Cara-Lee and Graham’s wedding photographs in Woodlands Park Hotel

Cara-Lee booked me for her wedding after finding the wedding photographer’s section of my main website. She and her fiancee, Graham, had chosen the Woodlands Park Hotel, near Leatherhead in Surrey, as their venue. The bride and groom were based in London and, as it was a fairly straightforward booking and I’m based in Brighton, we dealt with everything on the phone or by email and didn’t actually meet before the day. I made the run up from Brighton in under an hour, in time to catch a few moments of Cara-Lee’s wedding preparations in her room. The wedding was also in the hotel, so it was short walk down the stairs to the ceremony. The bride’s mother and father had made the trip over from Canada for the wedding, together with several other relatives. Daughter Kate made a very pretty bridesmaid and son Adam did a great job as Best Man.

The couple wanted a three hour booking, just long enough for a few shots before the ceremony, the wedding itself, plus some group and portrait shots afterwards. I’m happy to take shorter wedding photography bookings in the week, out of season, or, in this case, when I’ve already done a long wedding in the same weekend. It does limit what you can do, there’s very little opportunity for candid shots and everything is a bit rushed, but we managed to cram a surprising amount into the time available. We were helped by being in one venue for everything. The Woodlands Park Hotel has some spacious and attractive gardens just outside the ceremony room, so we didn’t need to go far to find a location for groups and portraits. We finished at about 6.15pm, just as the light was beginning to fade, autumn is here again.
