When you’re in the home of Emmerdale, you’ve got to start the day in the Woolpack and that’s exactly how we kicked things off for Laura and Roger’s wedding in Esholt. Whilst the ladies were getting their hair done, we met up with the gents in the famous watering hole where they relaxed with a pint. There was still an hour and a half until the service but Roger and his groomsmen assured me they were there to grab some food, as well as the obligatory pint, before they headed to the church.
Next, it was off to Laura’s parents to check on the ladies, but before any of the grown-ups could think about getting dressed, there was the small matter of getting Laura and Roger’s daughter, Charlotte, fed and ready for her flower girl duties.
Charlotte wasn’t the only one trying to avoid getting her food everywhere! Uncle Jeremy was taking no chances in his clean white shirt and new tie.
This gave us chance to capture some shots of the amazing flowers by Anne-Marie Wilkinson. I always like to look around for a suitable backdrop and was pleased to spot a purple striped cushion. Apparently, Laura’s Dad, Neil likes a good cushion and with this one, I think he made a good call!
With Charlotte sorted it was time for Laura to step in to her dress.
We headed back down to Esholt where we found Roger, safely out of the Woolpack and waiting at the nearby church.
Our first attempt at some Bride and Groom Portraits was interrupted by a rather cute addition to the frame!
So we tried again back at the venue, just up the road at Hoyle Court.
The team at Hoyle Court did a great job with the room.
Following the speeches there was a little time for some photobooth action!
Before it was time to hit the dancefloor.
Congratulations to Laura and Roger it was an absolutely fantastic day! Rache is a huge fan of Emmerdale and so is very jealous that I went to the home of her favourite soap without her. I’m sure we’ll be back in Esholt very soon.
