Wedding Photographer at Exton Park
I love living in Rutland, it’s such a beautiful county, and (for its size) has so many beautiful wedding venues – it also means that I often get to be an Exton Park wedding photographer.
There were so many personal touches at this wedding, the use of Sam’s grandfather’s vintage cars, the old Barker’s signs company van, his uncle doing a flyover (which I was a little worried was going to be a fly into as he was pretty low…) – these are the sort of things which make a wedding. The speeches were great, including the guitar solo from the best man.
Read on to see some thoughts from Kary and Sam on their day.
Exton Park is situated in the heart of Rutland close to the A1, north of Rutland Water between Oakham and Stamford, 30 minutes from Leicester and Peterborough. It is principally the private home of Viscount Campden, his wife and their three children. The Hall, on Exton Park, not normally open to the public, provides a beautiful, peaceful and above all quintessential English setting for a limited number of weddings and events.
Exton Estate contains several different areas, which means that whatever wedding you are planning they can cater for your requirements. You can have a civil ceremony at Fort Henry, a religious ceremony at the catholic chapel within Exton Park. The grounds of the park offer a beautiful setting to have a marquee wedding – and really make it your own.
Photography in the Park
Exton Park is beautiful for wedding photography – after the meals and speeches were done, we took some time to go for a relaxed walk and get some couples portraits. A nice wide angle lens enables me to take in all of the action through the speeches and bridal prep especially. I don’t carry tripods, big flash units, monopods etc. I like to travel light with photographic gear, that was I can just document your day as it happens.
Katy and Sam’s Wedding Day
Here’s some information from Sam and Katy themselves about their beautiful wedding day.
We met around 9 years ago at secondary school. Sam was a “popular kid” and I was a “nerd”. We first started talking on good old msn when he messaged me by accident, the rest is history.
Sam surprised me with a romantic weekend break in Oxford where he popped the question.
I always wanted a Spring wedding, but with Sam proposing in October there wasn’t enough time to organise and I wasn’t waiting a year and a half! So one night in the pub we randomly picked the 14th July 2018.
We both fell in love with it at first sight. It was grand and different to what other family members had done so we knew we could put our own touches on it.
Don’t listen to anyone, do what you want as a couple. Always budget for more than you think as the temptation is just too hard!
