Straight out of 1882, Lottes and Rob’s wedding has been one of those which we’ve had itchy trigger fingers over all year. When we found out about it, it sounded completely unique and totally up our street. Heck, Lottes and Rob even met whilst they were both studying for PhDs in lasers (I’m told this is cooler than it sounds)! But the point is, these guys are so original and so fun we knew we were going to have a blast on this one…
Before we go any further, I think we need to thank some sort of divine intervention, as Lottes worked so hard making every last little detail for this wedding that it was lucky she had any fingers left for Rob to slip that ring onto. (In fact, I think the engagement shoot was mostly spent moaning about riveting love-heart bunting!) Lottes made all the peacock feather details and they made such a special touch to a unique wedding.
Meanwhile, in a seemingly identical hotel room…
Suited and booted in record time (even with the neckwear fiasco) I whisked them out for a quick portrait shoot.
Back at Bridal HQ:
Ready to be wed, Lottes’ father arrived in full steampunk inspired regalia to whisk her down to her guests and husband to-be waiting downstairs.
The Parkway Hotel adjoins Golden Acre Park on the outskirts of Leeds. A low and lazy golden sun and autumnal leaves made for a perfect setting for group shots and portraits of our newly-weds.
Back at the ranch, I had to grab a portrait of this snazzy couple. The effort into the outfit couldn’t go uncaptured!
After everyone had tucked into a hearty meal, and a moving set of speeches the evenings entertainment rolled on. The pumpkin centrepices are Rob’s handiwork but I’m informed that they are also the centre of a pumpkin-guts/spray-paint/parents-garage-floor controversy scandal. If you ask us, they were totally worth it!
And with that, we’ll leave you to simply imagine photos of drunk people dancing. This concluded our 2011 wedding season with a bang and feeling like we were both wholly integrated into the L+R family. Thanks for such a fun day and have a blast on your honeymoon!
