It was an exciting time for Jayne and Paul who had chosen to get married at Waterton Park Hotel in Wakefield. The plans for Jayne and Paul were almost complete when we first met then about 2 months prior to their wedding. At our pre-wedding meeting in the hotel we discussed the fine details of their day, colour schemes, anything special we needed to know and if they had any special requests.

On the day of the wedding Jayne and Paul had exclusive use of both buildings at Waterton Park. This was arranged to take into account the needs of their guests, some of whom were elderly or wheelchair bound.

While we were together on the pre-wedding meeting we asked to have a tour of the hotel and get some inspiration for their special day. Through this advanced planning something we chose to do was capture some photographs next to the lake.

On the day of the wedding, it was a beautiful day despite prior warnings of storms.
