Emily & Richard ~ New Hall Hotel

Emily & Richard’s Wedding was a huge treat for me as it was my first ever outdoor ceremony at the stunning New Hall Hotel… and boy it was the most gorgeous day… if not a tinsy bit too hot 😉

Emily is originally from America and was very lucky to have many of her family and friends take the trip over the pond to attend a very British wedding, and you couldn’t get more English than a wedding at New Hall Hotel, steeped in History with the original moat still running around it and stunning grounds.  Emily & her Bridesmaids were running around in true fashion getting the final preparations ready for the big day.  Emily’s beautiful gown hung, waiting to be put on and I knew she was going to look stunning.  I also couldn’t wait to see everything come together as planning a wedding where 5 of your 6 Bridesmaids come from the States is no mean feat, but Emily & Richard coordinated it beautifully, with big thanks of course to Richard’s sister who was chauffeur when they returned to the Midlands from London for all their meetings.  Richard and his Groomsmen all scrubbed up very nicely and did a wonderful job of keeping him calm as he waited for his Bride, and he didn’t have to wait too long until the guests were all seated in the Walled Rose Garden for the ceremony.  Emily walked on the arm of her very proud Dad and their smiles reached from ear to ear.  It was a lovely ceremony with a heartfelt reading from Richard’s Dad and a lovely touch when the rings on the cushion were passed around all the guests for them to wish the happy couple well.  The declarations were made, rings exchanged a their first cheeky kiss shared.  After the formalities it was time for our newlyweds to walk back down the aisle and start the celebrations.  As you will see below everyone was up for lots of fun and that is exactly what we had, as well as some beautiful intimate moments with the new Mr & Mrs Blunt.  Emily & Richard did so well as it was possibly the hottest day of the year so far, and all I can say is what a wonderful day it was.

Thank you Emily & Richard for asking us to photograph your very special day, it was a real honour, here’s to a long and happy life together.

A big thank you Cara & all her staff at New Hall Hotel for all their hard work, a pleasure as always… Sally x
