedding and reception!
