Katherine + Paul

A Golden Autumn Wedding at Kilworth House

Autumn is such a stunning time to have your wedding. Unlike the summer months couples usually always plan for rain and when it doesn't it is just such a wonderful added bonus! Katherine and Paul really did have the most incredible weather for their Autumn wedding at Kilworth House Hotel, the golden sunshine, lengthening shadows and Autumnal warmth meant we had the most stunning backdrop for their portraiture.

The Orangery and Grounds

If you can afford Exclusive Use do! The Orangery at Kilworth Housemakes such a stunning location for the ceremony with its glass frontage.. all that natural light! I have photographed many weddings at Kilworth and it's Orangery surpasses so many venues for it's light, space and ambience. I have even attended a wedding as a guest at Kilworth and to have wedding breakfast in the Orangery is such a luxurious experience.

The sun shone and Katherine and Paul had chosen to have the least group shots as possible so we had extra time to make them fun, and we did! I tend to always photograph my groups on the steps, it means guests are not having to risk their heels sinking into the grass and the Orangery is a great backdrop. It did make me laugh to see a cardboard cut out face being held up by one of the Groomsmen during the portraits - an absent guest I was told, it was a very funny touch!

Speeches and First Dance

The speeches were great with the Best Man drawing a lot of laughs from the guests. The Orangery is such a great location for photographing speeches with enough space to move freely among the guests to capture their reactions.

The evening drew in and Katherine and Paul cut the cake, and they danced to a band in the Orangery. As always I met some truly lovely people who were helpful, kind and a pleasure to spend time with.
