The Station House Hotel is a magical place in the late summer and we were blessed with good weather for Leanne and Eamonn's outdoor wedding. Having two photogrpahers meant Lorraine met up with the bride in the Station House while Denis travelled out to Eamonn's house for the morning preparations.
Back at the Station House the guests were arriving and gathering at the turntable for the outdoor ceremony. The turntable has to be one of the most beautiful locations for an outdoor ceremony. Surrounded by trees and steeped in history it provides the perfect backdrop for a wedding.
The ceremony was performed by the wonderful Mary Losty of Spiritual Ceremonies who we've had the pleasure of working with many times.
After the cermony it was back to the hotel for a chilled relaxed drinks reception in the glorious sunshine where the guests were treated to drinks and canapes while we took the opportunity to get the family pics done.
The beauty of the Station House is the gorgeous grounds in front of the hotel. The woods and little pathways provides the perfect location to bring the bridal party for some photos without taking them away from their guests for too long.
The outdoor drinks reception was the perfect place to do the speeches before dinner. The guests stood around with their drinks which made the speeches informal and relaxed. More importantly it made them fun with lots of laughter and slagging.
After the speeches the guests sat down to dinner in the gorgeous Carriage Suite which was recently decorated. Once the meal finished the band set up for the dancing. While that was happening we brought the happy couple outside for a night shot in front of the old Signal Box which is now the stunning and unique bridal suite.
