Liz and Jason were married at Highfield Park on a chilly but mostly dry day in November. They prefer natural photographs, so this wedding was shot mostly in a documentary style, with just a few formal portraits. The day started at home with Liz getting ready along with her parents, bridesmaids and some friends. Everyone was very relaxed and looking forward to the day. Then it was off to Highfield park, where Jason was making his final preparations at the venue. A lovely ceremony was followed by drinks in the bar, while the fantastic entertainment that Liz and Jason had arranged for their guests was being prepared for the evening celebrations. A marquee at the back of the hotel was done out like a fair ground, with arcade games, coconut shy, hooplar, darts and shooting galleries. There was also candy floss, a photo booth and cocktail bar, with juggling waiters and all the tables were well stocked with bottled beer. Evening guests were greeted by a fire performer and a lady on stilts at the front of the hotel and entertainment was provided later by the excellent live band The Tzars.
It really was a wonderful day, a little bit different and great fun to be there to capture the photos. Here is a small selection of shots from the day.
